    Is the StarTech 3m the longest Thunderbolt cable currently available?

    Has anyone used it? Early reports show it heats up a lot more then the standard Apple cables. Can anyone confirm?

    Sumitomo and Corning are supposed to shipping optical cables this quarter. I really am looking forward to getting a 10 - 20 meter cable. This will allow me to move my Pegasus R4 and Seagate 3TB drives to secure media location on a different floor of my house. I can rid myself of local HDDs from my home office.

    And considering Thunderbolt devices can be daisy chained, you only need the 1 long cable!
    I wonder how much they are going to cost though - cant be too cheap!
