1 out of 5 eggsAwful to install!

Pros: Many ports
cheap

Cons: Driver file for windows corrupt on CD supplied with the board. The link provided by Newegg doesn't work because it goes to the Orico US website that is broken. There are two other Orico websites and only one has a driver that works:

http://orico.cc/download.php?keywords=pvu3

I have not yet benchmarked performance but I'm suspect given the trouble in getting a driver for this card.

Other Thoughts: This is not a good card for anyone other than a an internet voyager who is willing to take a chance on getting drivers for this card.

2 out of 5 eggsGot it to Work

Pros: Storage devices work great with it. Number of ports is awesome. Serves my purpose for the price.

Cons: The disc with the drivers are corrupted as other posts say. Had to download the drivers from the website. Needed to translate the website from Thai. Had to download a wierd unzipper as the files were compressed in an arc form and not zipped. Have trouble with blue tooth adapter, keyboard and mouse dongles.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: paperweight

Cons: Everything

Other Thoughts: Wouldnt even work, Tried it out on a Windows 10 build, Recognizes and installs in device manager, but wont work/read. Same story on windows 7 Machine, Too much hassle to try to return for something so cheap so just ate the cost. Sometimes you get more than what you pay for but not in this case, I took the gamble. I recommend you don't.

3 out of 5 eggsOK once you get through some hoops

Pros: - Cheap
- Works

Cons: - Sticky substance and fingerprints all over the pcb and port plate; could only get the stuff off the port plate
- Corrupt driver disc, initial google searches fruitless

Other Thoughts: - Seeing as how its not offered anymore, doesn't matter

- If you're looking for the driver, it can be downloaded here: http://orico.cc/download.php?id=41&page=2#goods_list
choose the driver for PVU3-5O2U, good to go.

1 out of 5 eggsWho in their right mind would buy if they read any of the Reviews?

Pros: Price if you happen to get it to work. Not very many of your customers got it to.

Cons: Poor Quality along with poor support any a good address for downloading the drivers. Hard to believe Newegg doesn't offer how to download drivers. I was really interested buy after reading reviews i would not buy anything from this company. Easy to see why Newegg got the product cheap enough to sell at such a low price.

Other Thoughts: I would never recommend this product. Only wish i could rate it ZERO Eggs

3 out of 5 eggsNice featured card crippled by a bad install disk and no Windows10 native support.

Pros: Nice 6 port card with Via chipset design. Except the PCIe bridge is the VL805and not the VL800.

Cons: I had a mojror install issue that cost me 2 hours. The bottom ot ehr PCI bracket was slightly over bent which caused the card to not seat correctly in the PCIe slot. Thus an unidentifiable and uninstallable card. After two machines I straightened the bracket a little and lo and behold it was identified.
Windows10 did not have native drivers for the board.
The Bridge is VL805 and not VL800.
Nice that Orico includes a mini disc with drivers.
Bad that the driver zip was corrupt and worthless.
The disc must be for the VL800 interface and they did not want to throw away a disc.
Orico website is Chinese only so there is no support in English.
You have to use the Newegg page link and that did get me to a US site in english. Go to the Via Labs site for the latest driver,

Other Thoughts: The USB connectors, all 7, are marginally soldered. The solder does not fill the entire pin/hole. Could be beter.
Looks like a good card. I would rate it higher if It worked and installed out of he box.

1 out of 5 eggsPLEASE DO NOT BUY. THIS ITEM IS EXCHANGE ONLY. ANOTHER FINE ORICO PRODUCT (lol)!

Pros: works out of box linux...

NUMEROUS REVIEWS CITE THE EXACT SAME COMPLAINT.
ONE YEAR LATER : DITTO NO RESPONSE

Other Thoughts: Too bad nobody at ORICO cares enough to do anything about the corrupt driver

1 out of 5 eggsNot my favorite.

Pros: - Well I only wasted $12 instead of potentially wasting $25+ on all of the competition.

Cons: - Uses way more power than I expected. If I want to use it and use my fans, I have to upgrade my power supply...
- Came with an install disk. that would be awesome if it weren't unreadable. I had to find the drivers on the internet. the worst part being that the website provided in the TEENY TINY instruction manual is not a real site. It doesn't load. So I decided to try going to the site that wasn't in English. Google cant read most of the site so it assumes its in English and doesn't translate to a readable webpage. So I blindly downloaded about 6 different applications which were all in English.... finally I found the right link and installed it. the second I did, the computer shut down and windows was no longer working. I had to reinstall windows completely. I will never, EVER buy from Orico again.

Other Thoughts: - I would say I got what I paid for, but something this awful they should be paying me to use their product.

1 out of 5 eggsWhy, oh why, did I not read the reviews before ordering this product! Worse yet, I ordered two!!

Pros: Well, it looks nice. And the hardware installation was relatively simple.

Cons: I have struggled for about two hours now (perhaps 3) to install the software. Finally, I got to a point where there apparently is supposed to be installation software, but the "setup.hta" program told me that the installation software is corrupted. Well, that's nasty, but I will just download the installation software. But where? I have not yet found it. Perhaps some one else has and will make it available. Perhaps not. Someone else wrote that "it looks nice. Indeed. And that is the only "feature" I have found so far.

Other Thoughts: No, I would not recommend this to other people. No, I would not buy this again. (I assume there is something similar made by an American company. I am so tired of trying to decipher the garbled "English" I get from foreign companies and foreign support people.
