1 out of 5 eggsAVOID this card

Pros: USB 2.0 worked for a month

Cons: USB 2.0 stopped working after a month, only USB 1.1 works now, clueless tech support

Other Thoughts: Typical cheap junk, wasted my money. I would avoid anything made by PPA. Their tech support could careless.

2 out of 5 eggsEhh

Pros: Worked great for about a month, then one of the ports in the back completely stopped working. Since then only the second port works...but its still 2.0 fast...Cant beat the price.

Cons: Seems cheap. As some have suggested, there are quality issues with these cards.

1 out of 5 eggsBAD BAD

Pros: cheap. easy installation. Worked right away!!

Cons: It worked for 3 months perfectly fine and stopped working as USB 2.0 after that. Its now working as USB 1.1!! All my USB 2 devices working as USB 2 on my laptop but as USB 1.1 on this card on my desktop machine. DONT BUY THIS. Add a few bucks and gets a better one. I tried Adaptec and this PPA one both showed the same problem. and its not the problem of drivers. So I bought Belkin this time ( ~20 dollers) and its working great!!

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of time and money

Pros: None

Cons: I bought 2 of these and couldn't get either of them to work in any system. I tried multiple systems and multiple OS's (Windows and Linux) and they didn't work. The OS's saw the cards but nothing that was plugged into them.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself the aggravation and pick up a better card for a few bucks more.

5 out of 5 eggsPPA 3 Port USB 2.0 PCI Card Model 1073

Pros: The built-in USB ports on my kids machine stopped working. Deleting them and allowing windows to reinstall didnt help. This card was basically plug n play and solved the problem.

Cons: a small one - drivers came on a 3 inch CD, which wont work on the sideways mounted drive. I have to turn the computer sideways to install.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Low price, easy to install. Bought this for faster transfers to/from my USB flash drives. My system is a 1.7 GHz Dell. I opened the case and plugged in this card then rebooted. Windows XP Home recognized it and installed it automatically.
It works just fine. If your Win98 or Me system asks for drivers, go to the Win98&ME folder for them.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: Thanks, Newegg, for your competitive prices and attractive shipping rates!

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: It came in a useful box

Cons: This thing would not work at all. Windows saw it but anything plugged in would not work. Not sure if it was just my mb or not, didn't have any others to test it on.

Other Thoughts: My fault for getting the cheapest one here. Its not really worth my time or money to send this thing back. I guess next time I should spend the extra dollars for a better card.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: (none)

Cons: I purchased this add-in card from either Newegg or somewhere else, and experienced data corruption with it. I ended up swapping it out with a different card (different model) and all is well.

Other Thoughts: FYI, the card I have uses the ALI chipset. Apparently, this model uses either an ALI or NEC chipset.
