I used this adapter to troubleshoot a firewire audio interface. I used it to prevent a power draw of a audio interface on a computer allowing me to use an external power source on the interface. I did not want to have two sources of power going into the one unit. The computer's firewire interface has a maximum of 7 watts and the external has 12 watts. What I discovered was that a studio microphone was faulty but I plan to use the adapter when the interface is connected to a laptop to prevent power strain on the computer.
Monoprice website allowed me to find the product I needed with its helpful layout, descriptions and images. Prices are excellent and for this adapter, cost was significantly lower than anywhere else.
It did take a little while to ship. (To Ottawa, ON CANADA) I don't remember how long it actually took, but I remember being pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It was such a tiny order (and price) that I started thinking maybe I wasn't going to receive it at all. When I finally did, I was very happy.
Thank you Monoprice, for offering such a valuable service! :)
PROS: Price is unbeatable. Product was exactly as described and works perfectly.
Does what it needs to do and all for a cheap price. I already had the mini-to-mini cable from an older PC but the new PCs have the full size. Saved me from having to buy yet another cable. I am pleased
