Rating: 5/5 Excellent, as usual. March 31, 2016 I've been ordering hard drives, RAM and other computing accessories from OWC for over 16 years. Never had a problem with any of their products.

This 2-inch NewerTech FireWire 800 9-Pin to FireWire 400 6-Pin Adapter works flawlessly.

Rating: 5/5 Just what I needed! February 26, 2015 With THIS ADAPTER, plus a FW800 - FW400 adapter cable, plus a FW400 cable, I'm sure to have the right cable to connect to a new or old ailing Mac to run Disk Utility, do a system install or just transfer large numbers of files quickly.

Rating: 5/5 As Advertised January 15, 2015 I upgraded to a 2012 Mac mini that only had FW 800 port and my external drive was FW 400 connection only. Plugged in the adapter and FW 400 cable, activated the drive and it mounted and works like it should.

Rating: 5/5 Preserving older FW devices June 18, 2014 Apple keeps charging ahead, but we all have investment in devices from the "old" technology. Handy little things like this help us move ahead and continue to utilize our legacy equipment. Get an 800 to Thunderbolt cable to go with it.

Rating: 4/5 Works great! December 10, 2013 I've used this for roughly 3 years and it's never once failed me. Only minor complaint is that the FW 800 side is plastic and is a bit loose, but I've never had any disconnects because of this.

Rating: 5/5 Exactly what I wanted very reasonably priced July 29, 2013 Thanks OWC, a simple adaptor (9-pin (FW800) to 6-pin (FW400) connector adapter) that made it possible to connect an older iSight to my Mac Mini - and now I have a microphone and video! Extremely prompt, professional service and communication - 5 days from order to delivery, including a weekend, with emails sent promptly with a tracking number too. Found the link on a discussion forum. Sometimes...technology rocks! A very satisfied customer!

Rating: 5/5 Works perfectly February 23, 2013 I ordered the item a little time ago and was surprised how quickly I received it.

I works well in order to connect my MacBook Pro 13" with my old external iSight camera and I am now able to use it again.

Rating: 5/5 This product works perfect! July 15, 2011 I needed an adapter to use with my firewire 400 products with my newer Mac Mini and Macbook Pro that only comes with firewire 800 port. Plugged in the adapter and started importing video immediately! Extremely easy to plug-in and doesn't take away from the Mac hardware functionality and look.
