Looks good for the money. I paid more than this for a two port one not so long ago.

Not being tech savvy, If I install this card I can plug any usb device and it would read/write quicker than my current usb2 connections?

Nope - if you have a USB 3 device it should read/write quicker than when the same device is plugged into a USB2 or USB1/1.1 port.

Was hoping it would have a header on the board too but good price for 4 ports.

Heat.

That is correct, using a USB 2.0 device on a USB 3.0 port will still work but will not have any speed improvement. However if you have say a USB 3.0 external hard drive or memory stick, then read/write speeds will be increased by a good margin.

That one has a header for people wanting to take advantage of any USB 3 ports on front panels but have an older motherboard that only had USB 2 headers.

There is a 2 port option on the drop down box on Amazon. It is slightly more expensive, but still looks like a good deal.

You can't lol. You mean plugging a USB 3.0 hub into a USB 2.0 port? Doesn't work like that.
#13
can't see the connection but most of these cards need powering. I've seen a few that actually need a floppy drive connection which not all PC have these days

No such thing as a cheap USB 3 hub - seem absolutely ridiculously expensive compared to USB 2 hubs.
#18
ordered thanks!!! been wanting to feel the power of usb 3 for a long time now.
#19
I bought one of tgese hut unable to power as I do not have molex connectors from my psu? I think I have sata power slots? I bought a molex to sata cable but I ended up with a female molex which wont slot into the pci-e usb card

I'm guessing it was somebody with an older laptop. If his older laptop has an express card slot then they could use an express card to USB3 card.

Generic USB3 cards are £6-7 on eBay (from China).

I have this in my basket: TeckNet® USB 3.0 4 Ports PCI Express Expansion Card

Pretty much the same right?

No I have a usb 3.0 laptop and dont have enough usb ports so need a hub for more.

Best hub that works under £100 is http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006TTA75Y For £35 it's a great bit of kit because it's mains powered and there's lots of power. If you have a super tight budget then this range works good http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161006079416 and just use a wall plug USB like http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280887871391 to get additional power (it's intended to use a USB socket for power but I'd not do that).

Anker's stuff seems a good step above the no-brand tat and it's worth paying for.

All these cards function well IME with x64 W8 but you must get the driver right so even though you may not use the driver on the disc (newer one on the Internet) keep a note of it. Only problem I've had with USB is using those 19/20 pin connectors with front port bays etc -just throws the driver and can disable the card. Maybe a driver issue maybe power but buying a separate powered hub always resolves this for me.

Avoid cheap hubs with no power (they are just extension cables and split the power) and long cables. Use what's in the box or shorter.

Some of these PCI cards do have an official Windows 8 driver but you'll not know until you get it.

... now there's an idea ...

Might be worth noting :
PLEASE NOTE
This PCI-E card is powered by a 5V 4 pin power connector. Please confirm that your computer motherboard 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).
#29
Might buy one of these...
#30
Does anyone know if this is a low profile bracket (or comes with one).
Thanks in advance
#31
You will also need a pci-E slot. pci is no good. Just a warning as I bought one and my motherboard was a bit old and that slot was being used for a graphics card.

Yes that is correct, I was just quoting what Amazon said. The data on the camelcamel website is for a 3rd party seller, and the Amazon data is not available. Hence both are correct.
These ridiculous RRPs are only worth quoting in a court trial for false trade description.

I have this in my basket: TeckNet® USB 3.0 4 Ports PCI Express Expansion Card

Pretty much the same right?

I bought the TeckNet one recently and consider it a waste of the £12 I paid. I have Windows 7 Pro x64 and installed the drivers from the disk as well as trying the one someone suggested in the Amazon review. It worked with the USB3 drive I had but as soon as I plugged in a USB2 drive, it disconnected all the drives. I also experienced several blue-screen-of-deaths after having installed the drivers. In the end, I gave up on it and removed all traces of it from my system.

A lot of USB3 cards have driver issues, and it looks like a number people have had problems with this one, but looking at the reviews it looks like most people are fine.

You can see from the photo that with four ports it takes up the full length of the bracket so is useless for low profile slots. The two port alternative that G0OSE posted might conceivably come with a low profile bracket or you could bodge one up yourself for it.

That eBay one is OK but Anker do provide a level of support for their products http://www.ianker.com/anker-uspeed-usb-3.0-extension-cable-cord/product/68UPPCIE-4SU -unlike a no-name China brand throwing in a 20p cable and leaving you guessing which one of the latest USB3.0 drivers will work well.

Thunk I'll just stick with a USB hub. Especially for non bandwidth heavy peripherals.

Does that need a four way power supply, is it a male or female termination?
