Easy setup Win10 11/4/2019 10:07:24 AM

Pros: Windows found it right away. After reading reviews I thought I'd have to monkey with it but no. Installed CD driver and all good.

Cons: none

Overall Review: This was a solution to using an Occulus Rift S. My ASRock 990FX Extreme 4 motherboard has plenty of 3.0 ports but none would operate the VR set. I saw the extra 12v power connector on this and thought maybe juice was the issue. I was correct. Occulus setup immediately continued with setup when I applied the 12v power to this card!
Very happy with this card and the price is good.

3.0 USB - PCIe Card by Rosewill 7/9/2018 6:40:00 PM

Pros: The card works excellent. i installed a flash drive into the port and it responded in a flash. I would recommend this card.

Cons: The only thing missing is the front 3.0 usb 19 pin header, but I knew that when I purchased it.
The customer's case did not support a 3.0 usb, so no big deal.

Overall Review: The card ships with a cd, it includes the drivers.

No correct drivers on CD 3/7/2017 2:21:27 PM

Pros: Have been slowly updating some of my computers to handle USB 3.0. Eventually............................it worked.

Cons: Have this card and the Mailiya 3.0 card. The Mailiya card was super easy to install even with the baby cd. The Rosewill instructions said very clearly " Type d:\RC-505\Setup.exeCD had every driver EXCEPT the RC-505. Go figure; and it was $5 more expensive!!! Had to go to the website ! No more Roseville.

Overall Review: How tough can they make upgrading a simple $20 card ?
