You could always install it and rerun the performance test and report back to the forum.

Is there a difference if I use the connector disk to install the client of just map to a folder on the server?
Yes and No. You can map the WHS Shares the way you described, But, with the connector software installed you can access them via the LaunchPad or Dashboard. This is assuming you are using WHS2011. The difference between the LaunchPad and DashBoard, LP is for normal users, while DB is for the administrator.
You should also be able to see the WHS Shares via Windows Explorer under the Network section.
Also, you are not alone when it comes to slow response to items showing up or connecting to your server's shares. Here is a thread you might look at. I believe it may address your problem. Here is the link.
I don't mean to be confusing, right now I can still access my server through windows file explorer, it takes a while but I can get there. I had to enter my user name and password at first but then it does get there. My old system with the client installed was much faster viewing files.
This can be a network issue, and can be addressed in a couple of ways. Let me ask to clarity your situation. Are you setting up a WHS network with WHS2011 and at least one Win7 client system on your network?
I would recommend the installation of the connector software. Without the connector software you will not be able to perform client backups using the WHS backup system. Additionally, your WHS is not intended to be administered like a normal MS server. The DB software is the primary means to administer your WHS. It is from the DB that you will add users, and administer WHS Shares.
Once you have this all worked out I would suggest directing your specific WHS questions to the forum which best describes your situation. If you have a problem with the installation of the connector software, then address it to the WHS2011 - Installation forum.
It sounds like you have your Win7 install finished and now you need to get the whole WHS network working together.
I hope I addressed your questions sufficiently.
