Apple Thunderbolt Cable (2.0 m) - White

  • Overview

    Thunderbolt technology supports fast data transfers with two independent channels of 10Gb/s each. And Thunderbolt 2 technology can bond the two channels for a superfast 20Gb/s. Use this cable to connect Thunderbolt-enabled devices to the Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 port on your Mac.

    The Apple Thunderbolt Cable lets you connect two Thunderbolt-equipped Mac computers in target disk mode, network two Mac computers with OS X Mavericks, or use your iMac as a display for a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air.

      Thunderbolt cable from Apple

      Quality product. It is just a cable so there isn't much more one can say. I bought it at the original price of $49.99 and now see that the price has dropped to Quality product. It is just a cable so there isn't much more one can say. I bought it at the original price of $49.99 and now see that the price has dropped to a somewhat more reasonable level. From a purely functional viewpoint, it would get 5 stars. Throw in the price and one star gets taken away. If Apple is serious about pushing Thunderbolt sales, these cables should be sold at near cost (including shipping) until the price becomes reasonable, IMHO.

      one good, one dead

Thought the drive was dea Bought two of these at the original price of $50. Opened one and used it to connect a thunderbolt Lacie 2Big drive. Didn't turn on. Thought the drive was dead, got another drive. Then that was dead. So I swapped cables and voila the new drive worked. So the problem was that one of my 2 cables was dead on arrival (DOA). On insertion, it felt notably more "tough" to insert than the second (good) cable. Of course I didn't know how a thunderbolt cable should feel on insertion since the DOA one was the first I'd ever used.

Nothing changed in how the cable was used, it simply stopped transmitting picture and sound to the TV. For $40, I certainly expected better.

      Connect two iMacs ...dual screen/target disc mode

      Place two 21.5 " iMacs side by side...screens touching. The Thunderbolt ports are 53cm apart...so, no chance of using the neater, 50cm option.Sneaky huh. The Place two 21.5 " iMacs side by side...screens touching. The Thunderbolt ports are 53cm apart...so, no chance of using the neater, 50cm option.Sneaky huh. The 2 mtr works fine i guess. I use the cable to configure the old iMac as mainly a second monitor to expand my desktop or at keystroke access the HD as extra storage. Pity the USB ports on the second imac only supply power for charging, would be nice to have them fully functional.
