      So Much Extra Stuff to keep track of

      Unlike the older versions of MacBook Pro, the late 2016 version, sleek, and lightweight, and neat looking, has sacrificed practicality for superficial appearanc Unlike the older versions of MacBook Pro, the late 2016 version, sleek, and lightweight, and neat looking, has sacrificed practicality for superficial appearance. Instead of having the multiple ports that made the older versions of MBP so useful, you now have to carry around extra paraphernalia like this to be able to interface with all the other stuff that most people use - flash drives, and phones in need of charging and a super drive to back up your files. You need that more often now, because the higher price tag on the MBP means less storage space. So in order to have even half the practicality of previous MBP's, you have to keep track of this adapter, and the lightning cords, and the non-mag-safe power adapter, and now I have to find the means of uploading photos from memory cards, because there isn't any kind of adapter for that, yet. So buy this piece of junk, and make sure you don't lose track of it and the dozen other pieces you need in the name of sleekness of design, and maximizing profits.

      Essential but at an unfair cost

However, as if purchasing the latest Macbook wasn't expensive enough, you now have no choice but to buy this as an added extra if you want to sync your phone to iTunes, download software or connect to digital camera etc. I agree with the majority when i say this should be included with the Mac or at least offered for discounted price at the time of purchasing the Mac. Just goes to show that the move to USB-C is just a way for apple to make their products more exclusive and give users no choice but to buy their add-ons at an unfair extra cost.

      I just purchased a USB-C Adapter and IT DOES NOT WORK

      I have NEVER had an issue with the USB adapter that I purchased in 2016 with my MacBook Pro. I recently needed to get another one and purchased directly from Ap I have NEVER had an issue with the USB adapter that I purchased in 2016 with my MacBook Pro. I recently needed to get another one and purchased directly from Apple. IT will not recognize my G drive and is 100% worthless! I will be returning it and finding another option. How disappointing.

      Works perfectly for me!

      I used this adapter to attach my old card reader to my new MacBook Pro. It is a perfect fit and it works just fine. I am confused by the bad reviews.

      Pile of hot garbage

      This is horrible, it's way too expensive and works maybe 1/10 times I plug it in. Doesn't matter which port I plug it into or which device I use. I want my old This is horrible, it's way too expensive and works maybe 1/10 times I plug it in. Doesn't matter which port I plug it into or which device I use. I want my old 2013 Macbook Pro back, this 2017 version has 0 traditional USB ports, and only 4 USB-c ports. I have way more things than that that I need to plug in. This is about as lame as removing the headphone jack from the iphone. I don't need my Macbook to be waterproof, just give me USB ports that work.
