Easily add two USB 3.0 ports to your computer without any available PCI-Express slot. Koutech’s PCI USB 3.0 solution, IO-PU230, provides over twice the performance gain over on-board USB 2.0, and is backward compatible with USB 1.0/1.1/2.0 devices and fully plug-n-play and hot swap compatible. The IO-PU230 is a great way for legacy PC to take advantage of the latest USB 3.0 data transfer technology.
PCI USB 3.0 Solution The Koutech IO-PU230 uses one free PCI slot to provide two USB 3.0 ports, and just comes in 30% slower than the maximum speed it can reach in PCI-Express slots. With over twice the speed than on-board USB 2.0, the IO-PU230 offers an ideal connection for digital cameras, scanners, printers, external CD/DVD/Blu-ray writers, hard disk drives, flash memory drives and etc. (PCI 2.x & 3.x slots will max out at 2.133Gbps. To meet available maximum transfer speed, high quality USB 3.0 cables and devices are required.)
External Power Connector & Low Profile Bracket Included The IO-PU230 has built-in with 4-pin Molex power connector for added power source to better support power hungry bus-powered devices. A low-profile bracket is included for installing in height constrained cases. (Make sure the power is well connected, otherwise you will see a "Power Surge on Hub Port" message error and no 5V bus power in USB ports.)
