(I wish I had consulted with you two weeks ago before purchasing the 2+2 port HooToo card.) >Admittedly, I'm a bit skeptical about USB 3 given how long USB 2 took to >mature in the industry as a whole. As I've been saying, it all seems to work just fine on Linux. >If possible, I'd prefer SATA/eSATA or Ethernet for transferring large >amounts of data. Unfortunately, the HTPC I have in the livingroom doesn't have an eSATA port. (And there are no slots for any add-in cards or even space to put an eSATA socket/connector.) It does however have two (2) USB 3.0 built-in ports. P.S. Somebody on www.newegg.com said that that Vantec card contains a Renesas D720200A chipset. So I guess we can check that one off as "supported". Wish I had known that the VIA VL800 isn't. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
