My understanding is that InnoDB and BDB tables are slower than MyISAM 
tables for every operation, including reads, regardless of whether the 
current connection is in a transaction or not. I haven't seen them to be 
noticeably slower, but I normally use PostgreSQL on larger-scale sites and 
so don't have data myself to say one way or the other.
