Update (9-23-2013): My Seagate External GoFlex 2TB which is connected to this new Anker USB 3.0 card does "NOT" get recognized instantly when booting up cold. I checked the USB Controllers in the Windows "Device manager", and I see all VIA USB drivers DO NOT have "exclamation points" and seem to be working fine, but the 2.0 TB GoFlex HD is not showing up with a "DRIVE Designation" letter assigned to it. Only when I pull the power from the GoFlex and re-power (reconnect the power), then it gets recognized. What a pain in the "A$$," having to un-power and re-power the GoFlex every time I need to access the 2.0 TB...
So, based on this issues (perhaps a new driver updated is warranted??), I am knocking down yet another star. So now it is down to 3 stars.
Booting up to Windows 8 yielded no new device detected, and the WD Passport drive is not showing up. I ran the installation CD with drivers, rebooted and still nothing.
Plugging into a USB 2.0 port in the PC yields a power problem. It seems the WD Passport needs more power than the computer can supply. This is new! So far, the drive IS WORKING even though it needs more power. Looks like I will have to sacrifice another device to find power. I thought USBs claim to fame was to be able to hook up to 256 device in series. Another failed promise by the computer industry!
OK, I found a power cable that works with my power supply, and the USB 3 card is now working. Seems I have an older power supply and most. I have updated the rating to reflect my happiness.
Thanks to Anker for responding to my initial, distressed post as quickly as they did.
I have purchased batteries from Anker and I love the quality of their products. I have not been disappointed by this card so far.
I have only tested 2 of the USB ports so far but I am getting 3.0 speeds (for me on my PC, I am gettting x5 or x6 faster speeds than the 2.0 ports I have on my tower)
I plan on using the internal USB port soon but for now I am content with how easy this card was to get up and running. I will update my review if something goes bad with the card but after a few days I am very pleased with this product.
Just make sure you have a SATA power splitter or an unused power connection...
