For some currently unknown reason, the video on an external monitor glitches periodically to a low resolution and the only way to reset it is to change the resolution to some other value and then back to best for monitor setting. I have found it best to not use this adapter with external USB drives of any kind. Sometimes the drive decides to unmount in the middle of a read or write operation--Not good for data integrity or drive performance. The biggest negative is that there are no documented alternatives that do not have similar poor reviews. I guess this line of netbooks, oh, sorry, premium Apple notebooks with USB-C really isn't meant to be used with any external peripherals ... other than a charger and a set of ... headphones ...

      Useless since last update

      Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware update -- unless you're ready to reboot at least once a day: it sure works, for a few hours, and then the LED of your drive lights up, you hear the drive spin (if that kind of drive) but it no longer mounts, until you reboot. C'mon, what is this? Not even worth a single star...

      Don't buy it unless you have no other choice...

      If you can get an aftermarket version, do it. It works great, when it works.... Sometimes I get "no signal" and sometimes the monitor just flashes on and off If you can get an aftermarket version, do it. It works great, when it works.... Sometimes I get "no signal" and sometimes the monitor just flashes on and off for a bit. I need the multiport function for a VGA monitor and USB for the wireless keyboard and mouse, but haven't used the additional USB-C port it provides.

      Does not always work

      Bought this overpriced adapter thinking that an Apple product would be worth the investment.

It works well with all the VGA devices I have used so far, no problems. BUT the USB C port only works for power with my apple USB C charger. It does not work with a perfectly functioning USB C cable I have for a sony product. The USB C port does not work for data transmission to and from a reputable Sandisk drive with USB A and C. The Sandisk drive works fine when plugged in to my Macbook directly. There is nothing wrong with the drive, only the adapter. The USB 3 port works fine for a USB dongle I have for a wireless mouse. It does NOT work to send and receive data from the Sandisk drive which has both USB C and A male attachments. How do I get a refund or exchange?

      Works just long enough to get through the warranty period...

Turns out they come with a one year warranty, so I just managed to squeak past the period of time where they'd replace it. Now I'm left with a little piece of junk and no support...
