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.

Has anybody put nor into a win 7 x64 OS system - as some people say the card upsets their PC dramatically

You can't lol. You mean plugging a USB 3.0 hub into a USB 2.0 port? Doesn't work like that.
oneman#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.

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.
