That means I essentially got what I wanted- as 
high read output as possible on USB 2.0. Thanks.

Indeed 35MB/s-40MB/s is common reported maximum

Apart from bs= that's exactly what I did (Well, there
was one /dev/random/ run prior.) 

What I previously meant is that I had such pendrive, that 
without former formatting in Windows, didn't even show 
up as device in FreeBSD- was completely useless.

That does not mean I didn't newfs_msdosfsed it after
that in FreeBSD (worked perfectly fine since) :)
