Customer Reviews

Here is what ever new build computer needs.
Claw
If you're running out of back panel USB ports and your motherboard will support it, this is a great way to avoid cables being plugged into the front USB ports.

For those of you out there that build your own systems, products like these are great for getting the most out the motherbords that we buy.

Installed easily and worked well on my Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H motherboard, and this product matches the picture of the bracket offered by Gigabyte.
The pin assignment is the one most commonly used on current MoBo's, providing two USB ports on one connector:
pin 1&2: power (5V); pin 3&4: Data-; pin 5&6: Data+; pin 7&8: Ground; pin 9: Key (blocked to ensure proper orientation); pin 10: unused.
However, there are enough other pin assignments out there that you should check your MoBo before ordering. If you didn't get the hardware manual for your computer, remember that it is probably available at the manufacturer's web site.

The cable was plenty long to reach the connectors at the bottom-middle of my MoBo from any bracket position and still allow some flexibility in routing. It is 13 inches from bracket to header--be aware that there are similar products that have much shorter cables.

All the connectors on the bracket worked well -- I didn't encounter the loose connectors reported in an earlier review.

My only "complaint" is that they didn't manage to fit two more ports on the bracket. Since the connectors take so little real estate on the MoBo, many MoBo's provide connectors for these expansion brackets. For example, the AMD SB850 South Bridge chip provides 3 USB _controllers_ that connect to 12 available USB ports on my MoBo, with 4 of these are hardwired to the back panel. I connected 2 to the ports on the front panel of my case, and 4 to this bracket, leaving 2 still unused.

On choosing to have additional ports instead of using a USB hub:

I use this with my Asus P5Q Pro Turbo Motherboard and it gives me the connections needed to yield 4 USB ports. I plug my Microsoft Lifecam Cinema HD into it with excellent results. Asus P5Q PRO Turbo Core 2 Quad/ Intel P45/ DDR2-1300/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard

Make sure to check your motherboard pinouts. Even if your mobo supports USB 2.0, the pinouts may not be correct. The plug on this has pin 9 as key (no pin) and pin 10 is vacant. This product doesn't work with the Gigabyte 7V-RXP. It DOES work on my MSI board.

I have a motherboard that supports 2 front and 4 back USB ports in addition to the the 6 on the back plane of the computer. I looked at quite a few websites to find this USB expansion slot add-on - it was hard to find one, let alone a good one. I popped out the expansion slot cover, installed it in the expansion slot, plugged it in to the motherboard connectors, powered up the computer, and immediately had 4 more USB ports with no additional configuration and no problems. If you're running out of back panel USB ports and your motherboard will support it, this is a great way to avoid cables being plugged into the front USB ports. It's a quality piece of computer equipment.

Pros:
-Mounts on a PCI port and as my case had a port away from the motherboard, it didn't waste any of the slots.
-4 plugs from 2 motherboard headers
Cons:
-Little hard getting usb devices plugged in at first due to some misalignment but I don't have this issue much anymore and since it's in the back, devices rarely get unplugged/plugged in.

I have a strange problem with my computer. There are not enough USB ports and there are no slots open smaller than 16X. So when I saw this I though I would be able to add some USB ports. But, when I opened my case there was only one nine pin connector open and this product needs two. I called Ultra support and they said with one connection I would get two USB ports working. However, when I started my computer I had multiple problems including 'blue screens', etc. I had to remove this and needed to do some repair work to get my computer working again.
Tiger Direct immediately issued me a RMA and a refund (including postage).

This has 2 each 9 contact headers that plug into two each USB2 headers on your motherboard. Each of these feeds two USB2 jacks which are mounted on a common PCI rear panel. If you have a standard height PCI slot available its a good way to take advantage of the USB2 outputs from your motherboard.

In my particular case, I have a compact (thin) ATX mini case and 4 USB connectors will not physically fit within the compact (short height) PCI area. I was aware of this. You can remove the USB2 connectors from the attached PCI Bracket. You can simply cut the 4 USB2 connector assembly into two each 2 USB2 connectors. Note that when you cut the connector assembly in half, you actually need to cut to one side so that one of the 1/2 connector assemblies has two mounting lugs and a "wasted half" has only one mounting lug. Given I didn't have better options and the bracket is cheap enough it worked for me.

Does exactly what it says: Allows additional ports on the backplane by attaching to the motherboard's internal headers. Supports USB 2, does not support USB 3.
