    Sonnet FWUSB2A-E Reviews

    Tango PCIe FireWire 400/USB 2.0 Adapter Card is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Firewire Adapter Easy to plug and play with no software to load. The adapter worked fine, but is not compatible with Windows 8.1. If it works well, why is not compatible. When I went to shut my computer down, it would turn off and about 10 seconds later the computer would automatically boot up. I'd recommend this for a computer that is running on Windows 7 or below. The web site did not show system requirements for this adapter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I installed this board in my new Windows 8/64-bit computer so that I could continue to use my Nikon LS9000 film scanner, which requires a FireWire connection. The FireWire driver provided with Windows 8/64 did not work with this board and my scanner. However, an alternative driver obtained from Thesycon installed successfully and found the scanner. With the installation debugged, the board and scanner seem to be working fine. The extra USB ports will come in handy too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonnet Tango PCIe FireWire 400/USB 2.0 Great replacement USB/Firewire card. Provides me with the additional expansion on my Mac Pro for the myriad of needed peripherals. The original card lasted five years and only needed a replacement after lightening fried the house ! B&H provide great service
