5 out of 5 eggsFirst time USB 3.0 user, and I'm impressed!

Pros: Great price, 5 USB ports (most cards only have 2 or 3), internal header for card reader, and of course the speed! I didn't have a USB 3.0 drive when this arrived at my post office box, so I picked one up the same day. It was worth it! To transfer an 8GB movie to the drive took about 12 minutes on my computer with USB 2.0, but under 3 minutes with this new card!

Cons: Like everyone says, the included driver disc is corrupted. But the drivers were easily downloaded from the Orico website, so that's not enough to lose an "egg" over. Also I got a PCI-E slot and RAM error that crashed my computer right after installing this, but since switching slots and reinstalling the RAM it works flawlessly. I'll blame the motherboard for all that. :)

Other Thoughts: Like I said, I'm a first time USB 3.0 user. I always thought it wasn't worth the money for a slight speed increase, but it is! I also got this as a Shell Shocker deal which was the only reason I bought it... it's a decision I don't regret!

3 out of 5 eggsGood hardware but came with corrupted driver

Pros: I bought it for the Internal USB3.0 20PIN

Cons: -Came with corrupted driver on disk.
-Website for Orico is very hard to find.
-Once you find the website, the driver is another challenge to find.

Other Thoughts: I just installed the express card. If you find the driver, everything will work fine. Website is http://www.orico.cc/download.php?id=41&page=2#goods_list. Cheers

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great! Got as a gift 12/15

Pros: Easy installation, fast speed with my external 2 TB USB3 hard drive. They must have fixed the driver problem because the driver on the disk worked fine. Motherboard :Gigabyte P43T-ES3G , Windows 7

Cons: The only thing I had a problem with is I had to adjust the rear panel screws to get it flush on the back of my computer, may be the way my motherboard sits.

Other Thoughts: Don't let windows installer install the drivers! Put it in with driver disk in the DVD drive, booted up , canceled the windows driver, ran the exe on the driver disk and picked the right model #PVU3-502I and installed fine. Saw where a while back they had some bad diver disks. A USB2 drive is slower on this card than in a on-board USB socket so Use USB3 stuff on the card and USB2 on the Motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great/Win10

Pros: Installed in minutes and was automatically recognized by Win10. Transfer rate is great.

Cons: Instruction manual is in broken English. Minor flaw considering ease of installation doesn't require a instruction manual.

3 out of 5 eggsTwo of the five ports have issues.

Pros: Extended the life of an older yet very reliable AM2+ motherboard that lacked USB 3.0. After reading other reviews, I did not even bother with the drivers on the disc and got them from a link posted by a previous reviewer. I did some testing writing/reading a 3.28GB movie file and a 32GB USB 3.0 flash drive. It read the file 162% faster than USB 2.0 (0:37 vs 1:37) and wrote the file 57% faster (1:16 vs 1:59). Pretty sure the slower write speed is due to the cheap flash drive.

Cons: Two of the ports in the back are very picky to say the least. One of them simply fails to recognize some thumb drives and the other tends to display the “the device could work faster..” windows message and indeed downgrades speeds to 2.0. Taking out and re-inserting the drive will often fix this issue, but still very annoying. The other 3 ports in the back and the front header ones work perfectly fine. It is probably an issue with the contacts not making a good connection.

Other Thoughts: Thought of starting the RMA process but decided it was not worth it: I mainly got it for the USB 3.0 header and that one works perfectly fine. As for the two temperamental ports in the back, I guess I will simply pretend they are USB 2.0 ports and leaving it at all. You are probably better off buying a cheaper card and using the savings for a descent USB 3.0 hub.

1 out of 5 eggsOrico PVU3-502I USB3.0 PCIe Card

Pros: Good looking card, seemed to have all I wanted.... but....

Cons: Card stock too thick for PCI socket on motherboard. Returned for credit. The bottom portion of the edge connector had been ground to a taper that allowed it to start into the socket, but plated portion of the connector was too thick (1.67mm) for the 1.60mm gap.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks excelent on Windows 10

Pros: Hi there recently buy this Orico PVU3-5O2I Pci card and im amazed a bout it have sole troubles to do it working on Windows 10 but finally can write this review so then pros:

1.- Five or more USB 3.0 plugs working.
2.- Works amazing.
3.- Can be Use with this Atech Flash Technology PRO-77U Flash Reader USB 3.0 5.25" to do a Killer combo on Windows 10, so can tou go with 9 Usb plugs and card slots. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817245002&cm_re=Atech_Flash_Pro-77U-_-17-245-002-_-Product
4.- Room to plug all my USB stuff to the Pc at the same time.

Cons: Ok to say something bad about it i have to say there are no drivers to this card on Windows 10 but the drivers VIA for windows 8.1 works fine it cost me about a week to find how to do the card works on Windows 10, so i leave here the direct link for the drivers.

http://www.via-labs.com/archive/doc/VIA_XHCI_Driver_V4.90A_AP.zip

Other point is the card don't work with the power of the PCI port you need to plug it to the main power supply to do it work ok?

About it works fine and are great.
