I have just purchased my Sony Handycam MiniDV camera (thanks for the help guys ), and I now need a firewire card and cord.
I bought both a card (3 port IEE 1394 PCI Host adapter), and cord (6 pin to 4 pin) in a bundle for around $70. I later realized that this was most likely waaayyy more than I should have paid (I just got home from the shop, in fact).
So, I did a little research to see if I could find a better price. Of course, I did. However, the find is SO cheap, that I'm wondering if it's even the same thing.
Here is a link to the product, so you folks may be able to tell me that either "this is a steal, and to buy it right away", or "this is something different that you don't need, and keep looking".
Thanks for any input.
