No drivers or software applications to install. But how to do it? No drivers or other setup necessary, it works right out of the box.

Video quality was excellent, audio quality was excellent. The only negative I can see is that even though the product writeup claims that power is not required if one uses a 6pin-6pin firewire connection, that proved to be false in the case of laptops it worked as advertised for my desktop system.

The optional power supply for the box really should have been included for the price- or at a competitive bundle price!
