Does what it says – USB3.0 Cardbus Express Card for Laptop Reviews

posted by chiseen2000 on 02/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Affordable way to boost add USB 3.0 Pretty fast
Cons:
It could be my laptop - seems to unseat easily from the slot It runs a bit hot
Other:
It does come with only one port but it was enough for my needs.
Bottomline:
The CD came with a bunch of drivers, make sure you use the right one! It is not the NEC one. It installs and works on Windows 7 without any issues. Got noticeably faster read speeds 20 MB/s, but write speeds to a Class10 SD card was about 1.5 MB/s. I transferred a 300 MB video from the card and it took over six minutes on USB 2.0, but with this card it took less than one minute! A 1 GB file took close to three minutes.
