Other World Computing (OWC), which introduced its first FireWire 800 products last month with the Mercury Elite proFW800, has announced a FireWire 800 PCI Card and a new FireWire 800 external hard drive enclosure kit.
The US$79.95 FW800 PCI Card is an add-in card that supports the FireWire 800 standard; it’s also backward compatible with any FireWire 400 device. The card provides users with three nine-pin FireWire 800 ports.
OWC has also introduced a new FireWire 800 external hard drive enclosure kit that’s designed to support all 3.5-inch ATA/IDE hard drives. Costing $179.95, it includes two nine-pin FireWire 800 ports, one six-pin FireWire 400 port, and one five-pin USB 2.0/1.1 port.
