1 out of 5 eggsSimply stated...do NOT buy!

Pros: None

Cons: Simply stated...do NOT buy! One star because its a required field.

I have a Win 7 SP1 install on an Intel-based PC. The card was received WITHOUT the normal NewEgg paperwork - bad omen. I installed the card, including attaching a spare 4-pin Molex.

When I went to install the driver the install errored out, "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)".

I went to the driver site noted in the "User's Manual" that came with the card and downloaded and appeared to install the driver provided, dated 6/28/2013 (DL-0313102). Restarted and went into Device Manager...yellow triangle and the same error message.. Uninstalled and tried again - same result.

I then went to the Koutech site downloaded and appeared to install the only driver they had (dated 3/2012). Same problem.

I will now "gently" remove the card from the system and return it to NewEgg for refund, left to run my nice new external USB 3.0 HDD off a USB 2.0 port.

Seriously urinated!

Other Thoughts: Now who do I trust to have a card - and drivers - that work?

5 out of 5 eggsNO DRAMA

Pros: Windows 8 recognized it right away without using the CD. But I still went to their website to download their latest driver.

Cons: NONE YET

Other Thoughts: Newegg is the best. I paid for and received the very next day business. Thanks

3 out of 5 eggsEasy install, great speed, but couldn't handle two drives.

Pros: Easy install, just popped it in, powered up, threw in the CD, installed drivers, and restarted.

Got 100 MB/S transfer speeds when moving from my internal HD to a 3.0 USB Toshiba 1.5TB and a 3.0 USB WD 500 GB external drive (at different times).

Three outside and one inside 3.0 USB ports on a small card is a good deal for older systems.

I think the internal port has some potential in the future in regards to internal upgrades.

Cons: When trying to use two 3.0 USB external drives at the same time (one was copying files from the mobo, the other was having files downloaded to them), the card would provide fast transfer speeds but would crash after a minute or so of continuous use.

The only remedy I could find would be to not tax the card or just use one drive at a time through the card.

Another smaller, more specific con to my system was having to rearrange my PCI X cards due to the 4 pin power cable that was required.

Other Thoughts: Could drive if you want to get the most out of your 3.0 external drives, cheap price, and easy install.

3 out of 5 eggsYou might need a power cable adapter

Pros: I plugged it in to a PCI-Express slot, turned on the computer, and then installed the drivers using the setup program. It seemed to install easily, but I am not sure it works yet.

Cons: This card apparently needs power from a Molex plug to work. My computer only has SATA power connectors. I had to order a SATA to LP4 Molex Power Adapter Cable.

Other Thoughts: I would think that computers that have PCI-Express are likely to have SATA power cables. They should really include an adapter cable with this board.
