    Hi,

    I was looking for a short, left-angled firewire 800 cable and this is one of the few places that sell it. I've never heard of this site and want to make sure they are legit because they don't accept paypal and I don't want to hand out my credit card to unknown site.

    Please let me know if you've used them or if there are other sites that sell short, right/left angled firewire 800 cables.

    Thanks.

    If there is no way to pay with paypal I don't trust the site.

    They have largely positive reviews on resellerratings.

    And a WHOIS of the website suggests the same.

    I saw their reselleratings profile and saw 6 reviews. 5 were posted at regularly spaced intervals and also from one shot reviewers on reselleratings.

    Also found out http://www.angledcables.com/ which has the same contact phone # and address as listen on usbfirewire.com. angledcables permits paypal payments.

    www.usbfirewire.com is also a ebay seller and permits paypal. very strange. might pass on this company.

    Then just pay using eBay + PayPal. Double protection.
