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
It's OK. Unfortunately, there are not that many different FireWire 400 hubs available on the market today that are cost effective. I'm not that pleased with the product, but it serves its purpose. . .for two days.
After several attempts to re-install this unit I realized that, unfortunately, it did not work afterall. In an attempt to return the product, Amazon dropped the ball. The interesting part of the return process was the follow-up initiated by the seller. After several weeks of NOT HEARING from Amazon, the seller contacted me to find out how things were going. After a good exchange of what was happening, the seller made good on my purchase. That follow-up and concern to right a wrong is really an indication of the sellers true interest and concern to satisfy the customer. Needless to say, you don't get that kind of service from most sellers! Congratulations to the seller for a job well done!
6 ports at a very good price.
Buss or self powered.
One high quality 6 pin/6pin cable ~5' long supplied.
Power cord from the wall wart is nice and long.
Packaging is really hard to get open.
Bulky wall wart; will take up two positions on many power strips and has to go in the bottom socket on a wall socket.
No compatibility list, but so far so good. (I will post back with any incompatibilities found.
Durability unknown, but time will tell. (I have had problems with other vendor's 1394 hubs.)
No power/activity indicators.
I had an older Belkin Firewire hub which worked perfectly for about 6 or 7 years, so when it started acting up, I cheerfully replaced it without reservation, with this new model.
It works fine with my hard drives, but consistently makes me disconnect and reconnect a digital camera that I plug into it. I never had that problem with the previous hub. I thought the problem might be a faulty wire so I have tried several different ones with the same spotty results.
Additionally, some months later, my imac developed start up, and restart problems. The machine would not start or restart. I discovered that unplugging the hub from the mac allowed normal restarts, after which, I could plug in the hub and use it. That seems to have ironed itself out although I have no idea why.
