Categories vs types vs aspects

I'm using Alfresco 4.1.6 and Solr 1.4.

I'm reading about the possibility of using classifications for the nodes, specified with a type d:category in an aspect on the content model.

A good time of searchs in our project are the most important, is the reason I try to design the best option possible for this. Our repository have over 2 millions of documents, spread over directories, where each user (we have 3000 users aprox) have an own root path.

For the queries (FTS_ALFRESCO), we actually use TYPE (we have 5 distinct types of nodes defined on our model) and custom properties (all of them that we use in the queries are indexed).

Imagine I change my model and use one of our indexed properties like a category. I delete a property and create an aspect with d:category with this property. My question is…

The search will be more efficient and quickly if I search by TYPE, properties and category? Or really is the same than using type and properties? In other words, Alfresco gives me a best performance if I search this value like a category instead of when I search this value like a normal indexed property?  Whats the benefits of use this like a category?
