Additional Information

This 3 Port PCI Express FireWire adapter card can be installed in a PCI Express slot to add two IEEE1394b (FireWire 800 - 9 pin) ports and one IEEE1394a (FireWire 400 - 6 pin) port, providing broad compatibility with a wide range of FireWire devices (e.g. DV camcorders, external hard drives, digital cameras, etc.). The 2b, 1a card features a native (single chip) PCI Express chipset - resulting in faster, more reliable and cost effective performance than expansion cards that utilize a "bridge" chip.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I needed a stable firewire card to handle all my home recording through a Presonus Firebox and Edirol FA101. Using a Sony Vaio VGN-FW270J, the built-in firewire was unreliable, losing connectivity during recording and playback without notice. Beyond frustrating! For around $50, the StarTech firewire expresscard works incredibly well without any kind of installation or setup required. All the drivers loaded automatically (using Vista Ultimate) and with the hotswap feature, I can install and remove the card at will. As far as performance with my firewire devices (especially soundcards), I have yet to notice any additional lag or latency whatsoever. By far this has been the best (and cheapest) alternative to actually replacing the board, without compromising any performance. Highly recommended!
UPDATE 2/8/16: Another Amazon user has replied that that a cable was NOT included in his/her purchase. So don't count on receiving a cable any more!

I purchased this card to transfer video from my Panasonic Mini-DV camcorder to my laptop computer running Vista. The card works without a hitch and Vista makes it easy to import video from the camera to the computer. I didn't need any software setup at all, it just worked. The 6-pin end of the cable plugs in to the expresscard, and the 4-pin end of the cable plugs in to the camcorder's "DV" port.

One thing that should have been stated in the Amazon description is that a firewire 4-pin to 6-pin cable IS included with this card. (I unnecessarily ordered a separate cable because there was no indication that a cable is included.) In fact Amazon misleads you by stating that this card is frequently purchased along with a separate cable, which implies that a separate cable should... Read more
I purchased this card to add Firewire 800 capabilities to my Hackintosh. I had tried other highly rated cards with a Texas Instrument chipset but they all led to system instability and freezes. This card from Startech uses a Agere chipset which is similar to the ones found in real Mac computers. It worked out of the box in OSX 10.6 without any additional drivers and works perfectly. I don't use Windows so i can't comment on it's performance or stability in Windows.
