This card provides two external USB3 ports and also has an internal USB3 header which can be used to connect two further USB3 ports - typically a USB3 card reader or USB3 ports on a new PC case. For maximum performance your motherboard needs a PCIe 2.0 x1 slot though if you connect a USB3 flash drive or hard drive a PCIe 1.0 slot will be fine.

Much faster and more reliable in Windows 7 and 8 than my previous card. But not automatically recognised in windows 7. had to use supplied drivers as Windows update could not find any drivers online. Both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 recognised the card and supplied drivers without any user intervention.

I bought this card as another card from a different manufacturer using a different chipset would often not use all 4 ports the card has if fully utilsed. This card has worked faultless in that respect.

Needed an inexpensive USB 3.0 card for backing up to a USB 3.0 hard drive and didnt want to spend too much. This uses the slightly newer NEC D720201 chipset and installed without needing a driver disk in my Windows 8 PC. Has 2 x USB 3.0 connectors.

Took a while to be delivered as it comes from china or somesuch, but nevertheless a good purchase.

I rehoused my desktop PC in a media PC case but it had no usb 3 connections for the ports on the front of the box. This met that need and provided additional usb 3 ports. Very useful at a cheap price. You have to wait while for it to arrive.

My old PC now has 2X USB3 sockets, via this 20 pin PCi-e card.

Windows 7 installed the drivers, and it works

The board arrived in a padded envelope - not a box. Thus limited protection for the components.
When installed I found that one of the pins of the connector for the cable to the front USB ports was irreparably bent.

I did however, after much searching, find a set of Win7 drivers on the provided CD.

I cannot recommend this supplier, or the product.

Even though it took several weeks to arrive from China, The product insalled without any problems. I bought a new case with USB3 headers on the front, but my mother board had no USB3 pin outs. This card gave me 2X USB3 ports on the back bracket and i was able to connect my front USB3 headers to the 20 pin connector. Would reccomend this product and at a tenna! Where could you go wrong?

Chose the card due to option of low profile slot bracket. Would have paid a bit extra for a supplementary power lead for the molex connector (with option of sata or molex power pick up). Card worked fine and installed OK on Win 7.
