I rsync 2.6M files daily. No problem.
It takes 15 minutes, if there's only a few changes.
For fast transfer of files between two machines
I usually use ttcp:
tar cf - .|ttcp -l5120 -t to_machine
ttcp -l5120 -r | tar xf -
I get ~100Mbytes/sec on a gigabit connection.
Note this is unsecure, no way of restarting, etc.
