    This most definitely does upgrade USB1.1 to USB2.0. I have a 7 year old computer that had only USB1.1 and this card enabled me to connect my new digital camcorder as a USB2.0 device. Also works well with Sandisk thumb drives. Throw in a USB2.0 hub and you're good to go! If you're running XP, you won't even have to load any drivers. I am very happy with this card. It even cost less than if I bought it directly from IOGear.

    I bought this card because I was running out of USB ports and needed more. The card has four external USB ports and one internal USB port. Why anybody would need an internal USB port is beyond me. The card was easy to install and initially seemed to work okay. Then I tried to connect a Western Digital external hard drive for backing things up. The external drive would not work when connected to this USB adapter. I had to switch things around and connect the external hard drive to one of the computers original USB ports to get it to work.

    I installed the card in my computer and it works like it should. The only issue was it did require installation of the included driver, so it was not just PnP. Had the card in about three weeks and have not had any issues and the devices connected to it run great. This card is a great way to add additional USB ports to a computer as long as you have an available PCI slot becasue sometimes a multiport hub does not always work correctly with some devices.

    Works great uses full 2.0 USB speed, Windows XP installs drivers without the use of enclosed Driver CD, anyone can install in 5 minutes. Bought 2nd card for another computer using Windows Vista Ultimate same deal installed quick never needed enclosed Driver CD. If you have an older computer with 1.0 USB this will upgrade your system to full 2.0 USB.

    I have a 3 in 1 printer/copier/scanner that has a 2.0 USB connection. I had a 1.1 so I purchased this product so that I could work better with the 3 in 1. The product made absolutely no difference in the speed of transmission from the computer to the printer. I don't think it changed my computer to a 2.0 at all. For me, it was wasted money.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this was to install. I am not computer literate at all and am usually to scared to install stuff myself afraid that I will mess something up and it will end up costing me more in the long run. This was easy to install with step by step instructions and worked like a charm.

    After my PC's old USB connections stopped working, I was searching for a PCI USB card. After reading the reviews on walmart website, the decision became easy. It is really plug and play....just open the slot, slide it, reboot and it started working. No need to download anything. Great value for the price paid.

    This internal 2.0 USB Card is easy to install and gives me the additional 4 USB plug in slotts I needed. When my computer started up it immediately reconized what I installed and set it up for me. I did not have to use the CD that came with it. The price is also fair for the value of what you get.

    The product was a great buy with an easy installation process. My only complaint would be the shipping time. My shipment took and extra seven days for delivery which increased the wait time to 13 days. Next time I will think twice about sacrificing product cost over how soon I need it.
