I was worried to get this because of the low ratings and was about to get a expensive one, but I didnt and I'm glad I got this, it is very cheap, reliable, and fast shipping.
One thing to note when using a FireWire device on a computer that has been upgraded to Windows 7 or a device that was manufactured before Windows 7 (and hasn't explicitly upgraded its drivers to Windows 7 yet). Go to Start Menu-->Contol Panel-->Device Manager. Expand the IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers and check to see that it says (Legacy). If it does not, double click on the entry and click the Driver tab. Click "Update Driver..." and "Browse My computer for Driver Software." Then click "Let me pick from a list of devices on my computer." Select the driver that ends with (Legacy)and click next to install the driver.
Failure to install the Legacy driver with older equipment will cause all sorts of trouble (including hard Blue Screen Crashes) that will have nothing to do with the FireWire Cable regardless of what you might otherwise be led to believe by your very frustrating experience.
Again, this is a great cable and worth more than many cables that cost much more!

2. "Quad shielding rejects RF and EM interference".
3. "Gold-plated connectors improve signal transfer".
Definitely not gold plated. Not the same insulation as pictured (so how can we know about the shielding?). No brand name, Phoenix or otherwise. on the plain plastic bag it came in. So, mis-advertised on three counts.
Okay, I paid a whopping $1.08. But I expect to get the item described, regardless. SO CHANGE THE DAMNED MISLEADING DESCRIPTION if you're not providing the "Phoenix Gold". The item was shipped and received promptly (thank you). But based on this relatively minor aggravation, would I order again from this seller? Absolutely not.
