USB 3.0 PCI-E Express Card – Super Speed 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI-E Express Card (5Gbps) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap, two times cheaper than items in my country. Works just fine, has extension slot for "Mainboard 20-pin/19-pin to Dual-Port USB 3.0 Adapter Cable (sku 127328) or something similar to use USB on front panel, because connecting flash drive from behind would be impossible for me.
Cons:
Has no screw with it to fix it on PC case, had difficult time finding one that fits in my screw jar. Driver disk has no autorun and no setup, just bunch of folders with random names. My windows 7 ultimate didn't find drivers itself, so I had to point unknown devices from device manager to CD drive and everything works.
Other:
It's a good thought to buy adapter cable and one usb extension. I'm using extension for one port and cable is going under my monitor, so I can easily plug in flash drive or hdd.
Bottomline:
Cheap. Works. Buy it to upgrade your PC to superspeed usb 3.0!
