Glad to see this wasn't just me. So slow it seems like its failing. Kinda BS if you ask me.

This still drives me crazy. One of the few things the dealer says is "normal" or within spec/tolerance. Grrr. Love the truck, but hate some of the oddities with it.

I'm going to bring it back to the dealer again. My right rear barely moves if you are using any other window at the same time. Seems like it's not getting enough power. Are the new Armadas the same? I had a Tahoe and a GMC Envoy, and the windows flew up and down.

That's kind of what I was wondering is if its an electrical issue. I was thinking maybe weak relays or something not giving good power to the electric motors. Any thoughts from anyone else?

They go down just fine. Front windows are fine.

I just purchased a certified 2010 QX56 from the dealer and the first thing I noticed was that both rear windows are MUCH slower coming up. On top of that, the driver side rear window was even slower than the other rear window. There is so much difference, that I immediately assume there is a mechanical issue or problem and that it is close to failure. Thus I did not play with it any more, to avoid inflicting more damage.

Service Rep at dealership gave the typical non-committal statement out maybe the window seal is "gummed up" and just needs to be cleaned up.

Will follow-up with results once I get it back.

The dealer looked at mine again. They said they cleaned out the tracks and lubed everything. They are a little better, but still subpar in my opinion. Still nowhere near the front.

Picked up vehicle from dealer yesterday evening and Service Rep said they "cleaned/lubed" the tracks, but also ordered a new "regulator" for the window.
Once they get the part in, they will call me to replace it.

So more to follow in the days to come.
