Huh, I have the same disk:
# dmesg | grep ad4
ad4: 1430799MB <Seagate ST31500341AS CC1H> at ata2-master SATA300
Sequential read on a disk this size should be around 120MB/sec at the
# dd if=/dev/ad4 of=/dev/null bs=128k count=5000
655360000 bytes transferred in 5.171389 secs (126728039 bytes/sec)

Stripe will give you higher throughput.
Mirror will give you more random seeks per second.
