      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.

It does not charge. The HDMI port rarely works. You cannot connect a USB-C mouse and USB keyboard simultaneously.

      Pointless and unreliable

      To those who are not technical, you may well assume as I did that this great new thing USB-C was the end to all our woes, and that if Apple used it, it would be To those who are not technical, you may well assume as I did that this great new thing USB-C was the end to all our woes, and that if Apple used it, it would be Thunderbolt 2 or 3 ready in a £69 accessory like this, so you could plug a monitor into the USB-C port along with a 2nd one into the HDMI port. But no, all the USB-C port is for is power, which in the case of the Apple AV adapter I have, doesn't work, IE, I have a duff one. Anyway, why is it Apple don't make a 4 or 5 port USB-C hub with each of the ports TB3 ready, so one can connect the following to our MacBook Pros without worrying which port is TB3: TB3 hard drive, two external 4K monitors, power, GoPro Hero 6 (USB-C ready), removable TB3 drive, printer, wired mouse, camera such as the Panasonic GH5 that has a USB-C port. That's 8 items in total, 3 from the MB Pro direct, and 5 from the hub that is connected to one of the MB Pro ports. Hun should also include Speedy Ethernet port for wired connections, 3.5m audio in, 3.5m audio out and SD card slow. Chinese ones I have bought are unreliable. Apple? Over to you.
