5 out of 5 eggsReally Inexpensive and very reliable !

Pros: On Feb 15th 2014 this PCI 4+1 USB card will be 5 years old -and- it has given trouble free performance under WinXP and immediate, automatic recognition by several Linux Operating Systems, currently Lubuntu 13.01. My PC gets 6+ hours use PER DAY use with a UPS battery surge protector, LED illuminated keyboard, many flashdrives and 3 HDD/SSD portables feeding off extensons plugged into this PCI card. The single internal USB socket feeds a PS powered 4-Port USB 2.0 Front Panel Hub also made by Syba (from Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817801001 ) that was installed at the same time and is still working great. Even when you outgrow your current PC an get a new one, this PCI card can live on in the new one.
THAT my friends is an extremely well earned 5 Star rating that speaks well of NewEgg's wise choice and the manufacturer's real world quality.

Cons: Back in Feb 2009 when I bought it, it was on sale and $2 cheaper. Even at TWICE the current price, it is still a bargain!

Other Thoughts: If you do not own one of these (or the latest USB 3.0 model for newer USB 3.0 computers) you are really missing out on the capabilities of those unused PCI slots on your MoBo. Adding 3 foot long USB extension cables brings these 4 back-o-the-PC USB terminals to your desktop, so be aware of that too.

1 out of 5 eggsCard DOA

Pros: None

1 out of 5 eggsConsider yourself warned...

Pros: cheap
small

Cons: slow (15MB/sec on HD Tune sequential reads in my testing)
destroyed two hard drives in a row (!)

Other Thoughts: I had one of these spare cards sitting around, and attempted to use on an older server which only had USB 1.1 ports (Serverworks chipset). Pretested two drives prior to imaging server in an external USB HD enclosure, both tested perfectly (including full drive write tresting) but after successful backup imaging of a raid array, I shutdown the server and in both cases the USB drives were very hot would no longer power up on multiple machines. I also confirmed the drive's damage outside of the USB enclosure. I tested the 2nd drive even more thoroughly (noticing the drive didn't get nearly as hot in a newer computer with normal usb 2.0 ports), went through the same "successful" imaging process again and it destroyed the 2nd known good drive.

I compared this Syba card to another similar card after and this tiny card has 1 cap vs about 15 on the other (obviously higher quality) card. This under-engineered product is likely only designed to handle low power draw devices and apparently destroys devices with a high sustained power draw. NOT RECOMMENDED.

5 out of 5 eggsMore is Better

Pros: It is nice to have the 4 extra USB ports. Since nearly all items connected to a system run USB, what comes with the MOBO alone may not be enough, if not this card is well worth the few bucks it cost.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsUm, It Works!

Pros: It's tiny and it works. The slim design helps circulate air through the case.

Cons: There isn't enough ice cream in the house.

Other Thoughts: If you need it, go for it. They haven't burned out and the material is decent.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy as USB to setup

Pros: Easy to install and setup.

Cons: 5 USB port was inside the computer. I needed it for the outside of the computer.

Other Thoughts: Easy to install, just plug n' play. I can understand why you might need a USB port inside your computer, but in my situation i needed a 5th one outside. But i'm not docking an egg because of it.

3 out of 5 eggsSecond Time was the charm

Pros: price, very easy installation; no driver disc needed on a XP machine. Stellar service from NewEgg

Cons: first board was defective. Manufacture quickly responded to my emails for help but sent me back to New Egg for RMA.

Other Thoughts: The card comes with 4 external ports and 1 internal that is connected to the same wiring as one of the external ports, so if you use the internal you only have 3 external at your disposal.

The first card I received was defective; only the 2 center ports worked, in fact, if I tried to plug anything - even a USB extension cable not connected to anything else - into any of the other ports the PC would immediately die; scared the carp out of me the first time it happened.

The only way to get the machine to start again was to physically remove the card and reboot.

Re-installing the card and plugging into the two center external ports worked fine.

Since it was under warranty I contacted the manufacturer; they sent me back to New Egg.

NewEgg was great helping me to RMA the card & sent a replacement quickly after they got the old one back.

New card works but I cant honestly give more than 3 stars because of a severely defective 1st card and a bit of a brush off from manufa

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price and easy setup

Pros: Easy install. Works exactly as described and expected.

Cons: There was a storm ni NJ that delayed shipment, though not the fault of the card or Newegg, but there aren't any other cons.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned in other reviews, there are only 4 working ports on this card. Use of the internal port will cause one of the external ports to not function. Hopefully 4 USB ports is enough.
