    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"

            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 got this cable to migrate data to a new laptop using target disk mode. The length was great and will be used to connect with other thunderbolt devices.

                            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.

                                        Comments about Apple Thunderbolt Cable (6.6'):

                                        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.

                                        This is an Apple made Thunderbolt cable; expect everything to be right. The cable seems to be flexible but durable; and it's working well for me.

                                          Great cable for connecting my display to my MBP. My other cable was too short, but this one is great. A bit expensive for a cable.

                                                Just purchased a new 27" iMac configured for doing photo and video work and with a Drobo D external hard drive array. The 6'6" length of the Thunderbolt Cable is perfect for getting the drive off my desk and into a drawer. Thunderbolt connection makes the connection run everything optimally.

                                                      Yes, I'm actually reviewing an OEM cable manufactured by Apple for Apple.

                                                      Its my first ever OEM Thunderbolt cable. (A future thing of the past in 5 years from now.)

                                                      The question is, how will it compare to the cheap ones sold elsewhere for pennies on the dollar made overseas? That's the real test.

                                                      But yes, this cable works and is Thunderbolt fast! Shocker! LOL

                                                          Works perfect. Still pretty pricey though for a technology thats been around for nearly 4 years.
