The Thecus tarball I downloaded has hdparm 6.1, current is 7.7. I 
compiled 6.1 (on my desktop), and I get a factor two speed difference 
for hdparm -T (Timing cached reads), but no difference for hdparm -t 
(Timing buffered disk reads). Therefore I don't think it is only a 
hdparm problem. The factor 9 for cached reads is probably just a 
factor 4.5, but the factor 2.5 for buffered disk reads seems to be
