Use With FireWire 800 or FireWire 400 Devices! Use With NitroAV 4-Port FireWire 800/1394b + 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub/Repeater!
AC Adapter Included! Robust Metal Chassis!
Surpasses any on the market in quality and performance, 100% Guaranteed!! This hub is the best of the best! The NitroAV Professional Grade 8-port 1394b (FireWire 800) hub/repeater, featuring Texas Instruments chips allows you to easily attach 7 devices, simultaneously, at up to 800 Megabits per Second(Mbps), for blazing fast transfer rates, and elimination of daisy chaining, plugging and unplugging devices. Simply attach a FireWire cable from your computer to the hub, and attach your devices. This FireWire 800 hub and repeater will conveniently draw power directly from a powered 1394 port, automatically, while also powering bus power capable devices that do not have their own power source. Its DC power input jack can also be used with the always included, 110/220V AC power adapter, when the 1394/FireWire connection does not provide DC power. Even if the FireWire bus is already powered, the DC power input jack of the hub/repeater can also be used simultaneously, to supplement power draw from devices. The FireWire bus voltage will adapt automatically when needed. But it's not just used in the studio, or on the desk or rack- It is also designed for use in custom implementations and has screw hole mounts in its robust metal chassis. This design also provides additional power source means, with a 4-pin 5v/12v connector.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Like several other customers note, this device worked fine for several weeks then just stopped working. The symptom is that all the drives or devices online are no longer seen by the mac, and the indicator lights flicker or "fibrillate" rather than remain on steady. It makes no difference whether you plug the devices in individually or all on one long daisy chain; it makes no difference if the auxilliary power is applied or if the device is left to just be bus-powered.
Bottom line is that this thing is a doorstop. Very unhappy. Although I have not damaged any equipment (as in the case of some other reviewers), I will consign this to electronic recycling and never buy anything else from this company.
This product has serious design flaws that cause it to fail prematurely and for many customers. Good luck but I cannot recommend you spend money on this device. Try Belkin or another supplier.
Worked for 6 months. Simply crapped out. LOUSY PRODUCT - NONEXISTENT TECH SUPPORT.
Go ahead and dial 888-307-3340 for support and listen to convoluted options leading you to other nonsensical options, ultimately winding up with being hung up on, by a machine.
PHASE ONE Camera owners beware: This beast shorted out my camera back's Firewire connection. As a result, my Phase One will not connect to my computer and will cost $2400 to repair the camera. You've been warned.
My NitroAV lasted a little over a year then died. Although the company has a website and says it has support I've waited two weeks with no reply to 3 messages I sent them. I've even called their telephone number which no one answers and there is no answering machine. Just so you know the company is actually VERGE LABS INC Company Information. 3910 S Interstate 35 #245. Austin, TX, 78704 United States (512) 707-0001. Would be nice if they would put that on their website so you don't have to spend an hour doing google searches to find out where they are hiding. Highly recommend you do not purchase this product you will be totally busted if you have any problems.
