RapidReader?

Is the program RapidReader any good?
you load a text file into it, and it flashes the file's words onscreen at 500ish WPM.
So far, it seems good and it's helped me read a lot faster. But I'm asking you lads, is it any good? Are there any side effects to reading classical literature at 650WPM? I can remember the books I've read using this, so I don't think there are any downsides like that.

An Anon on /lit/ said it hurts reading comprehension, but he didn't add any sources for it. I'd say go for it for school assignments and the like, but be a bit more cautious with other things. It's not bad to want to savor a book.

Did find this post though while I was looking for sources, give it a read. Similar idea to Rapidreader.
