Nice addition of USB-C to PC

This was a very useful card to have as an addition to my older PC. I found having this newer port to be a really useful addition as many new products are coming out in support of USB-C. The card was easy to install and the addition of the Low profile bracket was a nice option if you have one of the newer small form factor PCs I had no issues with this card and found that it performed as expected with very good speed and reliability. I did have on connector from another manufacture that did not like to work with this card, but I believe the problem was the connector and not the card as it work flawlessly with every other device I threw at it I would recommend this product I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review
