Cable worked for first 4-6 weeks. Was used to connect an external HDD to my iMac. It was supposed to function as the Time Machine backup and did so for several weeks before performance became unreliable. Backups failed every other week then every couple of days. Contacted Apple Support as well as maker of the external HDD. Troubleshooting pointed to this cable. I replaced the cable with another and the problems disappeared. Contacted seller and they agreed to take item back but demanded original packaging and papers. Some 2-3 months had gone by and I did not have the original packaging. (Who keep can ALL packaging for every purchase they make? For larger purchases - sure. But how hard is it to re-wrap a cable?) Seller refused any further concessions. This purchase was a waste of money and the company did not stand behind it. Avoid!

Received a mini-displayport cable instead of a Thunderbolt cable. Just because they have the same connector does not mean they are the same thing! A displayport cable can only connect to a single monitor (without chaining), while a true thunderbolt cable can support many chained devices / multi purpose hubs and so on. I returned the first one for a replacement, only to receive the same thing again!

All Thunderbolt cables can heat up because they contain microchips and transmit electrical energy as well as data.

The StarTech 0,5m Thunderbolt cable seems to get hotter than Apple cables and it appears to cause the attached device to heat up. I attached it to a Seagate Thunderbolt adapter and the Seagate drive became very warm after a few minutes. I had to run it next to a fan to cool it. The cable itself, especially at the ends where the electronics are located, seems to get hotter than Apple Thunderbolt cables. I have four Apple Thunderbolt cables and none of them heat up as much as the StarTech cable under similar conditions.

I'm disappointed with the apparent poor heat dissipation of the StarTech Thunderbolt cable, since the length and the appearance of this cable are exactly what I was looking for.

I suggest potential buyers spend some time to research reviews of black Thunderbolt cables in general, including products that include them. It's possible they are coming from the same source. It's also possible that my experience is an isolated incident.

If this is an isolated incident then these are nice cables, if overheating is a general issue then prepare to be disappointed in this otherwise fine product.

The StarTech Cable:

The StarTech cable works fine, and is slightly less expensive than Apple branded. The company has a good reputation, and the cable seems well constructed. 3 meters (~9.9 foot) is about as long as is available in a copper-based Thunderbolt cable. Longer distances require specialised, and even more expensive optical fibre cables. I have used this cable as a connection in a chain of fast external drives, in connecting one Mac to another in target disk mode, and in a more rarely used function, to use one iMac as a external monitor for another. In each of these capacities the cable has been flawless.I cannot discern any difference in speed between this and the shorter Apple branded cable.

More About Uses:

I have two 27 inch iMac's. One is brand spanking new, and very fast. In addition to a 4 GHz i7 processor, it has a remarkable 1 TB flash drive. As a composer, using a flash drive allows me to a load samples (for example, the sounds of a string section in an orchestra) very quickly, greatly improving the overall functioning of the several software packages. My other 27 inch iMac is quite elderly and recently became cranky. It was clear to me that in addition to a small, faltering internal hard drive, that a couple other issues were causing problems. What I was happy to discover is that by attaching it via a Thunderbolt cable, I can use it as a second monitor for my newer iMac, or for my Mac laptop. it can be used as either a mirror (showing a duplicate of your primary monitor), or as additional display space. You can’t do this with a dead machine. The iMac being converted into a monitor must still be able to boot. Only after booting can it be employed in target monitor mode.

I was shipped a Mini DisplayPort cable with the SKU and UPC for StarTech.com's Thunderbolt cables. Because I was connecting a MacBook to a Thunderbolt port replicator, this cable would not work.

I saw a couple people complain about this cable heating up, but I have not had any issues. I use this cable to connect my retina MacBook Pro to a Belkin thunderbolt dock. Probably put a good 80-100hrs on it in 2 weeks with no issues.

These cables are EXPENSIVE! They have a tiny circuit board at each end and that is what makes it difficult or impossible to duplicate. They are proprietary and licensed to only a very few Companies to sell under their own names. This is the ONLY way I know of to achieve that FAST transfer rate. What cha gonna do, eh! Anyways, it seems like a well constructed cable at that. Nice tight ends and fits snugly where it should. I absolutely do LOVE this cable because it definitely works as it should. I do have a gripe in that it's as expensive to own a MAC as it is to own a SPARK! I wish Linux has these <grin> It won't be long till they do or else I just didn't look diligently enough.
If you have the money it's well worth buying one otherwise you can't use the Thunderbolt adaptor either!
