FireWire 410 can even be completely bus-powered for total mobile operation*.

Overall: 9 out of 10 stars
I like the shape, the sound, the very very wide features. You need really take care of following : NEVER DISCONNECT OR POWER OFF THE DEVICE WITH THE COMPUTER IS ON. You can easy damage your firewire card ( or your motherboard). You MUST have a fireware card ( or motherboard) with Texas Instrument Chipset ( TI Chipset), Pyro, for exaple. If not you will have a lot of scratch and noise, Impossible to record !!. So don't start to work around drivers and similar stuffs...power on and power off... and so on. If you got problems , 99% are related to firewire interface.
