    RDP works fine if you know how to setup it correctly.
    It took me more than an hour the first time: firewall - network problems... (XP VM on Win8 PRO)

    For beginners it will be messy for sure.
    Then there is also the network overhead or a bit of a slowdown- delay between pointer movement on screen and clicks (depends on machine I guess).

    If you use this sound - USB - graphics configuration in VM's often then you're better with VMware Player but if you need to run things quickly and no sound or USB is needed then Hyper-V is alright.

    If you need the performance of using a type-1 hypervisor, none of the others will do. There are drawbacks for doing so (like you've found), but the RDP issues you're seeing would be hardware-specific most likely.

    with Hyper-V you have sound, you just have to enable audio over RDP , Anyway Hyper-V is design to work with RDP not directly in the Management Tools, it's suck too much

    As I said, I prefer to skip the RDP in VM's because I get less performance (visually) that way.
    I may still need some tweaks here, I'm a novice.
    If you connect remotely then RDP is the only way I guess.
