4 out of 5 eggsWorks!

Pros: Works! Installed the latest drivers from Via's website. Now I have front mount USB 3 in my new case. Nine dollar promo code and free shipping make this a easy call.

Cons: As the others have said, must use a 1X slot. I understood that when I bought the card, but had to try it in a different slot to see what they were talking about. Caused a very slow boot and an unresponsive PC when not in the proper slot.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite Impressive!

Pros: For those like me who have a motherboard with one USB 3 19 pin connection and want to utilize the USB 3 built into my case as well as the ones that come on a card reader or front panel device, this is a perfect solution at an excellent price. I saw this in one of the newegg weekly emails at ~$14 and noticed that it did include an internal 19pin usb3 connection unlike many other cards in that price range I was instantly sold. Install was easy just make sure you use an x1 or x16 port and I advise plugging your 19/20pin connector and 4 pin molex in before plugging into the board if you have an aftermarket cpu cooler and graphics card (or other components above and below the port you intend to put this into, it was a little difficult to plug in the usb3 with the card in the slot so i just pulled it, attached both connectors and then plugged it in and was a breeze. software was simple, no real configuration just driver install and a reset or two. Card looks to be of quality construction and material.

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: Didnt want to list as a con because it could have been my case, but had to slightly bend the metal shield so it would line up with the screw hole on my case. No big deal at all, off by 1/8".
More importantly I will be paying closer attention to the HooToo brand as this is my first product from them. I expected much less for the price than what I received so great job to HooToo. They also include some information that tech enthisusiasts like myself will strongly appreciate!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks in Ubuntu, too

Pros: Works out of the box with Ubuntu 13.10. I transcode with Handbrake directly from a DVD drive to a Seagate Expansion drive without errors, so far. I have a dual drive system with Windows 7 64 bit. There is no USB 3.0 support for Windows 7 and below, so you do need to install the drivers either from the mini disk or download from the Hoo Too website, which I chose instead of the disk. Works as intended in Win 7 once you install the driver.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Installed in an Asus motherboard (P7P55D) in a PCI Express 2.0 X 16 slot that runs X4 without issue. Way more faster than 2.0
