2 out of 5 eggsPoor Description

Pros: Free shipping

Cons: Item is pictured with a molex power connector, mine came with a 4 pin connector similar to what I'd expect on a CPU fan. When I attempted to install, either the card would line up with my PCIe port, or the bracket would line up in the slot -- not both at the same time. Had to bend the bracket a bit to get it to fit properly. I've never had to do that with any other I/O card.

Other Thoughts: Find something else for the money. Thanks to other reviews, I was able to find the correct driver on the CD so it appears to work for now. I haven't had a chance yet to find out if it'll power my external hard drive yet or not. Not worth the hassle to return to Newegg for the cost of return shipping.

3 out of 5 eggsDriver Details

Pros: was cheap. it works.

Cons: Kind of annoying getting it installed. CD that came with it didnt really work. But i got it to work finally. I didnt buy it here but i did have a little bit of trouble getting the thing to install. Well what you do is go to masscools website and you will see a drop down menu at the top and it will say add on card and then pci express I/O control card. you will see a listing of cards. pick the one that says pce-u301 and click "more detail" you will then see under the picture of the card saying downloads. click that and you will see a link. just copy and paste it into your browser. after that unzip it and go to the EXE folder and it will have a setup. click that and it will install for you and your ready to go.

3 out of 5 eggsHow to find the driver.

Pros: inexpensive.

Cons: No low profile bracket. Poor description. Manufacturer webside does not offer the driver, nor any support.

Other Thoughts: Included CD contains four folders with names not related to the model number of the adapter. In order to select proper driver one must read description on the card's main IC.
In my case it is 720200. Many owners on the web can not relate it and claim no driver with the product.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Driver!

Pros: Didn't fry my motherboard when I plugged it in.

Cons: No online driver support. Manufacturer's website has a link for "Downloads" that loads a blank page.
Various websites have reviews stating that Masscool doesn't respond to email other comments confirm that the blank downloads page has been this way for an unreasonable length of time.

I cannot get this card to respond to Windows 7 with latest updates, 2008 R2 Server, Ubuntu 10.04, Debian Squeeze, Knoppix 6.7.1, or Backtrack 5 R1 in any way. Hopefully a driver will be released soon.

Other Thoughts: Bought this on black friday, what a silly way to splurge.
