5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Linux!

Pros: Installed easily in the low profile case. Running Linux Mint 11 and the card works just fine. Hooked up the external hard drive and it was recognized right away.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: We have a lot of Firewire peripherals and I needed an inexpensive card to upgrade an old low profile computer case. This just slipped right in, was recognized by the Linux Mint and I was running! Good inexpensive fix.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy if you have Windows 7

Pros: Price

Cons: You get what you pay for. I tried multiple times to get this to work contacted the vendor and they said it should be a plug and play device. Every time I installed it. It would BSOD on me. I tried exchanging it and nothing still the same. It cost me more to send the original back then it did to purchase the card. Thumbs down.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Inserted the card into the slot. It fit perfectly. Windows 7 recognized immediately and installed driver(s). I bought this card to be able to upload video from digital video camera. It worked perfectly the first time. Price was great. I hope it lasts a long time. Couldn't be happier.

Cons: None that I know of yet.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not pay newegg to rush and order!

Pros: Great product. Make sure to note that this is a low profile card.

Cons: Do not pay Newegg extra $$ to process an order. I ordered this item Friday morning and paid to have the order rushed. Newegg sent me an email that the process had been completed according to their policy. Newegg took the $$ and then waited until monday to ship the item.

Other Thoughts: This is a Great product. Just DO NOT pay newegg anymore than the cost of the product.

1 out of 5 eggsTotally wrong

Pros: None unless you need a low profile card

Cons: No full size bracket included, does not have the pin header I need for front panel firewire.

Other Thoughts: Ten buck wasted and will have to spend another ten or more on a different card. My customer is still waiting. Not worth the RMA.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer, this is a low profile PCI card with the short bracket, if you need the standard size PCI bracket please contact us for a replacement. This card comes with an internal Firewire port but not an internal header. If you need an internal Firewire header you can purchase our model SD-VIA-FW1E1H. Please feel free to contact us at for any further questions.

5 out of 5 eggscheap firewire solution

Pros: Easy hardware installation, easy software installation that uses Windows drivers.

It plain works!

Cons: This is not a con but just a lesson that you have to read thoroughly before buying. I completely glossed over the fact that this was 'lower profile'. I purchased this for my tower, so I had to take off the bracket and install the card without a bracket. Duh. Don't be silly like me!

Other Thoughts: Used for transferring video from my DV camera
