Started mine last night at about 8pm. Took around 3 hours to download, then kept getting error 3200. Gave up in the end and finished it off when I got to school today ... took about half an hour to finish it off.
I did my iPad last night and it took about 30 - 45 minutes. Guess I was lucky?
will do my iPad when i get home, hopefully some of the 200 features are noticeable :p
same as all of the above. ^^
downloaded the update in my Dell for the Mrs 3Gs in about 20minutes but had the 3200 error code until about 11pm. By the time the MBP had downloaded the lion o/s update (800mb) had come down and installed I think the world and his iDog were downloading. First iOS download failed about halfwaythrough, an hour i. I restarted the download and the second half was coming down at 1.25mbps, finished at some stage early this morning.

Seems to apply mostly to the phones rather than the iPad extra features.
Finally found the camera button from the lock screen when i accidentally double clicked the lock button. :) Best thing about apple is the "Here's the update but you'll have to google it to find out all the features" approach :) (Or maybe I'm just simple?)
Took me about 3 hours or so :
Ensured firewall was disabled, ran the software updater to ensure iTunes was up to date as possible, then backed up my iphone with contacts etc, used the restore button in itunes to restore my iphone to factory defaults and then it allowed me to update to iOS 5 as it had already spent about 3 hours downloading the iOS 5 file ( which was only 775mb give or take a bit ) on a 50mbps connection, me thinks the VM router is flakey after all or i need to do a power cycle on it.
I managed to brick my phone (Yeah! Go me!) and ended up calling Applecare for an hour. Had the hold down the power button + home button together for 10 seconds and then release the power button while still holding the home button and then connect the phone to the computer while iTunes is running.
It took some time to work out the proper process as the guy on the phone was telling me to release the power button when the apple logo came up.
the 3200 error is itunes timing out when its trying to verify the IPSW, its nothing to do with a corrupt file, the only reason it would brick it would be losing connection to the device, but it sounds like @HodgeHi's phone was in full DFU mode rather than restore mode
the 3200 errors were freuqent last night because the world and there iwife were trying to update withing 10 mins of the release and even apples data center and server clusters could not keep up with the demand
One thing I've just noticed. Even though it did tell me it would leave my data alone, including contacts I've just realised. all my contacts have vanished !!! good job I have a backup.
