I regularly dump a db that is compressed at over 2Gb.  Last time I did
a restore on the production box it took about 3 hours.  Restoring it
into a development box with a SATA RAID0 config takes like 7 hours or

The biggest improvement in speed to restore time I have discovered is
to increase the checkpoint segments.  I bump mine to about 50.  And
moving the pg_xlog to a separate physical disk helps a lot there, too.
