 Does using the raw device work better than the block device (i.e.
 rsd1e rather than sd1e in your case)?
 Also, can you confirm that disk access itself is faster when not
 passing through ntfs-3g?  I.e. using dd if=/dev/rsd1e of=/dev/null
 bs=512 and checking if "systat vmstat" shows a decent speed.
