4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, but caution

Pros: Works as it's supposed to. Handles Firewire fine, no drivers needed, in Win 8.1 Pro.

Cons: Molex power connector broke. Had to get replacement. Connector popped off the board, because it was too tight. Couldn't get the cable to fit. Had to RMA for a replacement. Didn't try to connect the power on the replacement; don't need it after all, since all my FW devices have their own power supply. Plan to use this without the Molex power connection, or if you must have it, be VERY CAREFUL when you install it. Do not try to apply any pressure whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Even with the problems, I just bought a second one. I have too many FW peripherals to let this slide by. I wanted to make sure I have a backup card in case this one fails. Who knows how long they'll continue to make them?

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised after BIOS update

Pros: Works as advertised

Cons: Did not function with my ASUS Sabertooth Z77 running BIOS 1708, once I updated to BIOS 1805 everything worked great. Issue was with the MB BIOS, not the VANTEC card.

3 out of 5 eggsNo Go with Win 8 x64

Pros: No drivers needed, FW 400 & 800 ports
Plug'n Play under Win7 x64

Cons: Incompatible with Windows 8 x64.

Other Thoughts: The first time I've installed it, Windows saw an unknowned device but there were no drivers available. It's the only time Windows 8 saw something. I tried it in another slot, nothing was detected, I've tried it again in the first slot, this time nothing was detected. I've checked the voltage from my power supply and everything was fine.

After that, I tried it in another computer running Windows 7 x64, it was immediately detected and Windows installed the drivers and all was fine, that's why I think there's an issue with Win8 x64

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Worked without driver install on Windows 8

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a TI Chipset for those that are wondering. No issues with my Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP.

Pros: * Works out of the box under OS X.
