ORICO PVU3-502I Monster USB3.0 PCI - Express Card with 5 Rear USB3.0 Ports and 1x Internal USB3.0 20PIN Connector Controller Adapter Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Gives me 5 USB 3.0 ports, plus a header to connect a front panel to the card.

Bought this to connect a USB 3.0 front panel hub to my PC becuase the motherboard lacked the necessary connector and for some reason the USB 3.0 ports on the mobo itself always seem to freeze up the system whenever I tried to access any data. So far, I've had no glitches or freezes of any kind with this card!

Orico was nice enough to contact me via email and explain which driver set to use on their CD that is included with this. The VLI folder is the one you'd need to use for this particular card.

Cons: Most of the documentation is in Chinese. I've only had one issue where the middle USB 3.0 port on the card doesn't work, but the other four seem to function just fine. I haven't been able to figure it out yet, but since I only own 2 USB 3.0 devices, I'm curious if perhaps it functions if the other four ports are in use?

Other Thoughts: The drivers are a little out of date and can be found on the company's website, but other than that, I have no complaints about this card so far. It does what I need and gives me a little more flexibility with USB 3.0 for future needs.

SPARKLE GeForce FX 5200 DirectX 9 SF8834DT256MB 256MB 128-Bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I bought this to breathe life into an older Pentium 4 PC and upgrade it as far as it would go. It was a great deal for the price.

Easy to install and configure. Made the computer a lot smoother visually, given the age of the components.

Cons: The drivers that come with it are outdated, and nVidia isn't updating their drivers much beyond that anymore.

It's been discontinued from Newegg.

Other Thoughts: It's no 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E uber graphics card, but it got the job done for a computer that was originally assembled in 2003.

The card has been in the computer and running for over two years now without a single problem.

5 out of 5 eggs Good things come in small packages 04/19/2013

This review is from: Kingston FCR-MRG2 USB 2.0 microSD / microSDHC Card Reader

Pros: I actually own two of these things and use them constantly with my microSD cards. The SD card stays snugly in the reader, so you don't have to worry about it falling out on you.

Cons: You can't get one for free?

Other Thoughts: Many files have been transferred through these readers and never once have I had a problem with either of my two readers. Thanks, Kingston!
