Thanks for the link....
My main drive, which isn't a speed demon, is an ST3100...120 MB/sec
A USB2 WD drive, attached to a USB 2 port, benches at 30-35 MB/sec
A new Matsunichi 1 TB drive, benches at 100 MB/sec, which is confirmed by a Windows drag& drop of a very large file.
All these are at the longer size file reads/writes
