This here is a good Firewire cable. I say that because I use it to run from one end of my studio to the other, and even at 5 metres that's a stretch. And then I have a habit of pulling my MacBook onto the sofa and actually using it on my lap, just like an olde-worlde laptop. This causes the cable to tug plaintively at my DAC unit, which faces the opposite direction, creating a tight U-bend. Suffice to say, after the best part of two years, the cable's still working fine. So this is one of yr robust Firewire cables, not a cheapo, wear-out-&-replace kind. I guess if your 5 metre connector is somewhere semi-permanent, where it won't be plugged, unplugged, tugged or lugged, then yeah you could probably pick up a cheaper cable. Me, I'm glad I spent the extra.
