How long must you wait before making a counteroffer during salary negotiations?

Let's say you've been offered the job. Then, during the same conversation, you are told the salary. Is there any reason to not begin negotiations right then? Most information I've read states to take a couple of days and then respond with a counteroffer. But, if you've already done all of your research, know the market, know their range from the HR website, know how much the last person made, know your number, etc., is there any harm in immediately negotiating?
