The first part of connecting, CC sending metadata to calibre, is always going to take about the same time. The second part, after calibre checks the metadata, will be long only the first time, after which it will only send metadata updates of changes you have made.
The first time I connected it took calibre 6 - 8 minutes to send the metadata to my nexus the second time 1 second.
Specifically I have 2020 books on my device. When I last connected to calibre, it took 1 minute and 18 seconds for CC to send the metadata to calibre. Around 30 seconds for calibre to compare the metadata sent from CC to its database and 1 second to send back a metadata update declaring no changes.
As long as you let the connection run its course most everything subsequently is cached for quicker connection.

- Before the change, calibre took 31 seconds match the 1001 books and determine that it didn't need to send the metadata back.
- After the change, calibre took around 1.5 seconds to do the same thing.
