ext3 with data=ordered is fast enough in my experience (which includes several multi-user servers).
What you write about these figures  reminds me of my experiences with copying stuff to flash devices. However, no writing to an ext3 file system was involved there, and I suspect that the problem is sitting at a lower level than the msdos or vfat file system.
