  • Not exceptional, but useful to have a 3.0 port

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - The product is very simple to use, just insert it, install the driver that comes in the package and use it;
    - 2 more USB ports :)

    Cons:

    - The 3.0 transfer speed is not great; have a improvement (Increased 10MB/s here in some situations) compaired to a regular 2.0 port, but very inferior speeds compaired to a better quality 3.0 USB.
    - The ports look like a bit tight on the card, not much space left there.

    OtherThoughts:

    - In case you want to use this with external disk drives, consider reserve another USB port for power transfer. There is a 5V cable to connect the card on other USB on cases like this. When I tried to use this product with a Samsung HDD, it started to make some noises, warning about power insufficiency coming from the 3.0 ports.

    Bottomline:

    A great product if you looking for extra USB ports and use it with USB gadgets that don't require too much power; If you are looking a product focusing on transfer speed, try another option.
