      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.

      Useless

      You will not be able to connect your display to your Mac even if both have a mini DisplayPort.

      No problems (PC)

      A little hesitant about purchasing both cable and adapter after seeing the negative reviews. Not sure what’s going on, maybe Apple users aren’t that tech savvy. A little hesitant about purchasing both cable and adapter after seeing the negative reviews. Not sure what’s going on, maybe Apple users aren’t that tech savvy. I’m connecting my Apollo Twin MKII to my PC through an ASUS thunderbolt pcie card. There is a few glitches with audio through different applications however, while in a DAW there is no problems. Don’t let the ridiculous 1 star reviews scare you. If it works on a Microsoft computer there should be no problems on a Mac. The only thing bad is the price. Hence the 4 star rating.

I bought another one in 2017 and it also did not work. I now use an ethernet cable which is always reliable for transfer.
