    Doesn't even power a monitor. Worthless

    Expensive cable, supposed to be latest/greatest and doesn't even power a monitor. Thanks for wasting my time.

    Does not work for external display

    I ignored the previous reviews and bought it anyway. Lessons learned because this does not work when connected to an external monitor.

    Doesn't work with an external monitor!

    I purchased the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Cable (2 m), and I connected my 2016 MacBook Pro (touch bar) to an external monitor (Acer H277HU -kmipuz). It does not work, and I will return the cable for a full refund. My monitor is a new one with a 3.1 USB port on back of monitor. In fact, the monitor doesn't even recognized that the cable is connected to the Mac Book Pro. This is not a good cable! I have not tried the 0.5 M. cable.

    Doesn't work for external display

    As the previous reviewer mention, the .5m cable works fine but the larger one does not transfer at the same speed and won't work for my external displays. Unusable for me :/.

    This does not work at thunderbolt 3 speeds at all.

    I bought a .5m cable and this 2m cable. The .5m Belkin cable is transferring files at over 200MBps and the 2m cable will not transfer or test above 40MBps. It is only performing at USB 2 speeds with the same computer and external solid state drive that work great with the shorter cable.
    I would not buy this cable if you need to do anything but charge a device or transfer small files.

    Only half complete PASSIVE cable.

    This refers to the 2m Belkin Thunderbolt 3 cable, with the following numbers: HKK22ZM/A | F2CD083ds2M-BLK | 8830ds23845 Rev. A00 | barcode: 7 45883 72659 2.

    Please be aware that this is a *PASSIVE* Thunderbolt 3 cable. As such, at 2m length, it can only offer charging up to 60W max (fine for the 13" MBP, but not for the 15" MBP). It also likely means it can only offer USB speeds of USB 2.0 (0.5 Gbps), rather than the 5 or 10 Gbps of USB 3.

    The main positive, is that it can still offer full Thunderbolt speeds at Thunderbolt 3's 40 Gbps.

    Overall disappointing, but likely good for the price. Seemingly other companies are becoming able to offer 2m length Tbolt 3 cables, that offer at least 5 Gbps over USB as well, *and* with full 85W 15" MBP charging capabilities. For example, on the new LG 5K Display released in December 2016, they're seemingly supplying an *ACTIVE* 2m Tbolt 3 cable, capable of offering USB-C 5 Gbps (via the outgoing 3x USB-C ports on the back of the display) *plus* charging of a 15" MBP.

    All in all, a rather curious cable, with specs that are not really the 'complete' ones one would want, but at a relatively affordable price. And given, unfortunately, there seems to be nothing yet available that you can buy as a standalone cable (without also buying the 5K display!), that offers full functionality at 2m+ lengths.
