High-Speed, High-Bandwidth Ports for Fast Data Transfers
Do you work with files stored on external hard drives? You may not be getting the maximum performance from them. Many drive enclosures feature a FireWire 800 (1394b) interface, which provides up to twice the data transfer speeds and bandwidth of FireWire 400 (1394a), both critical attributes when working with multimedia applications. Don’t settle for a slower connection and less than maximum performance; get a Sonnet Allegro™ FW800 FireWire 800 adapter card to take advantage of the extra speed FireWire 800 offers.
Add 3 FireWire Ports Instantly!
Allegro FW800’s two external FireWire 800 ports guarantee you'll have the right connections for your fastest FireWire peripherals, and the speed and bandwidth required by video and pro audio applications. This card’s external FireWire 400 port makes it simple to connect older FireWire peripherals, no adapter necessary. Allegro FW800 is also supports bus-powered peripherals (devices that can work without a separate power supply, including some scanners and small external drives), so some devices can be plugged in and operate without an extra connection to a power supply. Offering plug and play simplicity(1), this card installs easily in any PCI or PCI-X slot, features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection support with automatic device configuration, and works with all industry standard FireWire 800 and FireWire 400 peripherals.
