1 out of 5 eggsDidn't load driver-returned product

Pros: I was able to return this product for a refund.

Cons: I have a new machine with Windows 7 (completely updated) also paid "Data Doctors" to load everything on my computer. They were unable to find a driver with this device. Tech support for this product was not helpful- they recommended that I return it!

Other Thoughts: Do you want to risk it?

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, bit too long...

Pros: Used this card for a few hundred hours of video transferring on my computer and it worked great. Windows XP immediately recognized the card. I'm not going to need more than 2 of the ports but it comes with 3, with one internal if i'm ever going to do something inside my computer.... like build a fish tank!

Cons: The metal on the back was too long for my pci slot, so I ended up bending it back. Took a little bit and dropped the card by accident, but it still works great. It was annoying enough to take an egg off.

Other Thoughts: Works great, inexpensive. Doesn't do 800 mb/s..

-Plus the firewire cable it came with came in handy because it would have been close to $10 alone at the store.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat cheap firewire

Pros: It powers my audio interface over firewire, and it has a port on the inside (which I might mod my presonus little interface into the shuttle case in place of dvd drive slot #2). No drivers needed either, XP instantly recognized and I was up and running on first boot(with this card).

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I saw another presonus audio user review, and this works great with those(probably all audio interfaces).

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Works perfectly. No problems at all.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: This card is being used in a DAW at a semi-professional recording studio. It's connected to a Presonus Firepod with ZERO problems.

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive solution

Pros: Easy installation (it's PCI), and it's an inexpensive solution to adding a firewire port when I got a camcorder and needed one. I also needed the firewire cable, and instead of paying shipping for both I got both in the same package. Not bad, I think.

Cons: None really. The delivery guy tossed the package in a pot filled with soil... not that it makes a difference, just I didn't see it there until later.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure why they bothered putting in the disc for Ulead Videostudio 5.0 (from around 2000-2001). No eggs taken for that, it just seems like a waste.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card for the money

Pros: Great price point, works as expected, very easy to install. I needed a firewire card with a VIA chipset to work with some audio processing hardware and this card works great.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: 3 + 1 Firewire ports that are horizontal, not vertical.

Cons: I had problems installing the drivers for this card. I inserted it into one PCI slot and it wouldn't recognize the drivers so I switched it into my other PCI slot. It recognized the drivers but didn't quite install the drivers for some reason so I placed it back into the original PCI slot. After doing this, it worked fine!

Other Thoughts: I did not have the problem of physically fitting the card into the PCI slot. The face-plate was just right for me. The card works fine, but you may encounter driver and physical card installation issues. Your choice if you want to save a few bucks to deal with minor problems or not.
