Is it slow only when you are connected to your computer using USB? Try it with that cable unplugged.
Otherwise, all I can suggest is that you do a reset and update the firmware.
First, Backup all of your patches using HD Edit.
Second, do a factory reset on your unit by holding down the 'A' footswitch and powering on the HD300.
Third, use Line 6 Monkey to install the latest firmware (1.31 at time of writing I think)
Fourth, restore your patches using HD Edit.
If this does not help then I cannot think of anything else that will. Perhaps you can compare your HD300 to one in a shop and see whether there is the same delay between changes. Some people seem to notice delays like that more than other people so it may just be how you percieve the unit.

I strongly suspect you have hit the nail on the head here. A small delay is normal when running the HD editor due to the need to synchronize the memory buffers in the HD device and the computer running Edit.

My HD 300 has no preset dropouts when switching presets within a bank. It is instantaneous. My GR55 and VG-8 on the other hand have huge gaps when switching and are unusable as stand alone units. Even the switching on my 18 year old Flextone with original floorboard is seamless.
