copying files with ntfs-3g appears to be limited to 2.5MB/s.
copying files from the same device under Linux (which also uses ntfs-3g)
yields > 20MB/s.

the drive has power savings mode disabled.

install ntfs-3g from pkgsrc.
attach NTFS drive to USB.
ntfs-3g /dev/sd1e /disk/media -o ro,uid=100,gid=100,umask=222
do some rsyncing or dding to get speed statistics
my current workaround is to perform NTFS copies from a Linux machine to my
NetBSD file server over the LAN, which puts a 100mbit limit on the copy
(~9MB/s).  this is slower than I observe natively under Linux, but faster than
accessing the drive when directly connected under NetBSD.
