I bought this Uspeed USB 3.0 PCI-E card from Amazon in order to have the latest and much faster USB on my existing computers. This is a very cost effective and fairly simple way to increase your USB speeds by a factor of 10 over USB 2.0(if you have USB 3.0 capable devices). If you're transferring large files or cloning disks via USB docks this is the way to go.

PROS: It's less expensive than most similar items and works perfectly when installed correctly. Physical installation is simple and obvious - be sure to insert the card fully into the appropriate slot and then attach one of the Molex 4-pin connectors from your power supply.

CONS: I bought three of these for various household computers (different brands and specs) and none of the driver installation disks worked with any of the computers. The Uspeed website (USPEED.CO) is a frustrating mish-mash of broken links, confusing navigation, and missing drivers.

HELPFUL HINTS: Try installing the driver disk and it may work. If not, you can try navigating into the Device Manager in Windows and tell Windows to try and find the driver (apparently works for some, but didn't work for me). Or you can save yourself some grief and go straight to VIA for the driver. What you want is VIA's xhci (extensible host controller interface) USB 3.0 driver. Currently the driver is named VL810 Superspeed USB Hub Controller Firmware 0.89 - Released July 22, 2011. Don't bother trying the Intel xhci driver, it's easier to find but won't work.

UPDATE: The latest update to the driver is now version 0.95. VIA says that this update "Resolved issue with Intel USB 3.0 Host where devices were occasionally not properly re-enumerated after resuming from S3/S4, warm-boot, or cold boot." (I did not have that issue with version 0.

This card adds teriffic USB3 speeds to a computer with one caveat. If you try to operate more than one USB 3 device at a time, it will slow down significantly. If you have a USB 2 device plugged in, the entire card slows down to USB 2 speeds. If you want to run multiple USB 3 devices without any slowdown, you will need a controller card that has a separate controller chip for each channel and a PCI-E 4 or 16 port interface. An example is the RocketU Quad USB 3.0 Card. It is about 4-5 times more expensive as this card.

Uspeed USB 3.0 PCI-E -port 4card WORKS but needs POWER!

Will not work without the power connected. If you only have sata power connectors as provided on newer PC's you will have to buy a SATA Power (15-pin Male) to 4-pin Molex (Male) adapter cable which is NOT INCLUDED.

There are no instructions. You must install the card first, connect the power and then install the software. The card works great.

Quit saying there are no instructions. The instruction are on the back of the box, at the bottom. Here's some help:

1. Plug the card into the motherboard, and also plug a 4-pin (Molex) power plug to the Uspeed board. The Uspeed board needs power. If you don't have a 4-pin Molex connector available from your power supply (unlikely), then you'll have to buy a Y adapter, often called a "twofer."

2. Run the provided tiny CD. If it doesn't start automatically, then go to Explorer and 2click "Setup.exe." Let things proceed to a finish, and done.

In other news, I just wanted some more USB ports, the 3.0 is a bonus for me. I don't even have any 3.0 devices. But the Uspeed card works fine with 2.0, and the wide spacing between ports is another bonus because it allows airflow to USB flash cards. Electronic devices hate heat, and love airflow that dissipates heat.

I saw some comments on the quality of construction. The board itself seems of pretty standard quality to me. As thick as any, and no more flexible than any. It's a small board so maybe it appears weak, but I don't see that it really is.

The 4-pin Molex receptacle is a plastic piece attached to a circuit board, so it obviously is not robust (nor are any). Hold the receptacle, not the board, and wiggle the connection together as gently as you can. "Gently" is not going to be very gentle because Molex plugs tend to run tight, but the idea is to hold the connector itself, try not to stress the joint between the connector and the board. This is so with all circuit board connections.

Don't plug the Molex in backward. Two corners are cut away to indicate correct plug orientation, but it's possible to force--really force--things together backward. This causes smoke.

Size: 2 Ports + 20-pin Connector Verified Purchase
So, I don't usually leave reviews but thought this might be useful to others. I ordered the card this past week, receiving it on Wed 10/10. I could not get the card functioning in Windows 7 64 bit. Device manger saw the card but did not know what it was. The included CD did not appear to have any files on it. (or at least my computer could not read it)

Per another review I tried all the drivers from the VIA website. Whenever I tried to install any of the VIA drivers it could not find any relevant hardware in my machine. I also downloaded the driver from the uSpeed website but that was just the VIA driver as well and had the same issue.

I decided to swap over to my test install of Windows 8. It turns out Windows 8 includes a driver for this card and it worked right away. From the Win8 device manager I was able to see the card identified as "Fresco Logic xHCI FL1100 series".

There is a Fresco website but they sell OEM only and don't provide drivers that I could find. I did a search and found two driver files for the Fresco Logic chip. One, from HP support, did not work for me. The other from softpedia did work. If I do a Google search for "fresco logic usb 3.0 driver" the softpedia link is the 4th result for me. The driver version is 3.5.36. The file is about 6 Megabytes. After loading that driver everything is working great on Win 7 64 bit.

I'm seeing 90MB/s reads and 25MB/s writes to a USB3 stick plugged into this.

Hope this helps a bit!
