I am using Windows 7 64bit and Installed the software from the mini CD (the last folder in the list on the miniCD). Then I put the card in the ExpressCard slot and it installed with no problems. It is about twice as fast as a USB 2.0 port when using a USB 3.0 device (hard drive or memory stick) but of course the actual speed depends on the RPMs of the hard drive or the read-write speed of the USB 3.0 memory stick. The Startech 3.0 is about 1% faster than a USB 2.0 port when using a USB 2.0 memory stick or hard drive. The device fits flush inside the ExpressCard slot and does not move once installed in my Toshiba Satellite 500 laptop. It can pop out when you disconnect the USB cable is all. I am happy with the purchase.
