Recommended USB3 Expansion card for version 11.1.0.4 (revision 5127)

#1

Post by schutzpeter »

Hi

Can anyone recommend from experience a USB3 PCI-E expansion card that works with 11.1.0.4 (revision 5127)

Need to add USB3 to an older Motherboard so as to do faster backups to external drive. Not concerned about features or even the highest performance, rather best compatibility with relevant version of FreBSD.

Thanks

Had very bad experience with Transcend PCI-E/USB3 expansion board. No *nix support, did its job with driver for MS Windows 7 only. And in 10 version its support was broken.

Thanx for the response Snufkin. Will be aware of potential issues with Transcend then.
Cheers
