The PEX2MPEX PCI Express to Mini PCI Express Adapter Card enables Mini PCI Express cards (Mini Cards) to be used in a standard PCI Express card slot. These PCIe Mini Cards, which are typically designed for laptops or small form factor ITX computers, can be used normally inside more conventional desktop computers.
The adapter card features a complete PCIe to Mini PCIe pass-through design that eliminates data transfer rate bottlenecks, while the included full and low profile installation brackets makes this adapter card compatible with most computer chassis.

This review is from: StarTech PCI Express to Mini PCI Express Card Adapter Model PEX2MPEX
Pros: Only part I could find on Newegg to host a mini PCIe card.
Cons: You can't slot one of the very common 'half-size' mini PCIe card in this part.
Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this card. Very few desktop motherboards have provision for slotting mini PCIe cards. I had hoped to slot a 'Intel Ultimate N 633ANHMW Ultimate N 633ANHMW Wireless Adapter Mini PCI Express Up to 450Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2'. No joy.
