    HDV camera - FW to Thunderbolt

    Purchased the adapter to support moving data from a Canon HDV-20 video camera to my Macbook Pro. I run a FW 400 to FW 800 cable to this adapter. Works as designed and intended.

    Works Perfectly

    I'm using this adapter to connect a 4 drive array to my 2014 Mini. Works exactly like it should. Have been using 24/7 for 2 weeks without issue.

    Works great for me

    I have two older LaCie FW external HD's. Bought new 21.5 Retina display iMac running Sierra. This adapter works perfectly and the performance is even faster than straight FW connection to the old iMac.

    I wonder if some folks are trying to use this adapter for something it was not designed to do.

    Firewire 800 to Thunderbolt Adapter

    I am using it to connect a NewerTech GMax Mini to my new Mac Mini 3.0Ghz//16/2T Fusion. Works very well.

    iMac 5k to Legacy FW 800

    Recently upgraded to a late 2015 5k 27" iMac from an early 2009 iMac. I have 3 FW 800 drives and they all are detected and work fine with this adapter. My drives are Drobo Gen 2 (powered), Western Digital My Book Studio (powered) and a Western Digital My Passport Studio (in chain).

    I was concerned given all the mixed reviews so I hope this may help others with a similar configuration.

    Works terrific! Eliminates needing the Ethernet port on your MacBook!

    Although having a port on your machine is more ideal, this nifty gadget does exactly as it's meant for. It's very portable with my other adapters and such that I take on the go. I feel an ethernet plug is one of those essential ports that should be part of the machine, but because they don't build them into the machines anymore, this is the next best thing. I find that this works fantastic to use for an ethernet connection using my Thunderbolt port of my MB Pro. I currently have a MacBook Pro Late 2013 Retina model. It has never failed me yet. Not sure about the other reviewer problems mentioned, but my use has been minimal, and has been for general use of modem/router & printer setups... or basically when direct connection is required for an initial setup and/or bluetooth setup, etc. I can connect to my device via ethernet just fine without getting errors or other problems. It was a great investment for me!

    Great - Works for me...

    I bought this because I now have a new late 2015 27" iMac and needed a way of connecting a Focusrite Safire Pro 26. The Focurite website states that this adapter works fine and I just connected it up then and its working perfectly. Presently I've got it powering the Safire Pro 26 but will probably end up running the unit off it's AC adapter for things like phantom power. But This little adapter works perfectly.

    So a big thumbs up from me.

    Worked for me

    First off, I'd like to give a shout out to my old 2004 MacBook Pro - that thing survived a few nasty spills, two owners, and the only things I had to replace on it was the battery and one of the fans. In 2013 it finally gave up the ghost, and I wasn't too interested in repairing it right away since it was no longer possible to update its software (from Apple at least). I fired it up under "target disk mode", and used this adapter to transfer its HD contents between it and my (then) new 2013 MacBook Pro, and the process went smoothly. I can't speak for the other reviews, but for this application it worked well.
