This review is from: Desktop 3 Port USB 3.0 20 Pin Power ESATA PCI Express Adapter Controller Card
Pros: I bought this because my case had a USB3 port on top with a cable terminated with a 20 pin connector, but I didn't have a matching set of pins for the connector on motherboard. I'm running Win8.1 and Linux Mint 17. Windows supplied the necessary drivers and Linux Mint had no problem with the card so I didn't even need the supplied CD. As others state, there is no manual on the CD and no indication as to which set of drivers on the CD belong with the card you receive... didn't matter though, 'cause I didn't need the CD for drivers.
Cons: the CD that came with the card was not helpful to me, but didn't take off any eggs because the cards works just fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: SSD failed after a few months. Went to Kingston's RMA process and got the best response I have ever gotten on returning a product. 24 hour email response and then talked with an actual person when I called Customer Service. Took less than a week for a full turn-around of a new SSD.

Pros: fast load of Win8.1 and Linux Mint dual boot on UEFI ASUS M5A97 LE R 2.0 motherboard
Cons: died after 3 months... no pre-failure indications... just disappeared from drives available in file explorer and from UEFI control panel on a restart...
Other Thoughts: haven't tried Kingston return process yet... will update review after seeing how tough it is to get it repaired/replaced by Kingston under warrantyREAD FULL REVIEW
