      So Much Extra Stuff to keep track of

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.

      Perfect; no complaints. Rarely even use it anymore.

      This device is not even one that I would consider "essential" anymore. Most of my devices are completely wireless - including my Nikon DSLR camera that I use fo This device is not even one that I would consider "essential" anymore. Most of my devices are completely wireless - including my Nikon DSLR camera that I use for most of my work - and I rarely need to plug anything in anymore. If I need to plug in my iPhone to charge - which is a rare occurrence when I'm out on the go - I just use the USB-C to Lightning cable that I got which charges it much faster anyway. My MacBook Pro (2017) 15-inch with TouchBar and TouchID has a 2TB SSD in it, so I don't even need to connect external drives or USB sticks to it either as I can store everything on my actual computer. The only drive I connect is my Time Machine drive which I do at night and I usually use the Multiport Adapter for that anyway (the one with USB-C, HDMI, USB). So to be quite honest many of you may not even need this drive anymore, with the massive SSD's that you can configure your MacBook Pro to these days and the many USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 devices that are out there - let alone wireless sync, etc. - if this isn't essential, don't waste your money on it! And if you absolutely need a USB-A port, but don't need more than one at a time, I highly recommend that you instead get the USB-C Digital Multiport Adapter instead with USB-C/HDMI/USB as it is more practical. That said, this device is perfect, and in terms of a review, works 100% without issues and at what I believe to be a fair cost, I just personally don't use it much and question it's practicality these days.

After then spending £19 on this product you realise that the USB port is actually too small and you almost break it every time you try and insert your memory stick. Even after all of that mine hasn't worked since the moment I brought it home. Dont buy it. More use not having it and using something like OneDrive to back up your work.
