    That's a simple reason why I consider Windows reset being an utterly useless feature. Two methods, same result, huge difference in time required.
    I agree. I can't see myself ever using the built in reset feature.

    Depending on hardware, that can take a few hours. Clean installing until OOBE, wiping the hard disk takes 10 to 15 minutes. Quite a difference.

    Well I totally disagree with you. Your method does not securely wipe data from drive for resale. So what if it takes 4 hours - just let it run overnight. Time is irrelevant - data security is not!
