That read speed is quite poor. I would expect to see better speeds than that
from a single S-ATA disk! For several years people have been reporting
better speeds than that from 3ware controllers (although almost no-one tested
with as few as three disks).
But hdparm is a poor benchmark tool. I suggest using Bonnie++.
