Performance of JTextArea

When I have over 200KB of text in the JTextArea it becomes very slow to scroll. It is also very slow to initialize it with the text. Is there some sort of setting I need to set to make it go faster? Am I even using the right component or is there one more suitable for loading all that text. Thanks in advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
