Whats the deal with the short thunderbolt cable>
Love my Akitio Node. The cable that comes with it however is REALLY short. From what I read they "need" to be short?? Is that right? Has anyone successfully connected a longer cable without issue? Would be nice to at least have 6ft of cable so I dont have to listen to the fan so close.
They are usually short to meet the spec without being too expensive, as you go for longer cables they need to be active to keep the data intact. Here is a thread on here with discussion of what cables worked for others. As long as you double check it meets your requirements (40gbps, 100w pd) you should be fine.
