However, this technology has been used since 2010, development and tuning of drivers of the supported devices is still in progress. Your computer or laptop must be equipped with USB 3.0 interface to make use of all of its benefits. The chipset ensures its trouble-free function and latest available drivers must be available.
Dear customers, we have realized, you may encounter problems when installing or using our USB 3.0 devices.

Some motherboards are known for their incorrect function with Renesas (NEC) USB 3.0 driver due to wrong PCI Express bus clocking. In this case, you have to contact the manufacturer of the motherboard to get the latest BIOS update. According to our experience, the manufacturers of the motherboards are aware of these problems and they usually provide patched BIOS that will solve the problems.
Other problems when connecting to USB 3.0 interface may be caused by low-quality cables that are very interference-sensitive. In this case, you may often encounter problems when connecting the devices or interruption of the data transfer between the device and the computer.
Other problem: Wireless devices (network or e.g. Microsoft mouse + keyboard set ) stop working when my USB 3.0 dock (HDD or Hub device) is connected. Why?
Answer: USB 3.0 can sometimes interfere with 2.4 GHz wireless devices if they are placed in close proximity.
Solution: Wireless devices should be located away from the USB 3.0 ports and cables. Try moving the wireless devices to a USB port away from the USB 3.0 ports or cables. Use USB extension cord for connecting of Wireless device.
