3 out of 5 eggsRevised

Pros: See my other review here; it's still valid.

Cons: With Windows 8 the PC won't stay shut down, it keeps restarting. Removing this device corrects the issue. Windows 8 uses Microsoft USB 3.0 drivers and you can't use the Reneas drivers that you can download from Kingwin. It works on three Windows 7 PCs, one with Intel, and two with AMD chipsets, however if you once boot to Linux Mint or Ubuntu on an HDD or flash drive it starts not shutting down and keeps restarting. Switching off/on the power supply corrects it until next Linux boot. The Win 8 machine mentioned above is the same machine as one of the Win 7 machines mentioned above. Just one OS per drive and only one connected at any given time.

Other Thoughts: The take away here is if it is used on a Win 7 machine only, it seems ok. I've not experienced this restarting issue. For me this drive is useless.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Little Board

Pros: Was a great Price when I got it. However after time wasted it was a bummer deal.

Cons: Super flimsy soldering. DOA on 1 unit ... the other was severely unstable. Waste of time.

Other Thoughts: It happens. Newegg is great and usually has quality products.

They order ... we the consumer test ... they carry the best after a few of these reviews.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks But Slowwww

Pros: Installed OK.

Cons: Slow.

Other Thoughts: I can't see any difference in speed between this 3.0 card and the 2.0 on the M/B. I downloaded latest drivers from kingwin.com. I am showing between 25 and 30 MB/sec with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. I am writing to an external Toshiba USB 3.0 hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsUnique and Strong

Pros: I have no Molex in this Dell 8300 XPS, so I opted for this card being as I had one SATA power connector by the DVD drive. I got an OKGear extension cable and installed the card and cable. Presto! It works and will power my WD 500 GB HHD USB 3.0 drive. The 1st card I ordered was a single port and no extra power. It wouldn't power the dive. Now this one does, so I'm happy.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Little trouble finding the drivers on their site. This is where I found them by doing a U3PCI-2 search at KingWin Downloads.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat system upgrade

Pros: Great price.
Easy installation, included driver disc worked well. Slipped right into the motherboard and after driver installation took right off.

Cons: None, nada, zip!

1 out of 5 eggsKingwin U3PCI-2 usb3 card

Pros: inexpensive card, no pros

Cons: It does not work on a mac like the description says.. Even the packaging says it will work on MAC 10.2 or above.

Other Thoughts: Now I pay to ship it back for a refund because they describe it as working on a mac then they say it won't make up your mind and change your packaging.
