    Works good but not with everything.

    posted by Sonicmixmaster on 08/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Quality is superb! The actual PCIe x1 connector came with a bracket that can be screwed in for a sturdy and unmovable connection. The USB 3.0 ports work fast and seem to be reliable.
    Cons:
    I am not very happy that the device needs 3 separate connections to be made to work. and the old style molex connector needed i...

    Seems great!

    posted by wkim75 on 04/11/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Simple to install. Someone said it doesn't fit well into the 3.5" bay.. like all devices (usually HD's) going into those bays, if you've tightly screwed in other devices, it should be loosened first prior to trying to install the newer device into the ...
    Cons:
    Yes, the LED is a bit bright.. Someone said the new mounting bracket makes it impossible to install correctly.. This is true.....

    Pros:
    - Good Price - Built quality is good - 4 USB 3.0 ports is really nice! - The speed tested is incredible with USB 3.0 external drive. Works as fast as an internal drive!

    Good upgrade

    posted by akkar on 10/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Makes it possible to get increased USB speeds without USB 3.0 support on the mainboard. I had problems copying from USB disks to USB sticks (machine wouold freeze and it'd take forever), but now transfer speeds are around 2 - 10 Mb/s (which is a huge improv...
    Cons:
    Not always responding (needs a pc restart) when I put in a USB stick. A bit tight to fit it in my 2.5" slot. Had to put my...
