Pros: The main reason I bought this was the price point. Great Black Friday deal, after rebate will have cost me $50. Older tech and specs on the card, like who uses the vga ports anymore?? But my system is a black friday deal from 4 years ago, still on pcie 2.0, so this works just fine. Replaced my 9800gt that died, and gives a noticeable boost over the older card.
I'd give it 5 stars if it was from n v i d i a, this is my first real experience with radeon, other than a few years ago I bought an underpowered card and returned it for the 9800gt.
Anyway, works on pretty high settings in everything I've thrown at it so far. Like Borderlands 2, Defiance, Dead Rising 2, Far Cry 3, Marvel Heroes, No More Room in Hell. Quite a variety of games there. I don't set everything to max, usually keep the anti-alias stuff at 4x, sometimes 8x if I feel frisky.
Hasn't disappointed yet. Quiet and cool enough for me not to notice it, glad I made the purchase.
Cons: It's a Radeon, but, nobody is perfect.
Other Thoughts: Best value for a mid ish range card that will still play good games with a good framerate.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 4-port PCI-Express x1 Controller Card, VLI VL80x Chip Model SD-PEX20133
Pros: It has 4 ports that supposedly supports USB 3.0 and all the speedy goodness that entails.....
Cons: It doesn't recognize anything I plug into it. I'm running Windows 8 64 bit on my 3.5 year old desktop, a quad core with 4 gigs ram. I read the reviews on here, and some people with win8 say it works fine for them, more people with Win8 say it doesn't work for them. The mfg support rep comes on here and offers plenty of suggestions, but we never find out if any of them help or not.
I saw here where one rep says don't let your system install the drivers, do it manually from the disk or download.
Another comment the rep says for Win8, let Windows install the drivers and it will work.
My emails back and forth after buying the card, they told me to use the downloaded drivers, and install the Win7/64 drivers, will work. Sorry, no go with either MS or the VIA drivers.
It's in a PCIe 2.0 slot, tried the OTHER PCIe slot, messed with settings in bios, it has a molex power plug inserted correctly, little green light on the board comes on. The 3 VIA drivers show in device manager. Yet nothing I plug into the card will work. I have tried flash drives, wireless mouse/keyboard transceiver, usb hard drives, nothing on any of them.
Support has given up and says I have a defective card, and should return for replacement to them or to Newegg. I got the card for only $13, I gotta spend another $3 or $4 to ship it to get a replacement that will probably do the same?? I dunno if I want to do that, but if I don't, I toss the card and lose my $13 anyway. What a quandary
I think I saw on their site a card that was the same except a different controller, not VIA. Might try to swap for that, not sure..... just pretty disappointed at this time.....
So warning to Win8 users, it may work, it may not...... depends how much of a gambler you are if you decide to purchase this item or not....
Other Thoughts: Really want it to work, my system is stuck with usb 2.0 ports that seem to kill flash drives, so I thought I'd upgrade to newer and faster ports, but no love....... me sad........READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: In reading the reviews it sounds like a great product, and I am wanting to get it.
However I don't see anyone saying if it works with backtrack and/or if it supports packet injection, for personal security experiments of course....
Cons: not free, no comments on if it works with backtrack or supports packet injectionREAD FULL REVIEW
