      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.

      Constant nagging for update

      Everytime I insert this adapter Mac OS X nags me to update it. So I go through the whole update process. I stop my work, go through the install, and restart. Th Everytime I insert this adapter Mac OS X nags me to update it. So I go through the whole update process. I stop my work, go through the install, and restart. Then Mac OS X nags me again, there is an update for the adapter. Apparently it isn't possible to get Apple to stop nagging me about updates I've already installed.

      Useless expensive junk

      Recently bought a new MacBook Pro, which I use at the side of my desk plugged in to three external monitors. At least I used to on my old MacBook. With this new Recently bought a new MacBook Pro, which I use at the side of my desk plugged in to three external monitors. At least I used to on my old MacBook. With this new one, suddenly I need MORE adapters, and this is the only option for plugging it in to my displays. Works less than half the time, usually just gives me a black screen and flashes on and off. Restarting the laptop occasionally works but usually not. Surprisingly low quality for something from Apple. Look in to third party alternatives that don't cost $80. This is just another white paperweight now.
