OWC Introduces Pricy 30-Meter Thunderbolt Cables

By - Source: OWC | B 9 comments

Don't let these be chew toys for your puppies!

OWC, also known as Other World Computing, has listed a thirty meters long Thunderbolt cable on its website.  Previously, the manufacturer only listed cables up to three meters long.

The new cables, which are 10, 20 and 30 meters long, will allow users to move the Thunderbolt devices far away or into another room.

OWC has indicated that its cables are compatible with both the Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2 specifications, allowing a data bandwidth of up to 20 GB/s.

Length (m)
MSRP ($)
0.5 m
$27.99
1.0 m
$34.99
2.0 m
$39.99
3.0 m
$44.99
10 m
$319.00
20 m
$619.00
30 m
$899.00

If you want a 30 meter Thunderbolt cable though, it'll cost you quite a bit, as OWC has priced it at a staggering, jaw-dropping $900. Don't let your dog chew on that!

    I can't think of why I would ever need a 30m $900 cable... I can get a decent NAS for that price

    The Corning Fiber Optic Thunderbolt Cables are cheaper than this, and they have way better signal over long distances, plus they can be bent 180 degree's or knotted (not that you'd need to knot your cables :p )

    So $899 for $10 in copper and $5 in plastic shielding. This is a fail.

    Why would anyone ever need an almost 100 foot long cable?
