      Unreliable

      I am using this to connect my MBA to a thunderbolt dock. it is not moved around. it goes in gentle sweeps, it is under no physical or thermal stress. and eve I am using this to connect my MBA to a thunderbolt dock. it is not moved around. it goes in gentle sweeps, it is under no physical or thermal stress. and every month or so the MBA locks up requiring a PRAM reset and cable switching - what else would I like reliability from a premium priced cable!

      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.

      Made from poor materials

      The rubber on these cables will over time with normal use, degrade, twist and break. They have used poor quality rubber to shield the cables.

I wouldn't recommend this product to anybody. It's such incredibly poor quality for the amount of money they charge.

      Keep having to upgrade cables and get behind again.

      Yet again I have bought another cable to connect to external devices.

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 .
