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 a Thunderbolt-equipped system to a Thunderbolt device. Connect a Thunderbolt-equipped Mac in target disk mode to another Mac for fast data access or system migration, or network two Thunderbolt-equipped computers.

      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.

The cable does feel a little fragile, but just like any high end HDMI cable, you shouldn't be moving these cables allot to prevent the cable snapping internally. The Cable comes nicely packaged and includes a small information packet. The only negative thing i could say about the product is the issue of the price, i would recommend a third party cable if you are low on money. Though the cable, expensive or not, does it's job and is quality made.

      Keep having to upgrade cables and get behind again.

This gets really expensive when you go from USB to Firewire to Firewire 800 and now to Thunderbolt just in time to see USB C is coming. The cable does what it is supposed to but frustrated by constant spec changes and trying to keep up .

      No way to connect miniDP monitor

      So, apparently, thunderbolt port is backwards compatible with miniDP. But the cable - is not. To connect, for example, MacBook Air Early 2015 and Dell U So, apparently, thunderbolt port is backwards compatible with miniDP. But the cable - is not. To connect, for example, MacBook Air Early 2015 and Dell U2913WM you need DP/miniDP cable, not thunderbolt cable. Excellent quality as usual, and I guess transfer speed is nice (can't check).
