Title says it all. This cable worked fine the first two times I used it. On the day after Amazon's 30 day return window expired, I tried using it again and it did not work at all. A different cable from another manufacturer worked fine in the same configuration.
I tried contacting Kanex through their support web page. I created a support request ticket, which Kanex seems to have ignored. It's been 10 days now without a response. Both the support request and 'contact us' pages on their site are nothing more than web forms, lacking a phone number.
This cable was used twice, gently, and stored in a safe location until it was needed the third time, when it failed to work at all. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a $34 cable to work for more than two uses.
UPDATE, March 28, 2014
Kanex eventually did respond to my support ticket, telling me they could replace my cable if they tested it and found it defective, but warned that if it was not...
When I originally purchased the 2M Kanex-branded Thunderbolt cable for use with a Seagate Thunderbolt Adapter it was $10 cheaper than its Apple-branded equivalent. Since then Apple's dropped its 2M TB cable price to $39 as well. So currently the difference is a black cable vs. Apple's white one. Thus far the Kanex has performed reliably & I'd buy another--given the DOA frequency of this type of Apple product. Kanex seems to maintain high QC. Both suppliers ought to be $10 cheaper for a 2-meter cord.
Product worked for about one day. I bought two of these and use them to plug my laptop into two 34" monitors I bought from Amazon. I had previously bought 0.5m cables from apple that worked perfectly but forced my laptop to be super close to the monitor when I wanted flexibility. So I bought these. After one day, they constantly flicker and cause artifacts for my monitors. I'm returning and going with Apple's 2m thunderbolt cables (which I didn't realize were available or would have ordered those already).
