            Comments about Sonnet Tango 800 PCIe Card:

            I needed an extra firewire 800 port for my older Mac Pro, since the original firewire 800 port would not support full bandwith for my Universal Audio Apollo interface. This card popped right in, showed up right away, and works great!

            Comments about Sonnet Tango 800 PCIe Card:

            Sonnet cards are the best in the industry, Never the need for a software driver and never any issues. Sonnet US based tech support is spot on if needed. In the 10+ years I have owned various Sonnet products, I have never had a problem, or a failure, or needed to call them for tech support.

            They work especially well in tandem, so make sure ALL your PCI cards come from Sonnet and you will never have any issues or conflicts.

              Very nice card with good drivers. This particular card has a 4-pin power connector at the back edge. There is nothing whatsoever about it in the instructions (printed, or online at the mfr's site).

              Answer from Sonnet is that you need to connect this to your power supply if installing in a PC. Mac installs do not require it.

              There. Saved you an email. ;-)

                Comments about Sonnet Tango 800 PCIe Card:

                The card installed with ease and had instant access to WD MyBook using firewire 800. That's twice the speed of USB 2.0. I deleted disk partitions, formated as single drive, and loaded allot of family pics. The tasks were fast and without problems. I also like the addition USB 2.0 ports which can be used as a work around for keyboard and mouse problems. Great add on product for a new teched out Dell XPS 9000 I7 920 Windows 7 64-bit system. My first PCI express purchase;)
