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!
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...
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!
