5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it should

Pros: It is well made and the connectors fit snugly. I used it to transfer video from an older Sony DCR-HC52 camcorder, and it worked without a hitch.

Cons: At a little over 1/2 inch wide, the boots on this cable are a bit wider than on other 4-pin Firewire cables I have used. If you have closely spaced connectors on your device things could be tight. I had to squeeze to connect both this cable and the power cable on my camcorder. But if worse comes to worse you could shave off some of the boot.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected.

Pros: Gets the bits from point A to point B.

Didn't cost over $25 from a BigBox electronics store.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Fit was a little tight at first, BE GENTLE, and you'll be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for Sony video cam to laptop

Pros: - Cheap. Roly moly this would have been $40 6 years ago.
- Works fine

Cons: - very snug fit on the camera, but very carefully got it in there. Just be gentle on your hardware.

Other Thoughts: I used this to tranfer video from my camcorder (uses tapes, records digitally, I forget the format name) to my laptop. The cable that came witht he camera has a "normal" sized firewire connection that works on my PC but the laptop has a teeny connection just like the camera. Works fine dumping video to the laptop, I am able to control the camera via the laptop software just like I was using the regular cable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cable

Pros: Transfers data over the IEEE 1394 interface just fine! The 4-pin to 4-pin connection is not that common, so you can't just pick these up at any ol' retail outlet around town like you can with a 4-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable. Does what it should at a great price.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Not a lot of people have a need for this cable since even most laptops have a "standard" 6-pin Firewire female port. My wife's PC, however, is on a "compact" chassis and only has the 4-pin port, the same as is found on most miniDV camcorders. Hence, this dual-ended cable is indispensable.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Price

Pros: Cheap, Works

Cons: I do Agree it is a little hard to plug in.

Other Thoughts: Don't just jam it in be gentle and i think it will work fine for you.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for purchasing our products. The cable is connected firmly to avoid that the cable falls off the Firewire port. If you are having problem with the cable that does not fit correctly, please contact us at support-us@syba.com for replacement or if you have any question.

Regards,
Syba Customer Service 903

2 out of 5 eggsMissing a Pin

Pros: It is cheap

Cons: Missing a pin on one end, it doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: Cheaper and quicker to buy another than to ship it back and wait. No big deal on a part this cheap.
