Choetech, once again, delivers on a top quality product. This Thunderbolt 3.0 cable is authentic and is capable of the full 40 Gbps transfer speed (tested). I've used this to support a 4K monitor from my MacBook Pro with perfect image display, unnoticeable lag and zero frame rate issues - the difference between using this and the included USB-C to USB-C cable from my monitor was staggering. The USB-C cable simply couldn't handle the data but this Thunderbolt cable worked a breeze. Choetech seems to provide the cheapest (genuine 40 Gbps) cable at this length so this deal is actually very good value (I searched extensively for a cheaper alternative and found nothing). I would say that, in general, a cable of this length will be longer for most applications, it provides the full 40 Gbps transfer rate.

I can work with either my Macbook Pro connected to the cigarette adaptor or my iPad Pro 2019 12.9" in the passenger seat of a car with no problems. This is a great Thunderbolt 3 cable for the described uses.

I bought this cable to connect macbook to external monitor. Works perfectly.
It also charges the Mac albeit limited by the charge power of the monitor.

Just purchased an M1 Mac mini and needed some more Thunderbolt 3 cables, requested this hoping it would be ok. It is more than ok.
Tested it by connecting a CalDigit TS3 Plus dock. Everything functions as expected, no performance impact on IO speeds to connected devices. Nice.
Got a TB3 NVMe enclosure to test (WD Black SN850 inside) and also ran some benchmarks with this cable after using the included TB3 cable. If anything, it was slightly faster with the BolAAzul TB3 cable.
Somewhat bemused by the complaints about value relating to this; it's a Thunderbolt 3 cable that matches Apple's own $39 Thunderbolt 3 cable in every technical regard (and arguably better build quality)

Plugged it into my Thunderbolt hub immediately and was working at TB3 speeds immediately, as well as getting full PD high speed charging.
thunderbolt 3 cables are notoriously expensive. for a full-spec cable this is a really good price. at least for the 3ft. that I bought.
so far, buy with confidence. I will update if that opinion changes.
