5 out of 5 eggsThis provides eSata connections, NOT USB!!

Pros: N/A

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Other reviewers are saying this provides USB ports when this is a card which provides 2x eSATA II Ports.. If you're trying to plug a USB cord into this, you're doing something wrong...

2 out of 5 eggsNot sure about this one

Pros: goes into the slot of my machine. Does add a usb port.

Cons: My experience may not be the same as yours...
1. The device does not "click" into the port - so it pulls back out easily while attached to the usb connector, so I have to be careful. (Lenovo T410)
2. I only have 1 USB3.0 device - a pioneer bdr-xd05b bluray burner - and it won't work with this card. Maybe it needs too much power - but even with the extra USB jumper plugged into the card, and the second usb cable of the drive plugged into my computer - it doesn't work. I have plugged usb2.0 devices into this card, and they operate OK, so I'm not ready to blame this card for the failure to run ALL usb 3.0 devices yet...

Other Thoughts: Like I said, your results may vary. I bought it specifically for running this bluray burner - which it doesn't cooperate with...

5 out of 5 eggsFast and small

Pros: I am annoyed how people that rate themselves a 5 out of 5 tech level can't seem to use an installation disc that comes with their hardware. This device worked perfectly the very first time I installed it and it has become a daily part of my laptop at work. No problems, been using it for 8 months. The USB's are plug and play and so is the card itself once it is installed. It does need a driver first. Read write speed is limited by the expresscard port and motherboard.

Cons: Being a flush design it is sometimes hard to tell when it is pushed in correctly, just practice taking it in and out and it should be fine.

Other Thoughts: People need to figure out what their tech rating really is, this is getting stupid. Yes, you do need the installation disc.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time

Pros: It looks fancy

Cons: Well here's the gig on this card.

First off, I have no clue where the other reviews went for this product. Maybe newegg is having issues, but the other reviews actually told people how to get this card working.

All I can say is install only the drivers on the CD that comesm with it. The ones off their website don't work for x64 windows 7.

I got this thing to work eventually and it works for a usb 3.0 key but nothing else... no hard drives, no peripherals. Tried the usb power cord and it doesn't work.

Also RMA'd this thing twice already and each one has it's own little different issue. I would save your cash.

I'm trying a different manufacturer that hopefully uses a different chip. This one is junk.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Good

Pros: it was a flush mount card which was very good and it took the whole card space so it could'nt move side to side

Cons: in actual use,very poor to don't waste your time buying it.found new hardware never showed up after 3 reboots and shortly after that programs on my laptop quit opening also

Other Thoughts: in theory it sounded great but in practical use i never got it to show up or work in any manner at all
