Add on USB2 laptop cards

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an older Powerbook G4 with usb1. I've managed to do without usb2 for a while. Do these add on usb2 laptop cards give you actual usb2 speeds? Can they handle power hungry devices like external drives and burners? Do they need to be powered? Like I need another power brick These card may look cheap but are expensive. $55 Can. Do they live up to their claims?

NEC chips are native to OS X. they don't claim mac support tho, but macsales does.

both options are under $20 (before shipping).
