usb 3.0 expresscard support for Acer Aspire 5520

brk Member Posts: 2



I have an Acer Aspire 5520 notebook.


I wonder is it possible to use an expresscard 34/54 to use my usb 3.0 pen drive in high speeds?


In the manual usb 2.0 is mentioned , however there wasn't usb 3.0 that time.


If I buy a usb 3.0 expresscard , would I be able to use a usb 3.0 pen drive in usb 3.0 mode in my Acer Aspire 5520 notebook ?

If I will get the same usb 2.0 speed, it is meaningless then...


Please advise,

    We have not tested USB 3.0 device speeds through the express card slot, so we can not guarantee compatibility. I do not think you would be able to get USB 3.0 speeds that you are wanting.
