For speed comparisons have a look here:

rsync really is worth knowing. Here are two common uses.
To only get differences between file on the remote and
local server. For e.g. if you're having problems downloading,
you can run this several times to get the file.
rsync -P rsync://rsync.server.com/path/to/file file
This would copy file1 to file2 at around 1 MByte/s
Think of it as nice for I/O.
rsync --bwlimit=1000 file1 file2
