Really appreciate you posting this. I have to say, it doesn't really look faster than my Premiere. I am surprised at all of the earlier reports of faster performance on the Elite. Other than the boot time, I'm just not seeing it. I can't believe they made the decision to build the Premiere interface on Flash... You know what, I'll even give them that one. Maybe it makes it easier to find developers (not necessarily good ones), and maybe it makes it easier to hook into Internet content. But, once they made that decision, they should have paired it with the decision to give it hardware (and caching) that can make the interface smooth. I might just sit this one out and wait for the Series 5... In 2011 (almost 2012) there is just NO excuse for lag in a menu-driven interface.
