It is flush with the laptop so it looks nice. I connected a SATA laptop drive and I managed to transfer a large file at 60mb/s (according to vista's speed meter) Did not need drivers for Vista 32 or Win7 64bit.
Driver disk is unreadable. A bit thick so it is hard to insert and pull out without a esata cable connected to it.
When you insert the card the laptop will not auto install, you have to go to the device manager Action>Scan for Hardware Changes Have only tested it with one drive, but I don't foresee any issues with other drives or optical drives.
Nice card to have, much better than going through USB2.0.
