      Purchased a new iMac. Discovered it has Firewire 800. Our other MacBookPros have 400. When I discovered this converter from 400 to 800, it fit our need perfectly.

      The B&H information was just enough to determine it was the likely the correct component. Would have been better with a close-up of each connector end of the unit.

      I bough this to adapt the Firewire cable from my Sony HVR-Z1U to my new iMac. The cable works perfectly on my old Mac Book Pro with the 400 port. The Camera is not recognized on either the new iMac or the old Mac Book Pro using this adaptor to access the 800 port!

      I needed this when I went to a 2012 Mac Pro, which only has Firewire 800, from my old 2008 Mac Pro, which still had Firewire 400.

      I plugged it in, and plugged in my Firewire 400 device, and everything just worked.

      The only thing is that it's almost all plastic, which I fear would crack if things were being plugged or unplugged frequently.

      Comments about Newer Technology FireWire 800-400 Adapter:

      Small great I need to transfer my old sony video camera content into external drive I think this would be great for the transfer. I'll use my 3 year old MacBook Pro that still has the FireWire 800 for this mission before I upgrade to a newer machine that has nothing but thunderbolt and USB 3.

                          Very handy. Apple keeps moving forward, the rest of us like to get the full use out of our gear before upgrading to something that might not work yet. This adapter lets me keep all my firewire 400 camera able to xfer to final cut on the new macs. Love it. I got two. Works great.

                                      Recently I replaced my vintage Mac Power G5 computer with a MacMini and discovered that it had no FireWire 400 ports. This device allowed me to connect my external harddrive and monitor firewire ports in series to the MiniComputer. I use the firewire port on the monitor for the IChat camera. I tried to get an adaptor at the [@]but they did not have it. Delivery from B&H was excellent and I had it in 3 days in time for a Xmaa IChat.

                                        I recently bought a Macbook Pro which comes with Firewire800 and Thunderbolt. I have several firewire400 devices that are critical to me, 1) Sony VX-2100 video camera, 2) Canopus ADVC10 digital converter and 3) a bunch of Firewire400 hard drives. This affordable adapter worked great with all of these devices and will save me money in not having to upgrade my devices to Firewire800.

                                          This adapter works fine but is easily dislodged if you are doing anything with connections on the back of the computer.
