Sonnet has reduced the price of its Tango FireWire/USB PCI combo-card.

The card now costs £75. It connects devices to a PCI Macintosh and connects to peripherals including scanners, printers, game controllers, digital cameras and PDAs.

The Tango card has a range of features. Its USB Power Fault Detection switches off the USB power if the device is drawing too much energy.

It has a resettable fuse on each FireWire port, protecting it from damage when too much current is drawn. Also, the card's Bridge Chip maximizes PCI performance for the interface and all five peripheral ports, according to Sonnet.
