  • Decent bit of kit

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Does what it's supposed to
    - Fits flush with the side of your laptop
    - Cheap

    Cons:

    - Not the fastest USB3.0 solution
    - Nor the most power efficient
    - Sub-par build quality
    - Thickness makes it a tight squeeze

    OtherThoughts:

    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.

    Bottomline:

    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.
