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.

5 out of 5 eggsDid the trick

Pros: This device really helped me out. I had a case with 3.0 ports but a mobo without internal connectors for them. Thanks to this card I now have them operational.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Windows 8.1

Pros: Installed today on Asus Desktop (with a motherboard without 20-pin USB 3.0 connector) running Windows 8.1, and it works perfectly with the driver provided on a CD. So, I gained two USB 3.0 ports on the back and made two USB 3.0 ports in the front of a new case functional. Exactly as expected.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I did not test the transfer speed, but it was installed into a PCI-E 2.0 slot and connected to a power supply, so I assume advertised speed. My desktop came with Windows 8 pre-installed, and I upgraded to Windows 8.1 lately.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible product -don't purchase

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: does not work with Win 8.1. On other sites it is documented that this does not work on 8.1. Website drivers are wrong. Works when initially installed then will not operate on reboot. Spent hours trouble shooting this to find it is a known problem that vendor has not addressed ... do not waste YOUR time

Other Thoughts: misleading and does not work on win 8.1. New egg want

3 out of 5 eggsWorks if connected successfully

Pros: Has performed well after tricky installation.

Cons: Pins in 20-pin internal connector are very delicate and connector is a tight fit. Very frustrating trying to properly insert the plug without bending pins -- like the old days of connecting IDE devices. Once connected, card has functioned well. Bought two similar adapter cards (even less expensive) from a different manufacturer -- much easier installation and equally-good performance.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Little Device

Pros: This thing does what it's designed to do. It has been working in a build I made for my mom for about 10 months now.

Cons: The only con I can think of is that the USB 3.0 pin connector for the case'a USB 3.0 cable doesn't seem quite deep enough. It seems as if it's just barely inserted enough to work, but this is probably more of a problem with the USB 3.0 spec, not this specific device.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a build for my mom. I had overlooked the fact that the case I got has only USB 3.0 ports on the front but the motherboard does not have a USB 3.0 pin connector. This item allowed me to hook up the case's USB 3.0 ports to the PCIe slot. It works perfectly.

4 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 Add on

Pros: Quick way to add 2 external and 2 internal USB 3.0 connections to a desktop.
Quick transfer speeds.

Cons: You Have to be careful choosing the correct driver.
Does not always reconize a docking station.

Other Thoughts: I paired this with a Sabrent EC-HDD2 USB 3.0 to SATA Dual Bay External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5 or 3.5in HDD, SSD with Hard Drive Duplicator/Cloner.
You have to plug it into the first port to get it to be recognized.
You have to sometimes turn off and on the docking station to get it to be recognized.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best USB 3.0 chipset

Pros: Don't be scared away by this card's Renesas/NEC controller. It is superb and in some cases works better than Intel's.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My experience with USB 3.0 compatibility issues involves BlackMagic video devices. They do not work well with Intel USB controllers, but work brilliantly with this.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper simple

Pros: Easy peasy installation

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I needed this to upgrade my system to USB 3.0. I added an AFT Pro-77u hub/reader and everything's up-to-speed again.
