Not sure what to think 12/12/2008 8:58:10 PM

Pros: It works so far. Put my OCZ Rally2 8GB thumbdrive on it to see if the computer recognized it as operating at USB 2.0 or if it still gave me the speed up warning. It recognized. Have yet to check out firewire and DV input.. See cons and other thoughts

Cons: Nothing on the box about model or serial numbers. Website is scratchy at best for support. Website asked for serial number, but I didn't have one to provide.

Overall Review: This thing comes with a driver disk, even though it isn't supposed to need drivers. It also tried to install a video editing program straight from the disk, but it asked for a key code, which I don't have. I think if I had to do over again, I would buy a different card. This thing literally looks like it came from Dollar General. Not baggin on that store, but this thing wreaks of cheapness. I would probably stay clear.

Inexpensive upgrade to USB 2.0 10/17/2008 4:09:47 PM

Pros: Works good in USB 2.0 mode. Upgraded my USP 1.1 laptop to perform at USB 2.0 speeds. Works well with my 4 GB Flash Drive and Rosewill RX234 2.5" HDD External Enclosure. The cables that are included are long enough (Firewire cable = 3' and USB Power cable = 30") lengths.

Cons: No installation instructions. USB power cable does not provide sufficient power to drive older HDD's. AC/DC with 5V DC output Power adapter required.

Overall Review: Newegg's SYBA SD-AC-5V -- 5V DC Output Ac Adapter for PCMCIA Cardbus item works very well with this PCMCIA card.

mini port sucks 4/28/2008 9:33:12 PM

Pros: When i got this item it was recognized out of the box as USB add on. The problem was with the 1394 4 pin mini port it became disconnected and did not work.

Cons: mini 4 pin port

Pros: None that I can find.

Cons: I got this card about a month ago. We have 2 laptops in my house and this card locks them both up immediately after inserting the card.
No instructions, Came with a burned CD-R with no drivers and probably an illegal copy of the software.
Doesn't have the brand name anywhere on it.

Overall Review: I guess this might be good, if it ever worked. A little disappointed that Newegg would carry something like this. They usually have better stuff.

Not really a Sabrent unit 3/4/2008 4:23:21 PM

Pros: It's convenient when it works.

Cons: This card is problematic at best. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Sometimes devices plugged into it are recognized, sometimes not. Not Linux compatible either.

Overall Review: What you see in most pictures isn't what you get. Look closely at the last picture, the one of the box. Notice the yellow/orange label on the item inside. This is what you actually get; a generic PCMCIA card. Look for reviews on Google for SBT-PCA4.

Pros: Firewire has worked perfectly. Worked well with external CD/DVD drive. Works great with USB memory stick.

Cons: Has not worked with USB 2.0 external hard drive. System freezes with WiFi dongle if I plug/unplug it too many times. Failed miserably with a USB 2.0 hub.

Overall Review: My system (Windows XP SP2) froze so many times while I was trying to get it to work with a USB 2.0 hub that I ended up with errors on my hard drive and my integrated ethernet adapter got fried. I had to purchase a new hard drive and a new motherboard. Since XP didn't work when the ethernet adapter wasn't working, I lost days trying to figure out how to get XP to boot. Your basic nightmare.
