  • Good card

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Good cheap one, with a connector for the control panel ( i used the 105979 fits perfectly). Gives 2+2 usb ports (rear and front). Small, fits in my cable crowded pc.

    Cons:

    Not 5 stars because the cd was unreadable (not recognized by 2 pcs) and there arent any reference to producer website to download drivers. But google "wlx-828u3 driver" and i found that a dx-er suggested this site: http://www.via-labs.com/en/support/downloads.jsp#hostdriver

    OtherThoughts:

    Keep in mind that the "5GBps" are not reality. With a usb3 usbmemory I transferred 50MBps only the 2x of a usb2. Maybe a better quality usbdrive arrives a 100MBps. see tomshardware articles.

    Bottomline:

    I recommend it. A leap ahead from usb2 but not as big as they write (not a dx foult of course).

    • The card installed
    • rear view of the 2 usb3 slots
    • Connected to this front panel
