Personally I find Lightroom every bit as good as DXO provided you take the time to set up the default conversion settings as you like them. The camera profile / clarity / sharpening and noise reduction relationships are critical to getting initial settings that you like.

I also find DXO painfully slow for conversions when using their 'PRIME' technology.

Everyone does - that's why DXO offers it as an option with that very precaution.

Not me, so 'everybody' is a little wide of the mark, although I acknowledge I'm using it (in trial mode) on the latest MacPro with a 6-core processor.

The problem may very well exist on machines with more modest CPU power, but I don't hesitate to use PRIME on every image in my environment - it's a no-brainer for me.

That must be sweet to work on.  But mainly, thanks for clearing up that broad-stroke assumption [g].
