Does TC slow the computer down

I was keen on buying the Time Capsule until I read that it slowed the computer down while it is running. Is this True?

Is there a way round this, like only turning on the time capsule only when I want it to perform a back up?

    Time Capsule is hardware, so as long as you pay attention to the above listed System Requirements, then no.

    Time Machine backups might be noticeable while in progress if system resources are limited. Schedule your backups accordingly, or do them manually instead of using an automatic schedule.
