User reviews for Antec Datachute PCI
6.0 / 10Combined Score
Can't get Type II cards from my DataPAC to be recognized at all.
I had the above mentioned problem and could not obtain any support from Antec and was severely disappointed since the producted was depicted to be a multifunctional card reader that would work on Windows 2000. Next purchase would absolutely be from another vendor.
Sucks the big one when it comes to multifunction cards.
The DataChute PCI was easy enough to install in my Win 2000 PC but I could never get it to recognize a multifunction communications card (AirCard 510). I never had this problem with Win 98SE or on any laptop, so the PC Card is not the issue. Also, memory cards work like a charm in the DataChute. Your mileage may vary. Guess I will have to try another one or use Win98SE in a dual-boot configuration -- yuck!
I bought this product to use with my wireless LAN devices. It gave me much grief before i could pin down the cause of my problem. I have not tried it with a regular PCMCIA LAN card or memory devices. But I am sure that it has definite problems with SMC, or #COM wireless LAN cards.
