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

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

Pros:
Easy to set up and install, no configuration necessary. Achieved maximum speeds with my Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 (~250 MB/s read/150 MB/s write)
Cons:
I like to have my (windowed) case clean and it adds more cabling. Especially the molex connector has a rather unlucky orientation
Other:
I didn't even try the driver CD based on previous feedbacks. The drivers can be easily found by searching "Via VL800". The last one is only a couple of months old, so no use for the CD anyway.
Bottomline:
Cheap, fast USB 3.0 controller with ports for rear and front panel
