Years ago, it wasn't that uncommon for new computers or notebooks running Windows to have a FireWire port but as the years went by Mac computers are the only brand that really continued to support FireWire. If you need FireWire and more eSATA ports a new host card called the NitroAV fusion pro is available that will be perfect for you.
The card slips into a PCIe x4 slot and adds two external FireWire 800 ports and one internal FireWire 800 port. The host card also has an optional internal power connector to offer power over the FireWire ports as well.
The host adapter also adds two external eSATA 3Gbps ports for connecting external storage devices. The host card supports Mac, Windows, and Linux computers and is available now for $129.95. Until November 18, you can get $10 off the host card with the coupon code FUSIONPRO.
