Slow network W7 'Easy Transfer' between PCs ?

Using Easy Transfer from a Win7 desktop to a W7 laptop [over a network] a 17.5 GB data partition transfer took over 5hrs. It all went smoothly but ... is this a reasonable time ?

The "Easy Transfer" is nice and easy but it is definately SLOW. That is IMHO completely normal :)

In fact when I use it I use iot to transfer the user account and all setings but NOT my main user files. Those I transfer by hand so then it only takes a few minutes for the easy transfer portion then maybe a half hour or something for the files.
