1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work, no support

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work at all. System won't boot!

Other Thoughts: Bought this card for a WHS 2011 machine that I planned to upgrade to Win8.1. The system wouldn't boot with the card installed. I updated the BIOS on the mobo, but no change. Installed Windows 8.1 and it still won't boot unless I remove the card. No support from Bytecc.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works as expected in FreeBSD and FreeNAS 9.2 after enabling USB 3 tunable.

It was the least expensive card I could find when I bought it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried it in Windows or Linux.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work

Pros: Low price

Cons: Did not work out of box (purchased at a department store); got to Newegg and read reviews. Decided not to mess with it anymore and wanted to lower rating to help others in future.

Other Thoughts: Going back to store...

3 out of 5 eggsFollow up on previous review

Pros: Works on windows XP

Cons: Won't work on newer opearting systems like Windows 7, 8, etc

Other Thoughts: In my previous review I mentioned how impossible it was to get this card to work at all. Well, I needed at least a functional USB 2 solution so I grabbed this card off the shelf and put it in an old Windows XP machine. The drivers installed and the card actually worked. It only maxed out at 45 MB/s, whereas my Windows 7 and 8 machines will push data at 130 MB/s, but even 45 MB/s beats the 20 MB/s or so it would have been through USB 2 alone.

3 eggs because it did actually work in 1 out of 4 of my machines. -2 eggs because Bytecc doesn't seem to have any kind of support.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful product

Pros: Low profile

Cons: Does not work.

Other Thoughts: My supervisor bought two of these for me. I tried this in a Windows 7 64 bit environment first. The drivers wouldn't work. I had to search the internet to find that this actually had a Renasus chipset, not an NEC chipset. I got the correct drivers and was able to read data at good speeds, but when I tried to write to the drives through this card, it kept dropping the connection. Totally useless if it can't write. I threw them on the shelf. Months later, I put one of them in my new Windows 8 64 bit machine, which has native USB 3 support. Still nothing. There are apparently no stable drivers for this card anywhere.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent card

Pros: I purchased this a year and a half ago and it's performed perfectly since then. I've used it fairly hard and I've had it in 3 PCs so far and installed it on Windows XP Pro 32 and Windows 7 x64 (Pro/Ultimate) with no issues whatsoever.

Cons: None for me other than maybe it only has two USB ports

Other Thoughts: I've had none of the issues with this that some of the other reviewers seem to have had. For me it has installed with essentially no effort and has run at high speeds.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy! Poor device, incompetent setup

Pros: Small and cheap, seems to function one I finally got it going.

Cons: Driver CD does not work! Can't believe they would issue a CD where the autorun file doesn't run the setup correctly! I downloaded drivers from their web site which installed drivers from NEC which also do not work. Finally figured out that installing one driver file (renesas drivers), ;etting the computer blue-screen crash, then running the normal setup worked, and the device seems to function.

Other Thoughts: Never have had such a terrible installation experience. The other USB 3 cards were $30 to $40, and I suspect I will end up buying one of those instead of keeping this one. Windows 7, MSI motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsdon't follow the instructions!

Pros: can be made to work

Cons: Not NEC chip like New Egg claims. RENESAS it seems to be. Do not follow the instructions

Other Thoughts: RENESAS-USB3-Host-Driver-3080-setup must be run vice "setup" as instructions claim

1 out of 5 eggsSpend more money

Pros: Cheap

Cons: READ newtekie1's review. Drivers are bad. Copy all the files on the disk to your computer and execute them from your computer.

Other Thoughts: Read the EULA while your installing the product, then don't buy anything (again) that admits that there will be no support provided for it.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

Pros: None

Cons: Does not install drivers from windows update. Does not install drivers from its own install disk. If you do get the drivers to install from the disk, they are the wrong drivers, and in my case crashed the machine at every boot. Had to remove the card before I could boot and uninstall the bogus drivers.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for the half height feature.
