|NEC Chipset NEC720101, USB 2.0, 6x (5 Ext. + 1 Int.) Ports PCI Card|
The USB ports on my PC stopped working. Inserting this card enabled me to connect my USB devices again, extending the life of my PC. As usual, very reasonable price and fast delivery from Buy.com. I am a very happy customer!
Good product at a good price4/21/2009
Bought this for my old PC running Windows2000 Pro. The original computer only has a couple of USB 1.1 ports, which are fine for things like mouse and keyboard, but for other things like external hard drive and DVD burner, it simply was WAAAAAY too slow. Poped in this UBS2.0 card, system automatically recognized it, and within a few minutes, I had five extra high speed ports. Due to the old CPU and memory speed, the data speed is not that fast, but still, I easily get 5-8 times improvements. I'm also glad that I chose the 5-port version over the 4-port version, for a couple of $ more. You cannot have too many USB ports.
