LR4 Slow to Process in Develop, Blurred Display in Print... Slow to Display,

LR3 very fast and problem free on very well equipped computer with SSD's, 16GB RAM, etc.... Dual 24" monitors... No processing problems at all

LR4 very slow to load... Slow to Import photos.

In LR4 Develop all adjustment sliders "hang" or are "jerky" ... processing time for each action much slower than LR3. Strangely, the Adjustment Brush seems to work and process at about the same speed as LR3.

If a photo is selected in LR4 Print it is very blurry when loaded... must go to Develop and back to print to obtain a sharp/clear image.

I am impressed with the program enhancements and new features but I must agree with the many write-ups in different forums that indicate there is a definitive problem with processing functions and speed. As with past versions I suspect it will take an update or two to work out the "kinks"
