FirewireDirect to Ship $99.95 FireWire/USB 2.0 PCI Card

Company Says It's the First Card Under $100 To Combine FireWire/USB 2.0 By Charlie White
FirewireDirect.com, Inc., will soon ship a FireWire/USB Combo PCI Card for updating desktop computers to FireWire. With support for the newer, faster USB 2.0 standard, it will replace the company's FireWire/USB PCI product and be what the company says is the first combo card of this type to be available for computer users under $100.

Starting today and until the card ships on December 10, FirewireDirect is also offering a limited time pre-order special, extending free shipping on orders placed for ground delivery in the Continental United States.


Powering from the computer's PCI bus, the card features 4 auto speed selectable Type A USB ports (3 external and 1 internal) supporting all USB speeds, from the OHCI based 12 Mbits/second USB 1.1 to the high-speed EHCI based 480 Mbits/second USB 2.0.

USB 2.0 is 40 times faster than current USB 1.1, offering speed increases in peripheral data transfer for USB 2.0 based printers, scanners, hard disks, digital still cameras, Web cams and other devices. The FirewireDirect FireWire/USB 2.0 Combo PCI Host Adapter Card will integrate with all USB devices including those not yet capable of the new higher speed USB standard.

Like the company's previous FireWire/USB combo card, the card also features four (3 external and 1 internal) 400 Mbits/second 6pin FireWire ports.

The FirewireDirect FireWire/USB 2.0 Combo PCI Host Adapter Card is for sale now at the FirewireDirect Web site, priced at $99.95.

More information about the company and its line of FireWire products can be found at firewiredirect.com.
