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


    2 ready-to-use USB3.0 Ports on the backpanel
    2 USB3.0 internal Ports via 20Pin Header, which are usable with a Front-USB-Adapter
    reliable Via VL800 Chipset
    good build-quality
    Turbo-Mode via driver utility


    none so far


    I already had some USB3.0 PCIe/Expresscard Controllers, but they have the old NEC/Renesas Host-Chip which isn't very reliable. These cards have often problems with 2.5" USB3.0 harddrives, i/o errors after a few minutes or won't work at all.

    This card here has the Via VL800 4Port Host-Controller and is working perfectly.

    I could get a read-speed of 100MB/s with a SanDisk USB3.0 Stick, and after enabling the Turbo-Mode in the driver of the controller i got 125MB/s in real file-transfer and 185MB/s in CrystalDiskMark.

    To activate Turbo-Mode you may have to download the newest drivers from the Via website, which has a very slow downloadspeed.


    a very nice fast usb3.0 pcie controller card with the ability to connect front usb-ports.
