Preview images are really slow to appear in Lightroom 5

I recently upgraded to Lightroom 5, and have noticed (across various machines) that the preview images are REALLY slow to load (Some don't appear until I move the cursor over their box then they spring to life!)

This is not an issue of PC power specification as I never had these issues in previous versions of Lightroom on the same hardware.

In the "render previews" box I have tried all settings, but have opted for "minimal" in the presumption that this will be quicker (but it aint!)

Seems like a real step backwards, and a niggling frustration to boot!

Previews in LR need a heap of TLC.
