    What can I say? The Thunderbolt cable works as advertised. I suppose I could have bought a third-party cable instead of the Apple one, but at this pint in time (November 2012) there don't appear to be any that are less expensive and work properly. I have read reports of other Thunderbolt cables heating up at the ends (where the chips are), but this hasn't been a problem with the Apple one. Plus the white colour matches the white MagSafe cable next to it, so there you go! :-)

    Bought the Thunderbolt cable along with a WD 4TB RAID external hard drive for a Mac. After repeated unsuccessful attempts to format drive as a mirrored raid setup, three calls to Western Digital, a trip to UPS to return the WD drive and receipt of a replacement unit from WD (I had the same problems with the replacement unit), I decided to try a second Thunderbolt Cable I happened to have. What do you know, once I replaced the cable, all of the problems disappeared.

    I was quite disappointed with the lack of quality control on what should be a mindless piece of equipment. It caused weeks of headaches as I attempted to isolate the problem spot. Once I replaced the defective cable with a new one, I have had no further problems. That being said, I haven't noticed a substantial speed differential using the Thunderbolt.

    The equipment manufacturers continue to make life more complicated while marketing their new gear as "simple and the answer to all of our problems"

            The only issue I have with Thunderbolt is the cost of the cables: Buying from B&H helps. These Apple cables are primo quality.

                      I returned this. I had it connected to a storage array and whenever I repositioned my laptop, it would disconnect and I'd have to start my project over again. I don't know if this is a thunderbolt problem or if I just had a faulty cable but this wasn't working for me.

                            What can you say about a cable - it does the job. I researched why these cables are so expensive, and there is a reason - there is circuitry in the cable to achieve the bandwidth of thunderbolt. With my LG 34UM95 this one cable carries video, audio, and all my usb devices.

                                    I know there are cheaper versions out there but having tried them it was just a waste of money - they don't last. This goes for many cables and accessories for all Apple products.

                                                    I'm using this for my iMac and WD external Hard Drive. Never failed and never had any issues.

                                                    Pricey, of course, but comes with the peace of mind of a quality product by apple. I use it to connect a thunderbolt dock which runs all of my peripherals.

                                                                While very pricy, Apple's Thunderbolt cables perform exactly as advertised. They allow me to move large volumes of data and stream UHD video without the need for a web of cables. For that, I could not be more grateful.
