What user say about speed reading

I am not sure that I can think much faster than I can sub vocalize.  To be honest, I often find myself rereading certain things to try and fully understand them.  

Have any tests been able to show that comprehension does not fall off after a certain speed of reading has been achieved?  I am not talking about repeating something verbatim, but grasping the "deeper" meaning.

I've been working with a variety of speed reading techniques for a while too and sub vocalizing was one of my major problems. I seemed to get over it by just pushing a bit faster than I could form the words in my head.

This did not detract too much from my comprehension and, over a period, got me out of the habit of sub vocalizing everything. Over time I've found that I can read extremely quickly when reading "for enjoyment". Especially fantasy novels, which I easily finish in one sitting.

I'm also a network engineer and I find that when reading white papers or other such materiel that are work related my speed is less than a third of my "fun-reading" speed. I perform best where the text enables me to build up clear images, or where the plot means that the flow of language is easy to follow (or even predict). This is sadly rarely the case with work related material.
