Performance

Be careful not to be pulled in by the words 'mac plug and play' in the title of this product or the fact that it says it is mac compatable. It only works with os 10.2.8-10.2.9, a very narrow window of time for macs and not at all current. I discovered this too late and only from the site of the manufacturer when I had problems using it. Buy.com should be more specific in their descriptions. It is misleading to say 'mac compatable' and list all of the compatable windows based os's specifically. Oh well, just thought I could save someone else the headache.

Card works great. Best overall price I found. There were no problems during install, WinXP found it an installed drivers and it's been working great ever since. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a USB2 card.

easy and cheap

on 11/28/2007

Card was easy to set up, just install and turn on the PC and let XP do the rest. Used on an older machine that had a mini HD hooked up and took for ever to boot or copy to. After installing it boots quickly and saving files to the mini HD goes quite fast. This is a cheap performance enhancement that is easy to do. Read More
