Performance

This card lives up to the speed of USB 2.0 - which I use for an external CD-RW. It may be obsolete on new notebooks with all of the models containing USB 2.0 ports. In the instructions they mention that you may need an (optional) AC adapter because the laptop won't provide enough power. This was the case for me as my laptop (Dell Inspiron 5000) froze and crashed if I did a hot swap without the AC adapter. Strange enough the card worked without the adapter if I did a fresh boot with the card already in place.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8100 running WinXP Pro. The set up was very easy; just inserted the card and Windows recognized and installed the drivers for it, took less than a minute. I connected a USB 2.0 external hard drive and did a transfer test. I was able to transfer at a rate of about 10MegaBytes per second (775MB in 75s), which is the same for my desktop with USB 2.0. My laptop USB 1.1 connection has a transfer rate of less than 1MegaByte per second. The card is small and easily fits into my laptop carrying case. Overall I am very happy with the card and think that the price is resonalble.
