Rating: 5/5 Extends the use of external hardrive August 8, 2015 I ordered this cable to use my 1.0TB OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro Portable FW800&400/USB3 drive with my vintage g4 powerbook. This option doubled the value of the hardrive for me.

Rating: 4/5 It's a short converter cable January 12, 2015 It was a while ago that I purchased this so I believe I'm right in saying that this was an add-on item, offered as I was checking out. I opted for it for at the time I was interested in these converters, FireWire 400 to 800 since my MacBook Pro had an FW800 port and all my external drives were FW400. I added it to my order without giving much thought to the dimensions. In case you haven't thought about it, 12" is not long for a cable between your computer and peripheral. I've used it primarily as a connector for a Time Machine backup drive with my MacBook Pro. It would awkward to say the least to use this with a desktop. The cable is not made for that, it's made to connect an external device that will sit close to your computer on a desk. It does what it does well and transfer speeds have been the same as they have with other more expensive cables of this sort I've used.

As of this writing, I've placed a second hard drive into my MBP and use it as an always connected backup. I've passed this cable on to a friend with her first Mac (13" MacBook Pro) which she uses at a desk where her external backup sits next to her computer. It works well

Rating: 5/5 If you have a MacBook Pro, you need this January 11, 2013 I always have used Apple computers. But they sometimes make BAD decisions. One of the worst is removing FW400 to leave place to that stupid FW800 port that causes problems to a lot of people. To be forgotten, they should include this FW800/FW400 adapter with every machine they sell !

Lucky there is OWC.
