5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Linux

Pros: Works with CentOS 6.5 (Kernel 2.6.32). Tested with an external USB3 disk drive, works well.

Cons: Power connection required, and this messes up the look of the insides. This went inside a large server chassis (Supermicro 6047), and I needed a Molex extension cable to hook up to a power supply.

Other Thoughts: Uses the NEC/Renesas controller chip.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It worked out the box with Linux (fedora 20) 3.13.6-200; no extra drivers required.

Cons: Would be nice if it had more USB3 ports.

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice to have more ports, especially internal. I purchased this specifically because it has a 20 pin connector. I connected this to Thermaltake AC0031 USB 3.0 Support MS Slot, CF Slot, SD Slot,Extreme Slot, Micro SD Slot, M2 Port Multi-Card Reader (see http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820153002) and it just worked. Boy was it fast. I also connected to an external USB3 hard drive for testing, and that was fast as well. I would buy this again with no hesitation.

3 out of 5 eggsVANTEC 4-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCIe Host Card

Pros: Compact and easy to install.

Cons: Drivers were hard to install with out reading the model number off the card and then selecting from the enormous list of drivers on the CD. There should be a software on the disk that will auto select the correct driver for you

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as it should

Pros: It works great! I selected this card because of the great combo price I received. It was coupled with the VANTEC UGT-CR935 USB 3.0 Multi-Memory Internal Card reader which allowed me to have USB 3.0 in the front as well.

I'm getting USB 3.0 transfer speeds.

Cons: I can't think of any cons.

Other Thoughts: In other thoughts, It's an add on card so I'm struggling to come up with something that will help my fellow PC geeks find something useful in reading my review... Only thing I can think of is adding what system I'm using it in....

Gigabyte X79-UP4 (X79 chipset is the important part here)
I have it plugged into a PCIe x1 slot operating in 2.0 mode.

5 out of 5 eggsBest USB 3.0 PCIe CARD

Pros: Very easy to install, worth the money to upgrade to USB 3.0 on older Motherboard, mine is ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi running Q9770. Put it n 16x PCIe.

Cons: Minor request for future card, is an LED status light of some sort to indicate PCB in active!
Would be nice if it on board power is a SATA molex versus ols type molex.

Other Thoughts: I have tried many USB 3.0 adapter and none seemed to work like this one, Esp. the internal hearder for your Front USB 3.0 ports, Awsome! Transfer rate are up to 99MB/s.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does the job!

Pros: I got this card because I had purchased a new case with 2 USB 3.0 ports, but I did not have an onboard header. I plugged it in, loaded up the drivers, and it works great! I also looked at cards without the external ports, but for the same price, why not get two extra for the rear as well?!

Cons: None so far

3 out of 5 eggsWorks but.....

Pros: Works, well built card.

Cons: Does not achieve speeds over 110mb sec speeds, fluctuates from 80-110 during large data transfers. Haven't tried different drivers cause hardly any out there. I did not dock too many eggs for false speeds due to i am giving card the benefit of doubt due to lack of drivers/firmware out there. Maybe card is just not up to the super-speed 3.0....Also, if you use any rear ports don't count on using front ports. For some reason mine only allows two connections at one time, Even tho 4 ports. ????

Other Thoughts: Too soon to really judge card since the net shows lots of trouble with certain usb 3.0 chips being fakers/lack of support.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes anyone get the fast transfer rate

Pros: I believe this card tries to do a good job. It is built well, good manual and drivers. Read below and be advised I am not bashing this card just the whole platform for now. I got 2 of these cards and they installed fine. I will continuously check back to see if anyone says I am wrong or has a solution.

Cons: I have Googled the heck out of this and is not just this card. If anyone gets more than 70 to 100 Mbps I have not seen it. This USB3.0 is not ready for prime time. A chain is only as strong as the weakest link. http://communities.intel.com/thread/30635 this is just a sample of a what you will find when you search google with , (why can't I get full bandwidth USB3.0) or something similar. Nobody is getting anywhere near the advertised speeds

Other Thoughts: Until something is done I have stopped upgrading my systems to USB3.0. Just a waist of time and money unless you think going from 35 - 70 Mbps is OK which some people are OK with. Esata or just stick with 2.0. Even internal transfer rates don't get USB 3.0 speeds. What? How many years till this starts working properly? OK enough from me but I thought it should be known. I only say what his speeds were, not even close to the socalled fast rates, yet everyone is giving 4 or 5 stars. Everyone should put their speeds and not just say the card works fine.
