1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: Free

Cons: It was recognized in boot up but locked up after Bios looking for driver. loaded drivers and checked Bios and device was there but still locked up system did health check and there was a voltage problem. pulled it out after 6 times using different settings. could be the new board since it only has usb 2, but Pci is the same rev.

Other Thoughts: more for the junk pile

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: Cheap

Cons: If the internal power connector is not connected (6-pin molex) and a device that requires power is plugged in (ie. usb hard drive) the unit will give a "power surge" message and will then permanently fail.

3 out of 5 eggsNever got to use this product...

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: - USB 3.0

Cons: - Updating drivers, disc was useless.
- Waste of money, see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Honestly I "NEVER" had the chance to use this product at all. I bought this item for a three year old desktop at the time because it didn't had any USB 3.0 ports and I was going to get ready to transition from USB 2.0 thumb-drive to 3.0 speeds. I did manage to install and update the drivers through some random website but never had the chance to test it out because I never had any form of USB 3.0 devices like a portable HDD or a USB thumb-drive that was 3.0 capable at the time. Overall I wasted $15 for nothing...

This may be a little of topic and or irrelevant but I ended up building my own PC about three months after I bought this product and well... I have like 8 USB 3.0 ports, which is a lot for my needs since I only have one USB thumb-drive that is 3.0 speed cable...

3 out of 5 eggsIt's okay - Tricky driver issues

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: It is a USB 3.0 card. Hitting peak/burst rates of 73MB/s. Got it with rebate.

Working drivers at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=19880

Cons: Lack of website support.
No low profile bracket.
No documentation for troubleshooting.
Loose power connector
WIndows 8.1 driver didn't seem to function. Need drivers from the Intel website. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=19880

Other Thoughts: I was never able to find Firmware update, but it wasn't necessary.
Win8.1 installed a driver that didn't seem to do anything.
Once I installed the USB drivers from the Intel website, (Renesas USB 3.0) it started complaining about power issues. They eventually stopped, but nothing was being recognized. I touched the power cable and it came to life. The power connector on the card is very loose. I might have to tape it or something.

5 out of 5 eggsEffective, inexpensive

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: It works, it's cheap, it's fast.
Installing from USB 3.0 to SSD is instant compared to spinning discs.

Cons: I haven't benchmarked it, so I don't know how it compares to others. That said, I only entered anything here because it's required.

Other Thoughts: The other USB 3 card I bought died after a week, but this one works over a year later.

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: It was a free gift with my order

Cons: None: DOA with a "blah blah current draw has exceeded sub hub blah blah blah" error upon driver installation.

Other Thoughts: Into file 13 where it belongs. At least it was free.

Can I get an RMA on a free item? :)

1 out of 5 eggsWindows recognizes it, but it just won't work

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: cheap

Cons: Had the same experience as reviewer Michael Q. Card installs fine on Win 7, device manager says it is fine, but no USB device of any type is recognized when it is plugged in. Had to RMA after trying many drivers.
