This review is from: Raidmax RX-AU324 3.5" Internal 2-port USB3.0 and 2-port USB 2.0 Hub
Pros: Perfect for new mobo in old case: 2xUSB2.0, 2xUSB3.0, fat plugs (top-to-bottom) OK, molex power connector, fits in floppy bay [but observe VERY carefully because there are small mounting lugs which require inserting the whole unit from the FRONT!!]
Cons: The jacks have the bar on the bottom; it should be on the top: a flash drive will be upside down. Wide plugs on many flash memory drives will overlap adjacent jack(s), which is a shame because there is 10mm unused margin on left+right which could increase the three gaps by 6.5mm, making enough clearance for almost all wide flash drives. USB3.0 cable is very stiff.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: VANTEC 4+1 SATA II 300 & PATA PCI-E Combo Model UGT-IS100R
Pros: Works in Fedora Linux.
Cons: My previously-installed WIndows7 system with SATA hard drive failed to boot after I added this card and connected a PATA harddrive. So I could not use the PATA drive under Win7. Instead I used Linux to copy files from the PATA drive to the SATA drive, then removed the PATA drive and booted Win7 successfully.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Compact, low cost.
Cons: Components on card in PCI slot *prevent* cable access for front-panel USB3.0 and may even hinder front-panel USB2.0.READ FULL REVIEW
