Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 bad product
Pros: none
Cons: it worked fine for a minute. copied a 4gb iso to a usb harddrive at 200MB/s. I was happy for a minute. tried to copy 75 GB of photos to my usb drive, about 3/4 of the way it blue screened. I rebooted and tried to copy the rest of the files then the computer locked up, power and reset button did not work. I had to pull the power cord.
Other Thoughts: I am using windows 7. don't waste your time with this piece of junk. would have given it 0 eggs if possible

Pros: None. At least not for the one I received.
Cons: MOLEX. loose molex connection. Doesn't work. BSOD.
Other Thoughts: My review should apparently be disregarded since according to other reviewers I just must not know what I'm doing. On the other hand when something just arrives not working well I shall review as such.

Categories > Add-On Cards > Syba > SYBA USB 3.0 PCI-e x1 2.0 Card with 2 External ports and internal 19 Pin USB 3.0 Header Model SD-PEX20139

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Does the Job, All You Can Ask For
Pros: -Works well with solid I/O performance.
-Renesas chipset which has best compatibility.
-Auto-detects in Windows 8 and 10.
-Handles large devices like a JBOD box well.
-Includes low profile bracket.
Cons: -Syba support is awful.
Other Thoughts: This is a basic upgrade but it does the job well. I bought it to use with a MediaSonic 8-bay JBOD drive box and it handles that like a champ. It also uses a Renesas chipset which is the most reliable and compatible of the ones I've used. Many of the other chipsets on the market have issues with anything that isn't a basic device.

Syba's support is pretty awful but you'll also likely never need it. Solid upgrade if you need it.

Categories > Add-On Cards > Rosewill > Rosewill RC-508 USB 3.0 PCI-E Express Card with 4 USB 3.0 Ports, Speed Up to 5.0 Gbps

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works Well on Windows 7
Pros: This is a pretty nice card it works well on the Windows 7 OS along with Linux
5gb transfer and never lost data transfer speeds
Cons: personal opinion but I do not enjoy molex
drivers were a little confusing
Other Thoughts: If you're using this for Windows 10 i say just buy a USB hub because Windows 10 has very little driver support at the moment and this card barely works on there, other than that great card

Categories > Add-On Cards > Syba > SYBA USB 3.1 5Gbps Multiport PCI-Express Host Card Model SD-PEX20199

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4
Pros: -decent price
-both types of usb 3.1 ports
-easy to install.
-comes with low profile bracket for sff systems.
Cons: was unusable on my gigabyte am3+ board. the am3+ chip-set doesn't have native usb 3 support. turned out that the my mobo and the syba card both used the same drivers. well apparently it couldn't handle two usb 3 controllers resulting in windows hanging on boot.
Other Thoughts: card worked fine on different system that used a different driver family. purchased a rosewill card for the am3+ system that also used a different driver family and didn't experience any problems. hard to say how comon this issue is but figure id mention it. worth money but watch out for driver conflicts.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Low Cost and Reliable USB 3.0 Upgrade for Older Computer
Pros: Works reliably, while adding USB 3.0 for older computers.
Cons: Did not grow me a new head of hair.
Other Thoughts: Needed to add some capability to the venerable old P4 HP DC7600 to more efficiently use external USB 3.0 external hard drives, as well as 2 USB 3.0 front panel connectors for modern flash drives.
Features of this card include availability of external power via 4 pin power connector, as well as front panel capability with the 20 pin header, at a very economical price. All you need is an unused PCI Express slot, and add a front panel USB 3.0 interface.
Price wouldn't matter if it didn't work but it does...quite nicely. Deployed since February, there have been no hiccups with the two external USB 3.0 HDD's. Paired with the Tek Republic TIU-3000 3.5 inch front panel, also available at New Egg, this old workhorse now also has two front panel USB 3.0 connectors.
Sure, the old single core P4 doesn't provide the horsepower of modern desktops, but the addition of this modest USB 3.0 capability hasn't caused it to stall, either; all for less than $30.
It is, however, important to choose a USB 3.0 card with the capability of adding external power, either via 4 pin HDD or a SATA power connector into the board, as PCI Express does not supply enough power to the USB 3.0 devices which do not have a supplementary power source themselves. This card takes care of that once properly installed and configured.

Update Nov 2016:
Another successful pairing of this card along with the Tek Republic 3.5 inch front panel unit into the wife's HP8000 CMT this time. The Tek Republic unit was mounted in a Bytecc Bracket-525 for the front of the case.
The only PCI Express slot remaining in her computer was the X4 slot, but as you experienced PCI Express users know, there is no problem with deploying an X1 card into an X4 slot. The card fit perfectly, and is secure.
The only challenge was routing external DC into the card. The sole remaining available power cable in the HP8000 was in the drive cage, which was some distance from the rear of the card. Had to add about a foot to the included power cable by splicing in and soldering some wire from an old molex power harness in the junk box. Fortunately, I have the same colors of heat shrink tubing as the power cable, resulting in an electrically solid custom cable which also looked nice. That's important when updating the wife's computer, eh?
Installation of the drivers was also easy; load the included CD, and just click on Renesas.
Now her HP8000 CMT has USB 3.0 capability for those modern peripherals.

Categories > Add-On Cards > Syba > SYBA 6-port (4x USB 3.0; 2x SATAIII) PCIe x1, Revision 2.0, VLI/ASMedia Chipsets with Standard Model SD-PEX50064

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works great with proper drivers!
Pros: This item requires the proper drivers downloaded online, not from the included disc. If you let Windows install generic drivers it will be nothing but trouble; but works great with the right drivers. This includes the USB 3.0 ports on the rear as well as the SATA 3 internal ports; very reliable and stable.
Cons: The included disc could have the proper drivers for Windows 7-64. A little confusing to find the drivers online, but if you follow the jist of the file names on the included paper, you'll find them OK.
Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this item if you're able to obtain the proper drivers. I needed both the rear USB 3.0 ports AND the internal SATA 3 ports as well. Has given my system much needed room and flexibility.
