Wow, 1 minute is pretty bad but at least 35 seconds isn't quite as bad. Why does it take so long though?

While those type things aren't show-stoppers, stuff like that can be pretty irritating. I hate the Samsung Combo unit that I have b/c it can take 10-15 seconds to eject a disk that's in the drive. When you're use to something being pretty quick (or happening instantly) delays like that become annoying. I also don't think feeling like that is uncommon. People are always trying to shave time off the boot-time of computers, for example. Does it really kill anyone for a computer to take a minute to boot. No, but do people prefer it take 30 seconds or less. Yes. (* just made up the boot times *)
