5 out of 5 eggsSomething to Fill a PCIe x1 Slot

Pros: This is the third StarTech PCIe-USB2 card I have purchased. I like the internal USB port, used for a Bluetooth mini-adapter. Windows Vista automatically detected the card and installed drivers. Can always use 4 more external USB ports.

Cons: Pricey. Why are PCI versions of a USB expansion card like this cheaper?

Other Thoughts: Don't know why years after the introduction of PCIe slots, it seems little is available for the lowly PCIe-x1 slot. Yet there it sits on the lower edge of almost every motherboard.

3 out of 5 eggsdoesn't work with XP SP3

Pros: extra usb ports if using XP SP3

Cons: spent a good 2-3 days wrestling with this. when using this unit with XP SP3, drivers would install, but they were not providing USB2.0 speeds, and in fact, slowed other the other USB 2.0 ports on my machine.
I restored my system to SP2 and the drivers worked fine.

Other Thoughts: Drivers at the startech.com were outdated compared to those on the distribution CD.

2 out of 5 eggsMac Pro non-compatible

Pros: This card may work fine for a Windows PC with the PCIe bus, I can't comment on this application.

On the positive side, NewEgg has been prompt and issued RMAs for both cards. I have been pleased with their help with this problem.

Cons: My use for this Card was on a New Macintosh Pro, however after trying two cards, and contacting Startech support both times, I was told that there is a in-compatibility with the NEC chip set used on this card, and the Mac Pro system. So, if you are considering this card for a Mac Pro, don't waste your time. It won't work. Other cards using the NEC chip set probably won't work either.

Other Thoughts: Startech's tech support was good, but on the first card they did not know at the time about the NEC chip set problem. The manual for the card says it is compatible with Macintosh systems, but this is not correct.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Extremely easy install, worked just fine on my Mac Pro

Cons: none that I've found

Other Thoughts: I was surprised that I had no issues installing on the Mac Pro, but the OS found the extra ports, no problem, and all is good.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Adds 4 powered USB 2.0 ports and uses a PCIe x1 slot instead of a precious PCI slot.

Cons: Never worked for me. The drivers thrashed my installation of Windows, so I had to reinstall windows. Kept getting BSODs and for some reason, Windows kept trying to install it, when I already installed the Drivers. Plus, had to get he BIOS of the startech website, as I didn't get a CD.

Other Thoughts: Seems like it works for some, but for me, didn't work at all. I hate to be the one with a Lemon, but be careful when you get this!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great on Vista

Pros: Added it to my brand new Vista Ultimate machine and it works perfectly. My using the internal USB port to connect my ReadyBoost drive. It is out of the way that way.

Cons: Had to update the BIOS on my Intel Bad Axe II motherboard before it would be recognized.
