Let's just say that it is PAINFULLY SLOW!!!!!
My biggest complaint with the device.
Well... if I (and apparently several others) can do a total sync - including backup - in just a few minutes and yours takes 30 hours, and considering we are running (for all intents and purposes) identical iPads, then the problem sounds like it might possibly be something on your end and may not be something Apple can fix.The backup performance is completely unacceptable and I hope Apple can come up with a fix.
I just did the 3.2.1 upgrade.
The required backup took over 30 HOURS (!) but the update went smoothly.
My iPad is a 64 gByte Wifi model with around 12 gBytes free. The PC used with iTunes is an older dual-core Pentium with 4 gBytes RAM and around 175 gBytes free disc space on the system/iTunes drive.
The backup performance is completely unacceptable and I hope Apple can come up with a fix. I could copy the entire contents of a 1.5TB drive via USB in a few hours, so 52 gBytes should be less than an hour even allowing for data compression.
