5 out of 5 eggsColor me surprised

Pros: Reasonably fast, works in older systems like mine w/o issues, and I've had zero driver problems.

Integrated USB 3.0 speeds are always faster than PCIe add-in cards, but this one is better than most - and I've tried a good half dozen, most introduced driver-related BSODs that led to their yanking.

I had expected that this Renesas card would be similar to other Renesas cards I'd tried before (nonstop BSOD hell), but apparently this one has had a firmware update or uses a better hardware design or has newer drivers, because it's been problem-free.

Cons: I've never heard of Tek Republic before, but if their stuff works... should I really care? I picked it up for under $5 on a sale, at that price I was willing to gamble.

Other Thoughts: If you really want to hold onto your USB 2.0 system, this is a great way to bring a little modern life into it. Soon I'll find out if this card is equally happy when I try to add more USB 3.0 ports to a USB 3.0 system...

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what its supposed to do

Pros: There were lots of bad comments on this board but I thought i'd try it anyway. Had a heck of a time locating the proper drivers online, but once I did, wham, bam, thank you m'am. Really a lot lot faster than 2.0. Didn't know what I'd been missing.

Cons: Hard to find drivers, but can't knock off an egg for that.

Other Thoughts: Works fine.

3 out of 5 eggsTek Republic USB 3 Adapter

Pros: Bought 2 Tek Republic USB 3 adapter card at $9.49 for each card. One is working but another has problem.

Cons: The card was not properly tested for working at Tek Republic. The bad card is thinner than the good one.due to be easy (almost no friction) in/out of the PCIe slot.

Driver is not available with card

Other Thoughts: Submitted the RMA for the bad card, but the cost to ship the bad card back to New Egg is more than the card via the UPS.

Where is the justice?

3 out of 5 eggsDevice Works!

Pros: Installed Quick, Link to site from Newegg was key. Installed my driver for it first and poof up it came. Bought it because the new case had USB 3.0 ports on front but my MB was older and didnt support it

Cons: Only getting 88-100Mbps out of the card. This could be that the MB is older. No issues other then that.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap USB 3.0 card.
Has 3.0 internal header.
Readily available drivers; recently updated Mar 25 2014

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've had no problems with this card after a week or so, and I bought two of them. They were in transit when the other reviewer posted his 1/5. I'm cautiously optimistic and believe he just got a bad unit.

I guess proceed with caution, as of this review it's looking like a 1/3 chance yours could fry stuff.

1 out of 5 eggsSTAY FAR AWAY

Pros: None

Cons: This device killed three of my USB devices just by me plugging them in, including two mice and a keyboard. Both worked fine previous to plugging them into this device, now both systems of mine won't recognize them. Stay as far away from this as you possibly can.
