    WD WDBFNJ0000NNC-WASN Reviews

    USB 3.0 PCIe Card is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Bought the card to see if it addressed the occasional usb 3.0 device disconnects. It does power an WD usb 3.0 Passport drive without any external power source (e.g. SATA or molex power connections). I have not yet tried an external 3.5 hard drive in a usb 3.0 enclosure.Did a firmware check and discovered this a Renesas chip, similar to those on my motherboard. Found the WD card slightly slower on writes vs the onboard chips (95Mbs vs 100Mbs); writes were nearly identical at 112 Mbs.Net is that I would definitely recommend this card to anyone who wants to add usb 3.0 ports to their PC, or to supplement the existing ports.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I had a USB 3 card before but it was very finicky - working whenever it wanted. No such problems with this product. It is fast and has never stopped working. It also fits the case exactly. Has a white light, but I actually like that since it is enough to help me see the ports without using a flash light in the dark. I have a 4-port USB3 hub attached to one of its connectors and the hub works at full power too. Using my WD 1TB USB3 Passport external drive I get up to 90 MB/sec transfer speeds with large files.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speed Up External Drives with USB 3.0 Provides a significant speed increase over USB 2.0, from 21MB/sec to 90 MB/sec with a USB 3.0 drive. The board does not require an internal power cable to get enough juice and has enough power to drive a portable external hard drive. Fits perfectly in a low profile chasis using the included face plate.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from ERROR CODE 10 Device would not work on my Win7 64bit system. Driver installed fine but device manager indicated error code 10. I now must try another brand. I would not have wanted to give the item a rating but rating was required.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance Easily installed in a W7(64 bit)desktop PC and has reduced my backup time to a WD external drive by approximately 70%.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug&Play, no other power source needed (Load the drivers before installing the PCI card, it says it clear on the CD)...This product is to use with my USB 3.0 portable drive. I have plugged in 4-5 devices thus far and it continues to respond smoothly. After purchasing a model that required another power source (aside from the PCI) I decided that this was the best option, I wasn't wrong. What is great about this PCI card is that it has a bright light that serves as guidance to the USB 3.O ports.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast connection for external drives Flawless install. Works extremely fast with the one external 2.5 external drive set up for USB 3.0. USB 2.0 devices (external drives and printers) are fully supported. This is an easy and affordable way to upgrade a tower computer to USB 3.0 standards. I wish it had 4 or 5 plugs though so many external devices are no coming with WiFi and Bluetooth connections all those wires may be a thing of the past.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works, easy install... using pc.. xp... was able to copy files using windows copy command from internal disk to external portable usb3.0 disk at appx 3gb per min... on usb 2.0, the speed was appx 1.1 gb per min... so it was much faster... the card was probably capable of more, but the limitations of a 3 yr old computer may have held it back...
