Does what is says
By RideAgainstTheWind ,
Had a pcmcia mobile data card, but my new laptop only had an express port. This was the cheapest adapter (USB or express port) I could find, and it works as described. My data card sticks out a bit now, but its better than having to spend more money to buy a new mobile card. I notice no obvious difference in data speeds, though I haven't ran any tests to verify. I haven't had the adapter very long so I can't report on reliability, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
