Pros:

Provides much needed USB3 on older motherboards and laptops that didn't ship with USB3 ports out of the box. Newer OSes don't need a driver; newer BIOSes even see the card out of the box.

Cons:

For lack of a <$1 steel bracket, I had to spend an additional $10 getting a USB3 bracket (the KINGWIN KW-PCI2USB3, if you're wondering) just to render it usable. The ports are too small to fit into a 9-pin serial or 15-pin VGA header. Out of curiosity, I checked the front headers on six different cases, and it didn't fit a single one. So I'm not sure what this was designed for.

The orientation of the power socket is terrible. On mini-ITX boards, this either blocks a port, or is up against something extremely tightly, like RAM or the heatsink. Simply having the power port pointing up would have solved that problem. Really unfortunate.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear that the device was not up to your expectations.

The lack of a bracket allows the USB ports flexibility in positiong for other devices.

The power socket was placed in an ideal location for installation into laptop systems.

Please note that this card was designed for laptops which lacked USB 3.0 support. Unlike most desktop systems which come equipped with USB 3.0 capabilities.

For any other help please contact Syba support.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.
