The bs=1M would have helped (a lot) and obviously copying between SSD's is going to be much faster than between HDD's (specially if they're both on SATA).

'dd' is a terrific utility .. right up until the first time you make a syntax mistake .. from that point on you'll cack your pants every time you use it.
