Silverstone PCI Express Card w/ USB 3.0 Internal Connector and USB3.0 Front IO ports - BlackModel SST-EC03B-P
  • PCI Express to USB Card
  • USB 3.0
  • USB 3.0(5Gbit/s), USB 2.0(480Mbit/s), USB 1.1(12Mbit/s) Data Transfer Rate
  • $34.99
  • $29.99 after $5.00 rebate
  • $1.99 Shipping (restrictions apply)

Pros:

The combination of the PCIe card and the front panel sockets is a great adaption to upgrade to USB 3.0. The driver disc was helpful also. But see my "Cons".

Cons:

As the title implies, the directions suck. First problem, the "Assembly Steps" can only be found on the driver disc; second problem, the 4th step of the "Assembly Instructions" (install the "sockets" on the drive adapter plate ....) should be first (there's no way to do it with the adapter plate installed in your case); third problem, nothing tells you it won't work without the 5 volt power plugged in; and last of all (and I may be showing my ignorance here) nothing works if the drivers aren't installed before the card is installed. I even had to use the "Repair Windows 7" utility on the Windows 7 Installation Disc.

Other Thoughts:

After going through all the "revised steps" resulting from the problems I encountered in the Cons the card and sockets work great and I now don't have to lift my keyboard drawer over USB drives sticking out of the top of my full size tower case.
