Firewire cable

  Dellman 12:00 06 Mar 2006

I am looking to buy a 4 PIN to 4 PIN firewire cable to connect DV camcorder to laptop for video editing purposes. I see that the costs vary greatly.
Do they need to be gold plated?
I've seen some in PC World for between £14.99 and £24.99. On e-bay, there are some as cheap as £1.99 plus postage.

What should I be looking for when buying these?

Do I really need to spend £25??

What is the 800 Standard? What do I need 400 or 800?
