Try the command line (It's really easy to install from the tigris download page) to be sure that the problem comes from eclipse/subversive.
Eclipse may want to refresh its workspace during the checkout and this may slowdown the all checkout process...
If its the case, look if you can avoid the eclipse refresh or try subclipse.

Subversion workspace have 4 or 5 more files than CVS workspace, so the transfer/creation of these files on the disk can take more time.
Are you doing your checkout on a local drive of your client or through NFS or samba on a network drive ?
My experience is that if you are doing it on a local drive, the bottleneck is probably the server and it should not be much slower than with CVS. But if you are doing your checkout on a network drive, the bottleneck is probably the network tranfer and can be many times (about 4 times slower in my case) than CVS.
