    Thunderbolt Optical Cable (18') is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after a week I bought the cable to work with my ARC-5028T2 thunderbolt 2 RAID system. After about a week I can no longer detect the RAID drive through the cable. Switching back to a regular cable and all works fine. I'm not sure what the issue is, but I installed all the relevant Areca drivers on my Mac, and it did work for a week. But then gave up. I need about 10' in length, and I think I can do that now with a regular cable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I purchased two of these cables and both failed after about a year. I treated them gently and when they were installed they did not move. They worked fine for about a year then they both failed. The funny thing is that I also purchased a 33' version of the same cable and it is working fine. Weird and frustrating.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works with Areca 8050T2 I know there has been some speculation about whether or not this optical cable works with Areca 8050T2, I am saying it works just fine with my external RAID. In fact, I think it has increased my transfer speed by about 5% or so. I really like the construction of the cable, extremely thin and flexible, which is great for tight spaces. You pay a lot for this kind of cable, but it really is one of the best cables I ever bought. Only reason I subtract 1 star is due to high price for the length (18').

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cable Works perfectly. Runs hot on connector at computer. My 1st one lasted about 23 months (24/7) which is not bad for my needs. Corning does NOT repair these. When it dies, out of warranty, you simply have to get a new one. No problem really.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but works Had these cables for over 3 years - so far so good. Just bought another. Great to be able to move thunderbolt devices far from computer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Thunderbolt Cable! This is the best thunderbolt cable that I could find. It's fast! And allows me to put my loud RAID system in another room. Love it!
