Is FireWire 800 daisy linkable?

Asked by meemorize (324points) January 9th, 2009 from iPhone

Is it possible to link a series of FireWire 800 external harddrives together the way daisy links in FireWire 400 works?
PC to HD1, HD1 to HD2, HD2 to HD3…

Are there performance drops doing this?

Never gets old.. ;)
Thanks for the summary though. If I wasn’t on this touch device I wouldn’t have been so lazy :)

I’m just jealous because my FW port on my Macbook is bust. Going into the Apple store tomorrow.
