Hi,

I don't see any active components, so I believe it is still PCIe (just via an USB Connector)

Regards,
 Michael!

Can these things possibly work?

If they do, it seems to me that this would be a great way to
add additional general purpose PCIe slots to any computer that has
USB ports, which nearly all do these days.  If no driver is needed,
they should work with any OS.  Obviously there is a speed limitation,
but many applications can live with that.

Sounds too good to be true.  Am I missing something?
