4 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Works perfectly. Truly plug and play -- no driver installation. I am using it to bring video into my computer from my camcorder and it has done about five hours so far without a single dropped frame.

Cons: I wish that the internal firewire port was a header so that I could connect it to the firewire connector on the front of my case. I don't understand the point of putting a regular firewire connector on the inside of my case -- how am I ever going to use that?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: worked right out of the box

Cons: did not install itself so I had to open my PC's case

Other Thoughts: this replaced on board firewire device using a Via chipset which didn't work with my Focusrite audio interface. This has a TI chip and it has worked flawlessly for some years now. Thank you SIIG and Newegg

5 out of 5 eggsSIIG 1394 3-port PCI Card Model NN-440012-S8

Pros: Plugged in worked right away. Good Firewire performance.

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: Used on a research microscope for Firewire video capture. Works great! I saw another user had some problem seating this card in an Optiplex 755, but I did not experience the that problem in my Optiplex 755. It seated properly & worked right out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsSIIG PCI Firewire Card

Pros: Installed easily enough and was recognized right off the bat, running 8.1 64bit pro on a brand new i5 z97 machine. It's doing exactly what I need. I have a Sony Video Walkman that I'm digitizing Hi8 tapes from and it requires a firewire port. Clearly it's an old technology standard because the new boards and peripherals don't include it. Happy so far.

Cons: None I can think of .

Other Thoughts: Hate to use up a good PCI port with old technology but, I've still got plenty of expansion room. And since digitizing our home movies made the wife extremely happy, it's a win/win!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for firewire audio

Pros: Like many of the other reviewers, I'm using this firewire card for Pro Audio, in my case an M-Audio Profire 2626. The ten dollar card I bought with my computer (with a Via chipset) was working sometimes, but would get garbled when CPU usage was high (such as certain games or when running VirtualBox), sounding like it was underwater.

With this card, everything works and sounds great even when taxing the CPU. 100% stable so far.

Version 8 of this card is plug-and-play under Windows 7 and 8. It's unlikely you'll get an older version if buying new.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: With Pro Audio, you can't take the risk of a failure while recording, which is why I bought this card rather than taking a chance with something else.

5 out of 5 eggsthe best

Pros: like the other reviewers here i bought this card to remedy intermittent troublesome firewire performance on my desktop for audio. this card brought me crackle free audio performance from my presonus fp-10. super easy to install, just plug it in and windows 7 does everything else. if you read online, this card is pretty much the be all/end all of superior firewire 400 performance... not just great for audio, but for video and everything else as well. on top of all this the card seems to be made very well hardware wise.

Cons: none, this is firewire perfection!

Other Thoughts: i was using an onboard VIA chip (vt6307/vt6308) and it was making my ASIO meter jump around and spike/timeout in cubase, along with delivering crackle/pops on playback and in recording whenever i used any virtual instruments or guitar amp sims. i then tried a VIA pci card i had lying around and while it seemed a bit better i decided to get this premium product. my ASIO meter now stays steady in the 15-30% range with no timeouts and no crackles, all while i have all of my normal background processes running (internet, virus scanner, etc). you owe it to yourself to get the best (especially for this price) for whatever it is you do with firewire on your desktop.

5 out of 5 eggsMOTU Approved

Pros: Worked instantly when previous device had not. No trouble with ASIO drivers. Clear transfer of audio.

Cons: ?

Other Thoughts: Replaced Syba device with this one which had TI chip as recommended by MOTU for my Ultralite. Worked right out of the box when the previous had not. Saved tons of money over swapping audio devices.

5 out of 5 eggsFirestudio Project (PreSonus)

Pros: - Auto-Install (Vista x64) Plug-n-Play (Even though on the box vista is not listed as being compatible)
- Made my Firestudio Project Work
- Has 2 Firewire (My Dell Studio XP came with 1)=3
- Fast shipping (arrived 3 days earlier)

Cons: Can't come up with any, I'll re-write a review if any come up (i'm hoping not....)

Other Thoughts: Other thoughts.
I go into Guitar Center on my mind of Buying M-Audio USB Interface about 500$. Dealer tells me to buy Firestudio Project same price but better. I Buy it, come home, it doesnt' work! I search the internet, can't get it to work. I try to install windows xp on my new vista computer, install sonar, uninstall sonar, tried all kind of things but no luck.
Than searching the Presonus forum i came accross the firewire Topic (not sticky) and i thoguht let me try it. When i read reviews about it that this is what you need to make it work, i was verry veryyy mad at Presonus for a great product but no clarification about firewire might cause problems OR You'll need certain firewire....but anyway this is how i ended up at and i'm glad, no time to waste, back to recording, thank you newegg i hope you get a newer egg...
