    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a Charm! I'm soooooo happy I bought this. I have some older Firewire 400 drives that I still wanted to use with my MacBook Pro which only has a plug for Firewire 800. I used to have an adpater but couldn't find it so I bought this at a good price. This one worked great. It even worked to connect the connect the drive to another Voyager external drive holder that has both Firewire 400 and 800 plugs so I was able to piggyback and see several drives at once. I was using this to edit video on Final Cut Pro and this adapter worked fast enough for that to happen. I would definitely buy this again or maybe a 2nd one if I lose the first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, Fast Service! B&H covers every aspect of your computer, camera, electronics as well as accessories for music instruments. Last year I purchased a road case for a keyboard I use when I travel and perform. I called ahead of time and it was there waiting for me. Most recently I needed a FireWire adapter in order to connect an older storage drive to my new Mac Mini. They have a great staff on the floor, and within just a few short minutes I had one of their tech guys quickly looking up the adapter I needed, and then he walked me over to where the FireWire Adapter was located. Super friendly staff. I was in and out of there in 15 minutes! You will NOT get that kind of service anywhere else!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact; works as advertized 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working flawlessly! I connected the Firewire 800-400 Adapter by Newer Technology between my new iMac Computer, which has a Firewire 800 port, and my old backup device, which only has a Firewire 400 port. The adapter fired up my backup device immediately, and my backup device started backing up the data from my computer flawlessly! This is a great product! Also, I was pleasantly surprised to receive the package 4 days ahead of schedule on February 16, 2012 instead of February 20, 2012 (the promised date). Thank you for your excellent service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful Product Recently I replaced my vintage Mac Power G5 computer with a Ma ini 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redundancy Reducer Purchased this along with a new imac so I could continue using my trusty Sandisk Firewire 400 card reader (now discontinued) on the newer Firewire 800 port. Works flawlessly! It stays out of the way on the back of the computer and is not an eyesore in use. Now if anyone out there could convince Canon to update the OSX drivers for their older scanners, I would happily purchase another to continue using that as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works. 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Literally Plug and Play 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.
