Why don't you just try it and watch it?

I have, hence why I'd like a verbose mode.

pv -pterab  /dev/urandom -s 64000k | dd of=file.img bs=64k count=1000
 
pv:
p = progress bar
t = timer
e = eta
r = rate
a = average rate
b = bytes
s = size
That example is a bit OTT but -s is the important factor for a progress bar as it allows pv to calculate the percentage. I assume there's a version of pv for distros other than Debian.

I'll try it on Ubuntu tonight with an .iso to a USB key and post back
