This is a great cable and does exactly what I was looking for. I use this to connect my Macbook Pro (FireWire 800) to my old Sony DCR-TRV22E mini dv camcorder (FireWire / i.Link), and can upload and control the camera from the MacBook without any problems at all.
The cable feels solid and well made, the connectors fit securely at both ends. Highly recommended.

Having purchased a firewire cable from a local shop, I found that the connector was too big for my Macbook. Purchased this cable after reading reviews saying that it would fit, and it does, downloaded old DV Tapes into Final Cut Pro X without any problems.

Wanted to transfer mimidv from my old firewire camera to my macbook pro via a thunderbolt adaptor and this is just what I needed.
Plug and play, I was amazed it worked and was so easy.
Only thing I don't like is that the lead was short and curved and I didn't like to straighten it out as I didn't know if I would damage the cable by doing that.
Really really pleased though, great quality lead.

The quality is good, and the plugs on each and make it possible to attach the cable to the same shaped sockets. In this case it's FireWire 800 to iLink - or mini-FireWire as found on many DV cameras. It works fine. Bit short, to be honest, but that's really my fault.
