Attention: If devices attached to the express card aren't recognised after a restart of the computer, it is advised to detach and reattach the devices onto another USB port again, so a proper recognition is realised.

If the card doesn’t work properly from the start, you may try out the following steps
Step 1: de- and reattach the devices to be recognised, so the system can try another recognition search
Step 2: Augment with the optional power supply, so an automatic search can be retried
Step 3: Check the PCI-E socket on the main board for possible faults
Step 4: Try out another Desktop PC, if available, to determine the card’s general functionality

I decided to give my thoughts on this product to help you. Yes you.
Since this PCI-E card only runs through the Motherboard, you can't use all ports at once.
Whats worse is that even with only 1 device connected. It's being held back due to lack of power.
If you want full speed USB 3.0, Look for a PCI-E card that lets you connect it to the PSU & Motherboard.

Don't say nobody warned you.
I regret paying for this cheaper version when i could of spent a few £ more and bought the one with a power cable to connect to the PSU

Size Name: 4*USB3.0/ New Release
This item is very easy to fit, simply follow the instructions in the manual if you do not already know how to fit a PCI card. A nice touch was they actually supplied a screw in the box just in case one was needed.

Once fitted in the PC, I switched on and put the CD in the drive and ran the set-up program. This is self explanatory till a screen is reached which asks one to choose between Red or Green card. To be honest I had no idea, and could find no reference to this in the manual. I elected for Green on the assumption that if it was the wrong choice I would be able to uninstall and re-install the correct version later.

The driver installed with no problems and the card works perfectly. Fitting and installation time, including reading the manual was about 15 minutes.

I tested it with four powered external drives and though there was a slight drop in speed moving files from one drive to another, this was not really a problem as it was still so much faster than USB 2.0 ports. I even noticed an increase in data transfer speed when I plugged an old USB 1.0 drive into one of the ports.

I would certainly recommend this card if one needs to expand the USB 3.0 availability on a PC. Just in case anyone is thinking this, an older Motherboard without USB 3.0 support will NOT run this card at USB 3.0 speeds, so you cannot add this card and expect your machine to function as USB 3.0, however it installs ok and seems to function at USB 2.0 speed on a USB 2.0 motherboard.

The Inateck KT4005 4 Port USB 3.0 to PCI-E expansion card is a great way to upgrade your PC to USB 3.0.

***** In the box: *****

The first thing that i noticed, was that the box was green, instead of the usual Inateck black coloured packaging (which i think looks a bit more premium, than the green but as long as the quality of the product is the same as usual, this doesn't really matter at all).

1 x Inateck KT4005 4 Port USB 3.0 PCI-E Card
1 x packet containing securing screws
1 x Driver/Software CD
1 x User Manual
1 x Return/Exhange instructions

***** Installation *****
Installation is quick and easy as expected with such an upgrade.

* Open the chassis and locate the PCI-E slot.
* Slot the PCI-E to USB 3.0 card into the slot and screw it in - note that this version of the card does not need any extra power connections which is a bonus as it makes for better cable management inside the chassis.
* Boot the computer and then install the driver (I chose to go straight to Inateck.com and download the latest driver, but a driver is supplied on CD with the card).

***** Testing *****

Unfortunately my aging motherboard (due to be upgraded in the next couple of months) is only equipped with a PCI-E v1.0 slot, so i knew that i wouldn't be able to take full advantage of the theoretical 5Gbps transfer speeds that the card could possibly manage when using a PCI-E v2.0 slot, but i hoped that the card would offer atleast a small boost in transfer speeds over my current USB 2 connection.

I ran a CrystalDisk Mark test on my Buffalo USB 3.0 MiniStation Slim HDD connected to my usual USB 2 interface - the Sequential Read speed was 37.00 MB/s while the Sequential Write speed was 27.52 MB/s.

Great to finely have a card that don't require me to drag a power cord across half the PC, works well, speed not as fast as the on board USB 3 ports but was not bought for that.
Arrived on time so no complaints nicely done

Did the job. Easy install. Installed this into an older motherboard that did not have USB 3 ports. Now have an external USB 3 WD drive hooked up to it and the data transfer speeds are nice and quick.
