  • Good upgrade

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

    Pros:

    Makes it possible to get increased USB speeds without USB 3.0 support on the mainboard.

    I had problems copying from USB disks to USB sticks (machine wouold freeze and it'd take forever), but now transfer speeds are around 2 - 10 Mb/s (which is a huge improvement) and it doesn't freeze any more.

    Cons:

    Not always responding (needs a pc restart) when I put in a USB stick.

    A bit tight to fit it in my 2.5" slot.

    Had to put my Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo in upside down.

    OtherThoughts:

    Cable to PCI port just long enough. (Has to go in a fairly straght line from box to port.)

    Bottomline:

    I would recommend this to upgrade your pc. And especially if you have loads of USB drives and sticks.
