Simple adding of USB 2.0 ports to old PC – 2-Port USB 2.0 PCMCIA Expansion Card for Laptops Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It installs easily and functions well. No need for drivers under windows 7. Improves very much the ability to use old laptops.
Cons:
Hard to slide it in and out.
The PCMCIA port does not provide enough power for certain portable USB HDD.
Other:
I have a rather old (5 yr) laptop where the 2 ports are not functioning due to a motheboard fault.
This device added instantly the missing ports, and the PC (serving as media center) is in full functionality again.
Bottomline:
Good purchase.
