5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Pulled out of box, cord long enough 4' plus, clear instructions on not using internal and one of the external at same time.
Fit perfectly in case and tightened down.
Win 7 64bit picked up driver when I plugged in my old canon ZR90 in and started downloading, rewinding, etc from Nero 14.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, works

Pros: Low price, plug & play. Windows 7 installed without any problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Installed this to dump a bunch of old miniDV camcorder stuff to hard disk. This was a cheap and effective card for the job.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with x64 OSs

Pros: Works great, used with Windows 7 64 bit and CrunchBang 64bit, works as intended. No need for drivers - generics via Windows and Linux alike work fine.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: There were a few opensource apps that did not recognize the card, which may have been the other bad reviewer's issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with W7 Ultimate 64-bit

Pros: None

Cons: Probably my fault for not checking, but I want to warn others that it will not work with Windows 7 Ultimate 64- bit.

I think it is an issue with 64-bit windows in general.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Cheap! (Even more so with a 20% promo code discount)

It worked well with Windows 7 and Sony Vegas.

Cons: None. Just wish I had read a the reviews (or looked at the one picture with the cable) a little more closely to see that it came with a 4 to 6 pin cable. Could have saved myself $3.00 on the cable I ordered with it.

Other Thoughts: I have about 40 old miniDV tapes with for an old Panasonic PV-DV200 miniDV camcorder and I wanted to get it all onto the computer so I could have it backed up and use it for editing. I plugged it into a PCI slot and Windows 7 Home (64-bit) installed it with no problem. I used Sony Vegas Movie Studio 11 to do the video capture and it was easy to import the tapes as video clips.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Peasy

Pros: Popped it in a free PCI slot and I was off to the races. WinXP found drivers for it instantly.

Cons: It would be nice if it had a FW800 port or two, but I only needed 400 so this was perfect for my needs.

Other Thoughts: I run a firewire-based audio production home studio, and acquired a new PC desktop, but of course it didn't come with a Firewire card. For $11...seriously...it would be absurd to NOT buy it! I highly recommend for anyone with FW400 needs!

5 out of 5 eggsVantec 1394a card

Pros: Easy installation (Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit), easy to use and conveniently comes with a 6 pin to 4 pin cable for my DV camera.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card with one use in mind, which was to pull all the video off of my DV camera's tapes. I used it for 8 tapes and never had an issue at all. No disconnects, no corrupted video etc. It has performed exactly as it is intended to, no more & no less. I highly recommend this card for your 1394a needs! It couldn't have been easier, from choosing the card on the website to pulling the video from the camera.

5 out of 5 eggsSlim Card!

Pros: The actual card is very small/slim which barely blocks any airflow which is the main reason why I bought it. It has both 4 and 6 pin firewire connectors.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 automatically installed driver. True plug n play...
