The need for speed

on 5/14/2008

A useful addition to any computer, since one can't have too many i/o ports. I'm using mine to connect to my external hard drive for backups that are almost twice as fast as usb 2.0. When you're backing up 3 or 4 hundred gigs at a time, that means something. Read More

PCIe only, if you have older PCI busses, get another card. Works as advertised, easy to install in a MacPro, the only con is a minor one, it does not have an additional small 4 pin firewire input like some similar cards I had before. 2 firewire 800, 1 firewire 400 (six pin) Read More

Product Overview

Have a need for speed? Get a PCI Express FireWire 800 (1394b) card for the same price as 1394a. The PEX1394B3 is built with a native PCI Express chipset and does not use a PCI Express bridge chip resulting in faster, reliable, and cost effective performance. With an unrivaled 800 Mbps data transfer capability, the two IEEE 1394b ports provide highly efficient, reliable communication. The card also provides a 400 Mbits/sec IEEE 1394a port for your older FireWire peripherals. The PEX1394B3 supports the most demanding IEEE 1394b peripherals like portable hard drives, DV camcorders, digital cameras and CD-RW/DVD-ROM drives. Creating your own high-speed laptop digital media center has never been easier.
