Awesome upgrade!

on 11/29/2007

Popped this puppy into my Dual 1GB G4 and I was off to the races. Great USB 2.0 upgrade from the native USB 1.0 ports on this G4. Although my initial intention of purchasing this card was for the USB 2.0 upgrade, the extra Firewire ports have also come in handy!

Nice "half-card sized" Video Capture Car

by Joe on 10/11/2008

Easy "Plug and Play" Video Capture Card I needed to capture MiniDV Cassette Video from my Sony Camcorder. Too bad it didn't come with any video capture software, buy you can use Microsoft video capture software included in MS Windows XP Professional. The card is the "half-card" size so it fit easily into my small frame Antec ARIA Micro-ATX Case. Also gives you USB 2.0 ports which would also be an upgrade to your computer if you only had the USB 1.0 ports
