HD Benchmarking

So, whats an good and easy to use HD benchmarking tools for linux?
I've done a few tests with bonnie++ but HP Sata raid1 beats SAS raid 1. I find that hard to believe. And there are also numbers missing. (see attached file)
I need a simple tool to benchmark an old DL380G2 that I want to setup a NSF storage for ESXi4. (I've looked into IOZone but that seems to be complicated)
