Pros: lots of functionality, one board.
Cons: could be slightly slower when transfering using USB/FW/Gb interfaces at the same time, but not significantly.
Other Thoughts: Installed on an ASUS Pundit after discovering my 7 Maxtor drives would not work at the same time. Troubleshot down to the Pundit/SIS USB interface (also the Firewire interface would not PnP!). Figured a PCI board could save me, and this SIIG works flawlessly. The Gb NIC also works as well. Have not tested the FW interface yet.

It works... with some work
Pros: It works as expected and saved me two PCI slots on my motherboard. It's also fairly generous with connectors; there are two each of the FireWire and USB connectors
Cons: Strange quirk with BIOS (read below). 2x5 headers on the PCB for USB and FireWire would have been preferable.
Other Thoughts: This card works as expected, EXCEPT that my PC wouldn't boot until I changed the preferred VGA BIOS setting from AGP to PCI (which is counterintuitive since I have a single AGP card). Anyway, I only bought this card to give myself some extra slots on my motherboard (an ASUS A7S333). The Ethernet is supposed to do 1Gbps, but as I don't have anything else in the house which can also go that fast, this feature is untested.
