I'm using this item to connect my Canon Mini DV camcorder to a Panasonic DVD Recorder and it works fine. I would point out the connectors are not gold plated as they appear in the picture.

This product works immediately out of the box. However after about seven or so uses something happens and the cables don't work. As if there was a burn out of some sort. I have purchased two of these and it was the same result. You never see the problem coming. I'm a video journalist for a major NY newspaper website and it is the worst thing in the world to have a story due then have a cable suddenly just not function. You get what you pay for. There's a reason why the price is the price. Take your chances if your work doesn't matter. If your work means anything, invest in it.

What you pay is what you get. This is a cheap cable with very poor quality video/audio transfer. fuzzy lines and constant flicker on video. Used same TV set, same recorded footage from the same camcorder, same miniDV tape, and same DV recorder device; plus, used another cable of same type from Frys. Equal comparison - I am getting far better quality with comparable cable from Frys and better quality with my regular cheap AV cable. So, I will trash this cable.

Save your money- don't buy a cable that costs eighteen times as much. This cable worked great between my sony digital 8 camcorder and my toshiba dvd recorder.

Can't beat the price, and it's worked perfectly connecting my camcorder to both of my computers.

This cable was purchased for my sony digal video recorder. It works very well and allows my sony computer to control my camcorder. I recommend this cable, which does not come with any of the leading manufactuers. I would buy this again.

I bought this cable because it had so many good reviews. It worked the first few times I used it, but now when I capture video from my hv20, I get hundreds of dropped frames, in even 1 or 2 minutes of footage. Now I have to buy a brand new cable ... Ugh.

I admit, I was sceptical at first. A local store had an IEEE-1394 cable for $25. I received this $1 cable as promised - 2 meters (6 feet). I've tried it several times linking my HP Pavillion with a Sony digital/tape video camera and have had absolutely no problems. It works as it should, and I'll continue to use it. Some reviewers reported problems later with usage. I'll be sure to let you know if I have any in the future. So far, so good.

Seems to be a quality made cable. 4-pin to 4-pin firewire, used it to connect a Canon MiniDV camcorder to a Panasonic DVD recorder. The 3/16" outside diameter cable is fairly flexible. Made with a clear plastic covering over a silver braided shield. Smooth working connectors were easy to connect and disconnect. Can't beat the price.

The price for the cable is good. But during recording, sometime it lost conection, the recorder can not recognize the camcorder the cable connected, so I have to pull out and reconnect again.
