The Startech Thunderbolt cable; is roughly the same price as the apple thunderbolt cable; but a full meter shorter. To my eyes there is a benefit that it comes in black rather than the apple white. I only ordered it as the apple cable delivery at the time of ordering had a longer delay. That said when connected up it doesn't give anything in terms of performance to the apple cable.

Given that the apple part is more or less the same price but longer that may be the better buy for you. If black fits in with your desk and you don't want the extra cable; the startech cable is a worthy substitute.

At the time of writing, this seems to be the only alternative cable to that supplied by Apple. It is a little more flexible than the Apple version and comes in several different lengths. I have used it to daisy chain 2 Thunderbolt drives and on to a monitor at the end of the chain and have had no problems. The only slight issue is that it seems a little tighter to insert than the Apple variant. However not a major problem.

For reasons unexplained, Apple currently only make 2m (or recently a newly added 0.5m) Thunderbolt cables. Why this is, is anyone's guess? But regardless, this leaves you a bit stuffed by Apple if you need a 3m one (the max length Thunderbolt currently works with on copper [non-optical] connections) so you can hide your Thunderbolt devices away in a cupboard somewhere, and this is where brands StarTech, Delock, and perhaps some others, have currently stepped-in to finish this last connection mile for users.

I have ones of each, both Apple 2m (white) and StarTech 3m (black), and I slightly prefer the latter. Not just because of length, but also because it's black (so is easier to hide, & more importantly doesn't show dirt/scuffs as easily), and also I find it's slightly thinner than Apple's ones, so is that little bit easier to handle/roll-up when needed.

So, to summarise: It's just a cable, really. It works, but (as all these things tend to be these days!) it's a bit pricey, hence a star drop accordingly for all these Thunderbolt cables.

I bought this cable to connect a Caldigit Thunderbolt Station to a Macbook Air and, although it is expensive for a cable, it's worked perfectly. I haven't noticed the cable getting particularly warm but I don't have an Apple cable to compare against.

I'd have no problem buying another and would certainly recommend this cable to others. The price is basically the same as Apple's but they have the advantage of being available in a colour other than white (important for some people!).

Available in multiple lengths and black or white: a reliable and more flexible alternative to Apple's own solutions.

I have been using one of these cables for a year, with a fast RAID box, with zero issues.

Very pleased with this cable. Bought to replace an Apple branded cable that started to overheat and caused my hardware to stop working making me think the hardware was faulty, which I'm very glad to say wasn't.

Well there isnt much to say- it does the job, its been tested against an Apple one for a few months and so far so good. It was also not as expensive, which is always a bonus!

StarTech makes excellent hardware and this cable is no exception: it looks like Apple's own product and serves the same function. What you have to watch is the length of this item: it's short. 50 centimetres is an okay length if the two devices you want to connect are right next each other, but it's woefully inadequate in other situations, especially when you consider that the connectors on the ends measure almost 3 centimetres each. Next time I will probably pay a bit extra and have the added flexibility of a longer cable.
