Well worth the added cost for independent buses
This card is awesome and works flawlessly. I plugged it into a Vista box, and Windows configured it automatically without me having to install any software (the box does not even come with a disk). The card has four independent 2.0 serial buses, each with a single, external USB 2.0 port. Additionally, one of the four serial buses also has an internal USB header-connector shared on the same serial bus as the external USB port. I have three Sewell HDDeck USB-to-HDMI adapters connected to this same card. That is only possible because of independent buses, with each bus having a full, dedicated bandwidth.
