Works well but not very rugged

Donald Vining "DV2", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for my XE PC in 2007 so I got my money's worth out of it driving firewire 800 external disks, but I have broken off 2 of the 3 sockets so I think it is time to replace it. I've never had that happen on any PC card before.

Needs Unibrain driver

  • Summary: I got this to add Firewire 800 to my 5 year old XP system so I could run some audio software and connect a keyboard and external drive. The Belkin unit uses a TI chipset which is ideal for most audio hardware. Unfortunately, the included factory driver on a CD did not work for me.

  • Summary: The card was supposed to include a cable, but did not. It was clearly an item that had been returned and sent out again. The documentation that came with the card, and that available on line, is poor.

  • Summary: I use it with a Drobo (gen 2, 4TB partition) on my Vista Home Premium PC, using the driver that WIndows picked for me. It didn't pick up the Drobo the 1st time I plugged it in, but after power cycling the Drobo a couple of time, the card picked it up, not sure if it's Drobo or the card since I don't...
