The 4-Port FireWire-400 Repeater and Hub from Comprehensive/Kramer turns 1 FireWire-400 port on your computer system into 4. The hub also acts as a repeater, allowing you to double the length that FireWire cable can be run from 14.75' (4.5 m) to 29.5' (9 m). Multiple repeaters can be cascaded to achieve a maximum length of 236' (72 m)

FireWire-400 supports data transfer bandwidth of up to 50 MB/sec, making it an ideal solution for high performance external storage devices. Users who have multiple FireWire-400 devices and only not enough ports on their computer or need to connect remote FireWire devices to a computer will find this hub and repeater to be an ideal solution to meet their needs.

Expandability
The hub turns 1 FireWire-400 port into 4, allowing you to more easily connect multiple FireWire-400 devices to your computer.
Repeater Functionality
You can use this hub to repeat FireWire-400 signals, allowing you to connect devices that are physically further away from your computer than the FireWire standard allows for on its own. Adding a single repeater doubles the range of FireWire from 14.75' (4.5 m) to 29.5' (9 m). You can daisy chain repeaters to achieve lengths of up to 236' (72 m)
Hot Swappable
FireWire-400 devices are often hot swappable. This hub fully supports that capability, allowing you to connect and disconnect devices without powering down your computer.
FireWire-400 Speed
The FireWire-400 bus allows for data transfer speeds of up to 50 MB/sec, making this an ideal solution to connect multiple high-performance storage devices to your computer.

    4-Port FireWire-400 Repeater and Hub is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb unit. This is high quality all the way. Molex connectors, steel chassis, made in Israel and not China. Very well thought out, in that it comes with mounting brackets to screw it down to something. You will need to do this, of course, as boxes of this nature will not sit level (or at all) once the cables are plugged in. I simply made a pair of skids from 1x2 pine that extend 2 inches past the ports.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Firewire Hub But Minor Glitch The Kramer VS-4FW firewire hub is excellent except that it causes problems when used with an Intel-based iMac. When putting the iMac into Sleep mode, the Kramer hub actually causes the iMac to shutdown. Happens every time. Other than that, the Kramer hub is very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doea what it says - with no problems I needed to expand my computers two Firewire 400 ports. The Kramer 4-port firewire-400 repeater was perfect for connecting an Epson PhotoPerfection scanner and two 2-TB LaCie Quadra HDs. Only issue is my LaCie HDs will now not automatically power down when I shut down my computer. This is due to the power transformer the Kramer repeater requires. I have to manually turnoff the HDs, as their AUTO shutdown no longer works. I guess its a small trade-off for the extra firewire ports.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Excellent product. Has Power On light that is very bright. Has activity light when the unit is busy. Only improvement would be activity lights on each FireWire hookup station.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution for a big problem!!! Working in a technology-driven church I needed multiple firewire connections running to a single laptop. Fortunately this hub has worked seamlessly. I haven't had any latency issues and I am streaming live video as well as multi-track audio. It has been a life saver.
