                My new Mac mini has only the new 9-pin FireWire input. My 6 year old Mac mini had the 6-pin input. This cable allows me to use the old accessories without any hassle.

                                            Good cable, but well, it's still only a cable, no magic here.
                                            Have only had it for a couple of days, so I can't say much about it's reliability, but it looks and feels pretty study, and I expect it to last quite a while under normal use. The cable itself is pretty thick and heavy, as are the connectors.
                                            Any cable will eventually break when abused, and I don't think this will be any different.

                                            I use it to daisy chain my various Firewire devices (Glyph HD's, Mbox, etc), and it does a great job.
