Hi Roy,
My experience is that depending on the Version of RTC, Browser, any Links (OSLC)
If you start going above 1000 item potentially in older version V3/V4 you may see the plan save becoming slower.

Start to think about how you are using plans;  for a Team, Sprint, Release.. and who uses them.
Different people want to see different information:
Release plan for the Product Owner..

Sometimes I setup a Plan view that only displays "My Stuff" this helps speed things up from Version 4.0.7

The restriction to 2048 items was removed in v3.0 onwards and you can have several thousands of items on the same plan.

However, the recommendation would be to keep it to few hundreds by means of creating plans for lower level iterations or limiting it to specific Team Areas.  Larger plans are not very helpful when it comes to loading them faster...

The below forum post has a good discussion you may find interesting :

 Also see for some hints about how to potentially deal with large plans.
