1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: This card Destroyed 3 usb 3.0 flashdrives and a 500gb HDD in one shot. Set it up turned on the computer and the lights flashed went out and I kissed over $150 worth of storage good-bye. I am not pleased to say the least.

Other Thoughts: I will never recoup my losses from this feasco, but I hope someone else will not experience my heartache.

2 out of 5 eggskinda works

Pros: The first two ports always give me usb 3.0

Cons: Second two ports don't give me usb 3.0 speed, windows always tells me device can perform faster when plugging in usb 3.0 devices. If usb 3.0 drive is plugged in on start up in any of the four ports windows warns me that the devices can perform faster, but once it is booted, I get usb 3.0 speed form first 2 ports.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
MSI Z97 GD65 Gaming
8 gb DDR3 2350 ram
Nvidia GTS450 video
240 gb Crucial SSD System Drive
UEFI BIOS, GPT file system

Not worth the trouble of returning. I'll just use it as is, and hope it keeps working as is.

5 out of 5 eggsI didn't need the ports, but . . .

Pros: My motherboard (ASUS P8 Z68 Pro/Gen3) has been a little fickle of late. I suspected it happened whenever I attached more than two USB-3 external hard drives and started writing to them. Not always, but sometimes. On a previous system, adding a 3rd flash drive to a usb2.0 un-powered hub would re-boot the system so I suspect its a power problem. Rather than chance fate and an otherwise perfectly great mobo, I thought I'd try adding a few "separately powered" ports.
The card is rated at 1.5 amps (total I think) so I've attached two drives to it and the third to a system port. So far so good - and its every bit as fast as the motherboard ports ~ 112/MB / sec SSDs, about 50 MB/sec for the external spinners (cheap storage).

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: WARNING: Make sure you connect the card to the power supply!

Win 7 Pro didn't "find" a driver for the card, so I installed it from the supplied 80mm disk. Although the driver works great, while windows was recognizing the card (during install), it reported in found a USB 2.0 'device'. It's obviously providing 3.0 performance so I'll assume who ever wrote the drivers slipped the left pinkie.

5 out of 5 eggsNice USB 3.0 card

Pros: Great Looks, Great Performance, 90 to 101 MB/Sec from a thumb drive

Cons: Web site navigation could be a little easier for some. The Search function is a little broken.

Other Thoughts: I found the latest driver right on the "Top Download" section of their driver download site. "www.oricoonline.us/download.aspx"

1 out of 5 eggsJunk, stay away

Pros: None

Cons: Drivers are not digitally signed.

Connected this to an internal PCI-E x1 slot in my Asus P5E motherboard and as required connected a Molex power cable to the device.

I attempted to install drivers off disc and was able to install them. Rebooted. Plugged in my external drive and it wouldn't recognize it.

Uninstalled the drivers, rebooted, went to their website. Downloaded newest drivers, installed, rebooted... same thing.

This thing is going back to newegg tomorrow.

Stay away as the drivers will "load" but in my case the device wont actually pickup any of the drives connected to it.

Very disappointing.

If I could give it 0 eggs I would.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Physical installation was typical for PCI-Express, no surprises.

Cons: Windows 7 - 64 did not have a driver, neither did Win Update. The website for the vendor would not load from China. Loaded driver from the disk but which folder was not obvious. Driver did load. Transfer rate to new Seagate USB 3.0 external drive using the Seagate provided USB 3.0 cable is only ~35MB/sec. This is USB 2.0 speeds. I've been had.

Other Thoughts: Returning to Newegg.
