The elago FireWire 400 to 800 Adapter for the MacBook Pro works as advertised.

It solves a problem I have perfectly and I saved money over what I would have paid if I had bought it in a store, such as Best Buy.

When I ordered my new Mac Mini computer, I didn't realize it only had the newer Firewire 800 port and wouldn't connect to my older Firewire 400 devices out of the box. I tried a couple of local shops (who I won't name here) with "Computer Experts" onsite to help with such problems. One store expert attempted to get me to purchase an adapter cable for nearly $50 and the other store expert apparently wasn't familiar with this "new fangled Faarwaer" interface (sarcaasm intended).

I did an online search, found this product, purchased it. Upon arrival, plugged the adapter into my Mac Mini, plugged my legacy Firewire 400 device cable into other end of the adapter, and was back in business, no sweat!

Wish I had ordered this in the first place instead of dealing with those "experts"...

I needed a way to connect an older Apple iSight camera to a newer Mac mini and the Apple supplied cable wouldn't work with the new Firewire 800 ports. Unfortunately, newer Firewire 800 cables wouldn't fit in the special stands for the iSight. This adapter allowed the older Firewire 400 to connect perfectly. A great solution.

I bought this so that I could connect my old Panasonic Digital Video Camcorder to my newer iMac. Worked great, connected the fire wire cable that came with the camcorder to the newer fire wire 800 port. I was able to transfer my daughters graduation video over with no problems!

This adapter does exactly what it is intended to do, convert from firewire 400 to 800. Straight forward requirement with the rewards of being able to use firewire 400 components with my MacBook pro, simple but effective!

Very nice adapter. It solves a problem I have perfectly and I saved money over what I would have paid if I had bought it in a store, such as Best Buy. The transaction was fine, no problems. Delivery was quick and the product was exactly as described and works perfectly. Buy this with confidence, it will work. Some cables don't fit exactly correct, this takes care of that problem.

This little device does work with the FireWire 800!! My Sony camcorder use the 800, but the MacBook Pro 13 doesn't support it!! Oh well, for a few dollars, this is well worth it. Quality is very good. I hope to do a product review soon...Good Luck and keep Shooting!

Item converts older Firewire 400 to the newer Firewire 800 ports. I use it to convert analog camcorder footage through a Hollywood Dazzle analog to digital converter for editing on my Mac. It works with no signs of any signal degradation.
