2 out of 5 eggsDoes Not work on all computers...

Pros: Well it works on one computer.....

Cons: When i plug it into my custom built PC it freezes when it trys to connect to the internet and iv done everything under the sun to try to fix it uninstalling drivers then reinstalling new ones, installing different drivers, and even seeing if it was a program interfering with it by running only the essentials and that didn't work either. i called the manufacturer many times and it came down to it just wont work with your system. if anyone can help that would be awesome. im running window 7 ult, z58 SLI3 mobo, i7 950 cpu, corsair dominator 3x2gb ram, raid 0 QTY.2 WD black 1TB HDD, and 1 external mybook external HDD.

Other Thoughts: im only giving it two eggs because it doesn't work on ALL computers.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

It might be the driver that is giving you issues. The highest Windows version supported by this card is Vista.

You did not mention the one computer which works--running on which Windows version?

Please contact us again and we can work on it more with you. Can you please test the following before contacting us again:

1. Test the card in a different PCI slot
2. Do a Windows update from Microsoft

We apologize for any issues that you are having. As you know we are more than happy to provide our customers with a hassle free exchange when a product is defective.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great card, Firewire is way WAY faster than USB2. Don't bother with using USB2 for hard drives, it's just too slow. Firewire 800 kills it!! All my drives are Firewire 800 now.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 AMD64, this card was plug-n-play, worked right out of the box, no need to install anything or tweak anything.

5 out of 5 eggsSweeeeet! Syba!

Pros: Had almost a year now. Plugged in a firewire 800 CF card reader and DL a 4gb CF card to PC in 3 MINUTES! it used to take almost an HOUR!!! I'll NEVER go back to USB 2... Simple installation in Windows 7. Seems like I'm at Mikey D's cuz (I'm Lovin' it)!

Cons: NONE, No Way, No How.

Other Thoughts: Just DO it! Pull the trigger on this one. Cheap and super effective.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Has fire wire, and did what i needed

Cons: would be really nice if they had pins on the cards so you could put your front case panels on there

Other Thoughts: Probably wouldn't get this again, might try a different card next time if there is a next time

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Not a lot to say, it does what it is supposed to do. I'm using it with a 1.5tb external hard disk for disk imaging backups of my primary desktop.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The Unibrain.com drivers do work. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.

1 out of 5 eggsWhy does this even exist for Windows?

Pros: None.

Cons: This DOES NOT WORK with modern Windows OS's (Vista or 7). Apparently, no one knows how to write a FW 800 driver at Microsoft and it gets limited to FW 400. WASTE OF MONEY!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

This card will use the default driver embedded in Windows Vista, if Windows cannot find the driver, please do a Windows Update to download the latest service pack. Besides, you can download a third party driver at Unibrain.com. 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.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: This card has been in service for 3 years. I run back ups to my LaCie drive using 1394b, and 1394a to my Epson R1800 printer. No problems ever.

Cons: I could use another 1394a port.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but expensive

Pros: Definitely worked well in Ubuntu 8.10, Vista Home Premium, XP Pro, and the Windows 7 beta.

No issues at all with it.

Cons: Way overpriced, I shouldn't have to pay $40 for 3 firewire ports...

5 out of 5 eggsIt works with XP

Pros: Much faster card reader performance compared to Firewire 400 or USB2

Cons: The driver installation is a bit confusing. XP recognized the PCI card immediately without any new driver needed, however the compact flash card reading speed was no faster than my existing Firewire 400 ports. I put in the driver disk and found the setup program in the TI folder as mentioned in the instructions. The program was not named setup as stated, but was easy to recognize anyway. It installed a new driver and told me to reboot, which I did. After rebooting, XP reported two new non-functioning networks, but gave me the option to disable them, which I did and they have not come back since, even after rebooting again. No problems since then.

Other Thoughts: A good match for the Sandisk Extreme 4 CF cards and Sandisk Extreme Firewire card reader. This reader comes with both a 400 and an 800 firewire cable. The Syba PCI card comes with neither.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK

Pros: None

Cons: Would not work with XP. Installed drivers from the website and from cd and still not working.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for choosing Syba product. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please make sure the card is fully seated on the PCI slot before you turn on your computer. Sometimes to avoid memory or IRQ conflict, you might need to try a different PCI to get it work.

This device is Plug and Play under Windows 2000, Server 2003, XP and Vista, there’s no driver required. If your Windows is not pre-loaded with the default drivers, please download the latest service pack from Windows Update.

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 827
