            The salesperson was very professional in offering a solution to my problem having previously purchased a defective Fire Wire cable elsewhere that was incompatible with my Panasonic DVX108B high end camera tethered to a PC running Corel Video. The salesman new exactly what the problem was, and solved it. I would have ended up paying for a DVD portable recorder that would have played back my DV tapes for transferring video data to edit. Another salesman showed me how to use Boot Camp to partition my MacPro so that I could have two operating systems on one unit. Great work B & H.

              Right out of the bag you can feel that this cable is sturdy. The extra Shielding almost seems a little too thick. The outside rubber is soft and flexible, and the connectors seem to be molded well enough that you shouldn't have to worry about strain on the connectors. I am fine with the thickness of this cable, but i have a feeling that some people would prefer a thinner cable that be more flexible or wrap smaller for throwing in a already cluttered camera bag.

                  Perfect for connecting a firewire 400 device to a firewire 800 port, or I suppose vice versa. I have an old firewire audio interface running into my mac's firewire port and there is no latency. Great value.

                    Quite long, making it easy to work with practically any desktop/laptop setup. Also very thick and sturdy. Don't expect any connection problems with this one anytime soon.
