5 out of 5 eggsWorks nice

Pros: Works well, have had it for a few years now.

Cons: For some reason XP seems to think that the USB is not hi-speed. Haven't figured out why, but when I run Fedora, it works at hi-speed.

Other Thoughts: 1.25GHz Athlon XP, Gigabyte 2004 RZ motherboard, 640 MB of RAM, ATI Radeon Graphics card, 80+16 GB hds.

4 out of 5 eggsInitial problems but finally worked

Pros: I installed this along with a Siig USB/FireWire front hub in my Dell OptiPlex GX270 (2003). Works well.

Cons: Good product, but needed tweaking on install. If you are running XPsp2, then you don't need included drivers. I installed in one slot and XP didn't recognize it. I uninstalled the root hubs in device mgr. and after rebooting, this slot finally recognized the card and the Siig front port hub.

Other Thoughts: The first card I got was not Ver.1 and went bad. RMA'd to Belkin with a NIB replacement arriving a week later. (good work Belkin!) Belkin sent me ver.1 card and finally everything works up to speed.

1 out of 5 eggsNot so good...

Pros: Two external ports for both Firewire and USB 2.0; made by Belkin

Cons: Doesn't work. Fully secured in the PCI slot, everything is as it should be. But on boot, the computer fails to boot up. This is the second stage of my problems, the first being that the computer seemed to work fine, but my camcorder was not being controlled properly through the card.

Other Thoughts: For now, this card has not worked at all for me. I will submit another review if/when I get it to work.

Newegg and UPS delivered this product 1 day (ONE DAY!) after I ordered it. Great service on their parts.

Manufacturer Response:

rockerest,
From the description of your issue above it definitely seems to me that your hardware is incompatible with this upgrade card. It is likely that your computer may be too old or your PCI buss is not fast enough to take this kind of upgrade. I would be willing to guess that if you took this to a service tech, this is the conclusion he/she would come to. We do our best to reach a standard of interoperability across hardware configurations but if we were to make it work perfectly with every configuration out there both our cost and yours would be significantly higher. In the future, before you post a review with any product you have had a problem with, contact tech support.
Ours is 1 800 2BELKIN x2263, you can call anytime we are in the office.
