4 out of 5 eggs very good, not perfect 04/04/2012

This review is from: SIIG USB 3.0 4-Port PCIe i/e Model JU-P40212-S1

Pros:

Good build quality. No issues with physical install - everything lined right up. Driver installed without issue (downloaded updated "xHCI Driver v1.12.18" from TI). Using this for external backup disks. Backup speed jumped from about 15-20MB/s to 60-70MB/s.

Cons:

At install time, VMWare workstation 8.0 does not support this USB3 chipset so I have to add the disks as "physical disks" which is more of a hassle than attaching/detaching a USB storage device.
The connectors on the back are spaced very tightly, I ran into issues with cables having slightly overmolded connectors.
Only 1st and 2nd external connector work with my Rosewill RX358 enclosure, whereas all 3 external connectors work with e.g. Transcend USB3 thumb drive.

Other Thoughts:

It gave me what I needed - speed-up of my backups.
