    Overpriced, inconvenient, should not be necessary

    $20 is $15 too much for this product. USB-C cables fall out of the sockets with the slightest nudge. Getting rid of regular USB was the worst of several blunders on the latest Macbook Pros (beautiful machines but infuriating). I lost one of these already. Thanks apple.

    cheap quality, just like new Macbook.


    I'm not surprised that y'all came up with some stupid ripoff like an adapter for my USB/HDMI devices, but I AM surprised when the ripoff stops working for no apparent reason. This has just begun to happen with another one of my USB-C adapters...

    I have an external hard drive, and literally months later, it starts improperly ejecting for no reason, interrupting my work. I found, that if you nudge the USB-C adapter even a little bit - a bump from a car ride will do - that it ejects anything its connected to, without fail. Which, as you all know, is really bad for the data stored inside it.

    I had to purchase a new one, not only to stop the nuisance of my work being interrupted every five minutes, but also to preserve my data.

    This product is a load of bs, but Apple forces us to buy it in order to use the new Macbook with all the other accessories we probably use with it. My Mac was a gift, otherwise I wouldn't have purchased.

    Apple, y'all are too much for this. At least make the ripoff products from good quality parts. At least hire someone with a decent hourly wage in our home country to craft these pointless devices. For real, it's not fair to your consumers, and you're just being greedy.

    Similar feedback for the iPhone 7. An attachment for an auxiliary input? Are you kidding me? In what world does that make any sense on a phone that also works as an mp3 player? You realize, that not everybody can afford, or wants, silly bluetooth earbuds that they're probably gonna lose in a few weeks anyway. I'll say it again: Greed.

    Hope this helps anyone looking to invest in quality technology rather than a shiny new Macbook.

    Not a true USB adapter

    Does not work with any flash drives I've tried nor with my Canon T4i USB connector.

    Way to go! This is the most ridiculous change Apple could have made. After spending over $2000 on a Mac book we now have to spend $75 plus tax to access the three USB-c ports and any external hardware. The cables are the same flimsy design that iPhone user have been complaining about for years.

    unnecessory cost

    After spending over about 2500$ now you have to spend so much extra to keep up with it, which is definitly not efficient. Apple need to re think or atleast provide with its new buyers of its latest macbooks with some courtesy goodies.

    Filled with RAGE.

    I can't believe I bought this. Every time someone hands me a USB disk or I need to quickly access a USB device, I firstly think "No problem!" and then immediately get a rush or RAGE... followed by.. "DO I HAVE AN ADAPTER ON ME????"

    IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY APPLE!!! Frickin useless.

    So Frustrated

    I just bought a new Mac computer and read that I needed an adapter for things like my Wacom drawing pad and my external hard drive. So I purchased this adapter. I tried plugging it in and the pad lights up like it's working but will not work, the same with my external hard rive. So disappointed and actually not sure what the solution is here.

    It worked 5 times

    I bought this with my new MacBook Pro. It worked 5 times before it was dead.
    Of those five times it was a bit slow to connect connected devices.

    I don`t find this product worthy the Apple name.

    I really wish I could buy peripherals with native USB-C support!
    Seriously Apple, as usual you're 300 miles ahead of everyone else, that's fine in terms of Retina and Processing Speed. Right-now USB-C is next to useless when wanting to attach a portable hardrive for instance. 2x USB Ports on the MacBook Pro would have given the right balance between old and new. I suspect USB-C will be surpassed by thunderbolt when peripheral manufactures eventually catch-up.
    The portable USB-C adapter is flimsy, expensive and just ugly - makes an otherwise elegant MacBook Pro a little disappointing and frustrating to use.

    Totally willing to endure the minor inconvenience of not being able to connect any peripherals without a dongle in the name of ushering in superior technology, but this adapter was dead on arrival. Based on reviews, it seems like this isn't an isolated incident. Very disappointing experience with a brand that used to surprise and delight with every purchase. This should be a simple thing to get right, and it's an insult to consumers to charge so much for something of such poor quality.

    Simple and great.

    The speed of port is blazingly fast and connection is tight and secure.

    Does what it's supposed to do

    Kind of disturbed that the review people find most useful of this product is a commentary of the the 2016 MacBook Pro and NOT of the USB-C to USB-A adapter. As far as this review goes for the actual product....it does what it is supposed to do. I have used it to connect 2 crummy keyboards, 2 different mice, assorted thumb drives, and a Samsung t1 USB 3.1 external drive. I have even remote played a PS4 with the dual shock controller plugged into this adapter. It works for what it is supposd to do. Some have mentioned that it will not connect to certain items. We are talking about a USB port here. Odds are if it won't connect, the item is broken, requires strange drivers, or is improperly formatted. I have had no issues connecting yet, will update if I connect something that won't work.

    It does not work with my USB audio cable (USB 2.0, Esprit Eterna). Does not recognise the cable at all. It works with external hard drive (USB 2.0 LaCie) though. Seems to be a picky and unreliable product.

    Works occasionally

    Some USB devices get power but no data connection, like Sony cameras. False advertisement, it's not a real USB adapter.

    Only worked once

    Has worked with 1 usb drive but doesn't work with others. The drive it worked on was a usb 3.0 external SSD and it could only connect and copy at 480mbps... Other usb drives, flash drives, don't even get detected.
