1 out of 5 eggsworking now

Pros: not much.

Cons: painful to get working. manual poor, website poor (3 separate driver downloads with no tips as to which one you'd need)

Other Thoughts: Finally got it to work. I switched to a new PCI-E slot, booted, then it FINALLY showed in Dev Mgr as Universal Serial Bus controller with yellow alert. I then right clicked it,Update Driver software, browsed their disc to \vli\vl80x (or was it win7\x64 dir below that? don't remember), got msg successfully installed Via USB Extensible host controller, but msg in systray said something didn't install. In Dev Mgr now yellow alert on "xHCI Root Hub 0", I again pointed it to that dir and it installed, and Dev Mgr showed clean. After reboot, installed xhci host controller driver v 4.30a I directly downloaded from VIA. (Spoke to their tech supp who said get it working with driver from their disc b4 updating the driver.) So far with my Western Digital external USB3.0 drive, got some flaky "no partition, format?" message I'd never gotten before in SmartWare, or SmartWare would freeze up. Updated Smartware, & haven't run into it again but I'm still leery and will continue to watch for drive issues, or system instability as others have encountered. Now if only I can find a cheap cable (to run from it) and a cheap 3.0 front panel assembly.

1 out of 5 eggscheap and inoperative

Pros: none.

Cons: all drivers fail, so useless card !

Other Thoughts: I tried the driver from their disc, also one from VIA-labs, and all 3 drivers from their website which they don't tell you which one you need. They all fail with error "Sorry, the install wizard can't find the supported hardware in your system". I have Win7 x64. Good luck preventing Windows from installing a driver...it does it so fast, and my Device Manager shows no yellow alerts, but neither do I see "Syba" mentioned anywhere in Device Manager, so how can I uninstall a driver without the device appearing? A USB hard drive attached to it does not appear in Explorer. The molex connector is attached and I have a green LED. Motherboard=Gigabyte EP-35-DS3L that has only one PCI-E slot.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Please ensure that the device is properly seated in a PCIe slot.

Also check to make sure that you have the latest drivers installed for the device.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Bought some of these at work for use with the SYBA SY-HUB20134. No issues other than having a power cable long enough to reach the back of the case. Backup to a WD Passport drive over USB 3.0 is nice and fast now.

Cons: I imagine some power supplies do not have Molex connectors these days. I would have been nice to have a SATA-style power connector on the board.

Other Thoughts: Because I didn't have a long enough power cable to reach the card on a 1U rack mount workstation and I was only hooking up a powered USB 3.0 hub, I tried it without the power connected. It did not work. Make sure you have all the ancillary cables required. Note the Molex power connector.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent value and performance

Pros: It's affordable, easy to install, and performs well. I'm not seeing any of the issues raised by other reviewers. I bought this because I wanted a internal 20-pin USB 3.0 header since it allows for a simple, clean connection of the USB 3.0 front panel ports on many newer cases.

Cons: There's no low-profile bracket which would be a deal-killer if I needed to install it in a slim desktop or HTPC case.

Other Thoughts: As with most hardware I purchase, I didn't bother with the included driver CD. I downloaded and installed driver version 1.90A from the VIA Labs download page, and it is working fine. There's also version 2.10B, but strangely it is older than 1.90A if you believe the website.

3 out of 5 eggsReplacement Works!

Pros: I received a replacement card. And it works this time. I guess 1st one was a DUD. Now, it transfers files without a problem. No more sudden disappearance of DEVICE! No more yellow warning sign in DEVICE DRIVER!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: SYBA's tech support was quick and responsive. KUDOs.

Thanks.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work

Pros: None

Cons: It does not work. VL800 series is HOST CONTROLLER meaning that it does all the processing in software in computer main memory.

I tried to make it work chaing PCIe lane settings and checking power supply, cable connection,. It fails. Tried on different systems, same result. During a file transfer, it just goes YELLOW in device driver.

Rebooting so many times to try several times after uninstalling and reinstalling the device driver .90A. It does not work.

Other Thoughts: It does not work. I am in the process of contacting their support.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

There are two important steps to install the newest USB 3.0 controller cards:
1. Make sure the driver is installed correctly. Instead of letting Windows search the driver on Internet. Please manually lead the Windows Installer to search the driver CD bundled with our card. Once the driver is installed without error, you are half way there.
2. Make sure the power feed in the back of the card is connected to a power source.

USB 3.0 controller usually demand more power than PCI-e slot can supply.

If still not working, please give us a call. Our technical support team is available to help 9am-5pm M-F. Feel free to contact us during those business hours at support@sybausa.com

As you know, we are more than happy to provide our customers with a hassle free exchange when a product is defective.

SYBA offers an online RMA form the user can easily fill out submit it for a quick RMA return and exchange.

It is SYBA's policy to answer all customer inquiries within 24 hours (M-F)

1 out of 5 eggsAVOID

Pros: Little to none

Cons: Started up the computer and got a windows message that the USB component was drawing too much power. Removed this junk and now no message (trying to install drivers had no effect). Installed a competitor's and viola - USB in the front panel.

Other Thoughts: Don't vendors test products anymore?? Or is it just "When in doubt ship it out"?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Many of the new USB 3.0 devices consume more energy than USB 2.0 devices. We have integrated a power feed in the back of the card to provide enough power for the card, and the devices connected to this card.

In your case, your motherboard PCI-e slot does not provide enough power to drive our card. Please connect the Molex power to this card. Once our card has the proper power feed, you will find out that not only will our card work, but it will power many of the newer USB 3.0 devices better than our competitors.

Our technical support team is available to help 9am-5pm M-F. Feel free to contact us during those business hours at support@sybausa.com

We are more than happy to provide all of our customers with a prompt exchange whenever a product becomes defective.

5 out of 5 eggsSyba USB3 PCI-e Controller

Pros: Looked hard to find this little gem. Had to get this to use the AFT PRO-57U card reader. This one works because of the placement of the 20 pin port. Others would not work because the 20 pin cable end was too big.
This card matches USB 3.0 transfer speeds on all ports and is a great upgrade either for the card reader I mentioned or if you are simply upgrading to a case with front panel USB 3. Detects in Windows 7 with no issues.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This does require a molex power cable to be properly powered - it is NOT optional, as I found out. If it isn't detected, make sure all cables and card are seated snugly and properly. I forgot about molex power plug on initial install.
