5 out of 5 eggsGood for Antec Sonata Proto case

Pros: Bought an Antec Sonata Proto case w/ front USB 3.0 ports, but my mobo didn't have the required USB3 header. This card provides that connector.

No drivers needed for Linux.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds New CD

Pros: Seems to function as a USB 3.0 port.
Card is very small.

Cons: You can take the CD driver disc & throw it away. The device appeared in the Device Manager but Windows did not recognize any USB device (2.0 or 3.0) plugged into either of the 2 ports.
1-star reduction (see Other thoughts)

Expect speeds to be 1.5 to 2 times that of USB 2.0. Actual speeds are nowhere near the claimed. You will never see 5Gbps on any 3.0 card; just like you never see 480Mbps on 2.0

Other Thoughts: Google "nec usb 3.0 driver download", 1st hit was Intel. Download & installed and it now functions normally. Not a big problem for me, but probably for many others.

The power connection is by miniature Molex, the same as used by a floppy disk drive. Most power supplies will have 2 of these. Most other 3.0 cards will use the larger Molex. I actually bought this one because of the smaller Molex.
