  • 1Description

The 3-Port 2b 1a 1394 Low Profile PCI Express FireWire Adapter Card from StarTech can be installed in a PCI Express slot. With dual IEEE 1394b ports and single IEEE 1394a port, it provides broad compatibility with a whole range of FireWire devices (e.g. DV camcorders, external hard drives, digital cameras, etc.). This adds 3 FireWire ports to a standard or small form factor computer enabling support for high powered FireWire devices. It features a native single chip PCI Express chipset which results in fast, reliable performance. Using this card, you can add high speed FireWire port to any desktop. One of its great applications is that a high speed external hard drive or digital camera can be connected to a PCI Express enabled system.

Note: The software included with this product supports a "typical" driver install only. Custom driver setup requires software purchase from a 3rd party.

    StarTech PEX1394B3LP reviews

    3-Port 2b 1a 1394 Low Profile PCI Express FireWire Adapter Card is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from StarTech PCIe Firewire adapter It's been difficult to find a firewire card that actually works for me! This one works GREAT with my new MOTU 828 DA hybrid dconverter and my Hauptwerk organ software. I had to dig in my pc to find the power cable (why do they hide these cables?). Got the card installed without a hitch, and downloading and installing the win 10 updated driver was very simple. Firewire cable was included, along with an alternate mounting bracket, which I needed for my pc. Bottom line: I am very pleased with this reasonably priced and well designed B&H product! Leonard

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive FireWire Card I recently upgraded my motherboard on my Multimedia workstation however the new board lacked the legacy FireWire port that I still need to connect a Digital IO device in my recording studio. I plugged this little gem into a PCI slot on my ASUS X370-A board and it works like a charm. Win10 already has the driver and there was no need for an addition power connection which is contrary to the documentation. If you need FireWire connectivity I highly recommend this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Firewire Card for video editors We needed a firewire card for our new editing computer and this one is a great choice. It offers 6 & 8 pin options for folks who still need a firewire application. This one worked great and we use it to capture video from our studio while recording and to input video from cameras and decks. Keep in mind that the PC you use should have a power supply that has the necessary cable to hook up the card as it will need to be powered.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card - low profile option nice Using this PreSonus StudioLive mixer in a Gateway with a small form factor and it was nice to find a firewire card with a low profile bracket (included, had to swap it out once I got the card, but that was easy with a small screwdriver).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When It All Comes Together What a very, very pleasant surprise to see my JVC GR D230AA digital video camera download onto my Windows 10 HP Tower PC. It has taken me years to find a way to do this. The reviews on this web site which helped me choose B&H are one hundred percent correct. There was just one hitch. I thought the 800 ports would take my cable, naively believing their smaller size to be the same as the Fire Wire port on my ACER 5920 laptop. They were not. However, I have two camera to 400 port cables and that was good enough for me. The process began with ordering from B&H Photo and Video. Then I download the software from the original CD which came with the camera, which had a Win 98 driver folder. Next I downloaded Ulead VideoStudio 11 SE. While doing do Windows intelligently found two more files, most likely drivers, and included them. When the expansion card arrived I had to travel into town to have a technician change the circuit board to fit the larger PC frame. Back home I managed to fit the card into the appropriate slot. Windows 10 recognized it. Finally, I attached the cable between the JVC and the 400 (1394a) port, opened up Ulead, did a DV scan, saw vision, then captured it. Imported into a modern video editor it was perfect. Honestly, StarTech and B&H have brought the 'no longer supported' past into the present You can do the same and it is so inexpensive. What more can I say? It's a beautiful day when things come together. Thank you, B&H Photo and Video. The attached image is from my first download. The sound came through loud and clear.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great with my Tascam FW-1884 Using it in a Dell XPS running Win 7 Pro and I have to unplug and reinsert the FireWire cable every time I want to use my Tascam FW-1884 / Sonar setup. Never had this problem with the A version of the TI chip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless I use my rig for music and video production. I wanted native firewire support for my GA-Z77X-UP5TH. This card fit the bill perfectly.
