2 out of 5 eggsSIIG 3-Port Firewire 800

Pros: Texas Instruments Chipset, pci express, supplemental power supply.

Cons: it was difficult to install. I installed the version that came on the cd and the card wouldn't work. installed and uninstalled several times. I finally went to the SIIG website and downloaded an updated version of the drivers that included Windows 8 functionality. Still didn't work. In the software, you can choose between SIIG drivers and Microsoft Drivers. Choosing Microsoft Drivers solved the problem, the OEM Drivers apparently don't work. we'll see how stable it is as time passes. I installed on a Windows 8 platform, 64 bit, AMD A10 processor.

1 out of 5 eggsDIDN'T work with PreSonus FirePOD

Pros: None other than it seemed like it might work

Cons: I don't know what it is but I can't get any of the PreSonus hardware to work with this card. FirePOD or FireBOX... I tried switching to the 400 driver and everything. Don't get this card if you are using PreSonus hardware.

Other Thoughts: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
6gigs 1333/1600 CORSAIR RAM
Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my Mac-based DAW

Pros: Inexpensive solution for digital audio workstations requiring solid communication with audio interfaces. Works perfectly well out of the box with Macintosh, 10.6. Performs well will Drobo over 1394b

Cons: "Optional" power connector (supplies bus power without drawing from the motherboard) orientation could have been better, specifically more recessed, or vertical.

Other Thoughts: This includes a Molex to Molex/floppy Y-adapter cable, which doesn't really solve the problem of how to power this card when you need to. Well made, sleeved 4-pin floppy-type power extension cables that can reach all the way to the back of an ATX case, let alone EATX case are hard to come by. Had to have one custom made.
