4 out of 5 eggsworks fine. internal port not so good.

Pros: works great for adding extra ports for the better half's rig.

Cons: honestly a bit disappointed in the card. got it specifically for the internal port to help his my ugly USB network adapter. in doing this it limited the bandwidth to about 5Mbps rather than the 75Mbps it was getting on the external of the same card.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't work

Pros: Was pretty cheap, 7-8 bucks. Seems to have a fairly good success rate.

Cons: Popped it into the motherboard, turned the computer on, and nothing. Isn't detected by my system, so it looks like I'll have to figure out how to return this >.>.

Other Thoughts: Windows 8.1

2 out of 5 eggsNo USB2.0 Driver for XP-64bit

Pros: Easy to install and recognized by hardware without any problems. I bought it for an old P4 and it worked well as USB2.0

Cons: Drivers are only available for 32-bit operating systems. When I upgraded my system to XP-64 bit, the windows driver falls back to USB1.0 driver. There are no drivers for USB2.0 64-bit OS.

Other Thoughts: This card needs an IRQ assigned to the PCI slot in the motherboard, at least that is true for my Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please check the following

1. install the latest chipset drivers for your gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L from Gigabyte webstie.
2. Download all the windows update to your computer from microsoft.

The operating system will use the onboard usb chipset to go ahead and control the USB PCI card if the USB2.0 drivers are not up to date you may experience problem as noted on this review.

Feel free to contact the Rosewill Customer Support team for further assistance at 1-800-575-9885 Monday - Friday 8AM - 5PM PST or via email at techsupport@rosewill.com

1 out of 5 eggsIsn't working with Windows 8

Pros: I don't know - it isn't working

Cons: When I plugged it in to my Windows 8 computer it got "Unknown USB device, invalid device description".

I was sure that I checked it for Widnows 8 compatability, but evidentially not.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please check the following

1. Make sure you have the latest windows update installed (This is a must)
2. Properly seated the card to a PCI slot
3. Recognized under device manager
4. Test on another computer with windows 8 or 7 to verify if card is DOA

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Installed easily enough to add USB 2.0 support to an older desktop. Windows XP found it right away.

Cons: I had to remove the case to install the card? No cons so far.

Other Thoughts: The "internal" port is unused in this setup.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Purchase

Pros: None cause it caused critical error on several of my computers

Cons: I have several older versions of this adapter running several on my computers. They actually look much the same in appearance however when I looked more closely I noticed several differences. I tried this on three different computers running Windows XP Professional. Two of them blue screened with critical errors and one restarted on its on with a critical error. THERE IS NO RETURN FOR THIS PRODUCT TO NEWEGG. I will contact Rosewill and see what their tech has to say. DON'T BUY THIS. Be careful and read the return policy!!

Other Thoughts: This might just be a defective USB Adapter. However, I won't take another chance on Rosewill Products. This is the first Rosewill Product I've had trouble with. I have three Wireless Rosewill Adapters running on other computer and I have an older NEC 4+1 Port USB 2.0 PCI Which is working fine...

Manufacturer Response:
