quick easy install

Ordered this usb card because the onboard USB ports of someone's computer i built 6 years ago fried.

Installed this card and it worked directly out of the box, no installation drivers from a cd required.

Impressed with the product,

not so impressed with canada post express who created unnecessary aggravation and confusion by claiming in tracking information the product was received successfully BEFORE I EVEN GOT IT. They claimed i had to get in contact with ncix about the package whereabouts, even though its not ncix's responsibility for the tracking information to be falsified. Fortunately it showed up shortly after discovering this

Good cards I really like them
none I can think of
I was making my new machine and having many usb ports isn't a bad thing. Everything takes a port from you. Also it's better than a USB hub because you don't need to plug it in and it clutters the room up (probably would have crappy LED on it too).

Definitely buy these cards.

Plug and Play, Easy Setup. Windows 7 detected it on start up and intalled the drivers. Had to reboot my computer a couple times before it worked properly but in the end it did.
Ran into a couple errors with the drivers, but was solved by restarting the computer a couple times
Nice and cheap, Easy to setup. Works like a charm. Great deal

No driver install needed
Easy to setup
Internal port doesn't seem to work for me..
I bought this as I was running out of USB ports on my desktop. With mouse, keyboard, bluetooth adaptor, RF remote receiver, headset, and webcam plugged in constantly, I didn't have much left for external harddrives or usb keys. Adding one of these helped alleviate that problem, and for the 8 bucks I paid it was definitely worth it.

My only issue so far is that I can't seem to get the internal port working. I wanted to put my bluetooth adaptor in the internal port, and found it didn't detect it. Won't even detect a usb key. Not a huge issue as I've got more than enough ports now, but still a bit annoying...

Lifetime warranty
Simple installation
My brother has an older case/motherboard that has messed up USB ports. He can't even get external 2.5" USB hard drives to properly install and work. For < $10, he has 4 fully functioning USB 2.0 ports now. Very easy to install... Win7 recognized it and it worked right away.

Adds extra USB ports to our machine
USB plugs stick out a little too much for my liking
The device adds extra USB ports to a computer. I haven't had any problems with it and my only complaint is that the USB plugs stick out a little too much after they get plugged into the card.

pretty cheap
plus do not enter fully!
Well, i didn't like it because your usb plugs don't enter fully inside them, so they stay like 3/4 outs, and can easily fell out.

The card is cheap and easy to install.
For 10 bucks? None!
I needed to get USB 2.0 support on an old OEM machine with an 850 Mhz Celeron to use as a security webcam server. There was nothing I could do to get the cams I bought working properly on the built in USB 1.1 ports, just terrible, inconsistent performance.

I decided to pop in this ~$10 card and give it another go. After removing the buggy Logitech drivers and having another go with the default XP SP3 drivers, the cams work flawlessly and motion capture beautifully.

StarTech makes some useful products. I also got the USB 2.0 Active Extensions, which I'll try out and review also.
