comment Verifying USB connection speed (USB 3 or USB 2?)
SOLVED -- My root problem here was driver related; I'd tried to manually install Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Drivers for Windows 7 on Server 2008 R2 (since no server drivers are available). In doings so I appear to have missed one or more devices. By following these instructions I've been able to coerce the driver installer to run correctly, fixing the issue. The SanDisk is getting 170 MB/s reads, 130 MB/s writes and the Toshiba is getting around 110 MB/s.
