hi there,

i have 2 hard drives running. the first one is SATA300 and the other one
UDMA100. here are the dmesg entries:

ad0: 238474MB <SAMSUNG SP2504C VT100-50> at ata0-master SATA300
ad1: 157066MB <Hitachi HDS722516VLAT80 V34OA63A> at ata4-master UDMA100

i've tried to test the drives' performances using the following commands:

dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/null bs=1m count=300
dd if=/dev/ad1 of=/dev/null bs=1m count=300

the results are:
ad0 = 314572800 bytes transferred in 4.325645 secs (72722751 bytes/sec)
ad1 = 314572800 bytes transferred in 5.166126 secs (60891430 bytes/sec)

the results for ad0 are a bit disappointing though. is this normal or is bs=1m
