      Expensive Piece of Junk

      If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the access If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the accessory you've been dreaming of. I've tried different monitors. I've tried different HDMI cables. Nothing seems to help. This thing is incredibly frustrating to use. If you do decide to call support, expect to be on the phone for an hour only to be told "try plugging it into another port" on your single port usb-c macbook...

      WARNING - Bad Hardware

      This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own Super This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own SuperDrive, pre 2011) than don't work with this adaptor, but there are more that don't work - both for storage OR Time Machine (!). This is really bizarre since the other USB-C to USB-A adaptor WILL work, but since this adaptor doesn't supply power to your MacBook, it's not a long term solution. In the instances where the Multiport adaptor DOES work with an external hard drive, it can experience drastically reduced speeds and randomly unmount the drive. The straight USB adaptor, with the same drive, does not show these issues. I can't believe Apple put this on the market without 1) more rigorous testing and 2) with this serious an issue. Having an external hard drive work with your laptop is a pretty important requirement. Terrible, terrible piece of equipment. I was an Apple employee and have worked with Macs for decades. This issue was diagnosed with a genius at an Apple Store after we went through several Multiport and regular USB adaptors, and then followed up with additional testing at home. Apple should be ashamed.

      Don’t even think about buying this adapter.

      I bought this and it doesn’t work. iPad pro11 and testet it with several different displays. Don’t try your luck, save your money. I am just angry i didn’t I bought this and it doesn’t work. iPad pro11 and testet it with several different displays. Don’t try your luck, save your money. I am just angry i didn’t read these comments before. They tell the whole story. I am quite amazed that apple dos not comment on this obvious product error. It is still recommended as compatible with iPad Pro 11. I am using apple for a long time now, and in the past if they said it works, it worked.

      Lasted for 48 hours

      I got the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter for my birthday, and I was so excited to use it to show my computer on my TV. I was having some trouble with other I got the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter for my birthday, and I was so excited to use it to show my computer on my TV. I was having some trouble with other things on my computer, and when I finally got it to work, I plugged in the HDMI and it wouldn’t show up on the tv! It had shown up just minutes before, but now it simply didn’t work! My phone was also plugged into it, and it kept charging then not charging. I am so angry that it didn’t even work for 48 hours! I tried to find a solution, both online and by myself. I restarted my computer, phone, and turned off my TV. Nothing worked! I plugged everything back in, nothing! I searched online, no solution. I’m really angry at the poor, horrible quality of this product and wish I had never gotten it! I’m so angry right now!
