Compact reliable adapter


from Wilmington DE  -  Quality Oriented

Using it to connect my firewire 400 video camera through another adapter (Firewire 800 to Thunderbolt) to my new iMac which has no firewire inputs. It works perfectly and a major advantage is the short length of the cable which doesn't clutter my work area with excess wiring, of which I have enough already.


Fast service


from Maine  -  Quality Oriented

I had a graphics card go out my PowerBook and needed to get the files off of it, onto my desktop. I ordered this adapter to fit my desktop's FireWire connector. Service was very fast and it got to me in only a couple of days. Very happy with Adorama!

from Meadville, pa  -  Quality Oriented

I recently purchase a newer mac mini. I notice the firewire port was deferent then the older ones, founded on the apple cinema display, and apple isight webcam. after some research and I found this adapter been the most affordable solution, Also its match the connectors for the apple isight webcam, and the apple cinema display perfectly. Adapter works as intended. I highly recommended this adapter to those who would like to keep they older apple isight webcam, and apple cinema displays in used with newer apple equipment.

Roger T  I'd heard that some of the hard adaptors prevented use of adjacent ports. This one works fine and allows complete access to the adjacent ports.
