Consumer review by:

Didn't work

 

Windows 8.1 M5A88-V evo mobo

Was pretty cheap, 7-8 bucks. Seems to have a fairly good success rate

Popped it into the motherboard, turned the computer on, and nothing. Isn't detected by my system, so it looks like I'll have to figure out how to return this

No USB2.0 Driver for XP-64bit

 

This card needs an IRQ assigned to the PCI slot in the motherboard, at least that is true for my Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L.

Easy to install and recognized by hardware without any problems. I bought it for an old P4 and it worked well as USB2.0

Drivers are only available for 32-bit operating systems. When I upgraded my system to XP-64 bit, the windows driver falls back to USB1.0 driver. There are no drivers for USB2.0 64-bit OS

Isn't working with Windows 8

 

I don't know - it isn't working

When I plugged it in to my Windows 8 computer it got "Unknown USB device, invalid device description ; I was sure that I checked it for Widnows 8 compatability, but evidentially not

Consumer review by:

HA! HA! Just what I needed!

 

When you need more USB ports, but don't like hubs and cords hanging around this is for you.

I now have four additional USB ports

Huh

Works Fine

 

Easy to install, and Windows 7 (Home Premium 64-bit) recognized it immediately upon bootup. It has a low profile, and isn't some ugly orange/brown color. So far, it works just fine

Works great in my old pc

 

This is in a core 2 Duo system running Win7 that recognized both devices on the first boot and it has been working great.

Have an older PC with only 4 rear USB's. I used this combined w/ the front 3.5" usb hub http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817801001 giving me more ports than I know what to do with

None so far

The dirty little secret...

 

Will be forced to stock another brand unfortunately.

Its rosewill, inexpensive and good quality

The description here says 4+1 which is perhaps a better explanation. But when I have these on my store shelves, they clearly say "USB 2.0 5 Port PCI Adapter" people are upset to learn, that they are NOT 5 ports, but only 4. If you use the internal...

Ran right out of the box, no configuration need in Win 7
