2 out of 5 eggsfirewire pci express card

Pros: Easy to install.Easy refund from newegg.

Cons: WIN 10 did not recognised it.Tried for at least 4 hours but impossible to have a result.Called syba and told me to download other driver with no results.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for the issues you've experienced with this Firewire express card.

Our Firewire controller cards rely on the generic drivers that are built into Windows to function properly. However, Microsoft removed default support for Firewire devices with Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Fortunately, they published a driver that adds support in Windows 8 (and indirectly Windows 10). Please see link for more information. Your device should work once this driver is installed.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2970191

For future reference, please contact our support team to assist you by emailing support@sybausa.com. We're not sure if you got in contact with us directly, as we would of also given you the information mentioned above.
Our technical support team is available to help 9am-5pm M-F. Feel free to contact us during those business hours.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.
- Regards, SYBA CST 20160518

5 out of 5 eggsIt Works as advertised

Pros: Works perfectly. Plugged it in, plugged in the power, turned on the PC, booted it up, and Win7 recognized it and installed the drivers. Didn't have to do anything. Started using my multichannel DAC fed from it immediately.

Has a very silent background when listening to music using my outboard firewire DAC. Very nice. Seems extremely stable. No dropouts or strange sounds. Listening to Pink Floyd Momentary Lapse of Reason "Dogs of War" right now.

This is not a sound card.

But you can feed a fire-wire sound-card or workstation DAW or DAC with this fire-wire unit. It has a TI chipset too which is very good for some picky DAW's. My Echo Audiofire 8 isn't picky, but I got this one just in case I ever needed the superior TI chipsets.

Works great! Sounds great! Great value. Unit felt decently built too. Just make sure to plug the power into the unit before you attempt to power the PC on as you could burn out the power regulators on the board or burn out your PCI-E slot.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Still working over two years later. Not a single issue. :)

5 out of 5 eggsWindows 8.1. Works great.

Pros: Small size.
Nice look.
Solid feeling connections.
Good read/write speeds.
Molex wasn't too tight.

Cons: The plate needed a little adjustment to fix. Took about 30 seconds to make work but it might be a little daunting to someone less experienced.
I think the power adapter would have looked better black.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this with a WD Studio drive. I'm getting consistent read speeds of 90MB/s and write speeds of 80MB/s sequential which is well within my expectations. Windows 8.1 had no trouble picking it up and had my drive installed in a couple of seconds. The brand on my box was IOCREST which I found out was just another name SYBA uses and it even has the same model number so no worries. As mentioned, the 4 pin molex power port wasn't too tight, which is nice since I sometimes feel like I have to force those harder than I want to and I felt good about this one.

5 out of 5 eggsSyba is good quality

Pros: Works great right out of the box with all of my different Linux distros that I run on my HTPC. I can boot from 4 different SSD drives or 6 different fibre channel drives on an external array and all of my distros and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 recognizes the firewire and can access my Hitachi firewire drives and firewire cameras.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have three or four SYBA devices and they all work great and have never given me any trouble.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great! Using with Presonus Fire Studio Mobile

Pros: Easy to Install, Solid build, Texas Instruments chip, Low cost, Zero issues running Windows 10, attached to Asrock Z170 Extreme 7 mobo, 4 pin molex.

Cons: Could maybe be built smaller but wouldn't want it to compromise integrity

Other Thoughts: I Don't understand why they phased out Firewire, Superior Technology with dedicated streaming, Needed to attach Presonus Fire Studio Mobile to new desktop, This was a great option.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm!

Pros: Self installed a year ago in Dell i3847-8923BK Intel Core i7-4790 (with 1TB HD, 16GB memory, Win7 Pro, USB 3.0). Installation was trouble free, Windows found and installed driver for it. I'm using it with Sony DCR-TRV460 Digital 8 camcorder converting my old Hi8 and D8 tapes with at most 2-3 dropped frames per file. Works with Windows 10 Movie Maker.

Cons: After upgrading to Windows 10 it doesn't automatically bring up Movie Maker when switching camcorder on, now the program has to be brought on manually.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with it and would buy it again.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well With Sony miniDV Camcorder

Pros: Easy installation. Windows 8.1 recognized it and installed a working driver. I was able to connect to my aging Sony miniDV camcorder and extract a few tapes' worth of movies without issue.

Cons: None that I encounter.

Other Thoughts: Nicely rounded out the feature set of my computer; this was all that was missing that I really cared about on the Gigabyte GA-X99-UD3P motherboard that I based my new build upon.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes not come with low profile adapter!

Pros: Works well with FIreWire Audio Interfaces. It supports very Low latency (<10ms) and hot-plugging.

Cons: No low profile adapter is included like with the other SYBA FireWire cards I've purchased! This was a huge disappointment for me as I've seen SYBA be top notch with including them in all of their products that support low profile that I've purchased in the past.

Other Thoughts: Maybe they just left it out of my box?

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work--No Devices Detected

Pros: None that I have been able to discover.

Cons: Adobe Premiere cannot detect the camera or other DV or HDV device attached to this adapter.
HDVSplit cannot detect a camera connected to this device.
A Firewire drive connected to this adapter is not detected by Windows 7.

Other Thoughts: It may be possible that I got a dud out of many that work for others, but in this case, it appears to be non-functional. I didn't discover the problem until I tried to capture DV video for the first time, a month after I built the system.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for the issues you have experienced with this controller.

We recommend that you confirm that the device is installed correctly into your computer. Confirm that the Molex power feed is connected to a power supply. With the card installed in the machine, running Windows Update will have your computer search and download drivers for this device to work properly.

If the device isn't being recognized by the OS, you may have to reseat the card into the PCIe slot.

If you need additional support please feel free to email our support team.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.

-Regards SYBA CST 091515
