Sabrent apparently OEMs various manufacturers to produce these boards under this same Sabrent model number PCIX-USB3. Some of the boards work flawlessly and others do not. I have purchased two of these boards in the past and both work flawlessly. I recently purchased another board and the new board is absolute junk.

While this latest PCIX-USB3 board would work with my MomentusXT in a USB 3 caddy, it would not work with a NexStar SATA to USB 3 adapter. When you plug in a drive, the hard drive would momentarily appear, then disappear, then popup with a 'Format this drive' requester. I knew something was wrong with this behavior as the drive is formatted and works perfectly on another system.

I took the card out and returned it to Fry's and looked to see what other cards they had available. Turns out that there are at least two versions of the Sabrent PCIX-USB3 board at Fry's (each in different packaging). One is printed on the board with the words 'NEC Electronics Corporation'. The non-working board appears to be generic without any manufacturer labels. The non-working 'generic' board is a lighter shade of green and has a Molex power plug that points towards the front of the case. The functioning board that's labeled 'NEC Electronics Corporation' has the power plug that points upward towards the side/top of the case and has a darker green-ish/blue color. This board also has two LEDs right near the USB ports. Again, the packaging is also different.

I'm not sure which one is the newer board, but it's clear that the 'generic' board may not work properly. The other issue with the generic board was that the Molex connector was loose on the board. So, when you plug in power to the board, it feels like you're going to break this connector off.

1. The Amazon description states:
"Requires 15-pin SATA Power Connector"
The package states
"4-pin power connector for extra power." My power supply has no old-style connectors. No go there.

2. The package states "driver CD." The Amazon description states "Drivers CD."
Must have gotten left out somehow. Granted, I have the Internet and can use Google, but should I have to after paying 30 bucks for something that...

3. Does not actually appear to support a USB 3.0 drive.
My drive disappears when it is plugged into the card but pops right back up when attached to a USB 2.0 port. It supports a USB 2.0 drive just fine.

I'm pretty stewed. Back to Amazon to try again.

I ordered this USB 3 card so I could utilize 2 external USB video cards. These video cards can operate on USB 2 or 3. If your using USB 2 then you can only get an 800x600 resolution. This PCIX USB 3 card is stuck in 2.0 mode. It will not operate at USB 3.0. I tried obtaining firmware from sabrent.com. Their firmware file does nothing at all. Launch it and stare at a blank desktop. Try again, no result. Crappy product that does not operate as stated. Tried a USB 3.0 flash drive to test file transfer. Transfer rate did not exceed 25 megs per second which means USB 2.0 speed. After some research I found out there are 3 different variants of these cards. A black card(ASMedia) version 1 or 2 and a green card which uses a different chipset (NEC). I have the black PCB with Version 1 on the silk screen. AVOID this card. I will be contacting sabrent and requesting an NEC chipset. I'm also gonna let then know their firmware files are messed up.

The board was easy to install, and works as advertised. The only surprise was that the CD included a newer version of the Windows driver than what I found on the Sabrent website.
As for the speed: I only tested it with a portable harddrive (WD My Passport Essential SE 750 GB), and saw about twice the transfer rate using USB 3.0 than USB 2.0 (about 60 MB/sec versus about 30 MB/sec). Not a very scientific test, but it might give you some indication.
My only small complaint: I could not get the card to sit straight in its slot. Both USB slots are accessible, so it is more an aesthetical problem.

I order 2 of USB 3.0 pci card but it won't work with my windows 7 64bit desktop. When I connected WD external hard drive to the Sabrent PCIX-USB3 USB 3.0 2-Port, the Windows can't read. And I connected Transcand Hard drive(USB3 Compatible) but it also doesn't work, too. When I connected it, both hard drive got noisy like "click click" every two or three second. It seems wrong. I tried found this problem but I couldn't get any information because there is no instruction, no trouble shooting information in the package.

Usually, I'm the kind of guy who says you get what you pay for. This however, failed even that. The pci card is glitchy and half the time, it won't even work. During the times it did work, it stopped once in a while and adding another usb will render it useless.

I would suggest you to go find a different 3.0 usb card of a similar price.

I got this for a Dell XPS Studio and luckily I had one cord that fit the 4 pin input. At first it worked, only with USB 2.0 devices, then not at all. It came without any software or instructions. I downloaded drivers from Sabrent website to no avail. This thing is just a dud.

I don't recommend it as it is worthless.

Vidimo Se!
