• This PCI-E card is only compatible with standard-sized tower cases (not mini computers).
• This PCI-E card is powered by a 5V 4 pin power connector. Please confirm that your computer power supply is equipped with a 5V 4 pin power connector plug before purchasing. This is necessary to ensure sufficient power supply and smooth transfers, particularly for large data transfers from hard drive disks (3TB or above).
Top customer reviews
PROS: It's less expensive than most similar items and works perfectly when installed correctly. Physical installation is simple and obvious - be sure to insert the card fully into the appropriate slot and then attach one of the Molex 4-pin connectors from your power supply.
CONS: I bought three of these for various household computers (different brands and specs) and none of the driver installation disks worked with any of the computers. The Uspeed website (USPEED.CO) is a frustrating mish-mash of broken links, confusing navigation, and missing drivers.
HELPFUL HINTS: Try installing the driver disk and it may work. If not, you can try navigating into the Device Manager in Windows and tell Windows to try and find the driver (apparently works for some, but didn't work for me). Or you can save yourself some grief and go straight to VIA for the driver. What you want is VIA's xhci (extensible host controller interface) USB 3.0 driver. Currently the driver is named VL810 Superspeed USB Hub Controller Firmware 0.89 - Released July 22, 2011. Don't bother trying the Intel xhci driver, it's easier to find but won't work.
UPDATE: The latest update to the driver is now version 0.95. VIA says that this update "Resolved issue with Intel USB 3.0 Host where devices were occasionally not properly re-enumerated after resuming from S3/S4, warm-boot, or cold boot." (I did not have that issue with version 0.89)
UPDATE II: Please read the comments section attached to this review as another helpful user has turned up some interesting information.
CURRENT VIA URL: (Deleted by Amazon)
WARNING: If you do a Google search for the driver most of your hits are going to be from outfits trying to con you into downloading their proprietary driver-update software. Don't do it, your computer will end up slow and cluttered with spam. Get the driver directly from VIA.
UPDATE III: Again, please read the comments section. Many users have been very helpful with reporting their experiences, tips, & tricks.
I checked Anker's support site for this device and found that they have upgraded the VIA XHCI driver from V4.20 that was on the small included disc to V4.90 that I downloaded from their site. Once I completed the firmware update to V4.90 everything started working fast and no problems recognizing the new card or anything attached to it.
I am using an external Kingston 3.0 multi-card reader and once it started working correctly it would "fall asleep" about every half hour requiring the device to be plugged in again. Going to Device Manager>Universal Bus Controller>USB Root Hub>Power Management and un-checking "Allow the computer to turn off the device to save power" solved that issue.
I will attach the Anker sites new driver link in the comments section if you need it.
For a couple of hours I was frustrated with this 3.0 port card and believe that Anker could do a better job in letting new purchasers know that an updated driver is available if your having issues. That is why I gave it a 4 star rating, other than that it's a fast reliable 3.0 USB card.
I will note that, at least in my pcs, the bracket isn't a perfect fit. The pc that I'm using the card is an asus p8h61-m, installed in a modified micro-atx case from a 2003 hp pavillion (I'm reusing it to build myself a custom mid/low end pc for day to day browsing and such; It's replacing a 2012 hp pavilion, which I'll be using in another room). Anyway, in the 2003 micro-atx case, the bracket is a bit too long, so I made a spacer using some hard plastic that I had lying around. My other pc is an asus maximus ix hero in a corsair carbide case, which I used to test the card. In my carbide/hero, the bracket would not slide in past the heat spreader on the board, due to the raised lips on the sides of the bracket (I broke of a portion of the lips using a pair of pliers in order to test the card with my hero). I don't know if the bracket issue would be a common issue or something that will only cause problems for a few people, but it's worth mentioning.
The homegroup thing is most likely an unrelated windows bug.
Anker did contact me via email to see if I was having any problems, and they responded to my reply within a reasonable time frame. I initially sent them the details about my issue, and they replied asking for more information about my specs. I discovered the issue before sending them the information, but I appreciate that they're available for customers who have problems with their products.
Original review and update below:
The 19 pin internal header (the reason that I bought this) doesn't work. The rear ports do work, but now I've got two dead usb ports on my front panel, meaning that I either have to replace those ports with usb 2.0 ports, or buy another pcie usb 3.0 card, and "hope" the next one works properly. This product has wasted both my money and my time.
update: Had to remove because it caused my pc to fail to boot, and may have also somehow permenantly broken homegroup settings.
