Cvs vs gzip | zip

in neo4j-admin import
We can imprt csv file or compressed csv like gzip or zip
Is there any performance advantage for compressed files over csv ?

The advantage of using compressed files is that you don't need to unpack them, which saves space on your machine! The import tool does have to uncompress the file, but I'm not sure whether that would mean there's necessarily a performance reduction or improvement.
