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.

Thunderbolt is very pricey, but has great performance. This cable was very short and very expensive. Get the Long cable!!!!

Comments about 1.6' (0.5 m) Thunderbolt Cable (Black):

Cable works great. no issues with speed using the Belkin T-bolt adapter. It's crazy short. Like the adapter is sitting right behind my Mac Pro and that's even kind of a stretch.

        This cable replaced a cable I purchased on Monoprice that did not work. Cost for thunderbolt cables is insanely high, but Apple's are actually reasonably priced.

                                It is what it is. It's a Thunderbolt Cable, which is a hardware interface that combines PCI Express and DisplayPort into one signal.

                                        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!
