So far this cable is flawless. It successfully connected a Firewire 800 Disk dock to a MacPro. The dock remains connected thanks to this cable. The cable itself is flexible so it can twist and bend as it goes in, around and out between the two connections it is intended to make. The only possible improvement would be if this cable was available in a snakeskin pattern instead of basic black.
These 6ft 9 pin firewire cables are just what I needed. They work well and seem to be well constructed.
The price is better than what I can find locally. I like how I can read the descriptions of the items available on Monoprice and figure out my needs. When I go to the store usually none is around to ask questions.
PROS: The price is more than reasonable. The cables work.
