I received this product free of charge to review. I tested it with three different operating systems; Windows XP, Vista and Ubuntu Linux 12.04. It came with a drivers CD and molox power to SATA power adapter.
This card is quite small and light weight. I used two different computers. On both machines this card was so short that I could not hook up all my SATA devices at once, because they would not reach this PCI Express card.
However, it is possible that an included molox to SATA power connector might fix this issue. Other than that I have no complaints about this product. I had no problems installing this PCI express card.
On both Windows XP and Vista, installation went flawless. I installed drivers from an included CD and device manager reported a properly installed device. I quickly bench mark tested this card with HD tune.
I used a 16 gigabyte USB 2.0 flash drive to test. On both Windows XP and Vista on average speeds were faster with Inateck's PCI express card versus an onboard USB port. What really impressed me was that this card worked out of a box on a machine running Ubuntu Linux 12.04.
Interested in more information about this Inateck KTU3FR 4P PCI express card? You can watch my video review of this product.
