When it works, it really makes a difference, when comparing to USB 2.0 ports. An external HDD which would only reach ~30MB/s reading on USB 2.0 ports, reached more than 100MB/s when using this card (tested with HDTune 2.55). That was even without using the card molex connector for extra power. Didn't work in my home computer, with an ECS A780GM-A Ultra.... Read more
Small and usefull with 4 USB 3.0 Ports, tested speeds were decent. The black PCB actually matches my DFI mainboard so I consider that a plus also (not only it works well but it also looks good while doing it lol). The power molex bugs me, although I understand the necessity of auxiliary power, yet I founded it fragil. It seems like it can break if you ... Read more
I unpacked the card, placed it inside my PC, connected the 4pin power, turned PC on (W8), attached a 3TB USB3.0 disk and it worked in one go! No need to use the included driver CD, no need to download anything, no need to search forums for answers.
Device Manager detected it as a VIA USB3 controller.
My HD file copy speed (indicated by Windows 8 file ... Read more
I bought these High Speed USB 3.0 4-Port PCI-E Express Card (5Gbps) and got it 2 days ago. easy to install. use to connect to devices that support usb 3 for high speed up to 5gbps !!! none. It took me 10 minutes to open the computer case and install the card and that's it. Windows 8.1 recognized the devices automatically ans all I had to do is connect ... Read more
bought this to add more usb ports to my pc and the fact that the card natively supports usb 3 standard was only a plus besides its price. installation was not anything special, cd with the drivers was inside the box and the process was prety much straitforward. here comes the cons part. as i said, it would be a great deal if it was working. unfortunately,...

Plug and play just needing a power supply to it. Uses the old style power plug and not the news ones like the ones used by the SATA ... Read more
My desktop has no USB 3.0 so I bought this to give it 4 extra USB 3.0 ports.
The speed was good, much faster than USB 2.0 when connecting external hard drives. The software disc was scratched but software can be downloaded from the website of the manufacturer (written on the included documentation). Best to check for lastest windows driver anyway.

It is one of the best products and comes with four ports. It is cheap and very useful for the new USB 3.0 ports that are comming. When installed was a little twisted with respect to the sheet of my cabinet but do not know why. I did not find it like a significant problem. Beyond that I have not found anything. Nothing to say. This is a very good product ... Read more
Provided drivers work. Immediately recognized by Windows 7.
Best price for 4 ports on Deals Extreme. I'm not sure under what situation you will get a transfer rate of 5GB/sec. Haven't found anything else negative to say about this item. I tired item 125118 and it just wouldn't install the driver properly and when I finally got it ll ... Read more
