Usb 3.0 card
The unit was sold at a very good price. It installed easily, worked perfectly with no unanticipated problems. I would buy from this manufacturer again.
By Elya Vidal
Nope!
I buy a lot of rosewill products. They're usually pretty good. Not this one. Going in and out of connection. Issues with power management. Mediocre speeds. Returned. Windows 7 x64. A+ pc tech with 20 years experience.

Rosewill 2-port usb3 express card rc-505
Great 2-port usb3 pci express card rc-505, great price,fast transfer, no problems and works great from the beginning.I would recommend.
By Dominic Chan
Decent usb 3.0
Not the fastest usb 3.0 pci card but for the price it definite is fast enough. Would advise to make sure that your power supply can add power to the card so it can transfer faster.
By Harvey Ellis
Simple and it workes
I installed this board and the included drivers w/o a hitch. Usb3 speed is very similar to esata speeds. I had tried a similar, rocketfish brand name, usb3 board from bestbuy and it simply would not work. Live and learn.I'm happy with this purchase.

Rosewill 2-port usb 3.0 pci express card rc-505
This was just what i needed to bring a c2d box up to modern standards of a 3.0 usb, works on low budget boards without 3.0 usb. Very easy to install.I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a board needing the newest usb standards
By Pia Van Maastricht
Works for me!
This was a gift to a friend. This is a simple upgrade to usb 3.0 on an older desktop. This works well with his external 3.0 hard drive. He was pleased with the gift.
By David Schubert
Good value, works great!
I bought this rosewill usb 3.0 add on card, so i can transfer files quickly with my 4tb usb 3.0 external drive. It is much faster than using my usb 2.0 ports. My computer didn't have any problems with the driver. I bought another brand of usb 3.0 add on card from another store and my computer did not like the driver - it cause my computer to reboot instead of shutdown. No problem with the rosewill 2-port usb 3.0 pci express card rc-505 whatsoever.
By Sadie Robinson
It worked as advertized
Using windows 8.1, and did not have to use the drivers that were supplied with the card. The default drivers worked with no issues,
By Grace Davies
Works as expected.
Easy install and setup. Drivers installed easily. Seems to have fast bandwidth. Replace another brand that kept disappearing from devices every time computer went to sleep. Not good to have to reinstall drivers every day. This one, i have only installed drivers once and seems to always be available when computer wakes.
