Product Description

AmazonBasics products are quality electronics accessories offered at a great value.

Amazon.com

The AmazonBasics IEEE 1394 4-Pin/6-Pin FireWire Cable is a natural way to connect any peripheral that has an IEEE1394 400 port such as digital cameras, network attached storage devices, external hard drives, and printers.


High-quality, gold-plated connectors help resist corrosion for a long life and signal purity.

Recommended Uses:
  • Connecting audio/visual peripherals and multimedia devices to your computer
  • Connecting peripherals to your computer such as digital video cameras and fast external hard drives
  • Connecting two compatible devices directly for peer-to-peer device communication without a computer, such as between a scanner and a printer

Technical Specifications:
  • Connector Type: IEEE1394 4P male to 6P male; solder type w/metal shell
  • Connector Plating: Gold
  • Cable Length: 6 ft./1.8 m
  • Transfer Speed: 400 Mbps
  • Jacket: PVC, black
  • Warranty: AmazonBasics 1-Year Limited Warranty [PDF]
  • Documentation: Helpful Hints [PDF]
Built for High-Speed Transfer of Multimedia Content
Also known by the brand names FireWire (Apple), i.LINK (Sony), and Lynx (Texas Instruments), the IEEE1394 interface offers high-speed communication and real-time data transfer, making it a great choice for connecting data storage devices and digital video cameras. In fact, IEEE1394 is the primary interface used for nearly all high-end professional audio and visual equipment.

Plug-and-Play Capability
Although the cable doesn't require a host computer to operate, giving it a distinct advantage over USB cables, it features plug-and-play functionality for those times when you wish to connect to your machine. This means that by connecting an IEEE 1394-enabled device to your computer, your operating system will auto-detect the device and ask for a driver disk. If the driver is already installed, your computer will immediately start "talking" to the device.

IEEE 1394 devices are also hot-pluggable, which means that they can be connected and disconnected at any time--even with the device and computer powered on--without harming the device or compromising your data.

Since 2003 many computers intended for home or professional audio/video use have built-in FireWire/i.LINK ports. Full support for IEEE 1394 is available for Microsoft Windows XP, Linux, Apple Mac OS 8.6 through Mac OS 9, and Mac OS X and greater.

Manufactured for Performance and Durability
The AmazonBasics IEEE 1394 4-Pin/6-Pin FireWire Cable features gold-plated connectors for high-level conductivity and durability. The cable is built with shielding and a durable, black PVC outer jacket.

Customer Reviews

A little tight fit on one end so be careful and don't say it doesn't fit.

Go to any Staples, Radio Shack, OfficeMax, Best Buy, etc. and you'll be lucky if you can find this same cable for less than thirty dollars.

The cable works perfectly to connect my Digital-8 camcorder to my computer to capture video.

After spending a frustrating hour at Fry's trying (and failing) to get some basic information to purchase a firewire that was inexpensive but guaranteed good quality transfer, I went home empty-handed. Then I went on Amazon.com, found exactly what I wanted with a complete description, guarantee and low cost. The firewire arrived within two days, and immediately I was capturing high-quality video for editing on Final Cut Pro. As one of the last brick and mortar electonics stores still in business, Fry's will probably be the next to go -- based on the employees' complete lack of interest in helping their "customers." They lost the firewire sale and the VHS conversion-to-digital deal.

I purchased this firewire cable to convert my miniDV camcorder tapes to a digital format on my PC. It worked great. The cable seems to be high quality and costs less than 25% of what it would cost in a big box store. Great value!

I am so excited to see Amazon taking on the big retailers and offering cables that are appropriately priced. Go to any Staples, Radio Shack, OfficeMax, Best Buy, etc. and you'll be lucky if you can find this same cable for less than thirty dollars. It's downright criminal. This Amazon cable fit my camcorder and Mac perfectly, and performs just as well as those name brand cables that cost five times as much. Save your money, and buy it here. End of story.

I ordered this cable for a firewire drive enclosure. I assumed it would just be an inexpensive FireWire cable with a thin jacket and little shielding. I was wrong. The cable itself is sturdy, has a nice thick jacket, and works perfectly. I've used it to capture video and attach storage to a laptop, and so far it has worked flawlessly.

I rate things as follows:
1 star - Far below expectations / Completely unsatisfactory
2 star - Below expectations / Unsatisfactory
3 star - Met expectations / Satisfactory
4 star - Exceeded expectations / Very satisfactory
5 star - Far exceeded expectations / Beyond satisfactory

This item gets a Five-Star rating for being an excellent example of what it is, a 4-pin/6-pin firewire cable. I can use it for something, I'm sure, a video camera perhaps.

I myself get ZERO Stars for confusing this item with a 400-800 Firewire cable to use with my new MacBook Pro. Belkin 6ft FIREWIRE 800/400 Cable ( F3N403-06-APL )

Cable is not too thin and fragile looking, gold plated connectors, and works fine.

The main attraction here would be the decent price and the excellent packaging. If you've ever had to open retail cables in their blister packs you'll appreciate the cable being packed in a small, nondescript cardboard box.

The cable works perfectly and it was great to just open a box and use it as opposed to fighting the typical hard plastic shell!

Ordered this cable instead of the less expensive Belkin cable because it has pretty, shiny gold plated contacts. The cable I received was flakey - the small end didn't make consistent contact with mating connectors in either of two different devices. I have another cable that I used to verify that all of the connections should work. After procrastinating for a couple of months, I contact Amazon and they arranged a no-cost warrantee replacement. The second cable that I received was stone cold dead. Again, I contacted Amazon, and this time they refunded my original purchase price and gave me free 2-day shipping on the Belkin cable. THANK YOU AMAZON CUSTOMER SERVICE for making this as relatively painless as you could.
