So we are all talking apples to apples...

1) What size file(s)?  (One BIG 100MB file, or 100 1MB files?)
2) How to you calculate the xxMB/sec?
3) Do you get the same results both directions?
   3a) copy \\server\share\bigfile c:\
   3b) copy c:\bigfile \\server\share

I can then check my xfer rates to see if I am or am not having
similar results.
