Fresco Logic Fl1000 – 34/54MM Express to USB 3.0 Card for Notebook Reviews

posted by h34th on 01/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Works fine - Doesn't protrude from side of laptop
Cons:
- Wiggles around a bit in a 54mm slot (you can use a stabilizer to prevent this) - Hassle to find up to date drivers - Can be a tight squeeze if there's an adjacent slot occupied - No Mac or Linux support yet
Other:
As long as you've got the recent WHQL drivers, this should work fine on 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. I get a 90MB/s read speed from my Samsung S2 USB3.0 HD. I couldn't find any Mac or Linux drivers yet. The chip is a Fresco Logic FL1000 FWIW.
Bottomline:
If you're running Windows and need a USB3.0 card, this one will work well.
