Alaska does look great but it's extremely alpha, still needs some work imo. Aeon Hitcher looks good too and works well, but it's still a little slow when browsing media.
what is the build you tried, currently using 24368 and no issues, i rarely had issues with DX build, just in the early days when DX was made as an option.
When switching from opengl build to dx build it is good idea to start over with settings.
also don't use Aeon Hitched, it not updated anymore try Aeon Hitched by Ekim.
as far as browsing speed, really have no idea what you are talking about, I have only 10 movies as those are regulary rotated, but i do have over 120 TV Shows with over 4,500 episodes, not counting over 80GB of music.
and everything is grabs meta info from the net.
