Quality is superb! The actual PCIe x1 connector came with a bracket that can be screwed in for a sturdy and unmovable connection. The USB 3.0 ports work fast and seem to be reliable.
I am not very happy that the device needs 3 separate connections to be made to work. and the old style molex connector needed in the back of the device caused me to use a extension cable as the one on my power supply was on the same cable as the sata power cable but this isn't really a con. The only major problem I have notices so far is that my nano receiver that came with a logitech m505 mouse is not working correctly when plugged into the usb port and makes my mouse pointer pause every few seconds.
I don't like that the access light is the opposite of a normal light. When the memory cards are accessed the light turns off instead of the normal operation like a hard drive light. The red power light is really unnecessary and is too bright but not blindingly bright. Also they could have put the CF card reader a little deeper as it sticks out a lot in front and my case door will not close when a card is inserted. quarter inch deeper would be perfect.
This adapter is good when used strictly for usb 3.0 devices but there may be some incompatibility with the mouse i have.
