5.0 out of 5 stars OK with Linux, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TeckNet USB 3.0 PCI Express Interface USB 3.0 Dual Expansion Card (Electronics)
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.
