5 out of 5 eggsSolves Internal USB3 Connection Prob

Pros: Allowed me to buy a less expensive motherboard and still use my case front usb3 connector. The card has that double wide internal Jack for your front usb3 cable.

Cons: None here.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Price
Accessories
Function
Features
Software

Cons: Absolutely NONE

Other Thoughts: I was building a backup system out of spare parts I had laying around and I was building in a new case which both front USB connections are 3.0. I was using an older 780i motherboard that doesn't have a USB 3.0 header so I needed a fix and I found it in this Orico PCIe card. I looked at several cards in different places before finding this jewel here on the Egg and I have to say that I was shocked at what I received for the price I paid. First off the card works flawlessly and the driver install was a breeze in 7 x64. The card came with a black standard bracket which matches the case and a low profile bracket as well. It also came with a 4 pin Molex to SATA power adaptor as well as the driver disc. I have not tested speeds but I can say that USB 2.0 drives transfer faster on the 3.0 connection through this card than they do in the 2.0 connections on the board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Does what it says
Cost effective
Effortless connectivity with Window 7 and 8.1

Cons: The 20pin internal plug (as mentioned in other reviews) is difficult to disconnect without fear of damaging something, but once you get it down it seems to be ok. It is definitely a weak point though.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these. One for a friend and one for myself. They were both installed with ease and Windows 7 and 8.1 handled them just fine. I did have to use the CD so I would suggest not loosing it. I didn't check to see if I could get the software online.
I have no way of checking the max capabilities of this card but I have seen both read and write speeds of about 125MB/s.
It is possible that you would not be able plug into the usb ports on the back if you have things really tight on your case. The ports are not centered in the slot. On my friend's computer I had to move it to a different PCIe slot because the case interfered with plugging either a flash drive or a usb cable into it.

5 out of 5 eggsUSB now on case

Pros: Gives me a 3.0 connection on my case. Easy to install. Drivers it came with worked perfectly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I got this solely to provide an internal connection to my 3.0 USB port on my fairly new case. It's nice to know I have 2 more ports if I ever need them.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked as expected

Pros: I have this installed in two cases and it works as it should. The physical install was quick and the drivers installed with no problems from the website.

Cons: Be careful with the capacitors when plugging in the molex connector for power. I almost broke two off, because they are right behind the plug and I was using them for pressure without realizing it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product - Company Defunct?

5 out of 5 eggsNice Smaller Card

Pros: Small card, low profile bracket. Full USB 3 speeds. Nice to have an internal connector too - used it for a card reader.
Price is great for an add it card.

CD install was simple and worked on first try (not my experience with the Orico 7 port card)

Cons: Needed a +5V power extension for larger case. No raw driver on CD

Other Thoughts: You need a molex +5V to power the card. I needed an extension to make reach mine in a full size case. Don't knock the company and rate low if you can't figure this out and claim a high tech capability. Yes an extension would be nice to put in the box, but for $13, you can't really expect that.
