1 out of 5 eggsORICO

Pros: It looks pretty!!!

Cons: The PCIe card somehow prevents my boxes from posting. I thought it may be a power issue, so I purchased cables (for a $30 tag I was surprised they were not included) I then flashed my BIOS & it still does not boot. The red flag on this item is the one way ticket "This item is not eligible for a refund." which I did not see until after the payment cleared. I gave the cards to a friend who delights in succeeding where I've failed...and I've still not heard from her.....

Other Thoughts: Next stop is Inateck!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jason,

Thank you very much for choosing ORICO as your preferred choice.
We are terribly sorry that there's something wrong with the ORICO products.
Please make sure the things below when use it:
1. Please install the driver properly.
2. If the boxes are functional.
3. If the express works well at your friends' computer.
If it works well at your friend's computer then it's a compatibility problem.
It it doesn't work at other computers please contact us via lor@orico.com.cn or supports@orico.com.cn for a replacement.
We really appreciate it if you can give us a chance to fix the problem.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks again for your support to us.

Best Regards
ORICO customer care team

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the Job!

Pros: It works right out of the box, on Win8. All devices work at very high speeds.

Cons: Because of it's high number of slots, they're spaced out too close. Can't complain though. It's just a little gripe.

Other Thoughts: Great for an older system if you want the speed of USB 3.0

3 out of 5 eggsYet another PCI-E USB3.0 card designed to annoy

Pros: lots of ports, I DID get it to work, by downloading a driver...


But this is the fourth (different brands and models) USB 3.0 hub card I've bought and the others either didn't work at all, worked intermittently or quit working.

Cons: The non-functional driver disc is INEXCUSABLE!

IF this card were made in JAPAN I would suggest handing the people responsible a sword and be ready to throw salt into their wounds...

this product takes far too much effort to make it do the relatively simple job it does.

Other Thoughts: If these people could be bothered to provide a working driver disc it might be a good product...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Allan,
This is Cristine From ORICO Customer Care Team.
We realized that there's something wrong with the ORICO item.
We wonder would you mind cooperating with us to fix that by telling us what the problem is?
Our goal is for you to be completely satisfied with this transaction.
It will be greatly appreciated it if you can contact lor@orico.com.cn for warranty service.
Thank you again for choosing ORICO as your preferred choice.
Have a wonderful day ahead.
Best Regards

3 out of 5 eggsNo Comment (yet)

Pros: nice looking card

Cons: The Drivers took some creativity to find, I had to use an online translator (worldlingo dot com) to translate the chinese text and only then was the link clickable. the exact drivers link and variations of the link I will post, hopefully the good people at newegg will understand and not remove the link because they are not easy to find.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: This works very well for what it is, plug it in and install the driver.

Cons: Oh man. The biggest con is the driver itself, Once you find that you can simply install it and get it to run, The only problem is finding the thing, though to save some work. here's a link for the exact file

puu.sh hNJgH 568d63836c.zip

Of course anyone smart will know to put slashes after puush and HNwhatever.

Other Thoughts: Please fix the CD's. this took a good hour to finally find.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

Pros: Sounds good in theory. I bought it to have one internal usb 3.0 connection which I need. The fact that there's a few more external usb 3.0s is a huge plus... EXCEPT YOU CAN'T USE ANY OF THEM!!

Cons: First of all it requires a MOLEX power connection... ok so it needs power, but it was a pain just trying to reconfigure my computer to get power with MOLEX. Why doesn't the PCI port power? I don't know.

The CD included is a total waste. Every driver on is "corrupt" so there is no way to install the driver via the CD, so I headed over to the website (as instructed by the manual) to download the driver, but guess what! Not one of there products has support to download ANY driver! DO NOT BUY FROM ORICO!!! Your purchase is non-refundable!! I actually sent one of these back to NewEgg and asked for a comparable model from a different brand... NOPE! They would only sent me the exact same one from the same brand! I will never buy from ORICO again!!!!

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS OR ANY OTHER ORICO PRODUCT!!!!

3 out of 5 eggsGood and Bad

Pros: Seems well made (common theme among reviewers.) Windows 8.1 Pro drivers worked out of the box. However, I did update to the VIA drivers (Get 4.40D USB 3.0 drivers on via-labs dot com slash driver dot php.) Recognized USB 2.0 devices (my MOBO's 3.0 slots don't.)

Cons: Was not recognized in PCI Express ×16 slot. Fortunately, I had a PCI Express ×1 just below my graphics card with space.
Driver CD is bunk (common theme among reviewers) and setup program does not load. Just gets "setup file is corrupt."
Manufacturer's website is horrible, including the driver downloads, which do not work.
Does NOT include a 20-pin male header to connect to front USB 3.0. While the description does state that an "adapter" is not included, I find the notion that this card helps connect front USB ports to be misleading other than the fact that it has 2 ports facing inward.
Also requires a MOLEX connector for power (which I mistakenly thought was the 20 pin header.) Can't the PCI bus drive the power?

Other Thoughts: Get the drivers from VIA if you don't have Windows 8.1.
There are other USB 3.0 cards, including some made by Orico, that have the 20-pin header directly on the card. I would frankly return this one to get another, but I bought it non refundable on New Egg Flash. So now I have to purchase a "2 Port USB 3.0 Type A Male to 20 Pin Header Male Adapter" to do what I originally bought this card to do (search and you'll find one.)
