5 out of 5 eggsCheap, works.

Pros: • Low, if not lowest, price for such an item
• Minuscule form factor
• Works @ USB 3.0 speed

Cons: • I doubt there will be software updates for future versions of windows

Other Thoughts: Cheap and works.

Will update if needed but generally items such as this are either DOA or work forever so I doubt that will happen.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Benchmarks as you'd expect USB 3.0. Loaded with Windows default drivers and required no special software to get the correct speeds.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Requires additional Molex power connector. I do not use its USB charging feature so I cannot comment on its performance.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Benchmarked using ATTO benchmark in Raid 0 and 1. All performed exactly as one would expect. The "boost" feature with an SSD also works extremly well.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Requires additional power from molex.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Bought this when I needed an USB3 connection for an external backup drive. It worked well. I then upgraded my mobo to one that had USB 3 and didn't install this device. After a bit I noticed that my external drive would be disconnected and I would have to manually reconnect it. After messing with power settings, drivers, etc. I reinstalled this PCI device and I haven't had any issues since. USB 3 tends to shut down devices when their not in use and that's not the case with this card.

Cons: Could be a problem if you don't want your USB 3 devices on all the time

1 out of 5 eggsRosewill USB 3.0

Pros: works well with USB 2.0

Cons: Do not buy this card if you're going to use it on Widow 8.1. Was using it on USB 2.0 external drive but when I got a new USB 3.0 external drive no great speed improvements which was the reason why I bought this piece in the first place. Updated firmware and updated drivers from Rosewill website, no improvement. Emailed technical support and only got an automated reply. Save your money and buy something else.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill USB 3.0 Adapter.

Pros: Work the first time. Installed on an AM2+ Motherboard, which only had PCI-Express X-16 slots available.

Cons: Wish it had an internal USB port. I would have liked to add USB 3.0 ports to the front of the case. However, finding a brand that actually worked was more important.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great for My Needs!

Pros: I bought this for one reason only. My X55 HOTAS needed a powered USB card since it would not work properly with my Sabertooth 990FX v1 mobo. Now the X55 works great.

Cons: I have no clue if this card is worth anything for transferring data. The other reviews seem to say no. However, I don't care. Just needed it for my X55.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Performance

Pros: USB 3.0 when it works.

Cons: I was intending on using this add-on card for my USB 3.0 flash drives, but the card continues to drop offline at random. It is aggressively annoying when attempting to transfer data to the USB flash pen and half way through the transfer the card drops offline. Also, the card does not support booting from a USB device.

There are no Windows 8.1 specific device drivers, nor an updated firmware to resolve these issues.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this addon card to anyone. I suggest spending $10 - $20 more for SYBA or SIIG. Both of which are reliable add-on cards.
