I question myself using a longer wire for high speed data transfer, but this cable has zero timing issues with my older and my new M1 Mac.

Cables are needed, not exciting. So when they work for my computer they work for me! ; )

I’m sure the wire is fine but regardless of apple assuring me before hand that I could make an external monitor from my 2011 iMac to my 2020 iMac with a thunderbolt connection and adapter you can not. Wasted my money and time on this.

While it's the longest thunderbolt 2 you can buy from Apple... it also falls short of expectations. We are glad that USB-C and Thunderbolt 3(/4) have replaces this design.

Replaced defective Apple Thunderbolt Display Cable

The permanently attached Apple Thunderbolt Display Cable was going bad at the connector end where it connects to my Mac. The display would intermittently go black, a little jiggle would temporarily fix it, but not forever. Unfortunately, the replacement cables are not available, however on the back of the display there is an extra Thunderbolt 2 port that can function as a display audio video source. Problem solved.

Hard to beat the Apple cable

There is more competitive for Thunderbolt 3 cables but the Apple TB 2.0 cable is the best price for ~2m and the quality of the cable is great. Admittedly I’m not plugging and unplugging my thunderbolt devices like I am USB but still, it is well built.

It worked.
