  • Useful, but

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    This is a great device for laptops not having USB 3.o port to get faster speed in data transmission from/to storage devices.
    This is a light and compact device at an affordable price.
    The build seems OK.

    Cons:

    - Cannot be firmly fitted in its slot, but this is a constarint of this connector type. I have finally used some silicone 2-compound, synthetic resin-based glue to avoid any movements that caused unwanted interruptions during its operation.

    - The CD supplied with the device was unusable, so I have downloaded the Frisco Logic driver from the internet. It seems OK, but....

    - The card sometimes remains in the deactivated state after my computer is waken up from the hibernated state. I don't know the reason. If you have any idea, please visit this forum: http://club.dx.com/forums/Forums.dx/threadid.1192061

    - The transfer speeds I experienced are recorded in this forum: http://club.dx.com/forums/forums.dx/threadid.779771
    There is some improvement compared to USB 2.0 ports, albeit not exceptionally significant.

    OtherThoughts:

    You will need an USB 3.0 hub if you want to use more than one USB 3.0 pendrives or other USB-based devices with this. I have bought SKU: 55229 for this purpose.

    Bottomline:

    It doesn't brought significant increase in the performance of my system, so I am a bit deceived.
