      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.

      Should be included.

      Simply put, this is a $25 inconvenience fee.

I have no problem with USB C, but if you're going to drop a port that's still very widely used, at least throw the adapter in as part of the laptop (just like what you did with the headphone adapter with the iPhone). There's nothing wrong with this product. But $25 for something that absolutely should've been included doesn't deserve anything other than a 1 star review.

      Good, but one problem

      This product does everything it is supposed to do. It is durable, and I don't see it breaking any time soon. In fact it is too durable, that is the problem. The This product does everything it is supposed to do. It is durable, and I don't see it breaking any time soon. In fact it is too durable, that is the problem. The USB-A port holds on to whatever you plugged in very tightly, so if you are using a USB- Mouse like I am, it is very difficult to take out the mouse adapter from the port. Otherwise, good product.

      Does what it says on the box.

      It works as it should; my USB devices connect to my MacBook Pro without issue, and my USB3 HDD seems to transfer files at a brisker pace than my old 2009 MacBoo It works as it should; my USB devices connect to my MacBook Pro without issue, and my USB3 HDD seems to transfer files at a brisker pace than my old 2009 MacBook. In all, it's a fairly decent adapter.
