Works...for a while. 7/16/2014 7:50:20 AM

Pros: All the benefits of USB 3.0, hot swapping and fast transfers.

Cons: This card actually worked as advertised for a little over a year until I started getting USB voltage warning messages. Then, I got BSOD's after only 5 minutes of computer operation. Once I removed the card, all was fine again, albeit back at a USB 2.0 only machine.

Not good. 1/4/2014 12:15:01 PM

Pros: None

Cons: This was bent and could not be fixed out of the undamaged box. I don't need it, it was a free add on for the HP Mini server I got, but you would think they could do a better job.

Overall Review: This should be removed from the newegg website.

These cards are excellent, and great sale price $4.99 11/13/2013 6:39:49 AM

Pros: I have read all the reviews, and there is some serious laziness and serious overrating of technical skills evident. This controller installed easily. I then booted into DOS(see comments), upgraded the firmware, used latest drivers from "station drivers", and the performance tests I ran returned excellent results. Transfer speeds using 64gb Imation USB 3.0 flash drive exceeded 180mbs. Copying a 700mb .mkv movie took about 2 seconds.

Cons: absolutely none.

I have a question that is a request, would users please stop using the CD that is included with the products? Anything contained on them is outdated. I haven't used one in 20 years.

Overall Review: This controller has the Asmedia ASM1042 chipset. Before the item was delivered, I had already downloaded the firmware and drivers from HighPoints support site. I then downloaded the latest drivers and firmware from "Station Drivers", which were updates from the HighPoint versions. You MUST do the firmware update in DOS, and it is a very simple task. Get a program called "Rufus" , to make a FreeDOS bootable USB flash drive, it takes less than a minute. The controller did NOT like the firmware I got from SD, so I flashed back to the latest from HP(HighPoint), which still was an upgrade from the stock firmware. The latest drivers were on SD, and work perfect on my Windows 8 Enterprise x64. The performance of this controller is absolutely outstanding !!!!!!!!!!!!! And all of this for and amazing $4.99.
