        Comments about SIIG 4-Port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed PCIe Adapter Card:

        I added this adapter card to my ~4 y/o HP desktop to gain USB 3.0 capability. I found it easy to install and also purchased with it and installed a StarTech 4 Pin Molex to SATA Power Cable Adapter (6") from B+H, although not necessary to run my two USB 3.0 external hard drives. But for $ why not get the power cable in the event you need to power a device that needs the extra juice? I have not tested any actual transfer speeds; however, I do notice a much, much faster transfer rate when I back up the data on my computer's C: drive to the external hard drives. I also intend to use another of the card's USB 3.0 ports to attach a USB 3.0 SDXC/CF card reader. Instructions for installation of the driver on the accompanying CD was easy.

          Easy to install. Works well with my USB 3.0 card reader and USB 3.0 external drive. Both are noticeably faster than the USB 2.0 interfaces that came with my computer.

                Comments about SIIG 4-Port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed PCIe Adapter Card:

                I bought this for my new Dell XPS 8700. I worked immediately, and I did not have to install software. When I first plugged items into the ports, there was some lack of connection, but all is well now (must have had some dust in there).NOTE: I tried a different 3.0 card on my older Dell XPS 8000 (which did not have 3.0 USB ports), and it did not work. I assume your computer must be able to handle USB 3.0 for these cards to work.

                  - Good quality
                  - NEC chipset
                  - Recognized by Windows (no need to download or install anything)
                  - Love that when you sleep the computer, the connected peripherals are shut-down.
