Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS!! Placed in my PCI slot, with every precaution possible. Completely fried my motherboard. PC is 100% non-operational. Does not turn on! Brand new ACER PC bought less then 30 days ago and is now dead from installing this card.
Pros: There are no pro's for this garbage.
Cons: it's all cons. there is no pro's. If I could give this minus stars I would.
Summary: This card is great. Please note that it has an onboard spot to plug into your power supply. Unfortunately, my computer had no power supply spots left but it still worked fine. I'm unsure if it's because my firewire device has it's own power source.
Summary: Install and works with no problems, has three ports, and is dirt cheap. Remember, though, this is a PCI card, so be sure to open your box before you order to make sure you have an open PCI slot left!
Summary: I saw others with issues, but what can you say when it instantly works! Plugged into my XP pro desktop, turned on the computer. It found the PCI card instantly, installed and then I connected my DV Camcorder. It was instantly recognized and was able to capture video.
