    Unreliable, unreliable, unreliable

    • Written by from Westborough

    If this cable is bumped, even slightly, or if the computer is moved a bit, everything it connects to gets disconnected (I have a Belkin dock, so that's three disk drives, a scanner, and Ethernet at a minimum); and since the cable has an inch long header with active circuitry built in, it's just hanging out waiting to be bumped. Finally, it just stopped working at all.

    Please Make These Cables in Different Colors!

    • Written by from Hypoluxo

    Love the capabilities these cords posses. Wishing I could get them color coded. At least make the plastic connector in different colors. Please design them ask (RED) to sponsor the Red ones to start then watch to see if people respond to the change. PLEASE AND THANK YOU! & just another thought dual and quad connectors on one cord...

    stopped working

    • Written by from Cambridge

    This cable stopped working after maybe a couple dozen uses. I used it to connect my macbook to a Vizio tv. Nothing changed in how the cable was used, it simply stopped transmitting picture and sound to the TV. For $40, I certainly expected better.

    Thunderbolt cable from Apple

    • Written by from Toledo

    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

    • Written by from Chelsea

    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.
