5 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT HOST CARD

Pros: iNSTALLED WITH ZERO TROUBLE... ran cd with driver and xp pro 32 recognized immediately. worked perfectly with my lexar multi card reader... heavenly combo.

Cons: TOTAL FAILURE WITH TRANSCEND 4 PORT HUB. WAS NOT RECOGNIZED AND THE 'DRIVERS' SENT TOOK OUT BOTH USB FUNCTIONS ON MY HP XW8400 WORKSTATION. BLAME THAT ON THE TRANNSCEND HUB.

Other Thoughts: MAYBE.. if transcend gets it together and sends REAL driver for their product [cant understand why its NOT pnp in 2014...] but with the lexar media card reader its wonderful.. and if the hub ever works will have an ideal system. waiting on transcend to respond.

4 out of 5 eggsHalf Hearted Effort

Pros: USB 3.0 slim card

Cons: Power cord too short

Other Thoughts: I have two regular size computers that this would not work on. The power cord is too short. I had to stop and go buy an extension cable. What did they save, maybe a nickel per unit? Power cord needs to be at least four inches longer.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great to add USB 3.0 capabilities to older machines.

Pros: Hardware.

Cons: Software.
Documentation.

Other Thoughts: The hardware works as expected, but the software that comes with it is crude. Also, the documentation is lacking, and the Vantec website doesn't have the updated firmware for this product that was released in November of 2013 (it is currently the end of February of 2014). The product uses the VIA VL800 chipset which isn't listed in the documentation (needed to take it back out and look at the chipset to find this information out when looking for updated firmware). The updated firmware can be found on the VIA website (the chip manufacturer), not on the Vantec website (the product manufacturer). It seems so simple to update your website with current firmware and not make your customers track it down.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent quality card

Pros: I purchased one of these because I wanted additional USB 3.0 ports and this has 4 of them (one is internal). Additionally, I trust the Vantec name so I took a chance with this. I haven't been disappointed in the least. After I decided that this is a good card I purchased a second and it's performed as well as the first one. I've used these hard and I'm completely satisfied with them. This card is a great deal, especially if you can get it on sale.

Cons: None thus far

Other Thoughts: I'm running Windows 7 Professional x64 and the drivers installed easily and without issue, as they should.

1 out of 5 eggsCollateral Damage

Pros: Works well but there may be an issue. See cons

Cons: Shortly after installing this card, I noticed that the PC would shut down within 2 hours of operation. Could not restart PC. After considerable troubleshooting, including CMOS battery replacement. I then removed this card. Shutdowns ceased to occur. Anyone else had this problem?

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Product

Pros: The ability to plug in 4 additional USB 3.0 devices.
Easy to install and use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: At first I could not get this to recognize my devices but after looking at it again I realized I didn't plug in the 4 pin power connector all the way. If you have the same issues try pushing it in just a little more. I thought mine was in but it wasn't.
