      So Much Extra Stuff to keep track of

      Unlike the older versions of MacBook Pro, the late 2016 version, sleek, and lightweight, and neat looking, has sacrificed practicality for superficial appearanc Unlike the older versions of MacBook Pro, the late 2016 version, sleek, and lightweight, and neat looking, has sacrificed practicality for superficial appearance. 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.

      Love it. Delivers the high speed plus great design

      I don’t understand why everyone else is complaining about this adapter. Some people say it barely delivers usb 2.0 speed but NOPE. The adapter is very fast an I don’t understand why everyone else is complaining about this adapter. Some people say it barely delivers usb 2.0 speed but NOPE. The adapter is very fast and did not bottleneck my connection with ssd (I met around 400MB/s) when I connected it to my MBP. Plus unlike other adapters from random brand this one has great minimal design and matches my other apple accessories.

      USB side of adapter is NOT STANDARD SIZE

      I bought this Apple-brand USB-C to USB adapter today, and tried to connect a Nook, Samsung Tab, and finally, several Apple-brand standard USB-plug cables. NONE I bought this Apple-brand USB-C to USB adapter today, and tried to connect a Nook, Samsung Tab, and finally, several Apple-brand standard USB-plug cables. NONE of them fits. I guess I'll try a generic, because I love my new MacBook!

      Do not buy!

      Broke after using it for 1 month. Very cheap and annoying to use.
