    Same as many other reviews

    • Written by CARY H from Bellaire

    My wife and I each own one of these for our lap tops. Mine worked flawlessly for about 6 months and then simply quit. There was no trauma to the cable. It still looks perfect. I didn't think that it could possibly be the cable, so I spent several weeks trying to figure out what was wrong with my new GoPro camera when the problem was this cable the whole time. Then, I tried my wife's cable and it worked perfectly.

    Perfect solution for the future

    • Written by Dawn I from Fountain Hills

    I have no idea what the negative reviews are about. This is a perfect and reasonable solution to access any device to the MacBook Air. It works great with thumb drives and external hard drive devices. Get over the fact that you need this and spend the $20.

    Will Not Work With iPad Pro 11"

    • Written by Richard M from Easton

    I should have read the reviews on Apple.com before buying this. It does not work with an iPad Pro 11". I called Apple support this evening. The support person emailed me the case number and a link to "Charge and connect with the USB-C port on the new iPad Pro" at support.apple.com. It says there you need to use the Belkin USB-A to USB-C cable to sync the iPad Pro 11" and iTunes on a PC or Mac. I have one of those and it works just fine.

    The Apple adapter does work with a laptop with USB-C for connecting a USB thumb drive.

    I am returning it to Best Buy. I bought it there because my local Apple Store was out of them until then end of the first week in January.

    Adapter

    • Written by BARBARA D from Syracuse

    Just the name alone says it all. On the new Macs you need an adapter to plug into anything because Apple decided to change the cord. The adapter box is cumbersome and there doesn't seem to be a shorter cord. This adapter can only be purchased at an Apple store because most other stores don't sell it. The only outlet plug the adapter fits is not a nice neat compact unit but the bigger bulky ones. Not sure how they decided this was a good idea.

    iPad Pro Adapters

    • Written by Andrew E from Cwmbran

    I've now bought 2 x different types of usb-c to usb adapters and none of them work, after spending ££££ on the New iPad Pro I wish I had bought a standard iPad, apple need to understand that the average customer does not always have their top of the range new products to suit this new connection to allow them to do the basic set up, I've wasted ££ trying to set this up, nightmare!!!

    WHY USB-C

    • Written by Atif A from Sheikhupura

    I don't understand why Apple don't give any standard USB port and why we need this USB connector after buying $2500+ laptop. And it didn't work as well

    USB-C to USB Adapter

    • Written by Zachary G from Whittier

    This adapter isn't bad. Just picked one up today. It charges consistently, data transfer is excellent, and the quality is great. The only thing is you have to make sure the slots line up perfectly then slide it in. I look forward to use this product often.

    STUCK

    • Written by Val K from Zagreb

    OK, let's first get over the fact we even need this adapter, and that it costs 20 bucks. It is what it is, but that should be the end of the troubles. Now, let me tell you this;
    the USB-A side is so tight, it is virtually impossible to remove a plugged-in device without tugging on the wire so hard damage to it is unavoidable.
    DO NOT BUY, FIND AN ALTERNATIVE.

    Worthless Adapter for iPAD Pro

    • Written by Six F from Washington, DC

    It’s sad that Apple created a beautiful hardware product like the iPAD Pro and limited the functionality. Save your money and don’t buy this adapter if you plan to transfer files from a USB drive because it won’t work. Hopefully Apple will update iOS to allow this adapter and iOS to utilize USB Drives.

    I bought the iPAD Pro to replace my laptop, however it can’t even read a simple USB drive. I’m actually considering returning my iPAD Pro until it has more functionality.

    USB-C Adapter

    I recently updated my Mac book pro and I was in need of a USB adapter since I use flash drives to save my work. I purchased this USB adapter and has worked perfectly. I have no trouble in opening any files.

    Very Reliable

    • Written by Betty R B from MONTICELLO

    I give this a 5 because I have had 100% success with this adapter for the past year. I have connected USB 2.0 and USB 3 devices with total reliability to the thunderbolt 3 ports of newer Macs. I have successfully transferred large amounts of data as well as - no data loss. Some people report problems but I have had none and can continue to use my legacy equipment.

    Takes fifteen or twenty attempts to plug in. Doesn't fit well into the port

    • Written by Michael F from Santa Monica

    Like other defective Apple products, the USB-C end of this adapter plug does not fit well into the new MacBook Pro computer port. You need a light shining on it and glasses or magnifying glass to make the precise connection, or you will sit there trying over and over, plugging and plugging a dozen or more times, sliding it over the port but it just won't go in.

    But I expect nothing more from Apple who make great computers and devices but horrible, malfunctioning accessories and applications that are impossible to figure out how to use.

    Apple refuses to make their products user-friendly or show customers how to use them. They keep their directions a secret only some Apple employees know. That way customers have to schedule multiple trips to their "genius" bar, attend workshops with little information, or pay Apple more money for one-on-one training.

    Not Good

    • Written by Nick S from Brooklyn

    I use Logic. A lot. I never had any issues with latency or distortion when plugging into an interface. Now, since recently getting a new Macbook, which required a USB to USB-C adapter I am having major latency and distortion issues.

    I will be trying Amazon's direct USB to USB-C cable to replace the dongle that Mac makes. Fingers crossed that makes my very expensive Apple device work properly. Why Apple doesn't make a USB to USB-C cable? Dunno.

    Does exactly what it's supposed to do.

    • Written by David W from Birmingham

    I really don’t understand all the complaints about this dongle. The elegance of having only USB-C ports is that (1) all cables (power, peripherals, etc.) will ONLY connect via USB-C, so you will NEVER have to worry about whether or not you have the right cable. All the cables will be right! The only cable left to switch over is the Lightning port, which really looks too much like USB-C anyway and really NEEDS to switch to USB-C. (2) The USB-C adapter, like the Lightning adapter, works the same right side up or upside down. In other words, unlike the old USB adapters, it doesn't matter which way you plug it in...it will always work. This is obviously SO MUCH BETTER than the old USB, not even accounting for how much more bandwidth and power it can handle, that it really doesn't make sense to have anything but USB-C.

    So, for all the whiners out there complaining about carrying around too many dongles, here's a suggestion: buy one of these adapters for every USB peripheral you own and simply leave the dongle plugged into the cable. Now, it's just an extension of that USB cable you already own. But now your cable is a few cm longer. Oh, and if the $19 x the number of peripherals you own is going to break the bank, maybe you're buying the wrong brand of computer in the first place. If you spend $2,000 plus on a laptop, then another $100 or so in dongles shouldn't be stressing you out so much.

    For those thinking about buying this...if you think you need it, then yes, you need it. Just buy it and know that you’ll have the Apple brand dongle which is meant to work with your Apple brand computer.

    Very Disappointed

    • Written by ann L from Boulogne

    I bought a Macbook pro 15 touch bar computer in the USA and bought the USB adapter at the same time...when I returned to France, I bought another adapter for good measure only to discover, today, (two months later) that neither of them fit with whatever ordinary USB I try to use. Now what? I'll have to try a third party producer? Clearly, including a USB-C in the design of the computer forces users to buy the adapters. That's bad enough, but if they don't work?

    It's Okay For Transferring But That's It
