I agree with Chris...

string.IsNullOrEmpty:   312 ms
Length:                 140 ms  [fastest]

This is not a fair comparison.

Need to compare:
(string != null && string.Length !=0)
Even if the first construct is faster, there is a readability factor:

if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(someString)) {
//do something with someString
if (someString != null && someString.Length != 0) {
//do something with someString
The second construct becomes increasingly ugly if there is more than one string to deal with.
