My System Specs

Default Firewire 400 -> Firewire 800: Comments?

So Apple has hosed FW400 ports on my new Mac Tower and given me more FW800 Ports than I know what to do with. So I was using a FW cable like this



But the large FW400 6 pin head won't fit in this new machine. I have been looking at this adapter

Moshi 800 to 400 FireWire Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

Anyone have any experience with this, particularly on a Mac? I have read that hardware can sometimes be particular about FW cables which is why this "official" Apple adapter seems like a good way to go. Just looking for some feedback in case anyone has some good/bad experience in this area.

Thanks.
