Default Is my external hard drive slow, average, or fast?

I just got a cavalry 250gb external hard drive and transfered a little over 30 gigabytes of music/pictures/video/programs in a folder to another computer.

It took almost 45 minutes. Is that normal? What are you guys getting usually as far as transfer rates of large amounts of data?

That's averaging 8.33MB/sec ... that's pretty fast.
