All the Right Connections
Does your computer lack the FireWire 400 (1394a) ports needed to connect your external hard drives, DV camcorder, external DVD or Blu-ray burner? Don't worry about not having the right connections or not enough of them—bring your system up to speed with Sonnet's Allegro™ FW400 PCI adapter card. This low-cost solution instantly adds the ports you need to connect all your FireWire 400 peripherals.
Does your computer already have a couple of FireWire ports? Don't clutter your desk by adding a FireWire hub—install the Allegro FW400 card instead. The Allegro FW400 card adds three FireWire ports (three external, or two external plus one internal) to your computer. The Allegro FW400 installs easily into one of your computer’s PCI slots, features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection support with automatic device configuration, and supports all industry-standard FireWire 400 peripherals. This card also powers bus-powered devices (such as small external drives and audio interfaces), so some devices can be plugged in and operate without an extra connection to a power supply.
From importing and editing video files to backing up your computer, Allegro FW400 offers exceptional speed for digital-intensive work. Spend less time on slower USB 2.0 transfer speeds and more time on being productive. Expand your computer and your possibilities all at the same time!
