1 out of 5 eggsStopped working after a month

Pros: It was pretty fast while it worked

Cons: Failed and now will not install any driver on Windows 7

Other Thoughts: Apparently there's some sort of firmware problem with this chipset. I am a PC technician and I could not find a way to flash the firmware and get it working. Would not recommend.

1 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0

Pros: It was cheap. Worked for a little while. Like 4 months. Now it gives me code 10, Device can't start.

Cons: Even when it worked it didn't work with all devices. I couldn't get a USB flash drive to work with it. I downloaded the latest drivers when I installed it. Firmware 2.0.2.4 and driver 3.0.23.0. Lastly when trying to uninstall the driver it only repairs it. I went to the Control Panel to uninstall it. So I would pay more and get a better quality USB 3.0 card. Also the driver page is in a foreign language. So you better know what card you have and the model number of it. Newegg gives this away at times. Even then it is not a good deal.

Other Thoughts: For the price you pay it is not worth sending this back. It would cost more than what it cost. If you are going to buy a USB 3.0 card, don't get this one.

5 out of 5 eggsMediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0

Pros: I read some comments about install problems, so I dug down into the included CD and found a zip file with the install files, which I extracted. I then ran the install file from there, everything ran tickety-boo. Required SATA power. The driver is 3.0.20.0.

Whole point is that I need to download RAW files from SD card, this is the cheap ticket. Happy.

Cons: with modicum of effort to read about potential pitfalls, I had none

5 out of 5 eggsFree

Pros: Free.

Cons: Doesn't work with Linux, but it was free, and having a couple extra USB ports even at 2.0 is a plus.

Other Thoughts: Did I mention it was free?

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it needs to when you get it going.

Pros: Works well once you get it working. Getting transfer rates of GB sized files at 100-150MB/s, smaller 3-5MB files, ~40-60MB/s. All in all not too shabby. This card came free as a promo with the mediasonic pro raid box i ordered so cant really beat the price.

Cons: Running a Win7 system and drivers provided on disk would not install at first. The autorun install would give an installer error. This is a bogus error and I found a workaround. Their are binary drivers on the disk. Load those first and then update with the Win7 drivers on the disk. Worked for me. I took one egg because of the bit of strife the driver provided me, but seems to be holding up fine. Being a promo "cheap" card you have to expect their to be a hiccup or two.

1 out of 5 eggsmediasonic usb 3.0 card

Pros: None

Cons: Should have read reviews. Garbage. Does not support low profile as I had to cut the mounting bracket all the way to the circuit board to make it fit. Next, it messed up the running of my machine followint their instuctions. I believe you need to install software first then the card, not the way they instruct. If you look at the pictures on Newegg, there 2 different cards shown. Mine required a sata cable to power it and isn't supplied. Duh? What should have been a 5-10 minute install, took 3 hours of undoing the damage to my printer software. NotNeweggs fault. Throwing away as it would cost more to return.
