Well by my rough calculations, assuming that to be constant, you could copy a CD image (700MB) in about 3.5 seconds. A regular DVD image (4.7GB) would take 23.5 seconds, and a standard Blu-ray sized image (25GB) could be copied in a bit over 2 minutes.

Given the speeds my 1TB hard drives can manage, that seems pretty damn quick to me.
