My dad's PC got a jolt which knocked out the motherboard's 6 USB ports and also the network adapter port. We bought this PCI USB card to try to give him back USB capability and this card did the trick. NO problems, just opened the box and inserted the card. Also, BUY.COM shipped the item so fast it made my head spin! =)

I've installed at least 4 of these in various computers, and they just work great. In my own computer, I'm using all 4 USB inputs with no problems. I have an Epson scanner, an Epson printer, a Sandisk 8-in-1 card reader, and a SimpleTech 120GB external hard drive all plugged into it. Windows XP and 2000 recognized the card and installed the drivers in a matter of seconds after booting up.
