        I gave a Mac G5 to an old friend and needed this cable to do the migration of files. The [@] store wanted $30 for the same set up, this was [$]. It did the job, and I saved $23 and ended up with a smile too.

          I got this cable because I needed it to connect my computer to my video converter. My mac only has an 800 pin and the convert has a 400 pin. Why so many devices can't just use the same versions, I don't know. Either way, this cable bridged the gap. Seamless flow, and now everything works great.

            I use the product to connect an APOGEE DUET interface with a MACBook Pro - firewire 400 out of the Apogee - firewire 800 into the MAC. This cable is solid, thick and not easily disconnected like my other cable. For the price, you cannot go wrong!

              Comments about Pearstone FireWire 400 9-Pin to 6-Pin Cable - 6' (1.8 m):

              I have an Mbox Pro 3 and a MBP 2012 so I needed a FireWire connection to merge the two different connections. Every place in my area (local-retailers) wanted $25-30 bucks for this type of cable which is far too much. The price I paid for this cable isn't even 4 times what local retailers are asking, great buy very happy with product. The 800 end of the cable doesn't fit as tightly as the 400 side but it fulfills its purpose and for under [$] bucks you shouldn't have any complaints.

                      Works perfectly for transferring my photos from my Macbook Pro laptop to my external hard drive! Firewire works much faster than a USB connection. It was exactly the cord I was looking for.

                        Tremendous cost to performance ratio. Use this cable from my Belkin Thunderbolt hub to a firewire external HDD for backup.

                                        Does exactly what it needs to do. It's a good length and not too short like some cables are. The 9-pin end goes into my Macbook Pro, and the 6-pin to my audio interface. Works perfectly.

                                        I use this cable to connect my Drobo External hard drive to my Dell computer. I was having trouble with my USB 2 connection and this worked perfect. Not only corrected the connection problem, but also increased my transfer speed.
