1 out of 5 eggsCorrupted my external drive so it lost the file system

Pros: Small, easy to install, looks and feels like great quality.

Cons: My external drive would keep disappearing from windows explorer view and I would have to turn off my drive for it to come back. Then it didn't come back at all and found the drive is not initialized and the file system has been corrupted.

Other Thoughts: I am now faced with paying for recovery software or formatting and starting over.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: I bought this USB 3.0 PCI adaptor for use with my external HDD for backups using a Seagate 3 TB HDD and Acronis as my backup program. When I installed the card and driver everything came up and is working perfect.

Cons: None so far

2 out of 5 eggsLook Elsewhere

Pros: Cheap
Cool case around PC Board

Cons: Doesn't work as advertised

Other Thoughts: Bought this to install in a slimline case for a client. It meets all my required specs EXCEPT it doesn't work properly. Only ONE of the USB ports is properly found and configured by the drivers. Additionally, the port that isn't found by the drivers doesn't run at 3.0 and randomly drops out and quits working.

4 out of 5 eggscorrection of my last rating

Pros: I kept trying to re-install the driver and when I clicked "uninstall the driver" (in the device manager), my computer crashed (Blue screen!). But after booting back, everything started working perfect.
I am not returning the card.

Cons: Many problems trying to make the card working. (See my other reviews, YB)

1 out of 5 eggsYB

Pros: unfortunately, none

Cons: This is a continuation of my last review.
I finally got the driver installed, but in the device manager it had the yellow exclamation error mark. I tried to update it (at the device manager) but windows said it was the right one.
I connected my external HD to the card's usb3 jack, changed the pci power setting to off. it did not detect the ext HD.
So I decided to uninstall the driver (at the device manager). Widows crashed - blue screen!
I disconnected the ext HD. restarted windows, and the driver was there without the warning. I plugged the ext HD, but it was not detected. I restarted windows, and the ext HD was detected and was working ok. I then found out that in order for the ext HD to work, I always need to restart windows after plugging it in. In my other computers with original usb3 jacks, the ext HD is available the moment I plug it in.
I am going to return the card.

1 out of 5 eggsstill struggling to make it work

Pros: Currently - none

Cons: I purchased this card because of all those 5 stars, but my computer (win 7 pro 64) cannot install the driver properly.
I tried to install/uninstall in about 20 different ways, different slots, without success.
I am now trying to get help from Orico.
I hope they will be able to solve my problems.
I will post the results later.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed...

Pros: This thing looks great!! It was very easy to install using the drivers I downloaded from their website. The speed is wonderful compared when using the same USB 3.0 drive between a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port.

Cons: Not too bad but, I wish it had a SATA power connector rather than a Molex.

5 out of 5 eggsNot too bad

Pros: You got'a love the aluminum case over the PCB. It's well made and gives it a nice touch of quality. Other than that, I assume the manufacturer choose a quality chip set for it. Everything works, and the transfer speeds are decent with 2.0 HDD's @30MB/sec average. I'm sure a 3.0 device will be much faster.

Cons: I purchased two of these for the same system, and I'm having difficulties getting both of them operational at the same time. I've confirmed that both work, but for some reason, my PC will usually only acknowledge the first one in the top PCIe 1X slot. When the MB fires up, it looks at all of it's expansions slots (I assume) starting from the top. And if both are plugged in, it always favors the one in the first PCIe 1X slot. Swapping them or just removing the top one only confirms they both work. This may be the fault of the MB or an outdated driver from the CD... which brings me to the next con...

I went to Orico's website and got the most current driver. It downloads as a RAR file, and every time I download it, it ends up being corrupt. So I had no choice but to use the CD.

Still, I'm going to go with everyone else's flow and give it 5/5, just because individually, they seem perfect.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard - Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH

My other thought is regarding the Molex power plug. Because I'm using two cards, one on each side of my GPU, and because they're so short, it make routing the power cables a bit of a headache. I'm using the stock cables that came with my Corsair AX 860i, and it's a problem. I need long single plug cables. The additional plugs on each cable are creating cable management issues. If I ever get both working correctly, I'll need to look into making some custom Molex cables to better clean up the wire mess.
