Using this adapter plus a standard FW800 cable I can connect to my FW800 based external hard drives.
Using this adapter plus a 9-pin to 6-pin (FW800 to FW400) cable I can connect to my FW400 based external hard drives.
Works flawlessly - no problems running SuperDuper! or TimeMachine to my external hard drives via this adapter.
I use this adapter with three drives attached at the same time and it works fine: two AC-powered drives and a bus-powered drive.
The Apple website states that this adapter provides up to 7W of bus power, so daisy chaining bus-powered devices is theoretically possible if you stay under the 7W limit - but I don't think you can find two hard drives that would consume less than 7W of power.
When traveling I frequently clone my primary machine whole to my Air, before this adapter I had to go through a complex and lengthy processes of cloning through intermediate drives. Now I can just mount the Air as an external drive and clone SSD -> SSD. Awesome!
