4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Get the drivers right and it works.
Tech support is prompt and courteous.

Cons: Unclear as to which driver to install.

Other Thoughts: Not sure I needed USB 3.0. I bought this along with a Transcend (TS-RDF5K) card reader to read my class 10 SD cards. The card reader ran almost as fast on USB 2 as it did on USB 3. This is likely a limit of my SD cards. The new card reader blew the doors off my old card reader when both were on USB 2.
Not sorry I made the purchase. Good price and now I have USB 3. Next SD cards I buy will probably be faster.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for only a few minutes..

Pros: None.. It did not work for me at all.. I think I got a bad one.. the reviews seems nice enough, so I ordered this one, but not happy... tried everything but it still windows 7 64 bit would not install properly.. It may be that I got a bad board.. also there were no drivers had to look in website manufacturer. I also didn't forget to plug in the power and tried one at a time, no work,, even with the correct driver from the website.. Shame.

Cons: everything, since it didn't work and I might have got a bad board, who knows? ether that or it would work on a windows 8 system.. but not on my windows7 .

4 out of 5 eggsbuy

Pros: FAST
for when you don't have a usb 3.0 board and need an extra card it helps out so much.

Cons: need a molex connector which isn't an issue just annoying when your trying to go for a clean build.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap way to add USB 3.0

Pros: Provides 2 USB 3.0 connectors to your system, and uses 1 pci-express 1.0 slot. Fast transfer speeds, easy to install.

Cons: Requires a molex connector. Drivers must be downloaded from the mfr. website.

Other Thoughts: My system has eSATA, but no USB 3.0, so I bought this to support a new VANTEC NST-380SU3-BK USB3/eSATA hard drive enclosure. At this price, and the price of the enclosure, it would be crazy to pass this up. Was up and running in about 5 minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Works fine, 3.0 speeds. SATA and Molex PSU connections.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have an extra cable that can reach from the PSU. Some DELL users may need to re-configure their HD location so as to have a connection that can reach the card. Make sure not to plug in both PSU connections.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Install

Pros: Works as advertised. I get at least a 50% boost in the read and write numbers from USB 2.0.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: You have to go to the Transend website to download the latest drivers.
