1 out of 5 eggsInconsistent Product

Pros: It's cheap. It sometimes works perfectly fine.

Cons: We use this card in a product we sell at my company. So we buy 10+ cards a year. The major con is that the product consistency is horrible. One card could work perfectly fine blasting 780x580 video at 14bit Mono and 25 frames per second and another crashes every couple of hours. Obviously, at 271 Mbps we're using quite a bit of the bandwidth of the interface, which may be part of the problem. But, some work perfectly fine.

The card is very picky about cables too.

If you want rock solid guaranteed performance, I would recommend to look elsewhere. If you get any errors, it's the probably the card, return it.

Other Thoughts: Wasted too much time trouble shooting issues with this card. Not worth the money we are saving.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

The issue of random disconnects may be caused by the card being loose in the PCIe slot it is in.

Confirm the profile bracket is screwed in properly and stable within the PCIe slot.

In the Motherboard BIOS settings confirm that PCIe frequency setting is set to Auto.

Try using a different Firewire cable as well if possible.

5 out of 5 eggsSImple Installation - Immediately Working

Pros: Works flawlessly with the Win 7-64 supplied driver. Windows lists it as a, "Texas Instruments 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller."

Gracefully fits into the PCI-Express x1 slot on the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5, without contacting the north bridge heat sink. There is approximately 1-2 mm clearance between the SYBA and the heat sink.

Cons: The half height case bracket is installed and has to be swapped out with the supplied standard height bracket.

Not using it, but keep in mind that the internal Firewire header is shared with the output on the back plane. Not sure which connector, but other people who need the internal connection have observed undesired behavior. If the plan is to use the internal and external connection simultaneously, please closely look at this.

Other Thoughts: I tried the Unibrain universal driver, but the My Book drive lost the ability to show HFS+ partitions using the TransMac software. Sometimes I have to move files from my MacBook Pro to Windows. Being unable to read HFS+ through Windows is a negative on the Unibrain implementation. After testing Unibrain, I removed it and Windows brought back its internal Texas Instruments driver. Works flawlessly again.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks With Flex Radio PowerSDR!

Pros: I have been using one of these with my Flex Radio 5000.
The TI chipset seems to be completly compatible with PowerSDR ver 2.5.3 running at 192k sampling rate. I have tried other card that would not perform nearly as well or at all.

Cons: Internal firewire 400 header is shared with an external port.
This did not matter to me since I only needed the external port.

Other Thoughts: This card is a real performer. I have heard not to use the supplied drivers and let windows install the driver.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!

Pros: Works great in my X79 MSI motherboard... using Windows 7 64-bit.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I needed a card with a header because my motherboard did not come with a 1394 header. So this worked out great... I can now plug my cable in the front of my computer when needed.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't use both external and internal ports

Pros: Has an internal header but...

Cons: I bought this card to hook the internal header to my case port. It turns out the having the internal header plugged in prevents the external ports from working. You can't use both. Besides that I have had a few freezes since installing it.

Other Thoughts: Not recommended.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

This card features an internal 1394A SHARED port. As you have come to find out, you can only use the external port or internal header at a time. We suggest you contact us next time you are considering purchasing one of our cards. Our friendly Support team can guide you and advise you on which product is right for you.

1 out of 5 eggsIncompatible with itself.

Pros: Cheap, 3 external ports, both low-profile and standard backplates included. Works in FreeBSD, Linux, and Windows. When I installed these cards in servers running FreeBSD 9.0, SuSE Linux 10.3, or Windows Storage Server 2008, I could successfully make a connection to a variety of Dell and Apple laptops running Ubuntu 11.04, PC-BSD 9.0, or OSX.

Cons: While one of these cards could talk to a laptop over firewire, it could not talk to another card of the same model. I tried running FreeBSD, Linux, and Windows on the servers but I was never able to see the other card on the firewire bus at all. I tried multiple brands of cable, different pairings of three cards, and each port on each card to no avail. I ended up returning these cards and buying some based on the LSI 643e chipset instead. Those cards worked on the first try.

Other Thoughts: The newegg listing says this is a Syba product, but the packaging was labeled "Best Connectivity." There was no reference to Syba anywhere on the packaging or in the documentation.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

It sounds like the second card might have been defective since it was not being detected. If this was the case, we would have gladly replaced the card for you free of charge.

Best Connectivity is a Syba manufactured brand aimed at producing cards with specific industry needs. This means that this card is backed by Syba's 3 year manufacture warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsIt just works - Mac and Windows

Pros: Mac compatible. Windows 7 compatible. It works great. Has worked through a number of OSX upgrades with no problems at all, and no need to reload driver. Excellent throughput. Never any crashes or other driver problems as far as I can tell, so it has been a solid performer.

Cons: Have to load the provided drivers - I don't really have a problem with that, though.

Other Thoughts: Get this one - it just works.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: The onboard FireWire ports blew out on my Mac Pro and it would have required a motherboard replacement to fix through Apple, but this card saved the day for a lot less money!

Works right out of the box with it's onboard EFI and therefore will do anything a built-in port would do.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Brilliant and cheap.
