Question:

I have installed many usb add in cards, from different manufactures, but I do not really have a preference for chipset.

I did notice that today I installed one of these NEC chipset PCI cards
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815124008

and the throughput from a usb2.0 hard drive was around 6mb/s

I did not have time to stay and complete bench marks (although I would have)
but the onboard usb seemed faster..

I have generally seen better transfer speeds through a PCI add in card for USB throughput, but it could have been a slow HDD controller I suppose.

Whats your preference chipset on a USB 2.0 Add in card?

NEC vs VIA.
