5 out of 5 eggsGreat for PS3 Fight Stick Owners

Pros: Bought this to use my MadCatz PS3 Fight Stick on my PC. Plugged in, Win 7 recognized it out of the box, the Fight stick worked. Better yet, I have even more USB ports to make use of.

Cons: None right now, but Syba isn't exactly a brand that is a household name. Not sure what I'd be up against if something was wrong.

1 out of 5 eggsNo drivers!

Pros: None

Cons: No drivers for anything newer than Windows 98/ME.

Other Thoughts: I searched everywhere for a driver to get this card working in my Windows 2008 x64 server and found nothing, not even on the VIA website. Waste of money! and it will cost more to ship back than I paid for the stupid thing, so I am out $8.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Great performer. I've used this time and time again in expanding USB in client's computers. Have never had a problem to date.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This item is still available, which should say something. Reduced price too. (Half of what I paid). At this price, I may have to order one to have on hand for future use.

5 out of 5 eggsNIce for the price

Pros: I bought these and installed on a Gateway GT5028. Computer was having problems with all the on board USB's. I reinstalled Windows hoping that would solve the problem but it didn't. Search Newegg and found this product and picked up 2 of these for the Gateway. Now the gateway has 8 new usb ports for around 20 bucks. Client was happy and so was I. I did not have to use the disc that came with it as the gateway automatically installed it. Computer is running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works as it's supposed to

Pros: Provides additional USB ports for a computer that only had 2. Now the user can hook up lots of stuff.

Cons: None encountered.

Other Thoughts: Needed the device. It installed easy. It worked right away. It solved the problem. Months later, it's still working fine.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks....minus one port

Pros: It was cheap and installed without a hitch. Does the job it needs to do.

Cons: For whatever reason, one of the USB ports refuses to work> I tried plugging in flash drives, and Xbox 360 controller, and a printer and it wouldn't talk. But its not a huge problem for me...there's 3 more ports. So for that I only dock one egg.

Other Thoughts: I needed four extra ports cause, like most geeks, I just have too many USB peripherals
