Media Upload slow

Uploading files in the MediaLibrary have become slow as of late and I'm having issues troubleshooting it.

When I'm uploading several files at once, I've noticed that the files will get uploaded to the folder I've designated, but it won't register in the MediaLibrary until the thumbnail finishes loading.

2 Questions:
Is there another way other than going through the MediaLibrary page to upload files?

Is there a module I can enable to help speed things up?
