I would like to know what is the fastest way to import clips to media 100. I have a 3min 52 sec clip shot from a Canon 60D and took me 6mins 20sec to import to bin. Is that normal or it could be faster? Anyone here can import faster or less than realtime?
I have no problem with my setup, everything works perfect. Only if I could make importing files faster.

Xserve 2008 - 3.0/8 core

Kona 3
OS 10.5.8

Since the 60D records H.264, I guess the import speed is pretty normal. If you have clips in a natively supported codec like ProRes they would import much quicker, of course, but H.264 clips need to be converted to whatever codec you have set as your render codec.
