Pro Tools Interface on a budget

I'm looking for an interface that's Pro Tools 11 compatible, but I am on a budget. I've got $250 to spend and I'm looking for something with 8 i/o, preferably firewire 800 and MIDI. I was thinking about the Behringer FCA1616 because it has 8 dedicated i/o plus 8 inserts, but I've heard nothing but bad things about behringer products, although I've never personally used one so I can't confirm those reviews.

I would suggest saving about another 100$ and check out something like a used motu 8pre. It has everything you are lookin for plus awesome pre amps and d/a conversion. That's what I use and its a huge step up from cheaper interfaces! In the 250$ price range you could also check out something like a presonus firepod. But I heard the pres on it aren't so groovy. But I never owned one, so who knows!

I have to agree. I saw a lot of great reviews for that product.
