This review is from: StarTech PEXUSB3S42V 4 Port Dual Bus PCI Express (PCIe) SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter with UASP - SATA/LP4 Power - Retail
Pros: Works well, external drive now reaches speeds 4x of what I was previously getting (now ~135 MBytes/sec). Pretty much plug and play even for Windows Server 2012 OS.
You may want to invest in a SATA or regular power extension since you'll need to plug either a SATA power cord or a white 4-pin power plug to the card for it to work. This is not optional.
Cons: I dinged it 1 star because it didn't work in my older (Poweredge 2900) server - it just behaved as a USB 2.0 card. However it worked fine right away in my newer T620 server.
Other Thoughts: I looked quite a bit and this seems to be the only USB 3 card that works with Windows Server 2012. If you are backing up large amounts of data you'll see a sizable speed-up going this route.
