So it can be generally agreed that UpdatePanels are evil. Plenty of people have blogged about this, there's a good post here which goes over it in more details. To give a brief background the reason they are not a great idea is because of what they are, just a wrapper for the standard PostBack request to force it via XHttp rather than normal. This results in more data being submitted and returned than is really needed, so on big pages, or big requests this can negate the point of using AJAX as you're still submitting a lot of data.
