Rating: 5/5 Newer Tech FireWire 800/400 9 pin to 6 pin April 23, 2015 Works like it is supposed to. Have an Intel Mac Mini with 800, need to connect to a FireWire 400 external HDA.for backup. Works really well, no complaints.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 excellent cable, very durable November 14, 2014 I bought this years ago, to hook up firewire 400 to firewire 800. I have a fire wire 800 port on my late 2012 mac mini. I have a fire wire 400 port on my late 2008 mac book.

Rating: 4/5 Stiff but Durable July 16, 2014 Cables such as this have become important to me as Apple has made current Macs with Firewire 800 connectors yet my old peripherals (drives, etc) still have 400 ports. This one is durable, shielded and a good length. However, due to it's thickness it is not that flexible. This means, coming off of a port, this cable makes a wide loop as one bends it around desk and chair to peripheral. Stiff, it'll resist damage but some of its usefulness is taken away when it's just impossible to maneuver it behind a desk or simply to a device sitting next to your laptop or CPU. Worse, as bad as it sticks out of a (particularly front) port damage could come to the port from snagging or knocking the excess cable. In other words, this cable is best if it's to be installed between a computer and a peripheral that isn't going to be moved much from a back port of a desktop.

Otherwise, this is a typical cable with typical usefulness when used as an adapter piece.
