Add 2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports to a computer through a PCI slot. The PCIUSB3S22 2-Port PCI to USB 3.0 Card enables you to connect USB 3.0 peripherals to a PC through a legacy PCI host bus, which doubles the data transfer speeds when used with USB 3.0 peripherals than would be possible with a USB 2.0 host connection - up to 1.3 Gbps (PCI bus limit).

The card features an optional SATA power connection, which enables each port to supply up to 900mA of power to USB 3.0 bus-powered devices.

By supporting a legacy (PCI) host connection, the card adds updated peripheral connectivity, without having to upgrade to a PCIe-equipped motherboard or rely on the backward compatibility of USB 3.0 peripherals.

Guaranteed to provide reliable performance, the PCIUSB3S22 PCI USB 3.0 card is backed by lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good!

Pros: Gives you an extra speed boost to your USB 3.0-ready peripherals.

Cons: Not true USB 3.0 speeds due to the limited bandwidth of PCI-66, especially if it is sharing the PIC-66 bus with other cards.

Other Thoughts: This is like any other attempt to adapt new technology to old systems. It's never truly as good as the new technology on a new system, but it's a MAJOR upgrade for the old system, nonetheless.

Highly recommended for older machines.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Addition to aging server

Pros: Great addition to my aging DELL PowerEdge 2850 server. I added so that my new SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D401TDB Black would run at USB 3.0 speeds. They were a great combination. SUPER FAST backups of the server now.

Cons: Nothing

1 out of 5 eggsUnknown

Pros: Seems like a nicely built card, not flimsy like the cheaper cards. Back bracket was extra stiff and the included half-height card a nice touch.

Cons: Plugged the card in my Asus P8H61-M LE/CSM motherboard and the board would not come alive after power applied. Took the card out and the machine booted as usual, plugged the card back in and the machine would not POST, monitors remaining in sleep. I can't say it was the card causing this but something was not happy with that card installed.

Other Thoughts: Wish it would have worked.

Other Thoughts: Support is hit/miss

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great!

Pros: Installed in older HP server to allow connection of USB 3 external drive. Computer would not boot when in 1st slot, but booted fine in 3rd slot. Driver installed from CD with no problems, and external drive worked well and fast.

Cons: None
