4 out of 5 eggsA decent card to give you USB3.0 speeds.

Pros: Once you find the drivers, it works very well. Worked perfectly on both Win7 and 8.1. It is a good expansion card for a machine that does not have USB 3 ports..

Cons: Only works in Windows...
And like the others, the included driver CD was corrupt.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you find and download the drivers before you purchase this card, after that it's smooth sailing...

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid

Pros: Nice looking card

Cons: Card was shipped with known corrupted drivers disk. The website that others have been so kind to link in their reviews is no longer up. This has been a very frusterating experiance.

Other Thoughts: It's really too bad the driver disk hasn't been fixed after all this time. It looks to be a very nice card

4 out of 5 eggsDriver is a pain, but product is solid

Pros: Product is a great way to upgrade an old PC or provide expansion. All ports functioned once the proper driver was installed. High functionality for the price. Well, cheap compared to other equivalent products.

Cons: Driver on disk is corrupted, which almost everyone who have bought this product have confirmed. You'll have to find the drivers online. The US website for Orico does not have drivers or manual as of 5/16/15. Another reviewer posted a link for drivers that also no longer has anything on it.

This one worked like a charm:

I probably should dock it 2 eggs for the inconvenience. But it works.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Driver!

Pros: None as it does not work

Cons: Knowingly shipped with a corrupted driver disk. The website to download the driver no longer exists! I have a useless card

3 out of 5 eggsA pain to get to work

Pros: 5 rear ports plus internal header for front bay.

Cons: Drivers on CD are corrupt as everyone else has said. Took forever to find correct drivers. Almost every site was Chinese or did not exist. Please update driver link for this. I posted a good link below.

Other Thoughts: Correct drivers for windows xp, vista, 7, and 8 can be downloaded here.

Also I posted another bad review earlier that seems to went to limbo. What's up with that Newegg?

1 out of 5 eggsbad drivers

Pros: looks pretty. 5 external usb3 and internal header.

Cons: Whats up with the drivers? I bought 2 of these and drivers on disks are corrupt. Have not found any working links to drivers anywhere.

Other Thoughts: Need a working link for drivers that will work for this card.

2 out of 5 eggsPhysically OK, but drivers suck

Pros: Sounds good. Would be nice to have 7 more USB ports - BUT - none of them work right now.

Cons: Mini-CD has corrupt driver. Online is not helping. Can't find drivers for this model. Do any exist? Maybe.

Other Thoughts: Would like any leads to an actual working copy of the driver.

2 out of 5 eggsDifficult to install (hardware & software)

Pros: Should add USB 3 ports once I get it to work

Cons: This thing is difficult to install. The instructions are poorly written in translated English. The install CD is corrupt. One must download from a website. The instructions don't say which driver to load (there are drivers for several cards).

Once installed, I find I need an exteranl power source for the card. It uses the old fashioned SAC-05 5-pin power plug, so I need an adapter from SATA power (on order). What a nightmare!

4 out of 5 eggsTransfer boost for an aging system

Pros: Gives USB 3.0 speeds to an aging Phenom II system. Usb 3.0 headers give me front panel ports too, which rocks.

Cons: Knocked a star off for the ports intermittently not working. 97% of the time it works like a charm, but every so often, I'll plug into a port and it doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure how it operates with multiple usb3 devices plugged in. At most, only one port is being used, which is usually my flash drive to back stuff up on an HDD that's hooked up via eSATA.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work on Win 8.1 x64

Pros: Nice looking card; seems like quality. Has 5 USB 3.0 ports. Looked forward to using it.

Cons: Wasted a whole day on tying to get it to work with Windows 8.1 x64. My system is very clean with all the newest and correct drivers and BIOS updates. Everyone knows that the included CD is corrupted !! I downloaded the VIA install file, but my PC wouldn't boot with the card installed. I installed the s/w first (as Administrator) and it went OK. Still, my system hangs on a big blue screen with a CLOCK error !!!

Other Thoughts: Finally, I quit. I took it out and put in my 2-port USB 3.0 card, and got back to normal. I just didn't have a day to waste on this simple-pimple card install !! Another thing, most of the links given online and in the small install sheet brought me to Chinese-language pages !? There's a lot of broken English, too. My feeling are that they won't have a fix for Win 8.1 x64, and anything else I try will be more wasted time. It goes back to Newegg ASAP.
