I never got around to resolving this problem under Linux. After I’d pointed a fully updated installation of Windows 7 Professional bit to the drivers, it configured the host adapter and immediately failed to configure the root ports on the card. The Windows backup result is much slower due to the increased overhead created by having to find, open and copy many smaller files. A quick trip through the Device Manager once again rectified this. The power connection issue is the only potential show stopper I’ve seen in my adventures with this adapter. It’s probably reporting the wrong data to the graphics driver. Obviously this approach isn’t for everyone, but it will work if you need to be up and running right now.

The extra wiring and “Molex” connector came from a Y adapter upon my realizing that I either did not have or could not find a defunct PC power supply from which I could steal some wiring and a connector.
Perhaps I will try again in future. I’m sure this is really the cheap-o display’s fault.
Initial driver installation was a little less than straightfoward. Random sellers on eBay, especially high volume sellers located overseas, are not that likely to offer any sort of meaningful warranty coverage on their products.

I did run a few tests, starting with a backup made using the built in Windows 7 backup utility. After I’d pointed a fully updated installation of Windows 7 Professional bit to the 122a, it configured the host adapter and immediately failed to configure the root ports on the card.
Backing up around 55GB of data including the operating system took about 20 minutes. In my case, these were available from a nearby Wal-Mart store. If you’re willing to venture out to the land of eBay, you can find cheaper options with more ports and different chipsets from more well known 1022s longtime players in the USB host adapter market, such as NEC.
I had plans to test the adapter under Linux. I tested a number of USB 1. I’m not big on trying to benchmark things, roketu do I imagine that I’m patient enough. Click to see the large version. A wiring error could blow up the expansion card and quite possibly your motherboard as well. Other auto parts retailers probably carry them as well. At this time I don’t have any other USB 3.
I never got around to resolving this problem under Linux. And of course, I take no responsibility if you manage to blow up your computer or harm rocketk while doing this.
I have read and been told that Highpoint Technology is particularly unresponsive to technical support and warranty requests, so you may well end up just replacing the adapter yourself if it quits working. A quick trip through the Device Manager once rpcketu rectified this.
Of course, the card didn’t work until I’d connected power see abovebut once that was done, everything seemed to work fine. If you have a PC that does not include any “Molex” power connectors, plan to purchase an adapter when you buy this expansion card or be ready to splice into your PC’s power supply wiring.
Crunching the numbers on this gives a roughly 45 megabyte per second transfer rate. I would take this to be an indication of the drive emptying its cache while it waits on more data to come in from the USB 2.
The only USB 3. Connecting the Seagate external hard drive over USB 2. I’m unavoidably biased in that I paid a dollar for mine and got lucky. I don’t own any solid state drives at this time. Permission is granted to reproduce this material or to use any part of it in other creations, so long as the following terms are met: I’m pleased to rockeut that the card itself appears to work very well once the drivers are installed.
As usual, Linux had other ideas when it smartly placed roxketu cheap-o 17″ LCD panel into a mode it couldn’t support. Even so, I’d generally recommend this card to anyone who is looking to enter the world of USB 3. Other people who have benchmarked things in more detail than I have found it compares reasonably well to USB 3.
