Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
- Does what it's supposed to - Fits flush with the side of your laptop - Cheap
- Not the fastest USB3.0 solution - Nor the most power efficient - Sub-par build quality - Thickness makes it a tight squeeze
This card uses a Renesas (NEC) chipset which works OK but is neither as fast or as power efficient as the Fresco Logic ones. Build quality isn't good - on my unit, one port if very tight, the other is very loose.
If you need two USB3.0 ports on your laptop, then this is a good solution. However, if you only need a single port, I think sku.48005 is a better card.
