I installed drivers first from CD, then shut down and installed PCIe card. I started system, waited for drivers to finish auto-installing, then conducted speed tests. I found that speed never went below 75MB per second on large, 2GB size file transfers. Measuring actual speed is tricky because of Windows caching and its continued transfers AFTER the "copy" screen disappears. I have "abpmon" performance monitoring, multi-graph display always visible on right of screen so I can tell what is actually happening in Windows. While I had apparent transfers as fast as 115MB per second, the accurate, sustained speed finding was 75MB per second. Nice!
Make sure you install the software first, before you install the card.
Write Speed from internal hard-drive to WD 1TB My passport SE.
Moved 70GB of data resulted in a average speed of 60mb/sec.
Moving 10GB of data resulted in a average speed of 80mb/sec.
Moving less than 5GB of data resulted in a average speed of 100mb/sec.
This is definitely a step up from USB 2.0 which had a avg speed of 25mb/sec.
The lowest write speed I saw on this card was 55mb/sec.
There are white lights near the ports on the card which make it very easy to see so you don't have to use a flashlight when you go underneath your desk.
You don't need to add additional power to this card like some of the other cards require.
I contacted WD support and because it is not bundled with a hard drive (e.g. My Book), they refused to support it.
I appealed but was still denied. I highly recommend you not buy it, just for one reason: If a company will not stand behind a new product, they don't deserve for you to support their poor choices not to take care of you when it fails.
