Card arrived promptly and well packaged. Be careful when cutting the tough retail packaging that you don't damage the mini CD hidden within -you'll need this to get started!

The card is quite dainty and fits nicely into your PCI Express slot (the tiny white one). It's a high profile card with a height of 4.2 inches; so don't buy this if you've got a low-profile case. Remember to fit the card with your PC turned off and all power cables removed.

Now there are two aspects of this card which I thought are worth comment; the drivers and the molex power connector on the card.

First, the molex connector. This is the white 4-pin power connector on the side of the card. This needs to be fed from one of the 12v molex cables coming from your PC power supply (which you've already got feeding your DVD drive and hard disks). Some report here that this card works fine without feeding it extra power, and others say it doesn't. My vote on this is that if you want to maintain USB 3 device performance you MUST power the card with a molex cable. To illustrate, when I provide extra power through the molex connector, my Kingston HyperX drive gives a sustained throughput of 135MB/s. If I turn off the computer, remove the molex plug and reboot, the performance goes haywire, surging randomly from anything between 5 and 135MB/s. So whilst the card works without extra power, it obviously struggles.

Next -the drivers. I recommend you upgrade these as soon as possible from the internet. This will prevent the spontaneous disconnection issue that some have reported. Downloading the latest drivers though isn't trivial as the tecknetonline.co.uk website doesn't provide them.

This is a great and inexpensive device to boost your file transfer rates.

Two important things:

1. It doesn't come with a molex splitter as some past reviews state, the product name and description now reflect that change.

2. The newest version, being sold now, *doesn't require* an additional power supply to give full USB3 speeds and power - which is why the molex splitter is no longer included.

This is a very cost effective way to boost the speed of file transfers to and from external drives. A USB 3 capable portable drive I have transfers a 700MB file from it through USB2 at around 35 MB/s. Using USB3 via this card it transferred at a speed of around 100 MB/s. The marketing guff around USB saying 10 times the speed is exactly that: guff, but it performs appreciably faster than version 2 and can save sometimes valuable time.

Microsoft is still behing the curve and doesn't include USB 3 drivers in Windows 7 or via Windows Update (that may change) so you have to install driver software to make the card functional. Interestingly (and uniquely) the mini-CD that came with my card included a driver version NEWER than the one availbale on the internet (at a site the manual gives the link to).

The driver installed flawlessly and without hitch.

For only £9 for this card, which you now only have to plug straight into a PCI express slot to triple or quadruple your speeds (using USB3 devices) it's a no-brainer.

(Thanks to TeckNet for promptly addressing the matter of the splitter and the reviews that mentioned it, the same day I brought it to their attention.)

I've just received this board today and plugged it in to my 2007 vintage Gigabyte Motherboard. Note that the version I received did not come with a molex connection but a SATA style power connector. I connected a USB3 Seagate 2TB external harddisk to it and booted up.
Now I'm a Linux user and tried the card with Ubuntu 12.04LTS, Mint LMDE, Debian 6 (yeah, I know it's old but I like it) and Mint 15 - Mate edition and found that the disk was recognised and available straight away - no problems at all - no drivers required - no command line stuff - nothing - it just worked.
I also tried it with Windows 7 which did not recognise it straight away but went online to get the necessary drivers and failed. However I put the supplied CD in the PC and accessed the drivers as described on the single sheet instructions and this got it working OK.
I see in the other reviews that some find this card slow when using Linux. It's early days for me to comment, but I'll come back and edit this review when I've used the card with both Linux and Windows.
5 stars awarded as it worked as expected and means I can use USB3 peripherals with my ageing PC.

Lets get to the point, I am not sufficiently knowledgeable to write this item's first review and quote technical stuff, not with any meaning or without copying from the items description anyway, but what I can tell you is what arrived and whether it works.
I received a 2 x socket USB 3.0 card as described, a PSU link cable which provides power from the PSU to the card but is a double so you lose nothing, and a driver CD (home made as far as I can tell).

I can also tell you that installing was extremely easy and there were some pretty decent written instructions in the box also.

The USB 3.0 sockets work and I wrote some files to my external drive at speeds of up to 43 Kb/s before I stopped the test, this compares with about 8 to my USB 2.0 so the new USB is definitely quicker.

I have a Medion PC which is about 3 years old if that makes any difference (some reviews of other products said different ages of PC's will make a difference) I had a spare PCI express slot on the mother board so it all went swimmingly.

Oh and the price was low to boot so I am happy indeed.
