Does not work with Promise 32 R8 Raid Drive

By James
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-07

This cable was a recommended accessory on the Promise 32 R8 product page on B&H. It did not work at all. The Mac couldn't see any devices connected. Turns out Promise does have other recommended brands for 6.5' long Thunderbolt 3 cables, one of them being Belkin. I'm exchanging it.

Great product

Better than Belkin

We have several of these cables, all work great with our RAIDs. I prefer these over the Belkin cables because they seem to have a slightly more solid physical connection.

So far so good

I have had trouble with tiger powered TB3 candles before. I have used this one for two weeks and so far so good.

I rely on B&H for high quality equipment, right down to the cables, cords and connectors needs for nearly all electronic items. Great service, fast, and high quality.

I have to keep buying these because there is something in them that makes my cats chew them? I keep coming back because its the best TB3 at 6' for the money.

Perfect for my needs and super long cable!

Love the length! Works just as well as my previous super short TB3 cable. Glad I got this.

Does this cable work with the LG Monitor LG 38UC99-W?
Asked by: Kyle
We're afraid not. This cable is not compatible with that monitor. This is an active Thunderbolt 3 cable so when connected to a non-Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port it will only work at USB 2.0 speeds - which wouldn't support the bandwidth required for video. That specific LG monitor is USB-C, not Thunderbolt 3, so this active cable wouldn't be compatible. instead you need a USB-C cable at 3.0 or 3.1 speeds. https://bhpho.to/30VsxfP

Will this cable work with the ASUS ProArt PA329C 32" 16:9 4K HDR IPS Display?
Asked by: Hemen
I can't answer with respect to your specific monitor, but FYI... I bought this cable b/c it said it supports 4K video. I cannot get video through it on my LG 38UC99-W (ultra-wide 4K). So far, I've tried a few 3d party cables that purport to support 4K or 5K video w/ no luck (I've tried via daisy chain and direct from my MacBook Pro to the monitor). They all work fine for connecting drives, but thus far only the short cable that came w/ my monitor works for display.
