    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.

      Got this with my Apollo Twin Duo, it works great, seems sturdy, but it is very very short. 1.6' is too short in my opnion.

        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.

                  It does what it's supposed to do, connecting point A to point B.
                  I wish they'd incorporate a locking feature, but whatever.

                  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.

                      Works as expected. But beware, the 1.6' cable is shorter than you are thinking it is! Make sure this is really what you want. - 1 star because of high price.

                                          Works perfectly. B&H processed my order the same day and it arrived when they said it would. You can't ask for anything better than that!
