      This cable replaced the included (and flakey) USB3 cable for my Seagate GoFlex FreeAgent, and works like a charm. The Firewire 800 plug makes a solid connection and will not come out as easily as other FW800 cables because it is made of metal, not plastic.

      Transfer rates on my Unibody MacBook Pro reach up to 80 Megabytes per second which is double that of the USB2 transfer rate maximum. Considering my drive is a 1.5TB version, this cuts backups and data transfer significantly.

      I am 100% happy with this adapter. If you have Firewire available and are only using USB2 to do data transfers on your GoFlex FreeAgent, then do yourself a favor and get this cable. Not only would I recommend this, but I have been actively advising clients to purchase the GoFlex drives and get these upgrade cables if their computer has a FW800 port. After about 4 months, I haven't heard a single complaint.

      Pluses include an LED on the drive connection end that light up, letting you know the drive is still on.

      doesn't work

      Mac's Firewire only recognize up to 2T hard drive.
      so if you have a 3T exsternal hard drive this firewire cable will not work

        This adapter adds functionality to my DIT rig. I like having the ability to switch to FW800 when handing off drives to others. Way faster than USB 2.0

        Makes the GoFlex line of drive really sing.

            these are fantastic for what they do.
            just using them to plug in old 2.5" hard drives into and transfer data.
            BOOM!

              I purchased this adapter to be able to dump video footage from the Black Magic Cinema Camera, which records onto a 2.5" solid state drive. It worked like a charm, transfers very fast.

              I didn't experience any overheating (which was mentioned in a few reviews that I read). It got a little warm, but nothing out of the ordinary.

              I recently used in very heavily in the field, transferring 150-200 GB of ProRes footage daily for a week straight. It did fine.

              This was a must-have piece for me. Happy it worked out.

                              Super fast! Did a 50GB file transfer that took 1/2 the time of the transfer via usb 2.0 and iomega drive. This was a drive to drive transfer so it would be faster from my desktop probably.

                                    My HDD speed flies like a bullet with the Firewire 800 connection, as compared to USB 2.0.

                                    Buy this accessory before all stocks run out. Day might come when Seagate decides to disconn this accessory.

                                        Mac's Firewire only recognize up to 2T hard drive.
                                        so if you have a 3T exsternal hard drive this firewire cable will not work

                                            This cable has saved me alot of time when transferring files for backup. I don't have a USB3 on my Mac computer so this has been a life saver. It's fast and reliable.

                                                    Although some folks expressed uncertainty about the GoFlex Firewire adapter fitting my newer portable BackUp Plus, the unit works perfectly.

                                                    It's possible a Firewire adapter specifically designed for the Plus will be available this fall, but supposedly at a higher price.

                                                    Even the free shipping option even saw the unit reach me ahead of time.

                                                      Comments about Seagate STAE102 FireWire 800 FreeAgent GoFlex Upgrade Cable:

                                                      This cable replaced the included (and flakey) USB3 cable for my Seagate GoFlex FreeAgent, and works like a charm. The Firewire 800 plug makes a solid connection and will not come out as easily as other FW800 cables because it is made of metal, not plastic.

                                                      Transfer rates on my Unibody MacBook Pro reach up to 80 Megabytes per second which is double that of the USB2 transfer rate maximum. Considering my drive is a 1.5TB version, this cuts backups and data transfer significantly.

                                                      I am 100% happy with this adapter. If you have Firewire available and are only using USB2 to do data transfers on your GoFlex FreeAgent, then do yourself a favor and get this cable. Not only would I recommend this, but I have been actively advising clients to purchase the GoFlex drives and get these upgrade cables if their computer has a FW800 port. After about 4 months, I haven't heard a single complaint.

                                                      Pluses include an LED on the drive connection end that light up, letting you know the drive is still on.
