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.
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!
Reliable adaptor for connecting Firewire 400 devices to Firewire 800 equipment. Bought one two years ago to connect an external drive to a MacPro. Have had no issues with. Bought a second adaptor to connect a Firewire 400 compactflash reader to a MacBook Pro. No issues so far.
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.
