    Just as Advertised

    The cord came just as advertised with no issues whatsoever. Packaging was compact and very much in line with all other Apple products.

    Small and compact as well!

    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.

                          Thunderbolt is definitely worth the money when dealing with terabytes of image files. Only downside is its expensive with no affordable off-brand options.

                            There's nothing special about this particular product. If you are buying it then you already know the speed advantage that thunderbolt offers. This cord does blend in well with your apple products and nicely matches the clean style of your Mac

                                This combined with the Black Magic Intensity Extreme works amazing for direct capture to a Mac Laptop using Gamebreaker. Both of our Lacrosse teams use this setup and are very pleased.

                                            A well built Thunderbolt cable. A needed replacement of the faulty cable sold with the Buffalo drive.

                                                These cables work really nice...but they are pretty expensive!

                                                  The cable works as it should but is VERY expensive due I think to Intel/Allple licensing prices as are all things Thunderbolt
