Customer Reviews

This is about the simplest item one could buy.
Kate Stokes
It works perfectly for connecting my Firewire 400 external hard drive to my new Mac with Firewire 800 connections.
Mark VII
It wasn't white like I saw in the pic, but black also goes with my MacBook Pro.

I had an older digital video camera with a firewire 400 cable. Just bought new Macbook Pro, which only has firewire 800 input. Did some research & I first bought a cable that stated it went from 800 to 400. It did, but both ends were male. Had to return it.
Went to local electronics stores & they were not helpful. Most didn't even know this product existed & they tried to sell me other cables for 20 bucks each!
This $8 adapter is ALL you need to go from 400 firewire device into 800 port. Don't let anyone sell you anything else.
Just transferred hours of video & it worked great!

The new aluminum iMacs come with a single firewire 400 port and a firewire 800 port. Unfortunately, there's still very little firewire 800 hardware out there, and some of us have a bunch of firewire 400 devices. This adapter works perfectly (at least it has so far) and allows me to now have two reliable firewire 400 connections on the iMac. It should come in the box with every iMac.

Does it's job - just wish it was a little slimmer - I'm a using a 17 mbp unibody and using firewire next to the ethernet port and USB ports is a pretty tight fit

Most of you will choose this item versus others because its shown as White to match your other MAC cables.
When I received mine, they were BLACK in color. This is misleading advertising.

My firewire cable did not fit into the socket on the new IMac. Then I got this. The cable fit in one side, and the other side fit into the socket on the computer. And it worked. The end.

I bought a new 24 inch iMac, and it inexplicably came without a Firewire 400 port. I have an external drive that I couldn't even connect, and I was afraid I was going to have to buy a new one until I found this product. I plugged it in, then plugged in my drive, and it worked perfectly. I can import my video from my camera with no problems. This is a great product...

Works as advertised ! A little pricey ! AND longer than I thought it would be. Mine came in WHITE for some reason. I use it with an Intel Mac, and FW HD.

I'm happy with it.
