After trying many distros, for me those listed below stay in computers in multi boot environment
Sabayon, more bleeding edge feeling
PCLinuxOS stable, good tools
Pardus corp2, stable, a little slow, older KDE3.5 style, suitable for people who like 3.5 especially to show would be windows convert
Pardus 2011, fast, pretty, easy to configure using kaptan
Salix, fast on old computer
Mepis, fast. used it for my Master Boot loader since it used grub legacy

I'm not sure how you define "KDE distro" since versions like Mint KDE are not really distros, are they? I consider Mint to be a GNOME distro first.
I also like PCLOS, but right now the nicest one I'm running is Fedora 14 KDE. But, again, I think of Fedora as a GNOME distro first.
As for speed, I don't know, I don't really notice much difference.

Mandriva/Mageia may be an option for you to follow-up on. Though, PCLinuxOS is a worthy contender.

I'm not a fan of direct Debian based distros. Wine just will not work for me in them. Same with Debian itself.
