SYBA USB 3.0 4-port PCI-Express x1 Controller Card, VLI VL80x Chip Model SD-PEX20133
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Adds 4 USB 3.0 Super Speed Ports to my PC that only had USB 2.0. Fit well. Installed easily.

Cons: Installation instructions are a bit brief, but accurate and usable. Instructions should specify that one must have a USB 3.0 device and a USB 3.0 cable in order to use SuperSpeed. Otherwise, the port will default back to USB 2.0 transfer speed, as required by the USB 3.0 spec.

Other Thoughts: After a disastrous attempt to install an NEC/Renesas card and drivers, I ordered this card.

This card installs easily, and the supplied drivers installed perfectly on the first attempt. The supplied CD has drivers for a lot of very different cards. The instructions specify exactly which driver to install, so pay attention!

The drivers worked for my Lenovo i5 tower with Win 8 64-
bit.

While the machine will read from my Seagate backup+ at about 27 MB/sec using a USB 2.0 cable, it will transfer at 50-90 MB/sec using a USB 3.0 cable into this new card. This demonstrates that the card is backward compatible to USB 2.0 devices, and how much speed enhancement is available via USB 3.0.

Note that a USB 3.0 cable is required to utilize the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed mode, since these cables provide 5 extra conductors to enable the higher speed.
