Yes, I would recommend this product
Purchased product to add additional FireWire (1394a) ports to my Dell Studio XPS 9000 for my Digital Camcorder. My XPS only has one FireWire port and that was in use by my External Hard drive.
Product was easy to install and no drivers to install. Windows 7 recognized at boot up and installed correct drivers.
Pros:home video editing

StarTech 2 port PCI Express 1394a Firewire Card

PostedMay 4, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
I purchased this card from Dell on 3/14/2010 and installed it 3 days later on my new Dell Studio XPS 9000 computer. It was easy to install but the computer would not recognize it to use with my Lacie External Firewire Hard Drive. After contacting StarTech support suggested that I try the Legacy drivers. I installed the Legacy drivers and it then recognized the card.
The only problem is that I have a problem using the Lacie Hard Drive to store captured video using Pinnacle Studio 14. It will not allow the entire video to be captured before dropping completely out. All other hard drives work perfectly for this.
Pros:firewire hard drive for video storage

The was a add on to resolve the issue that our new XPS 435T/9000 only had one FireWire port, and we needed a minium of two FireWire ports.
Good quality, was simple to install.
Dell shipping and process was smooth also.
I don't have any complaints at all.
Pros:a/v editing & production
