Works seemlessly under GNU/Linux – Express to USB 3.0 COMB & eSATA 54MM Expansion Card Adapter for Notebook (Max 5.0 Gpbs) Reviews

Pros:
I plugged it into my laptop then plugged my new USB3 external drive and there it was. Unplugging and replugging also seemed to work just fine. The drive was happy to pull all its power from the single USB3 connector even without using the extra power cable that comes with the card.
Cons:
None so far, but I only just opened and tried it.
Other:
I have not yet tried to use the eSata part.
Bottomline:
I like the fact that it does not stick out. Assuming the eSata part works as well, it's a great way to update a laptop's ports.
