I bought this to add another Firewire port to my MacBook Pro 2.4 Ghz (not unibody) running 10.5 and Final Cut Pro 7 (Final Cut Studio 2). I like to be able to capture long-form performances directly to my external hard drive via my MacBook Pro, and the SIIG Express Card adapter works perfectly.
I connect my external FW drive to my MacBook Pro via the built-in FW controller as it supplies power to the drive. The MiniDV camera is then connected to the laptop via the SIIG FW card for capture. I'm able to capture to the hard drive as well as the MiniDV tape simultaneously. But if I need to go longer, I can record until my hard drive fills up using this set-up.
This card ( VIA chipset based) works flawlessly!!. It is on par with my Desktop Daw PC TI firewire card.
Package arrived on time, opened box, took out card, hooked it up and turned on laptop ( Windows 7), no need to install anything. Just had to install my Edirol Fa101 interface drivers that's it.
This is my first purchase from Amazon and I am impressed.
It's too bad most laptops these days do not have a firewire port or even Express Card socket. There is an express card to USB adapter, but it does not work as good as a Real Firewire Express card directly to the laptop bus.
Overall 9-10 .
This made my day -- I am not very knowledgable about computers and since my son, the computer geek, was on the road with work, he suggested I get this card so I could access my wideformat printer. I was all worried that I was going to have to try to install something in the computer but when it came, all I had to do was plug it in and bingo, I was up and running.
