      I bought this cable so I could transfer files from an old computer to my new one. It worked great! Transfer speed was very fast - I'm not sure of an exact number here, but moving many gigs of files and applications took under an hour. The flat construction, while stylish, is a little tough to maneuver between two computers as it does not exactly bend the way you want. Other than that, a great item at a really great price!

      These cables failed frequently, and were extremely unreliable. Drives and card readers would not mount when attached via these cables on any of our 3 office macs, only worked when we switched cable brands. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

        Used it from a mac mini to hard drive. Great product and built really well.
        Cheap price, but not a cheap cable.

          I find the orange color aesthetically pleasing (you get tired of grey, white and black only), but the main advantage of this cable is its ribbon shape - much fewer tangles than the circular cross section cables.

                  This cable is cheap and effective. I use it to daisy chain my glyph drive to my mbox pro and it works great! Why pay 10x the amount for a cable in another place when this does the job well? Great cable and the styling is pretty nice as well.

                      Thought it was a good design, but did a poor job of transferring video files. I thought it was my drive or computer until I tried another cable.

                      Might be useful for smaller files, but not for large ones.

                        Works great. I needed to attach some older firewire 400 gear to a new Mac Mini that only had firewire 800. Did the trick!

                          I needed a cable adapter so that I could use an FW 800 external HD on my little travel Macbook 13inch that has only a FW 400 port. I stopped in the B&H store and asked for such a thing and the helpful sales person recommended this over the adapter. It cost 1/2 as much and works like a charm.

                              I use a number of firewire audio interfaces and have always had the problem of carrying around loads of cable with excessively rigid shielding. The LaCie slim firewire cables are a life saver. If cable management is a pain, try these instead.

                                It worked really well for migrating data with Migration Assistant from my old Mac to my new Macbook Pro. Looks really nice too. I'll keep it for use with external hard drives.

                                  I love the color so it stands out from all the other black boring cables. The FW800 to Fw400 is great for connecting my older hard drives and newer laptop.

                                      I use this to connect my hpx to an Imac. Transfer is fine, only problem is it does not stay flat and tends to coil a bit.

                                        Cable is extremely thin, but very sturdy. It's been great.

                                          This cable is very inexpensive, and works perfectly fine for my pro-audio production needs.

                                          That said, the flat ribbon cable design of this product makes it extremely difficult to manage. Unless you physically tie it down, it does not lie flat and springs up into annoying loops. If this is the kind of thing that bothers you, shell out the extra 6 bucks for a standard cable.

                                                Nice cable, does what it's supposed to.

                                                Caveat: Being flat not round it is a bit less flexible than the usual round cables. However, it is really flat which can be desirable in some cases.

                                                  I purchased this to connect my LaCie firewire harddrive to the computer. I lost the original cable. This cable is great because it is high quality, it works really well with good connection points, and the best thing about it is the color makes easy to identify when searching for it with all of my other equipment so it saves me time looking. Oh yeah, it is quite affordable too.
