Nice – Firewire 1394 PCI Card with Software CD + Cable Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Fast, can transfer video perfectly on-the-fly without any loss or problems from a compact MiniDV tape.
Windows 7 automatically detected the device and installed the proper drivers, and then it automatically detected the camera and asked for video transferring.
It has many inputs so it can probably work with several devices at once.
It's pretty short so it doesn't intefere with the air flow from the GFX card
Cons:
None!
Other:
Bottomline:
Windows 7 usually install the latest driver, so use this driver instead of the one in the CD (unless you're using Windows XP or older, as these don't automatically reconigse the device)
