Brando has introduced an ExpressCard device that adds two USB 3.0 ports to your laptop. The maximum bandwidth of ExpressCard is 2.5Gbps, less than the 4.8Gbps supported by USB 3.0 but still faster than the 480Mbps offered by USB 2.0. The product also includes a USB power cable, this is necessary because ExpressCard can't deliver enough power.

Great 50% of USB 3.0 speed. Better than nothing, but still painful to see.
Could we possibly count on Intel to "innovate" (yeah Intel remember that word?) and actually include USB 3.0 in the PM55 chipset that is brand new and came out AFTER the final USB 3.0 spec was ratified?
No, Intel couldn't manage that. So you have to count on products like the above, while Intel puts out advertising about how much inventive prowess they have, and yet can't even seem to tie their own shoelaces regarding USB 3.0.
It's been 8-9 years since USB 2.0. I guess Intel couldn't get a clue in that amount of time.
