BELKIN 3-Port Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and 3-Port FireWire PCI Card Model F5U508v1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Initial problems but finally worked 09/12/2007

This review is from: BELKIN 3-Port Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and 3-Port FireWire PCI Card Model F5U508v1

Pros: I installed this along with a Siig USB/FireWire front hub in my Dell OptiPlex GX270 (2003). Works well.

Cons: Good product, but needed tweaking on install. If you are running XPsp2, then you don't need included drivers. I installed in one slot and XP didn't recognize it. I uninstalled the root hubs in device mgr. and after rebooting, this slot finally recognized the card and the Siig front port hub.

Other Thoughts: The first card I got was not Ver.1 and went bad. RMA'd to Belkin with a NIB replacement arriving a week later. (good work Belkin!) Belkin sent me ver.1 card and finally everything works up to speed.
