    Best compared to others

    • Written by lucas M from Pasadena

    Went to Best Buy and picked up the same thing but by Insigna brand. Actually bought 2 different ones by that brand just to make sure it worked for my MacBook 12 inch. This was important due to me using it to run a 15,000 lumen projector advertisement for a big brand client. THe insignia adapters cost more than this adapter now costs. THe projection looked low resolution the first 2 nights and after testing everything with frustration I went to Best Buy and bought the Apple brand. As soon as I plugged into the mac, it asked to install an update, restart and then another update and restart. The image ended up looking high resolution and all issues were cleared up.

    I learned my lesson to only buy Apple gear versus the other junk even though the price is close to the same. I see a lot of negative reviews about this adapter on this site but it seems Apple has cleared up the issues, whatever they were. If i can run a 500 inch screen using this thing, you should be able to run a monitor.

    USB-C to VGA multiport adaper

    • Written by Peter K from Princeton

    I have a one year old MacBook and recently got an older Dell monitor (E170SB) with a VGA cable that I wanted to connect. After a lot of snooping on the net, I settled on this Mac Multiport (despite the somewhat hight price, $49). Glad I did. It works fine. The monitor has no problems (note you can set Displays in System Preferences to optimize for it), charging is as usual, and I noticed no difference in connecting to and using two different (older) USB drives. Only problem so far was that one USB thumb drive was too wide to be connected at the same time as the VGA connector.

    So I'm bewildered by all the negative reports. Not my experience at all.

    Maybe I should mention that as soon as I plugged the Multiport in, I was prompted to upgrade some software (even before I connected anything to it but the Macbook, IIRC).

    Much Better Than the After Market Knock Off!

    • Written by CAROLYN C from hillsborough

    I was taken about by the price, but still I bought one. I needed a second one for work - didn't want to carry the adapter back and forth - for sure I'd forget at home or at work. So I bought a "look a like" off Amazon. The knock-off has lasted about 4 months and interestingly, the VGA portion is performing much like many of the reviewers are complaining about the Apple adapter. Strange because I have had the Apple adapter for both a later 2015 12 inch Retinal display and now a 2017 MacBook Pro laptop and it has been great. I use the adapter for both a monitor and to drive a projection device (both are VGA) and I charge my computer and listen to music through the USB port with a Logitech speaker. I do think that you need to make sure your VGA connection is tight. It's annoying to tighten the screws, but when one of those failed, that is when my knock-off monitor connection also failed. Just a thought...

    Works fine.

    • Written by John B from WHITTIER

    Ironic, this same product gets 5/5 stars on Amazon yet all the hate on Apple.com. It does what it's supposed to do.

    Multiport Adapter - works fine with new MacbookPro

    • Written by David C from Bognor Regis

    I bought the USB-C VGA multiport adapter with my new MacBookPro (with function keys and only two USB C ports).
    Set up the MacBook Pro in the Covent Garden Apple Store (helpful, intelligent staff) and used it to run a Powerpoint presentation (with VGA cable to external monitor) in Dubai the next day. Everything worked FINE.
    I have now run courses in six different locations, with different screens and VGA adaptors in each place, and had only one problem: at the third venue I closed the lid of my Macbook before going to lunch. On return I lifted the lid of the MacBook, screen came to life immediately ... but had intermittent flashing black windows opening and closing. Minor panic ... but after disconnecting the multiport adapter and reconnecting, everything worked fine.
    Also, having read negative comments about having to have an external adapter in the first place, I was pleasantly surprised with how easy was to tuck the adapter (with VGA, USB and Power cables connected) around the back of my MacBook so that they didn't get in the way at the side.

    Works great for external monitors

    • Written by Chris H from Clayton

    I tried several cheaper, non-apple versions of this adaptor and had problems with them. The main issue is that when I put my monitor to sleep, the other versions make my external monitors act funny. With the Apple version, it shuts the external monitors down too. This device gets a lot of poor reviews but it works perfect for what I use it for. I use two external monitors on either side of my iMac.

    AwesomeQ! Works very well!

    • Written by Peter M from Warner

    Purchased the USB-C VGA Multi-port Adapter to use on my new MacBook Pro 13" with Touch Bar. This works excellent. I conduct a lot of teacher training workshops and therefore do lots of presentations and show lots of videos. The adapter has been working fine. I only really need this one adapter during workshops as it has the USB 3, USB-C Charging slot and VGA all in one. I use the USB 3 to plug in my back HDD and I have all three slots busy during all of my workshops. This adapter works very well and am very happy with it.
