    These are not easy to find anymore

    Pros:
    Works as it should. Quality build is fine. I am using it already for a while and everything is perfect. Great for adding USB2 to older laptops with only usb 1.1. The card also doesn't stick out of the laptop wich is great.
    Cons:
    The usb connectors are very tight to get in and a little bit under an angle.

    Very useful for old laptops

    posted by figueiredops on 02/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is very easy to use, just plug and play. I use it on my very old laptop and I get the extras USB ports for my external HD and/or blu-ray. I really liked this product and it is very cheap.
    Cons:
    It is kind of fragile. You should be careful when you use it and when you connect cables to it. But I believe it is durable.

    Pros:
    I use it my old laptop running under Debial Linux to hook USB harddrive. So far so good. No failures detected. Installation was plug-and-play.
    Cons:
    USB socket are a bit tight due to thin profile of that card. So be careful when inserting cables.
