I'm with Shane. The P2 workflow has greatly accelerated our post process. We do a lot of work with actors and typical scenes last 30 to 60 seconds. Our workflow with P2, and formerly tape, is to review each circled take and decide whether it should be transferred. With P2 once that decision is made the clip is transferred, and that happens before you can look at the log notes for the next take. We never wait during the P2 ingest process. With tape I'd be sitting around for the (wasted) time it took for the tape to cue and roll for capture. If you transfer long spanned clips, you can add them all to the queue and walk away to do something else. And as Shane says, once the first clip is in you can start your edit.
