Bought one of these just before Xmas. Fitting was easy but the drivers were totally unstable on my Win7 64bit rig (blue screen of death when drivers loaded). The hardware may be ok but the poor quality drivers, manual & support makes this one to avoid - in my book.

I needed a USB 3.0 card for my external hdd but did not want to pay a lot for it. This is great value, I've done a speed test for you using this card and uploaded it

The card works just fine. I advise fitting the Molex power cable to the card BEFORE installing it.

A driver install disc is supplied - and needed. Just click on setup.exe if it doesn't autorun.

NB - Power cable is not supplied.

I cannot prove that there was a technical issue with this PCI-E card but I can say that after using this for 5 days, two external hard drives and the dongle for my wireless keyboard ALL failed. The only thing they had in common was that they were all connected to this PCI-E card.

Coincidence? I personally doubt it. As soon as the card was removed, the problems stopped. These get good feedback so maybe I got a bad one. Bottom line is that I am MASSIVELY out of pocket.

On Windows, drivers are not found automatically via Windows Update, but they install easily using the companion CD. The card's VIA USB 3 controller is then correctly detected in device manager. Under Linux Mint (equivalently Ubuntu), the USB 3 xhcd_hcd driver module is loaded automatically when the device is detected, so in this case the card just worked. Under Gentoo I simply had to enable xHCD USB 3 support in the kernel configuration (Device Drivers -> USB -> xHCD).

USB 2 and USB 3 devices were successfully detected when plugged into the hub. Unfortunately the only available USB 3 device I have to hand at the moment is a flash drive which will has max read 60MB/s and max write 30MB/s. Therefore I didn't see any noticeable difference between the drive's performance when attached to a USB 2 or 3 port, simply because even the USB2 bus can just about handle this drive's maximum speeds.

Therefore, I can't directly comment it's performance for USB 3. However, what I can say is this: PCI Express 2.0 x1, according to Wikipedia, has a bandwidth of 4GBps. Now, each USB 3 port is supposed to support 5GBps. Obviously we don't actually expect all our USB 3 devices to run at 5GBps, but there are four ports on the card. My point therefore, is that if you have four fast USB 3 devices attached, all sharing the PCI-E bandwidth, you can't hope for more than 1GBps each, (125MB/s), a fifth of USB3's claimed 5GBps. Therefore, if you're buying a PCI-E 2.0 x1 USB 3 card, maybe it makes more sense to get one with only two ports. This is what lost the product a star, but given the low price, I am still happy with my purchase: even if I can't get full USB 3 speeds on all the ports, I have still added four new fast USB ports at relatively low cost.

Hardware installation is simple. However, I can't get it work under Windows Vista 32-bit. Right away, the driver installation crashed. I tried several more times, same result. After disabling almost everything not necessary to be running on my PC and a series of manual uninstalls of whatever was installed by running setup.exe the first time and reboots, I got the drivers manually installed from the device manager by simply navigating to the driver location on the CD. However, it still doesn't work...none of the four ports will recognize my USB 3.0 external drive, not even in USB 2.0 mode. I've also tried two different sources of power through the molex connector on the card, even two different cables, but with the same result. Plugging the same drive, using the same cable, into any of my other USB 2.0 ports works fine. Additionally, when plugging the drive into any of the four ports, sometimes the light on the drive lights up blue, sometimes green. I'm assuming blue should mean USB 3.0, but regardless of the light color, the drive is simply not recognized by Windows. If the card/drivers are not compatible with certain motherboard chipsets (as I suspect), this should be documented somewhere.....which it is not. My motherboard is Asus Rampage Formula with Intel X48 chipset. Regardless of the other mostly positive reviews here, since it doesn't work for me and there are no incompatibility warnings, I have no choice but give it only one star. I'll update this review if I find out anything new.
