From the Manufacturer
Connect up to six FireWire peripherals to your computer. View larger.
The Belkin FireWire 6-Port Hub delivers efficient file sharing with data transfers to and from your iPod, external storage drive, DV camcorder, printer, scanner, and other FireWire devices using its six 6-pin FireWire ports. This configuration enables you to connect up to six FireWire devices to your computer or each other.
Beyond its no-nonsense handling of big file transfers like batches of high-resolution photos and HD videos, the FireWire Hub can also be used to connect multiple PS2 devices for head-to-head gaming.
Supports Transfer Speeds of 100, 200, and 400Mbps
The speed and dependability of FireWire technology keeps downloads, uploads, and game information moving seamlessly. The FireWire Hub features maximum transfer speeds of up to 400Mbps to optimize the performance of your latest, fastest accessories, but it's also compatible with older devices that have transfer speed capacities of 100 or 200Mbps.
Two Convenient Power Modes
Depending on your power needs, the FireWire Hub operates in either a self-powered mode that preserves the battery in your laptop, or in a bus-powered mode that eliminates the need for an extra open outlet--reducing the potential for cord tangles. In addition, when devices are connected to the FireWire Hub using FireWire cables, they can draw power from it for simplified system setup, device operation, and recharges.
Repeater Feature Extends Operation Distance for Versatility
The included FireWire repeater feature on the FireWire Hub extends the potential operation distance between your computer and your devices (or between two devices) by up to 15 feet (4.5 meters), which gives you more freedom in organizing devices in your office or media and gaming space.
Maximum System Compatibility with OHCI Support
For easy setup and hassle-free compatibility, the FireWire Hub supports the Open Host Controller Interface (OHCI) standard, so it can be used by the OHCI FireWire drivers that come with all modern operating systems.
The Belkin FireWire 6-Port Hub is backed by a lifetime warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
So, reluctantly, I picked this up and LO! on my Intel MacBook it was 100% plug and play. No software, no freezing, nothing but sweet FireWire action.
At this very moment I have a LaCie DVD Firewire drive, SeaGate 300GB Firewire drive, MOTU 8Pre Firewire Interface and a Canon DV Recorder all plugged in with one more port to spare. I was having trouble daisy chaining all of them before and so far (a few hours) everything has been running great. If I have any trouble I'll update this review.
My only critique is that the hub is so small and light weight it sort of need to be pinned down, otherwise it'll go where ever the wires take it. Just FYI.
I could not see any performance drop-off when using the hub with one device. (Duplication of a 500-MB blank disc image file on a 250GB LaCie Porsche drive took 30 sec whether the cable was connected directly or indirectly via the Belkin hub to an Intel duo-core Mac mini.)
One warning though: do not connect or disconnect a cable to any Firewire port while burning a DVD on an external Firewire optical drive. You will abort the process with an "unstable interface" error and get a disc only suitable as a coaster!

Great product! Works as described. We have several optical drives, Hds, and tape deck attached for our video editing. Pricey, I believe it now sells for almost $170! Read morePublished 14 months ago by RCFOTO
Doesn't work in a daisy chain manner. Didn't work for my purpose. Haven't hooked it up to my 400 to 800 drives yet to see how they communicate. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Richard Carter
This hub is compact and takes up very little space on my desk. Does it's job and works as expected.Published on May 31, 2014 by Carolyn E. Harmon
