I switched from Round Up to Spectracide this year and got much faster results 
-- the target would be dead within a day or two at most.  (This is the Grass 
& Weed Killer formula with diquat dibromide and fluazfop-p-butyl -- they also 
make a lawn weed formula that acts just like Round Up.)  Definitely recommend 
being careful to protect any desirable plants around the target, though - I 
used it on some thistles that had come up in the lawn and it took some of the 
grass out too.
