So I'm looking into adding USB 3.0 to my toughbook (CF-30F), Expresscard looks like the only route. So here's some questions I don't have the answers for:
1: What brand should I look for or stay away from?
2: Would I be able to close the MP door if a flush-mount card is inserted? Like leave the card in when not using it.
3: How much heat do these cards put out? Don't want to burn out the card or overheat my toughbook from using the card too much. I had a USB 2.0 card in my CF-28 and that thing got red hot during use.
4: How's the power consumption with these cards while running on battery?
Looking forward to some good news hopefully not bad news!
