  • Overview

    Thunderbolt technology supports fast data transfers with two independent channels of 10 Gbps each. And Thunderbolt 2 technology can bond the two channels for a super-fast 20 Gbps. 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.

This was rectified by reseating the cable but was frustrating, I had a fairly stable period of about a month until finally it just stopped working completely. At the end of the day it's just a lead but it is still annoying. I'll have to get it replaced and see if the second one fairs any better.

      Works OK, yet no 3 metre version?

      Had several Thunderbolt cables. The Apple ones all work as expected, however the gauge is a bit thicker than other manufacturers for some reason, so a star off Had several Thunderbolt cables. The Apple ones all work as expected, however the gauge is a bit thicker than other manufacturers for some reason, so a star off for that. (e.g. I especially like the StarTech cables, specifically as they do a 3 metre one, but also as they're all a little bit thinner than the Apple ones, so can be wound-up really easily, and being black don't show the dirt and scuff marks.) Also, Apple for some reason do not offer a 3 metre version? Ever since the release of their first Thunderbolt device 2 years ago they have weirdly never bothered to release one, which means I'm often forced into buying a third-party one (as mentioned above) in order to put the peripheral device at the desired distance away from the host computer. And a star knocked-off for the price. Yes, I know they have controllers in them, but mass consumption should have lowered them further by now, I feel. Lol, just awaiting these longer optical-only Thunderbolt cables, many would like to use (provided cost comes down a lot more!), as our peripherals are self powered so can already use them. Well, one can dream! ;-)

      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.
