Improved Performance with UASP
UASP is supported in Windows 8, Server 2012 and Linux kernel 2.6.3 or later. In testing UASP performed with up to a 70% faster read / 40% faster write speed over traditional USB 3.0 at peak performance.
At the same peak in testing, UASP also showed up to an 80% reduction in required processor resources.
Test results were obtained using an Intel Ivy Bridge system, StarTech add-on USB 3.0 cards, a UASP-enabled StarTech enclosure, and a SATA III solid state drive.

Similar to other reviews, I really don't like that the whole card pulls out when pulling out an attached USB plug. I have to remember to put my finger over it to hold it in.
Update: After having this card a few days, I have noticed it is unable to resume function after my laptop goes to sleep, causing me to have to restart. Given that these cards are supposed to go in laptops, putting it to sleep while transporting is very common and the reset is a big enough hassle for me to return it and lower my review by a star.
Earlier today, I received the StarTech card in the mail. I stuck it in the computer, downloaded the firmware and driver updates from the StarTech website, and then installed both the firmware and the drivers. Was done in less than five minutes, easy. Rebooted the computer and everything works!
I have a ten port USB 3 hub that I plug all my peripheral into so that I have only the power cord, audio cable and USB 3 cable from the hub to deal with when taking the laptop with me. One of the devices hanging off of the hub is a USB 3 to HDMI video adapter. With the USB 3 hub plugged into this card, all the jittery video is gone and the image looks much crisper. When the hub is plugged in, the primary video image automatically rolls to the 33" Samsung monitor and automatically increases the resolution as well.
Backups to the 4TB drive, also hanging off the same USB 3 hub are now faster than before. This StarTech ExpressCard is much better than the old IOGear card.
For somewhat older laptops, that are still running well and have an unused ExpressCard slot, but do not have a USB 3 port built into them, I strongly recommend the purchase of this card. It is a very seamless, and substantial upgrade.
Speeds are very reasonable. The Sandisk Read/Write is in the range of 35MBs/20MBs respectively and the WD Passport 50MBs/35MBs respectively. Some of the speeds may be limited by the HD write speed of my RAID1 Lenovo W700 Laptop.
All in all I give it a 2 thumbs up.
I read a few of the negative reviews, and in particular one, who said that even with technical support's help, he could not get it working. Well, I got mine in today for a Lenovo T520, and when I plugged it in, not only did it not recognize, it made my USB 2.0 mouse herky-jerky.
I went into my BIOS to the Config>Power menu, and turned off "PCI Express Power management", and saved my settings upon exit. Once I rebooted, and inserted the card, it was found immediately, and my mouse was fine. I tested, and my transfer rates to a Sandisk Extreme were great.
