CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
Vantec has successfully come up with a low cost, easy to implement solution for adding two high-speed USB 3.0 ports to your system. This little PCI-e card takes only a few minutes to install and provides a hefty increase in performance over the old USB 2.0. Pair it with a USB 3.0 enclosure and you'll be well on your way to speedy file transfers that rival the speeds of the SATA II interface. Most all USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices will still work with this card as well, so you're basically adding two ports to your system that will accept both old and new USB devices.
Stay tuned for a review of Vantec's NexStar 3 Superspeed USB 3.0 enclosure, as it compliments this card very well.
