I can tell you that since I replaced my Hiface 2 with the unit I posted I have not had a single issue, About 1 in 4 boots my Hiface 2 was not recognized by the windows 7 system. I had to disconnect the device and reconnect to get it to be recognized. The Gustard has worked every time as it should. I was not aware that they had any bios update available for the Hiface 2?
no it was a motherboard bios update.
some of the fixes listed on later bios versions, than the version i had, addressed usb issues.
so far it is working ok. but then it could for months at a time before.
what i have noticed though is everything seems faster on my pc, including start-up which is now just 45 seconds.
