I ordered this SIIG USB 3.0 ExpressCard to add an USB 3.0 port to my Dell Latitude E6320 laptop. I have a USB 3.0 external hard drive as well a USB 3.0 flash drive that I use for backup and transferring files on a daily basis.

This SIIG USB 3.0 ExpressCard is the third one that I have tried. The other two were other brands and both had connection issues. I've been using this card for about a week, almost every day and I've not encounter and issues or problems as of yet.

Couple of points worth mentioning:

-Speed / Performance wise, this card is the average of 30% to 35% slower than a native USB 3.0 ports and compared to the native USB 2.0 ports on my laptop this USB 3.0 card is about 3 to 4 times faster. I expected this since I'm using USB 3.0 through an ExpressCard which provides less bandwidth compared to a native USB 3.0 port. I used a Corsair Flash Voyager GT USB 3.0 64GB Drive and Crystal Disk Mark 3.0.1 to do a performance test on my laptop. I have 8.0 GB of RAM, OCZ Vertex 4.0 256GB SSD and Windows 7 Professional w/ SP1 64-bit on my machine and during the test my A/C Adapter was plugged in. Here are the results:

With Native USB 2.0 Port:

Seq Read: 33.85 MB/s Seq Write: 28.88 MB/s
512K Read: 33.43 MB/s 512K Write: 4.517 MB/s
4K Read: 7.014 MB/s 4K Write: 0.040 MB/s
4K QD32 Read: 8.187 MB/s 4K QD32 Write: 0.039 MB/s

With SIIG USB 3.0 ExpressCard (without the external USB power cord):

Seq Read: 146.6 MB/s Seq Write: 66.50 MB/s
512K Read: 138.3 MB/s 512K Write: 3.015 MB/s
4K Read: 15.71 MB/s 4K Write: 0.036 MB/s
4K QD32 Read: 15.93 MB/s 4K QD32 Write: 0.036 MB/s

On a practical level test, copying 25GB worth of files (word documents, excel files, PDFs, pictures, MP3s and etc.

I bought this to increase the speed between my Dell laptop (USB 2 only) and my new 2TB USB3 Seagate desktop backup drive (self powered). Although the installation went smoothly, for some reason the drivers did not immediately show up in the Device Manager as described in the "manual". This led me to believe the install had failed for awhile. Eventually they appeared after removing and re-inserting the card a couple of times.

At first I did not connect the included USB2 power connection to another USB port since the manual stated it was not necessary for self-powered devices. However I could not get it to connect to the Seagate. Frustrated by this, I connected the included power cable at which point the Seagate was recognized and I was in business.

As for speed, I cannot comment yet. My backups happen on Sunday so I will know better then. As others have said, you need to hold the card in place when inserting or removing the USB connector or risk pulling the Expresscard from its socket.

Overall, this appears as a quality unit and so far I can recommend it.

Windows 7 picked the card right up, no need for loading the driver as it works perfectly with the one on line.

A+ card after trying two others this one is the one to go with in a Dell laptop
