ASMedia 104x Drivers did install properly from the website so the CD is useless.

Not good for daily plug/unplug use; Always hold the card before removing USB gadgets or the whole card will Pull out easily and Crash the xpress slot.

This expresscard adapter is highly recommended for the following reasons:-

1. USB 3.0 Officially Certified

If you are shopping around for a USB 3.0 card, this is the main reason why you should buy this.

This expresscard contains the Fresco Logic FL1000 USB 3.0 host controller chip. By way of analogy, this is the CPU of the expresscard you are purchasing.

Fresco Logic's FL1000 chip is one of the few chips out there which have met the stringent requirements of USB 3.0 and have been certified to work within USB 3.0 guidelines.

2. Latest Drivers readily available - Works with Windows 7 x64

This package comes with a mini-CD which contains the drivers.

I did some Google research before purchasing this item and so I knew that the mini-CD supplied drivers were out of date. You can safely ignore the mini-CD and keep it as a momento. ;)

The latest drivers as at 30th Mar 2011 are "Version 3.0.116.3" for Windows Xp/Vista/7 32/64bits.
As AMAZON does not allow the posting of http links in product reviews, I'll post the link to the latest driver in the comments below.

After you download the latest driver, double click the program icon to run the decompression program.

Just run either the "FL1000_32bit" or "FL1000_64bit" file for 32Bit or 64Bit Win 7 o/s respectively.

Now insert the expresscard into your laptop slot.

The Fresco Logic USB 3.0 host controller is recognised immediately.

3. Snug Fit

This was the 2nd main reason why I chose this AKE card.

There are many other USB 3.0 expresscards out there which protrude out of the laptop in a rather unsightly manner.

I ordered this because I saw one reviewer who said it worked flawlessly on his MacBook Pro. While this may be true, I can tell you there is NO driver in the package and no instructions telling you where to find the driver. So, if you plan on using this on a Mac... wait for a driver or it won't work at all.

*** UPDATE *** After looking on Amazon for another brand of card to replace this one, I found one from a company called Oyendigital that was $69. It definitely is a superior card in many ways (It's larger so the plugs are easier to add/remove, and it has the ability to add extra power with a Y cable). I then decided I would buy it, but take a chance that they may share the same chipset, so I installed the driver before ordering it.

As it turns out, when I installed the driver... nothing happened, until I rebooted. After the reboot, my USB 3.0 drive (Seagate GoFlex 1.5) popped up and it worked super fast. SO, I ejected it and inserted another device, a Patriot SuperSonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive... NOTHING. So, I rebooted... There it was... and it was not only fast, but it was faster than my internal 7200 RPM drive. In fact, it was TWICE as fast as my internal drive. This flash drive was giving me reads at 210 MB/s and writes at 130 MB/s.

So, I ejected the drive, then re-inserted the GoFlex. Guess what? Nothing. So the bottom line is you cannot hot-swap with this card / driver... BUT... as long as you boot your Mac with the device installed, you will get super speed performance that more than makes up for the inconvenience.

That said, I think paying $69 for the other card from OyenDigital would be a fair price, IF it doesn't have this problem. I will contact that company and ask them.

This card now contains the ASMedia 104x chip. ASMedia 104x Drivers will make it work. Too bad the seller didn't include an instruction page since the mini CD had 6 different drivers on them and it was a trial and error process to figure out which one is the correct driver.

This device comes with a mini-CD and zero instructions. If you've read the reviews here and on other sites, you can see that it may contain an internal controller from any of three makers, and there is nothing on the outside to tell you which. The drivers are on the disk in multiple folders, along with several SATA controller drivers that have nothing to do with this device. Deciding which to use is guesswork. Windows 7 won't just find the right one from the disk, In my case, the card needed the ASM driver, which is in the first folder on the CD, but it's in a .rar that needs to be extracted. Once I ran the extracted setup.exe, the driver installation worked fine, but I have to dock a star for making buyers depend on these reviews for tech support. That's a judgment call that may be unfair given the price of this device, but I'm making it, anyway. The reviews here clearly show that buyers can't always figure these things out for themselves.

The other star gets docked for power consumption. My Lenovo battery usually lasts more than 4 hours when fully charged. With this card installed, battery life drops about 30-40%, which seems almost inconceivable. It's pretty warm when it's ejected.

My only other gripe is that the device ejects if I'm not careful to hold it steady when inserting or removing a USB plug. In use, the card ultimately works fine. It's firmly seated in the expresscard slot, with no wiggle, it clicks in and out, and it sits dead-flush with the case of my Thinkpad. That's not as important as I thought it would be, though, since its power-hungry nature makes me reluctant to leave it in the slot when not in use.
