Do some MiniDisplay to DVI Adapters Obstruct the FW800 Port on 2011 MBP's?

    I have a 2011 17" MBP.

    I need to get a MiniDisplay(Thunderbolt) to DVI adapter.
    (Preferably one with a 6' cord.)

    I see these listed from <$5 to $30 for Apple's version.

    I have read that some of these will obstruct access to the FW800 port.
    This is a deal breaker.

    Can anyone with a 2011 MBP, tell me they have a MiniDisplay to DVI adapter that does not obstruct the FW800 port, and who the manufacturer is?

    I bought these two items:

    Moshi MiniDisplay Port to HDMI Adapter with Audio
    6Ft Mini DisplayPort to DVI Male Adapter Cable

    Neither one blocks the fw800 port in the slightest way.

    Case closed
