5 out of 5 eggsEzyPzy...works like a charm

Pros: Plugged it in and as soon as the drivers were installed, I was off to the races.
Couldn't have been easier
Rig is win7 Pro 64-bit...connected to a mediasonic pro box - 4 bay (JBOD)...(4x 3 TB hdds)
Works as advertised

Cons: Almost deducted 1/2 egg cuz of the instructions, but opted to leave it at 5.
The printed instructions said to physically install the card first, then run the software...no problem.
However the instructions on the cd label said to install the drivers first...
No big deal and par for the course re: instructions

1 out of 5 eggsNever worked

Pros: None, never worked. Can't wait to upgrade mobo for native 3.0!

Cons: It never worked when I got it. I gave up on it and just settled for native 2.0 ports for my WD 2tb backup drive. Recently tried to get this card to work again because I want to redo my entire back up (~800GB!!!), but still worthless. Thought maybe they would have released new drivers/firmware by now. Tried their drivers along with the automatic Windows Driver installation, multiple clean installs. No change.

Tried firmware update, error with "Could not find device".

Other Thoughts: EVGA x58 Triple SLi main, Windows 7 Pro 64bit

3 out of 5 eggsGood but not for my setup

Pros: Price, fast shipping, works fine if already in windows.

Cons: Works only with usb 3.0 hub if in windows...for us people with usb 3.0 hubs using wireless mouse/keyboard setups you can forget about being able to wake from sleep with mouse/keyboard or getting into bios before windows loads because this card doesnt power up until going into windows and wont wake from sleep from it.

Other Thoughts: Not returning but will move it to sons pc and buy a mobo with usb 3.0 when I upgrade here soon.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: None.

Cons: It is slower than the 2.0 ports on my PC. Seagate USB 3.0 external drive with the Seagate provided USB 3.0 cable transfers a 3GB file 16% slower (20MB/sec) than my native USB 2.0 ports (24Mb/sec).

Other Thoughts: don't waste your money and labor like I did.

4 out of 5 eggsit works, but

Pros: take some time to install it. USB 3.0 is fast.

Cons: If you connect an USB 3.0 hub in between the card and an USB 3.0 card reader, the PNP will not work. you wouldn't be able to see your card reader. it is weird.
overall, it is work without a hub. so it is okay.

Other Thoughts: maybe in the future, Rosewill can make a driver update, and solve the hub problem. thank.
