5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: It is small. It works. Looks well made.

Cons: Requires external power, though that is a limitation of the power coming off the PCIe lane not the card itself.

Other Thoughts: This card is 'mini-PCIe'. It doesn't fit in a regular PCIe port. It is meant for embedded. Please don't blindly buy this and write a lousy review because you didn't look or read before-hand.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great. Easy.

Pros: I bought 5 to use in a product development lab. 100% of these cards worked fine 100% of the time. Note that this is a mini-PCIe and will not fit in a typical PCIe port. If you have a genuine mini-PCIe port, it is a piece of cake.

Cons: Our software guy tried to install the card driver through Win 7's control panel. Doesn't work. No drivers that way. You need to run the executable on the included CD. It has an NEC chip, so use that installer.

Other Thoughts: Just what I needed. Hard to find. Thanks Newegg!

4 out of 5 eggsFYI

Pros: MINI <-- PCI-e to USB 3.0

Works well, when used on a mobo that has this type of slot.

Cons: Needs more descriptive information for potential buyers
I usually only give a review on 5 egg products, or items that need more explantion. in this case, the other two reviews, dont explain why it dosent fit their mobo's

Please research before you purchase

Other Thoughts: This is not intended to be used in a PCI-e x1 slot, please make sure your mobo has the mini PCI-e slot on the board before purchase, otherwise, you will need to purchase a PCI-e x1 to Mini PCI-e adapter.

Asus has a few mobo's with this card slot on them, (can remember off hand model #) other boards that will accept this form factor are some mini atx boards.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit need adapter of some sort

Pros: will fit the USB3.0 cable on HFF computer case 20pin

Cons: doesn't fit on mother board.

Other Thoughts: Looks like you need a mini PCIe to PCIe adapter. I can't seem to find one. This thing is extremely tiny.
