USB 3.0 - the fastest USB interface for portable storage devices has been out this year but not many motherboards still support this new interface. We have already tested a portable hard drive sporting this new interface and know that this interface is a true successor of the USB 2.0 and has the capability of making the older interface obsolete. Since not many motherboards support this interface yet, ECS has launched the U3N2 USB 3.0 card so that you can instantly upgrade your existing computers to USB 3.0.
The tiny card is small enough to fit in a small form factor HTPC cabinet using the smaller low profile bracket bundled along. ECS has been known to be an innovator of technologies and has shown it time and again (remember the SIMA cards that allowed certain ECS motherboards to use Intel as well as AMD processors?). Yet another noteworthy thing about ECS is that their products are priced comparatively lower, and we expect the same in this case as well. Read on to find out how well the card performs.
ECS has provided just about everything we need with the card and even more. They have even provided a smaller low profile bracket to replace the larger one, so that you can use this card in a small form factor HTPC cabinet. The driver CD contains the drivers for this card.
