Couldn't have been any simpler.. My aging Dell desktop computer was having me play the musical chairs when it came to plugging in my myriad of USB peripherals (some directly, but mostly through a powered hub).
Every new day brought a different saga of plugging and unplugging various devices and hoping (often in vain) for the best.. Some peripherals would take over a half hour to even power on (a particularly infuriating example of this would be the half hour wait for the mouse to be recognized...).
So I decided to make use of my one last available PCI slot by using this product, thereby bypassing the hub altogether..If i don't have to spend another hour before a work deadline yanking at an obtuse thicket of seemingly identical, yet inexplicably non-functional wires....then my life would be the better for it..
The product came neatly packaged and promptly.. All it took to install was to snap in place and voila! My cantankerous beast of a computer which at times has difficulty recognizing its own monitor, picked up the 5 new USB 2.0 high speed ports without a moments hesitation..
You'll notice I said 5 usb ports - even though there are clearly only 4 visible on the packaging. No, Im not quite insane yet, but to be clear thats 4 ports facing outward towards the back of the computer and one port on the card itself on the inside..

Now lest you think that 5th one would go to waste , i came up with a nifty little idea and plugged a 32GB thumb drive into it.. now I have a semi-permanent 32GB SSD drive in the most cost effective way I can think of. It's classy when I say its classy after all!
Performance-wise this card is much zippier than the onboard USB 2.0 slots I have.. Im not sure whether its a grounding issue, or the fact that the onboards may not be communicating with one another well, but it doesn't really matter because for just a couple of bucks I more than solved the problem!..
After all, you can't beat the price for what you get..

Works, was plug-and-play on my Windows 7 machine, no drivers needed to install. I found out I already had a USB PCI card when going through my stockpile of old equipment (doh!) but this was cheap and works consistently, absolutely zero issues in the several weeks it's been installed (I have my M/K plugged into it and zero issues).

I've never seen an internal USB device, so I don't know why there is a port for one in this product, but the four on the outside serve my purposes nicely. Great price as usual from Amazon and fast free shipping.

My old Dell PC had 6 USB ports on the rear and 2 on the front and all the rear ports had devices plugged into them. My new Dell PC only had 4 on the rear and 2 on the front, which left no spares. I simply plugged the Vantec card into my new Windows 7 PC, plugged in my USB devices, and booted it up. Everything works great. As great as this product is, it would not be necessary if PC manufacturers would realize that most of the add-on peripheral devices nowadays are USB interface. I think 10 USB ports on the rear of the chassis would not be unreasonable.

Getting a BSOD on Windows XP 32 bit. Seemed to install fine - no errors show up on Device Manager but system crashes (Blue Screen of Death) every two to three days.

No other changes to system and it was stable up to installation of this device.

All I had to do was install in my Windows 7 computer it detected the card and did the necessary configurations, no driver ti be installed at all. It works great no complaints at all.

Vance products are some of the best no hassle products you will find.

With all products read the instructions first nit last.

The package does say that it will install on Windows 7 both 32 and 64 bit operating systems. It will install without any problem, but when you connect a USB 2.0 or 1.1 device you will get a Blue Screen Of Death. If you are running any versions of Windows 7. I would advise you to stear clear of this card. Purchase one that is made for Windows 7.

Card popped into my Asus P5NSLI board in a matter of seconds, and was live as soon as Win 7 booted. Supports USB 2.0 and has 4 external, 1 internal slot. Great expansion for the price if you're hurting for usb ports.

This item was a life saver. At first I bought the "spider" link, but none of them worked because their sharing the amps of one port. This way all ports have their individual amps so each one was able to work sufficiently. Great product.
