Yeap. The transfer speed is good. Anyway, this depends on what kind of ATA you have, cable, disk and controller.
ATA 33/66/100/133 have the speed in MB/s specified
SATA can do up to 150MB/s
SCSI system go even higher.
But since you transferred on the same hdd only from one partition to another the transfer rate decreases drastically, and I think you can imagine why.
Anyway, 2700MB in 380seconds means  7.1 MB/s (reading and writing  on the same hdd) so it's ok.

maybe you are using 40 conductor cable .... change it with 80 conductor cable or else ....
your hard drive does not support more than ATA-33
