      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.

      Should be more functional but ok for watching movie on TV.

      I wanted to share my experience with this regarding the USB ports. The video and audio for a movie worked fine for me on my TV via hdmi cable from monoprice. I wanted to share my experience with this regarding the USB ports. The video and audio for a movie worked fine for me on my TV via hdmi cable from monoprice. The USB A receptacle: I plugged my iPhone X in here and it would charge and allow me to transfer photos to and from the iPad Pro. I tried a USB stick which triggered the photos app but there were no photos to import so it didn't do anything. I tried syncing to my MacBook Pro via a USB A to USB A cable and nothing happened. USB C: could charge from my MacBook Pro but could not sync via a USB C to USB A cable (works fine without the adaptor - just wanted to test). In summary I would have liked to know what this did before I bought it so I wish apple would just put it in the description of this expensive adaptor. That is why I took away two stars: poor documentation of the product. It needs to be able to move any file type to the file system and it should be able to sync the iPad Pro to my MacBook through the adaptor on both USB A and USB C ports. When you don't live in the big city wifi and other services aren't always available making the iPad not so useful as a field tool.
