5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very Easy install, Drivers were not needed as my Asus P6X58 had USB 3.0 support and windows 7 found it. Bought this card because the MB did not have 20 pin support. Attached 2 USB 3.0 portable HD which receive power from the port worked flawlessly as expected

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for DH67 Intel boards

Pros: Works with no device driver drama.

Cons: Someone should tell Koutech that "PEU" has a humorously negative connotation, but only for native English speakers.

Other Thoughts: I am the same person who wrote the "Really Koul-tech" review before (with a handle of "two-PC man"; I must have been drunk when I thought that one up). I wanted to add a few thoughts.

I have Intel motherboards (DH67CL and DH67BL) which already have the same Renesas/NEC UPD720200 chipset as the Koutech PEU235. So all I have to do is install the card and reboot and Windows will find the driver because it is already installed because of the Intel on-board chip.

But there is a possible problem with device drivers. Koutech offers the 2.1.32.0 version of the Renesas driver on its website (I never looked at the one on the cdrom). However, Intel's DH67 boards will not allow the use of that driver; they want to use 2.1.28.0 only. If you are building a system with an Intel board with that chipset, use the 2.1.28.0 driver, not the newer Koutech one. Everything will still run okay.

If your board does not have the Renesas/NEC UPD720200 chipset, ignore the above paragraph and use the newer driver.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Bought this product to add usb 3.0 to the front of my newly bought case and that is exactly what its does. Drivers included with product worked great with windows 7 tested speeds on usb 3.0 device and way faster that 2.0 completely satisfied with this device.

Cons: Only reason I gave it 4 eggs instead of 5 is the connection point is very flimsy, Had to zip tie the cord so it would not fall out of the connection point.

2 out of 5 eggsIt did it's job but messed with other devices

Pros: The card did it's job. I plugged it in and installed the drivers that came with it. The card let my usb 3.0 header in the front of my computer work.

Cons: The problem i had with this device led me to not use it. I had recently bought a usb wireless adapter for the computer. After I installed the driver for this device the wireless adapter stopped working upon restarting the computer. The wireless adapter was plugged directly into the motherboard too which led me to wonder why this would interfere. I needed the internet so i just took it out. So overall the card worked but the compatibility led me to not use it.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Installation is easy enough. However...

Cons: ...Did not provide USB 3.0 service to attached port.

Other Thoughts: As an earlier reviewer mentioned no matter how many times I tried I could not get the card to provide 3.0 service to the attached port. I attempted drivers from the included disk as well as downloading 2 drivers from the manufacturers website. I made several attempts with each to no avail. Each time I plugged in a flash drive I got the popup stating I needed to attach the drive to a 3.0 port for proper speeds. Plugged the drive into the rear-mounted MB 3.0 ports and the drive functioned normally. It was just a "no go".

I am in the process of my first-ever Newegg RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Installation is easy. Driver disk contains all of the drivers as someone else mentioned. So be sure to use the correct driver. Very small card that works well.

Cons: Not really a con, but because the card is so short, I had to rerun the power cabling within my case (CM storm trooper)to get power to the card. My own fault there for not planning accordingly and wanting all the cabling hidden. If it was a full sized card, I wouldn't have had a problem.

Other Thoughts: I wish pcie slots provided enough power to run these cards, but they don't.
