Pros: Very nice drive. Never had a single issue. Nice boot times. My speeds are better than advertised, so happy here. I'd buy another for sure. Thinking about getting a 500gb version.
Cons: the mechanisms for the cables are a bit flimsy. So be careful when attaching or moving cables. I didn't have any trouble but noticed that they can move fairly easily.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works perfectly. Plugged it in, plugged in the power, turned on the PC, booted it up, and Win7 recognized it and installed the drivers. Didn't have to do anything. Started using my multichannel DAC fed from it immediately.
Has a very silent background when listening to music using my outboard firewire DAC. Very nice. Seems extremely stable. No dropouts or strange sounds. Listening to Pink Floyd Momentary Lapse of Reason "Dogs of War" right now.
This is not a sound card.
But you can feed a fire-wire sound-card or workstation DAW or DAC with this fire-wire unit. It has a TI chipset too which is very good for some picky DAW's. My Echo Audiofire 8 isn't picky, but I got this one just in case I ever needed the superior TI chipsets.
Works great! Sounds great! Great value. Unit felt decently built too. Just make sure to plug the power into the unit before you attempt to power the PC on as you could burn out the power regulators on the board or burn out your PCI-E slot.
Other Thoughts: Still working over two years later. Not a single issue. :)READ FULL REVIEW
