You may want to experiment with these options:

# Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
# See the chapter 'Samba performance issues' in the Samba HOWTO Collection
# and the manual pages for details.
# You may want to add the following on a Linux system:
;   socket options = SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

You may also want to set these options explicitly (depending how you 
start Samba, but it won't hurt):

log level = 0
syslog = 0

Otherwise, your Samba may be logging too much, causing unnecessary writes.

Note that Samba will be always slower than a lower-level NFS (which, in 
turn will be slower than iSCSI etc.).
