Pros: I’m using it as a backup drive with a 3TB drive in it. Easy to setup and use.
The case does not have a fan in it, but it stayed cool thru about 6 hours of transferring files. A pleasant surprise. My old case had a fan and the case got much hotter than this case.
Cons: Instructions leave everything to be desired, but it's made in China. What does one expect? I figured how to open the case by accident. I was looking for screws, but the drawer just pulls out.
The light does not work, hence minus one egg. I can’t tell if the unit is on or not. Only way I could tell it was working was by looking at Windows explorer and see that files were being copied over. I will probably try to exchange for one that has a working light.
This review is from: VANTEC 3-Port FireWire 400 PCIe Host Card Model UGT-FW200
Pros: Plug-n-play just as advertised.
Other Thoughts: I bought another brand that never worked no matter what I did, so I tried this Vantec card and I’m glad I did. I use it with a Canon VIXIA HV 30 Video cam with no problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMS 2-Port eSATA PCI-E Host Controller Model SP-PCIE3132
Cons: Card would not work. Computer would not see it.
No CD or drivers came with the card.
No drivers or support from the manufactures site.
Other Thoughts: This card never would work, and caused me two days of aggravation trying to make it work. No CD with drivers came with the card, and there are no drivers on the manufactures site, even tho they say there is, they also say no drivers are needed. I removed this card, and hooked it up via USB, all my problems went away.
I can not recommend this card at all.
