              I wanted my g-raids in a closet vs my desktop because they're loud. This cable is really amazing when you consider what's happening. Electrical->Laser-> Electrical at full Thunderbolt 2 speed. You should watch the videos on how durable it is! I fished mine through the walls with no issues and couldn't be happier. 2 G-Raids and a thunderbolt SSD for booting Windows 8.1 on my MacPro 6-core trashcan, all daisy-chained.

              One thing to note, the ends get pretty hot with use, I would guess in the 110-130F range, but that's a guess.

                This is my 2nd cable. The first one worked for a few hours then failed. B&H promptly replaced it so I can't comment on Corning's customer service. So far this new cable has been working flawlessly for about a week. The cable is nice and light, as optical cables tend to be and appears to be well made. I have not noticed any change in performance since switching from a standard TB cable (that came with my G-Raid) as expected. The only downside of this cable is the price, which seems high for an optical cable, even with the conversion hardware built in. This is especially annoying in the case of longer cables. Surely the cable is the cheapest part, so logically the longer cables wouldn't be so much more than this shorter version.

                    I purchased this Corning Thunderbolt cable to separate the new Mac Pro and the Promise R8 Hard Drive array 32 feet apart. The high speed cable offers blazing speed on a beautiful, trim package!!
