Recently we showed you on the OWC Blog that our Thunderbolt cables offer great performance even at lengthy distances.
Tech website TweakTown also ran some tests recently on a variety of Thunderbolt cables from various makers, including OWC’s 1 meter offering, to get a head-to-head look at the cables’ performance.
Unsurprisingly, OWC’s Thunderbolt cable more than held up against the competition.
In fact, TweakTown’s Blackmagic Disk Speed Test with a Late 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina display showed OWC’s cables to be the fastest in both read and write results!
Check out the results from the testing below:

So there I was having one of my typical weekends. You know the kind – very Indiana Jones-esque. Anyways, there I am hanging off the side of a cliff looking for treasure and BOOM my rope snaps! Luckily for me not only did I have a good grip, but as I panic keep calm, I remember I have my NewerTech Lightning Cable in my manly explorer man-purse. I tied that bad boy up and my rope was better than new. Also it should be mentioned that I fought off a pack of lions with the cable not but a week later. (Note: Please do not try to hang from your NewerTech Lightning Cable at home… or in a temple.)
Back in reality, I had been doing something just as demanding: pushing my way though the waves and waves of people at SXSW here in Austin. There is one thing that even the most experienced SXSW-goer looks for several times during the day – a place to charge their phone. Sometimes it’s in a crowd of people pushing around a portable charge station. Other times it’s in a socket in a dark alley. Article Continues…
As we’ve showed you in the past, there are plenty of ways to break your iPhone. Admittedly, some ways are more common than others (most people tend to text while walking slightly more than they breakdance).
So how exactly are people breaking their iPhones? SquareTrade released some statistics on how the devices have been meeting their premature demise over the years. They’ve confirmed our rampant walking-and-texting habit by finding the No. 1 reason to be the iPhone “fell out of my hand”. (We have yet to confirm where “fell out of my wind turbine” ranks.) And 24 percent of owners either had their iPhone fall from their lap or knocked from the table. This is a significant portion of accidents, but these kinds of things just happen.
A separate study by mobileinsurance.co.uk illustrates the top reasons why these broken iPhone screens are often left unfixed:
