1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Install it the first day I received it. My mouse lockup after boot up to install driver. Try on another PCIe connector, had the same result.
I contact Startech tech support, all they said was this is new to them.
I just return it for refund.

Cons: This is a little set back. Will not deter me from buying from Newegg in the future.

Other Thoughts: Probability better just replace the MB with USB 3 capability.
