ASUS U3S6 2x USB3.0 2x SATA 6GB/S PCI-E4 Add On Card

Posted

Pros: 2 x USB 3.0 ports and 2 x SATA 6.0 ports in one card!

Cons: Potential bottleneck if all 4 ports are in use at the same.

I did miss buying the card in 2010... I got to buy a new one recently.

 

Partly due to ASUS' poor advertisement on its compatibility for the mobos.

 

Actually, this card works on ANY mobos that has either a PCIE x4, x8, or x16 slot.

 

My ASUS PRO Turbo only has two PCIE x16 slots... so I need to sacrifice the black one.

 

It's not exactly a bargain buy for me... but fair price.

 

I can now consider buying products with USB 3 or SATA 6 interface, and get close to expected speed.

 

Let's hope this card will last for years!

 

P.S.  This card interface is running at 5Gbps. Boot in time was around 18 seconds on a freshly installed Windows 7. Now, after a year of use, the boot in time is around 22 seconds.
