    Don’t even think about buying this adapter.

    • Written by Clemens V from Gramatneusiedl

    I bought this and it doesn’t work.
    iPad pro11 and testet it with several different displays.
    Don’t try your luck, save your money.

    I am just angry i didn’t read these comments before. They tell the whole story.

    I am quite amazed that apple dos not comment on this obvious product error. It is still recommended as compatible with iPad Pro 11.

    I am using apple for a long time now, and in the past if they said it works, it worked.

    Lasted for 48 hours

    • Written by Aidan M from Palm Beach Gardens

    I got the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter for my birthday, and I was so excited to use it to show my computer on my TV. I was having some trouble with other things on my computer, and when I finally got it to work, I plugged in the HDMI and it wouldn’t show up on the tv! It had shown up just minutes before, but now it simply didn’t work! My phone was also plugged into it, and it kept charging then not charging. I am so angry that it didn’t even work for 48 hours! I tried to find a solution, both online and by myself. I restarted my computer, phone, and turned off my TV. Nothing worked! I plugged everything back in, nothing! I searched online, no solution. I’m really angry at the poor, horrible quality of this product and wish I had never gotten it! I’m so angry right now!

    Do NOT Purchase

    • Written by Jonathan S from Ashburn

    The adapter does not work consistently. It has to be plugged and unplugged multiple times over before it may decide to work for the day.

    Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't

    • Written by Veronica Y from Austin

    I use my laptop in my office and the connection to the monitors is fine. Same thing when I connect to my TV at home.
    But I also travel a lot and give presentations, and then, this dongle only works about 65% of the time. It's great when it works, but extremely inconvenient when it doesn't, and I haven't been able to predict yet when it does and when it doesn't.

    I got this for my birthday and I use it almost everyday! Having the new MacBook Pro with only USB - C adapters was a bit annoying but receiving this adapter is awesome! I use it for hours on end watching from my computer to my television screen. It is very expensive, but apple has a great policy on their items. I prefer an Apple product then off brand, worth the money in that sense.

    Quite Astonishing Device TBH

    • Written by Seth L from Ralston

    It took me a few months of use to realize what this adapter is truly capable of and I feel a bit foolish. Fortunately it has never been a major concern, but just today I managed to reduce from using 3 ports on my mbp, to just 1 with this adapter. I am almost embarrassed to admit that it took me this long to realize the USB-C port is for charging the MacBook, but that made my day to find out. I now have my external T5 Samsung SSD, 1 of 2 external HDMI displays, and USB-C charging bundled into 1 port, leaving me with two more unused ports for additional connectivity. What an incredible device!

    Junk! DO NOT BUY!

    • Written by Louis U from Lakewood

    Apple, please explain to all of us how you decided to make computer with no HDMI output and only USB-C ports and yet the only adapter you sell to project HDMI output is JUNK! This is the most upsetting thing ever. I understand wanting to be at the leader in technology and I don't mind paying extra for accessories, but when your adapters don't work. This is beyond upsetting. I wish I can give it 0 stars

    Useful port options in a useless form

    • Written by Sarah K from Toronto

    The port options do exactly as they say. HDMI, USB, and the USB - C. Great. But its large, cumbersome, and most importantly, I cannot charge my iPad (10.5 pro) through the USB C port using all apple cords.

    Jerky, laggy HDMI output - don't buy this!

    • Written by Ben P from Portland

    Horrible laggy video when connecting an external monitor to the HDMI port of this adapter. High latency and jerky, inconsistent frame rate. This adapter is effectively useless as a way to drive my external monitor.

    Tested on multiple 2018 macbooks. Another USB-C HDMI adapter from startech works flawlessly on these same laptops.

    Utter waste of money.

    • Written by Dylan K from Boulder

    I recently bought a 2017 15 inch MacBook Pro, and I also bought this accessory with it do push my display to a bigger monitor. The display output will flicker all day long no matter what you do I have tried different cables, different monitors, and even bought another one and see if it would work. Well, I guess I could say that I wasted 160 bucks on some adapters that dont even work. NOTE: The adapter WILL NOT supply power to the device if you are using any of the other ports at the same time. At times I consider to myself, why did i even buy a MacBook Pro for all this fuss?

    Multi-port? No. Only ONE port works at a time.

    • Written by Jessie J from Holmdel

    This works only to connect my hdmi cable. The other two ports are useless. If I plug ANYTHING into the USBC port, the monitor loses connection. The whole purpose of buying it was to get a multiport connector so I could charge my computer or back up at the same time I'm working with a larger monitor. It does NOT WORK. $69 for a useless device. I will be returning, but will have to find something that does work. If apple can't make a multi-port that works- does this mean I have to buy a non apple product to support my devices? The most ridiculous thing ever. And especially irritating given the macbook only has 2 ports- so a multi-port connector is critical if you ever want to work and charge at the same time.

    does not charge the ipad pro

    • Written by Joanne J from Natick

    I have the HDMI adapter to connect my ipad pro to an hdmi projector and the video transmits perfectly fine but it does not charge the device. this is extremely disappointing because I wanted to have the ipad plugged in to charge while is running a power point presentation on a full day of meetings. I need to find another adapter that can allow for charging.

    If I could give it zero stars, I would. The signal generated by the translator is not always strong enough to make it through the cable to the display device. I have had no better success using the genuine Apple device than generic translators. Both are equally useless. Trying to push a signal more than a few feet results in a failed connection that confuses the laptop's screen and the intended disp[lay. The laptop screen blinks between resolutions, and the target device goes into a hunt loop trying to connect. Like most Apple gear, this piece is grossly overpriced, a fact that is mutiplied by its inability to do the job it is designed to accomplish. I would be interested to try this device on a non-Apple laptop to see if the result is the same

    Dell makes a better one half price

    • Written by David B from Fairfax

    Clunky and poorly made, this dongle makes me wonder how this dongle benefits its users compared to using an older/slower mac. Even if included, with every mac, i'd be disappointed. The dongle doesn't fast charge iphone and only gives one USB A port meaning most users will need other dongles just to make their devices work. Extremely disappointed and will get the better made Dell Docking station for half the price

    Not a dock

    • Written by James O from Beeston

    I tried to use this as a simple dock for my 2018 15" MBP. Unfortunately, while it's perfectly usable if you want HDMI out or USB in or out (subject to the caveats in other reviews) it only passes 55 of the 87W my mains charger is able to deliver, so my laptop battery runs down while plugged in through this adapter while it's under load.

    If you're thinking of buying this to avoid plugging more than one thing in when you get back to your desk, don't If you're buying it to have an HDMI out while on battery power, it's fine.

    Massive loss in functionality within less than two years

    • Written by Mark P from Irvine

    I decided to get a macbook pro a little over a year ago (my first ever apple product) and bought one of these adapters for convenience. It seemed it a bit over priced, but I figured since it was the Apple brand adapter it would be a quality and last a while. Within less than two years, the hdmi and standard usb ports have both stopped working. Based on other reviews, it doesn't seem like this is problem is unique to me either. I bought a cheap off-band replacement, since I basically have no faith in apple at this point between this failure and issues with the laptop itself (had a keyboard effect pop up within this time frame as well).

    Can only say based on my experiences over the last year, I will likely never buy another apple product again. I planning to get a new laptop in about a year so I can at least say I squeezed out some value out of what I have now. Counting the days at this point...

    Unreliable garbage product

    • Written by Michael K from Brooklyn

    You will pay a lot of money for this product and it will *probably* work for a little while. Don't count on it working for long. I've had a few of them. For two of them, the HDMI adapter stopped working after a couple months.
