Added second edit that describes my experience after installation, since it may implicate the SSD as a contributor to the slow installation.

You're not alone. I'm having the same problem. I also found this forum discussion about the problem. Unfortunately there's no resolution. ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2104709

comment Ubuntu 12.10 taking a very long time to install from Live DVD on a very fast desktop
Good point. However, (and I'll edit question to mention this) there seems to be nothing happening while it's stalled - the DVD isn't even spinning. When burning the ISO (in Windows 7) I did check something like "verify the burn" or "check for errors" and that was successful. Is there something else you have in mind as a way to "check the DVD for errors"?
