That looks reasonable to me - very fast from the cache and a lot slower
when it has to be buffered (on the hard drive, presumably). But, what do I

That is not even close to reasonable. I have never seen buffered reads THAT bad.

 Timing cached reads:   1316 MB in  2.09 seconds = 629.02 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  158 MB in  3.02 seconds =  52.25 MB/sec

And I get this...

 Timing buffer-cache reads:   1024 MB in  2.00 seconds = 511.06 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  102 MB in  3.02 seconds =  33.82 MB/sec

1.85 MB/sec looks *very* slow to me.
