I'm running nightly TM backups - source and destination are 1TB sata drives and the TM store is currently around 650GB.

The FIRST copy will take a VERY LONG time. Subsequent smart backups completed in about 4-5 hours under Leopard, and now run 6-7 hours under Snow Leopard.

As Dave said, TM is a complex structure and I'll add that while a standard Mac OS drive may contain 100,000 plus files, a well established TM drive will be referencing many million files. Super Duper will copy it - and I believe it is the only safe TM copy mechanism.
