      I bought this cable to go with a Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock. As usual the quality of Apple's cables don't disappoint. They have a solid construction and are usual pretty durable which is great when you are moving stuff around and have to connect, and disconnect, cables regularly.Of the 2 sizes Apple provides, this is the shorter, measuring about a foot and a half. The longer one measures in at about 6.5 feet. The only real complaint I have is not with this cable itself, but more with Apple for not offering an in-between size. Somewhere in the 3 foot range would be nice, because for my uses this cable seems just a little bit shorter than I would like.Otherwise a solid purchase if you need a short Thunderbolt cable!

      The title says it all. 1.6 feet is too short. All of the things I want to use thunderbolt for are kind of big. My 27" iMac and a second display are wide. My RAID enclosure is tall, and the ports are at the top. My hub that lets me use USB 3.0 things, I want to be able to pull forward so I can see the back when I'm plugging or unplugging other things. It reaches, just barely, but my desktop looks jimmy-rigged, not tidy.

              It is what it is. It's a Thunderbolt Cable, which is a hardware interface that combines PCI Express and DisplayPort into one signal.

                      Comments about Apple Thunderbolt Cable - 1.6':

                      The cable is too short to comfortably use. I used it to transfer my programs and files between Macs. It was awkward to use because of where the cables hook up. It would limit its use with a hard drive for the same reason.

                                The only reason it gets 4 stars is the price point and the fact that the cable is stiff. Otherwise, it's 5 stars... quality construction that you would expect from Apple, and dependable. Just a heads up on the cable length... it measures from end of connector to end of connector... not just the wire length.

                                          Love the speed of thunderbolt! Being able to work off drives at this speed is great for motion graphics and video work.
