    Some are faster than others, based on different controllers usered, but I don't think the difference is enough to worry about.

    That ASUS U3S6 is discontinued and hard to locate.
    It is a first generation card anyway.

    ^This^ is pretty true.
    Just get one with a low price and decent warranty.
    And, if, USB 3.0... it should have a power connector on the card for either, SATA connector or molex connector... make sure to get one that fits your needs.
