Technically, the DataBinder.Evall() method uses reflection when evaluating the data item to find a property with a certain name. You do pay a performance penalty when you use reflection.
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Title") %>
As an alternative, you can improve the performance of your DataBinding expressions by casting the data items to a particular type like this:
<%# CType(Container.DataItem, System.Data.DataRowView)("Title")%>
