Pros It works with my Shaw set-top box (Motorola DCX3200-M)
Cons Does not come with a low profile bracket
Summary I bought this card with the intention of recording video through my Shaw set-top box's firewire port. The program I used to do the recording is CapDVHS. Everything works as I expected. No driver issues with Windows 7 32-bit. For those interested in getting this card to work with a Motorola set-top box, visit this link for the custom drivers and recording software http://www.avsforum.com/t/403695/how-to-record-via-ieee-1394-firewire-to-windows-xp/5880#post_22536429
Pros Affordable, easy to install like any other PCIE card
Cons Locks up my system at random when I am using it!
Summary Not compatible with Protools. Probably ok with smaller things that don't transfer a lot of data. The price of these PCIE 1394 cards varies wildly, and I went with the most budget friendly - I suppose you get what you pay for. Also in one of the other reviews some guy said he got an adapter with his - mine didn't. I dunno if this is a case of mistaken identity or what, but if I were supposed to recieve a cable or something with it I didn't.
Summary I bought this card to use my external hard drive with my pc, works great for what I bought it for and it even includes an adapter for using an internal firewire connector. It would be nice if it had an internal connector instead of an adapter that runs outside the pc, but overall a great deal for the price.
