    Don't buy it unless you have no other choice...

    • Written by Barry H from Matthews

    If you can get an aftermarket version, do it. It works great, when it works.... Sometimes I get "no signal" and sometimes the monitor just flashes on and off for a bit. I need the multiport function for a VGA monitor and USB for the wireless keyboard and mouse, but haven't used the additional USB-C port it provides.

    Didn't last very long

    • Written by Robert S from Fort Lauderdale

    I'm a teacher and use this adapter in my classroom every day to connect to printer/power/projector. Yesterday, the VGA port stopped working for no apparent reason. It hasn't been damaged in any way. It never even leaves my desk. The power port and USB still work. But for this price, it should be good enough quality to last more than a year or two. I've also had a charger just stop working within that time period, and the keyboard on my MacBook is constantly giving me problems. In all the years I've used Apple products, this is the first product I've hated. There's very little about the new MacBook and accessories that I could recommend.

    Poor!

    • Written by Colin P from Liverpool

    Bought this genuine product after having tried a cheaper alternative that didn't work well with many monitors; unfortunately this is not much better!

    I needed it to perform with a VGA projector this morning to show a PowerPoint presentation to a client and the screen kept going black then coming back on. It's done this before with other devices and when in use the image doesn't always fill the connected screen correctly when using in second monitor, rather than mirrored mode (mirrored is worse as the adaptor often defaults devices to 800x 600!

    Yes, before someone asks I'm fully up to date with drivers etc. and the same screens and devices all work seamlessly with my old MacBook Air and apple VGA adaptors.
    Yes I've tried various settings to correct issues without success.

    This is a major problem as with a new MacBook I've no other way of connecting screens and projectors that don't have a HDMI output.

    If Apple support read this I'd be happy to hear their views as to why this product appears so flawed, and how I can get these issues addressed given it is soooo expensive!
