              This piece is ridiculously hard to find so I was very happy to locate it. I needed to connect a Seagate GoFlex FW800 drive to an old G4 Mac Mini and this accomplishes that task perfectly. It just has one job and it does it very well.

                Comments about GGI FireWire 800 9-pin Female to FireWire 400 6-pin Female Adapter:

                I bought this to adapt a Seagate GoFlex FreeAgent Drive with a Firewire 800 adapter to a Firewire 400 port on an older MacBook. Since the drive is bus powered, I was a bit worried the connection might be flakey, but since both ends are metal, the connection is solid and reliable.

                The sad thing is these adapters are harder to find than one would think, so I am grateful that B&H stocks them. Add to that their low price, and you have a great alternative to carrying around a separate FW800 (9pin) to FW400 (6pin) cable.

                      It is exactly what it claims to be, doesnt seem cheap and so far has been adequate for my needs. Bought it because I had to buy firewire hub and used alot of 9 pins.

                            I was surprised by how hard it was to find a Firewire 800 female to Firewire 400 female adapter. This one works great and I readily recommend it.
