USB3.x PCI-Express cards in 2022?

Recommended Posts

I've spent some time looking through old threads but links to ebay and elsewhere are all expired/dead-ends.


Any suggestions for a self-powered, low-profile PCI-E USB3.x card for my N54L DS3617xs running Jun's 1.03b DSM 6.2.3update3?

I just discovered the rear ports on the N54L can sustain a higher transfer rate than the front ports. They're all listed as USB2.0 so something else is going on here.


Anyway, I get decent enough performance (2.6MB/s) ripping CDs through the back ports compared to the (1.0MB/s) of the front ports.


All this to say that I can do without USB3 for now.
