This review is from: SYBA Low Profile PCI-Express 1394B/A Firewire Card Model SD-PEX30009
Pros: Reasonable cost.
Used for several years without any issues.
TI chip-was needed for my specific app
Other Thoughts: I ordered this for a specific reason: I am an amateur radio operator and use Software Defined Radio as one of my main radios. (These are radios where much of the usual radio functions are controlled not by the hardware-think volume knob for example-but in the software.) This can be finicky to setup and operate. The hardware portion of this setup requires a Firewire connection to the computer and they highly recommended getting one based on the TI chip. I ordered it, installed it when it came and it's worked fine since. Not a single issue. I am using it to operate my Flex-3000 transceiver as I write this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Reasonable price.
Prefer having WIFI installed as a "card" and not a USB extra.
Bought this to use on my Linux (Ubuntu) box. Worked without any drama or surprises.
Cons: None. Worked the first time and continues to function as advertised.
Other Thoughts: I was building a DIY computer system bought her on NewEgg to serve as a dedicated Linux desktop. Was doing this on a shoestring so didn't want or need the latest and greatest hardware. Researched which WIFI cards worked and ordered this. Worked on first boot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI H61M-P21 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Cons: None for me, knew what I was buying going in
Other Thoughts: I was actually looking for a computer mobo with an old timey serial port: I'm a ham and have a couple of radios that have serial connectivity. Didn't want to spend a lot. Got the build it yourself package. Worked first time, installed Ubuntu linux. Not a single problem.READ FULL REVIEW
