Working great! – USB 2.0 + USB 3.0 Express Card Adapter for Laptop Reviews

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

Pros:
This product is very easy to use, as long as you have an PCI-E slot in your computer or laptop of course ;) You don't lose any USB-ports, so it is only the PCI-E slot you are using. IT doesn't feel that fragile or easy to break. Though, you should always be careful with your stuff.
Cons:
Although it needs another USB port for extra power, this product gives you 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 slot, so you don't loose any. Hopefully the cable is long enough for you that it can reach a, USB slot ;) This product comes with an small installation CD, which I can't put into my laptop (it has a slider). Just search the type, listed on the paperwork with it, on the internet and download a driver there.
Other:
The connector for extra power looks a bit fragile when plugged in, although without the extra power you can still use both USB-slots (as 2.0). This could have been done a bit better.
Bottomline:
It really works well and it definitely is a recommendation to people who'd like to have an (extra) USB 3.0-slot in their computer when they have an PCI-E slot. It really is worth your money.
