      Comments about Buffalo IFC-EC2U3/UC2 USB 3.0 Express Card Adapter:

      This works beautifully. I needed something faster than USB 2.0 and more practical than eSATA on my laptop, so I got this. Pops rights into the Express Card slot and voila! No, the ports aren't inherently powered, but it comes with the cable to power them from another USB port (or eSATAp). It is incredibly simple to use and functions exactly like built in ports.

          Comments about Buffalo IFC-EC2U3/UC2 USB 3.0 Express Card Adapter:

          So far I've been able to get 50 - 60MB/s transfer from a WD external 3.0 drive to my SSD on my laptop. Solid steady performance with plug and play recognition from Windows 7 64-bit. Maybe not as fast as the StarTech version... but then again the StarTech doesn't come with a 3-year warranty either.
