5 out of 5 eggsIdeal companion for laptop firewire

Pros: Cable lengths are not too short nor too long.
Can provide bus power for intended product (Aegis FireWire drive 6pin) and also for all firewire 6pin devices when connected to a laptop's 4pin firewire port.
Power adapter takes input 100-240Vac 50-60Hz (compatible with both US and Japan mains power)

Cons: Power adapter has transformer built into plug / can block other outlets. I suggest keeping an extension cord in your kit with this product.

Other Thoughts: Is the only device at this price which adds power to a 4pin firewire port.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good

Pros: this is a very good adapter. the flexibility to move the adapter out of the way from the plug vs having the big 4-pin into 6-pin connector brick, is a great feature.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: difference between 4-pin firewire and 6-pin firewire is that the 4-pin does not have the 2 other pins that supply 12VDC to the hardware. I recommend this mainly used for laptops with the smaller 4-pin firewire plug that you want to plug the larger 6-pin into it.
