5 out of 5 eggsCheap, compact, reliable. Works on almost any system!

Pros: What can I say? If you need IEEE 1394 to connect an old DV camcorder or bridge, this is a great purchase...!

I have it running right out of the box with Windows 7 64-bit. No doubt XP would also support it. Not sure about 2000, but I am fairly certain that pretty much any system with a Pentium 1 or better with a PCI slot can handle this. Cool stuff. (Plus, if you merely need to dub old MiniDV tapes to your hard disk -- That's not really CPU intensive. More just streaming right off the tape to your disk, at 3.6 megabytes per second. Some new flash drives can even handle that!).

Cons: Nothing, really. Except that Firewire 400 is on the way out.

Other Thoughts: Great if you don't have a system with this built-in. To give you an idea, the last motherboard I had with Firewire onboard was made in 2006!

5 out of 5 eggsFirewire Port

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine but no internal header.

Pros: Simple, compact, and inexpensive. It also has each type of connector. The 6 pin and 4 pin mini.

Cons: The internal connector isn't a header, it's another jack. So I can't connect my case's front jack to it. I'm not sure what situation exactly where you'll have a external type of fire wire cable running through the inside of your machine.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work With Windows 7

Pros: None for me.

Cons: Don't waste your time if you have windows 7, there is NO support for it. The OS recognizes the card, but not the device plugged in to it. Tech support couldn't help me either, so I guess I'm stuck with it.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit properly/work.

Pros: I couldn't tell you, it didn't work, but at least it was cheap.

Cons: This card barely fit in my case, but when I got it loosely in my computer my Windows 7 PC didn't recognize it at all. I looked around the internet for drivers and didn't find any. I removed it and put it back in at least 4 times, just in case, and it didn't work any time.

Other Thoughts: I hope I can get this working, I'll happily change my review if I can.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug+Play Win or Hack

Pros: - Inexpensive
- Solid build quality
- Plug and play in Windows 7 or Hackintosh

Cons: - None so far

Other Thoughts: If you have old firewire perhiperals that you still intend to use (cameras etc) on a new mobo with no 1394 ports, pick this up.
