This is a review of the HDE (TM) USB 3.0 PCI Express Card, 3 + 1 Ports dated March 12, 2012.

I purchased this USB 3.0 card (from HDE on Amazon) to add 3 external and one internal ports to my existing Dell desktop computer. The main purpose was to add external USB hard drives for backup and transport capabilities. Why did I go for USB 3 instead of the more proven USB 2... SPEED!

I chose this card based on nothing other than its low price ($16 from Amazon). There were no previous reviews. And it appeared there were few, if any, sales. Yeh, I know, you get what you pay for... and, in this case, the saying is correct.

I'm running Win-XP-Home SP3 on the Dell as it meets my requirements for what I need from a backup desktop. The processor is Intel, 3GHz, 4Gb of memory, and a 256Gb internal hard drive. Nothing spectacular, a typical run-of-the-mill Dell desktop from 3-4 years ago.

The card was quickly shipped by HDE, a distributor in the NorthEast. The card's box is a plain generic with English printing. HDE does not identify the card's origin or manufacturer (nor did their Tech Support) so they represent it to the outside world as theirs (the box/card, however, are made in China according to the imprinting on the box).

The box contained the PCI Express style card and a mini-CD. The mini-CD (generic markings on printed side) contained 14 sets of drivers (each under its own subdirectory) for multiple products. Luckily, there was a model number on the outside of the box which tied up with one of the subdirectories or I'd still be sitting there scratching my head. THERE IS NO INSTALLATION SHEET, not even a half page, shrunk down, text sheet which I've seen on other add-ons I've purchased.

There is also no autostart on the mini-CD.

Exact same thing as the customer above me, I took the chance to try it as I'm using a windows 7 home edition I thought maybe it could easily figure out the drivers stuff and so on... Well after a lot of work trying to make this work out... nothing. External drives start rolling as you can hear it but windows will never recognize them. Totally useless!!!
