    what is the topology? I assume the PCI card is a "root hub" and that there is a generic hub to each of the ports and am looking for more details on how each port is connected ?

    An inexpensive card that works very well with Ubuntu Linux
    This card was shipped fast, works well with Ubuntu 8.04 Linux, and was very inexpensive. That is why I gave it 10 out of 10. It doesn't say it supports Linux, but it works with Ubuntu without having to install any linux kernel modules. I would recommend it to anyone.

    High failure rate
    We ordered 60 of these for our school to allow our Dell GX240s to have USB 2.0. As we made our way through campus installing them, some computers started having problems (freezing, taking 2-3 minutes to respond after moving the mouse, showing 100 unknown items in device manager, refusing to boot, etc.) As soon as we took the cards out, everything was back to normal. We found that about 1 in 3 worked during the week that we had them installed, so we ended up just removing all of the cards as a preventative measure.

    Excellent Product at an Excellent Price - but it is just the price that is cheap - the card is very well constructed, and my Windows XP Computer instantly recognized the USB 2.0 controller card, and all the available ports !!! The transfer speeds seem to be SUPER when compared to the USB 1.1 ports that originally came with my Computer, and only lag behind a little when compared to my Firewire ports.

    Card was delivered super fast. Installed both the hardware and software in about 5 minutes. My USB performance increased by 70% over what I had before. Worked great!

    Easy to install. Small form factor. Plug-and-play worked perfectly (Vista Ultimate 64-bit).

    Works as advertised
    I run a fedora linux machine and this kind of hardware can sometimes be a bit of pain. I turned the machine off, plugged it in, turned it on, it worked. I had a few external hard disks up and running in no time. No hassle, no drivers required, it literally just worked when I plugged it in.
