Top Customer Reviews
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 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.Read more ›
If you have the money it's well worth buying one otherwise you can't use the Thunderbolt adaptor either!
