Sonnet Technologies 3-port FireWire 800 PCIe Card Adapter Reviews

    Simple to install & it works.

    What else can you say. It is one of the cards that has been tested with and approved for use with a UA Apollo 16. That in itself suggested it was a high quality product. Out of the box, in my PC and cabled to my Apollo in five minutes. It works flawlessly.

    Recommended by Tony Dayton here at Sweetwater... works perfect with my UAD-2 Custom!

    Super simple instalation and works perfect.

    This adapter seemed to be highly rated so it is now in my i7 PC and it works perfectly. I have a Focusrite liquid Safire 56 running on Windows 8.1-64 bit with Pro Tools 11. No issues what so ever. Sweetwater service was excellent.

    Seemingly a bulletproof choice for StudioLive 16.4.3 AI and Win 7 x64

    I bought this FW800 interface after lots of research and ringing of hands over the cost two things stood out:
    1. I could get a seemingly decent FW800 card for 1/3rd the price of the Sonnett elsewhere.
    2. Buying other cards for this application is a crapshoot.

    So I wavered and worried for about a week over it. I came to two conclusions:

    1. I've spent way too much time dinking around with alternatives when the clear choice is in front of me.
    2. If I calculate my free time as 'time and a half' at work' which is logical because I work a 40 hour week, my free time spent at work woukd be time and a half. Using that scenario, one snag in my install and configuration of a cheaper card would eat up whatever I might have saved very quickly. On that basis it was a value I could live with.

    Result: effortless install and config, took me all of 10 minutes from power down to power up to complete. Almost as important as a hassle free installation, I've got a 2 year warranty and the best service in the game of audio tech business. I dont know how you can get anymore bulletproof with a computer add-on than that!
