1 out of 5 eggsTrouble

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Flaky.

Other Thoughts: I just removed this card from my system after about six months of trying to troubleshoot another problem which looked unrelated.

Turns out that this card had been dying a very slow death for more than a year, and once I got it out of my system, I was able to see that it had been causing all kinds of problems since the day I installed it.

I cursed this card and then tossed it in the trash.

You get what you pay for.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We would love to send you a tested replacement card if you can provide us with the following answers:
1. Has the card ever worked? At least once?
2. What is your Windows version? Did you install the driver for it, or did Windows automatically pick up the driver and install it for you?
3. Have you ever seen this device (Firewire ports) in the device manager?
4. What applications have you tried using the Firewire port? If it is for video file transferring, what video editing software are you using?

Contact us asap and we would like to workout a solution for you

1 out of 5 eggsworked with xp, not win7

Pros: Worked with Windows XP

Cons: Won't work with Windows 7. Plug in the card and windows 7 locks up when it detects the new hardware. Running an Asus p5b mobo. IRQ conflict perhaps? I've tried different slots. Worked great under Windows XP for years. Purchased 10/9/2007

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for purchasing our SYBA products. We are sorry to hear that the product has stopped functioning as it should be. you have to reinstall the drive manually by using windows provide drive. it still don't work, it just maybe the card is defective.

1 out of 5 eggsBunk card?

Pros: Cheap. Newegg ships FAST. Ports felt solid.

Cons: Computer wouldn't boot with card seated properly. The only thing that I could do to make the machine boot was to remove this card from its slot.

Other Thoughts: I'm not the most super-expert guy when it comes to computers, but I'd rate myself a 4/5 without a second thought. I exhausted every possible option to get my computer to boot with this card in place and nothing worked. Yes, I was putting it in the right slot. The only cause I can think of is a malfunctioning card. Newegg has been wonderful facilitating a refund.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for any inconvenience. Most likely there is an IRQ conflict between the card and your system components, by moving the card to a different slot might solve your problem. All of our products come with at least 3 years warranty. Please don't hesitate to contact us at support-us@syba.com if you have any problem or question.

Regards,
Syba Customer Service
