5 out of 5 eggsA Fantastic Speed Boost !

Pros: A very, very simple install--takes about five minutes. A driver disk is included but you can also download drivers (which I did NOT do). Windows 7 reported that the drivers that came supplied on the Disk were the newest drivers available. A USB3.0 cable is included and was NOT too short for me to reach where I needed (it's about 3 feet long). Most definitely worth the small investment.

Cons: No cons, only beware that a four pin Molex connector is located on the unit and needs to be connected to your Power supply. If your supply cables are short than you MAY need an extension. Mine was long enough but to route the cable and make it as neat and hidden as possible, I used an extension cable. Not a problem, though.

Other Thoughts: I have been using Norton Ghost to do complete backup System images through a USB2.0 connection. The USB2.0 backups would take over two hours to complete, writing to a standard 7200 rpm HDD. I did a complete system image to the exact same HDD with the USB3.0, and at almost 100 Mbps, the backup took about 35 minutes. Definitely a tremendous speed boost, but could be much faster with a Generation II Motherboard. My board is an Asus Maximus II Formula which is now about 18 months old and is NOT Generation II. With a newer board, this card would really scream! So, basically this card tripled my USB transfer speeds. This card will work on older boards to allow the use of the newest USB3.0 Technology without having to buy a new Motherboard. I am very, very happy with this card!
