Solved USB compatibility problem with Saitek game controler. The Intel Chipset USB controller drivers on Motherboards using the Intel Z97 chipset and running Windows 7 are incompatible with my Saitek X52 Pro joystick. This Star Tech card had the two things I needed to fix this problem a PCI express interface for my motherboard and at least two USB2 ports controlled by the NEC chipset that uses the native Windows 7 drivers and not the incompatible Intel windows 7 drivers.

My system froze and the USB mouse and keyboard would not work with the Saitek Joystick attached to the onboard USB 2 or USB3 but everything runs fine with this card installed and the Joystick plugged into it.

Being in the computer sales, services, repair business, I have installed USB adapter cards into many computers. This card is one of the better installations. Simply insert the card into an available PCI Express (PCIe) slot (x4, x8, or x16), close the case, turn on the PC, plug in the devices, and with all Windows operating systems from XP to Win8, the card and all attached devices are immediately found and recognized. The card runs perfectly. Installation could not be easier or more simple. I am yet to see these cards fail in any respect. I would recommend this card to anyone needing additional USB 2.0 ports. The price is a bit more than most USB adapter cards, but this card is bears superb NEC operating chips, one of the reasons it is so reliable. It is worth the extra money spent.

CAREFULL ! I got lucky. I plugged it into my PCIEx1 slot and hit the power switch on Dell desktop, Windows 7 started to start and then froze. Tried the other PCIEx1, same thing. Tried the PCIEx16 slot out of desperation and IT WORKED for some reason. Since I wasn't using the x16 slot for anything else, I just left it there and decided to use it that way.

Works perfectly with my older USB hardware in Windows 8.1. I have a brand new, shiny MSI Z97-G45 motherboard with a 3rd gen i7 CPU and my old MIDI USB interface would not run properly on this hardware with Windows 8.1 because of the USB 3.0 xHCI stack drivers that run in this OS so I had to buy this PCIe USB Card as a workaround for this crazy compatibility issue. Now my legacy hardware runs great and all is well with my MIDI Synths and MDM.

There are 4 external ports, and 1 internal port which faces directly out the back end of the card. You can see it in the picture, it's the silver connecter on the back edge. I connected a USB Bluetooth device to this internal port, which has worked out quite well. I've been using this card for six months and it has performed flawlessly.
