Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I purchased this for a Dell XPS desktop running Vista that had an extra PCI slot and no available PCI-E slot. I knew I wouldn't get full USB 3.0 speed but I expected some improvement over USB 2.0. I got none. StarTech's technical support basically told me the problem was my motherboard and that their product wouldn't work with it. So I returned the card to WalMart*. I guess you have to call StarTech before purchasing with details about your motherboard and see if it will work for you. Either that or do what I did i.e. purchase it and return it if it doesn't work. Fortunately, Walmart* makes returning easy and hassle free. I gave it an 'average' rating because this page requires you to give it a rating but I really can't rate it because it never worked properly. It did not meet my expectations, thus the 'poor'. It costs more than twice the price of a comparable PCI-E card which will give you full USB 3.0 speed. I have one of those running on a Windows 7 machine. Nonetheless I was willing to pay $50 for it because of all the data transfer to external disk I have to do (several dozen GBs daily) so I rated the value 'fair'. There are very few PCI USB3.0 adapters available. I'm thinking the lesson is if you need to upgrade your USB ports to 3.0, you really need a newer computer with multiple PCI-E slots.

Product contains a power connector cable taht is TOO short. Bought this card to use in my new XPS 8300 and the power connector is TOO short. C'mon Dell step up your game. Supply LONGER power connectors.

Easy install, easy setup. Cut my backup almost in half from the USB 2.0.
