Considering someone is selling these for $1 on ebay, looks like the
typical profit at many places is quite good on this item. I've seen
these for as much as $12 at retail stores. Good find!
Oh, and btw, I've had USB working nicely with 2 different brand MVP3
chipset boards now for years, no conflicts or problems to report as
yet, but I only use mice and webcam for USB.
