I had to reinstall the driver number of times before my PC system (2010 BIOS date) finally recognized the new device. After the 1st install, I got an exclamation point in one of the USB driver in the Systems. I tried "uninstalling, removing, etc.." for numerous times and the exclamation point persistently reappeared. I am not a novice when it comes to installing and configuring PC peripherals as I have built all of previous 8+ Desktop systems I owned. I do not remember how I finally got it to work (I think I may have resorted to installing the same driver over and over until the exclamation point disappeared), but the process was very time consuming and frustrating. BTW, I am running Win-7 Ultimate 64-bit system. I would have given 5 if it wasn't for the driver install issue.

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.

OK, I read threw the install instructions, and there is a bit about cabling. The cable they want you to use in the instructions is called an IDE to SATA cable. The cable in the box is a SATA to power cable. I DID NOT install the cable.

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!

UPDATE
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.

After doing a ton of research on various USB 3.0 PCI-express cards, I finally settled on the Anker for a combination of price, positive reviews, and the fact that it uses a VIA chipset (versus a more generic chip.) I'm happy I went with this card and I have no complaints. Transfer speeds on my USB 3.0 hard drives went from ~30 MB/s on my existing USB 2 ports to over 100 MB/s when using this card. I'm using it with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit (for which it didn't need any drivers--Windows discovered and configured it automatically.)

I have an old (4 years) tower. USB 2.0. I wanted to upgrade to USB 3.0 so I can get faster transfer speed to external hard drives for backing up my PC. Saw this card and purchased it. Installation into my tower was a breeze - found a slot and attached the power cord. Rebooted and was stepped through the driver installation. Took about 5 minutes for the install and then another reboot. Wow. This is a rocket compared to my 2.0 transfers. An easy way to improve your PC's performance if you do any writing to external devices. Highly recommended!

This is a good price for a USB 3.0 card. No problems with installation on an older Dell Optiplex 755 running Windows 7 x64. Using it mainly to run backups to a WD Passport drive. After a week of use the card is working fine.

I needed USB 3.0 to take full advantage of my new Seagate Backup Plus 4TB external drive. This card was a simple install, after downloading the latest driver from the Anker website (I always do this to ensure I have the latest version), I ran the installation and the driver loaded without a problem on my fully updated Windows 7 machine, plugged in the Seagate drive and it was populated in the Windows Explorer Navigation Pane. Simple and fast. Makes those 50+GB file transfers a breeze.

First of all I am using a desktop computer running Windows 7. I have installed 3 new USB 3 ports and the Anker work flawlessly for me. You plug them and load the drivers and they work. What more can you ask for.

Great USB 3.0 card! Easy to set up. My only issue is I didn't have an extra SATA power connection to use so I had to unplug one of my optical drives.

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...
