      I was using a different card prior to this, but decided to try this one when I noticed a much different transfer speed across our network. I switched the old one out with this model and my speeds instantly improved to where I expected them to be. I definitely recommend this card.

      There's a version of this exact card made by Dynex (DX-PCI2PF) and sold at [...] for [$]. Works perfectly. Installed without issue in seconds on Win 7 - 64 bit. 1394b connectivity works great with Lexar Pro card reader (firewire 800 version).I'm sure the SIIG version is great, too, but at [$] the price difference can't be justified in my opinion.

          Comments about SIIG FireWire-800 PCI Express x1 Host Adapter:

          I have a dated Nikon Super Coolscan LS-4000 ED slide scanner with Firewire and my desktop did not have the necessary connection adapter. This adapter was recommended by Dell for my computer and I look forward to using the slide scanner to scan and transfer about 3,500 slides to computer storage in the near future.

            Plugged it into my computer slot, plugged cable and video camera in and software popped to import! It even rewinds tape first if you choose "import all" or something like that.
            It could not be easier.

                    Boy was I shocked to find my Dell XPS-8300 (made 9/11) had no FireWire input for my Panasonic video camera! Lucky I had an empty PCI Express card slot in back. This was easy to install and all the drivers loaded automatically - no need to use the enclosed CD. Works fine. Camera uses the FireWire-400 slot. Not sure I'll ever use the FireWire-800 inputs, but I now have them. I did not attach the power supply. Didn't know how and it said it was only needed if you were using all 3 inputs on the card. Rare event I'll never do...

                        My main desktop doesn't have a firewire port; however, I needed this interface for transferring data from a recording device. As I didn't want to wait for shipping I went to the store to purchase a less expensive card. Unfortunately it was out of stock and I wanted to leave with a card so the sales rep recommended this a sthe least expensive quality card for my purposes. I found it easy to physically install, was recognized right away and worked flawlessly from the start.

                        I purchased this FireWire Adapter to enable me to download HD video from a Sony HDR-FX7 Video camera. I installed this product myself and had the machine up an running in about an hour. The instructions were very simple to follow. Once installed I had Windows 7 search for an undated driver which it found and installed in a few seconds. Love it!

                                Comments about SIIG FireWire-800 PCI Express x1 Host Adapter:

                                Provides immediate identification of the Drobo FireWire 800 connection, however the power cable provided (which is optional in some cases, but REALLY needed if you want to use the 2nd 800 port for another device, and also increases the data transfer rate of the Drobo) only has LP4 (IDE) power cable connectors. All the new systems are SATA, and until I find a similar Y-split power cable that is SATA to power the card I have to live with lower data transfer rate. SIIG support is a joke (example: when I asked if they can direct me to a vendor that sells the SATA version of the same cable they provided in the package, the answer was: "try local computer stores"... Gee, now that's helpful (needless to say that was the first thing I did). Any suggestions?
