I have a great home server that is a bit older (Q6600 cpu, no USB 3.0 ports). Didn't have a PCI-e 1x slot, but the great thing about PCI-e is I am able to use it in the full-length 16x slot. Easy install, coupled with an Amazon Basics 4-port USB 3.0 hub and a couple of new drives (Seagate USB 3.0 1GB, SanDisk 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive, Corsair Voyager USB 3.0 16GB, etc).
The hub has AC power, which is something I've recommended for forever. This card doesn't have a separate power plug, so if you're going to use these USB 3.0 ports to do heavy charging or plug in items (like Force Feedback racing wheels or flight controls), you'll definitely want a powered hub. The Amazon Basics 4-port is cheap and perfect match for this.
Long story: I have an older motherboard with an early 3rd party USB 3.0 chipset I'm using as a file server with external USB 3.0 drives. The buggy chipset disconnected the drives all the time, requiring the controller to be disabled and re-enabled, or the system to be rebooted. Annoying.
So, I was looking for a reasonably-priced addon card. I saw this one had a chipset by NEC/Renesas, who have reputation for making reliable controllers. No problems installing it on Windows 10, and I haven't had a single disconnect in a month of up-time.
Short story: Works great and reasonable price. Recommended if you need a couple USB 3.0 ports and have a PCIe 1x slot.
Works perfect. I have an older motherboard (5 years old) and i was trying to get Kinect V2 to work on my system. I bought another PCI card which also used external power, but the Kinect V2 still did not work. This card DID WORK! Now I am able to use Kinect V2 SDK on my system perfectly. Having just bought another card, i saw that by comparison, this card feels high quality in your hand with solid components. Things click in place easily.
