Recommendations for a "FireWire (= IEEE 1394) male to USB female" adapter?

I have two small FireWire connectors built into my laptop, which I rarely use.

Since the machine has two USB ports only, it would be nice to have a "FireWire male to USB female adapter".

There are a few of those on the market. I guess the ones that come as a cable are preferable (otherwise you might break the conector).

Anyone of you ever tested any of those on a Linux-based system?

Greetings, and a nice weekend to all of you, Joe
