3 out of 5 eggsCould have been better

Pros: I bought this to use in a gaming PC. I works the majority of the time.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works as expected. NEC chipset. Inclusion of SATA to Molex power connector.

Cons: Molex power connector (included adapter is a nice touch though). Seems like the price has gone up since I purchased.

Other Thoughts: Works exactly like I expected it to work. Never had any issues with it it a Win 7 environment. Would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this thing

Pros: I've used this thing on two of my old desktops a Dell Dimension E-520 and a CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1086, both running Win7 Ultimate. I've also got a Tek Republic TIU-3000 3.5" Front Panel USB 3.0 2-Port Hub plugged into it and I've had no issues from either of them so far.

All in all I'm very happy with this purchase

Cons: The driver disk that came with it has a BUNCH of drivers for other Vantec equipment on it. The trick is, you have to find the folder/driver with the model number on it to ensure you install the proper driver.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Linux (see cons)

Pros: Is recognized and works in Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid). I have read that this chip works starting from Ubuntu 9.10.

Cons: There's a linux kernel bug which prevents suspend/hibernate. If there is a workaround I haven't found it yet. If I remember right it didn't get fixed until after Ubuntu 12.04. Can't remember which kernel that used. It is fixed if you use a modern kernel.

Other Thoughts: I'm still using 10.04 b/c I prefer gnome 2 and MATE isn't quite working with 14.04 yet (pops up endless error messages). So for now my HTPC is just on 24x7. If you are doing the same as me, you'll have a choice to make.

1 out of 5 eggsdon't waste your time

Pros: worked the first time installing

Cons: stops working after coming out of sleep/hibernate then can't get it to work unless you pull the card out and reseat it

complete garbage don't waste your time...

Other Thoughts: i tried getting an RMA through the manufacturer and what a complete joke.

the guy was more interested in going to lunch than getting me the help i needed.

the email i get back 9 days ago....:

5 out of 5 eggsBusiness in front, party in the rear

Pros: Installed easily with drivers from included disk, to an AMD 790fx-gd70, providing USB 3.0 from two ports in rear.

Installed within Phanteks Luxe case with two USB 3.0 ports in front utilizing the 20 pin internal connector.

Tested with known working USB 3.0 flashdrive, getting excellent read/write transfer speeds in all four ports (powered).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Ten minute installation, for years of USB 3.0 goodness.
