    The USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter lets you connect your USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) enabled Mac to a VGA display, while also connecting a standard USB device and a USB-C charging cable.

    The USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter allows you to mirror your Mac display to your VGA-enabled TV or display in up to 1080p HD. It also outputs video content like movies and captured video. Simply connect the adapter to a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port on your Mac and then to your TV or projector via a VGA cable (sold separately).

    Use the standard USB port to connect devices such as your flash drive or camera or a USB cable for syncing and charging your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. You can also connect a charging cable to the USB-C port to charge your Mac.

For some currently unknown reason, the video on an external monitor glitches periodically to a low resolution and the only way to reset it is to change the resolution to some other value and then back to best for monitor setting. I have found it best to not use this adapter with external USB drives of any kind. Sometimes the drive decides to unmount in the middle of a read or write operation--Not good for data integrity or drive performance. The biggest negative is that there are no documented alternatives that do not have similar poor reviews. I guess this line of netbooks, oh, sorry, premium Apple notebooks with USB-C really isn't meant to be used with any external peripherals ... other than a charger and a set of ... headphones ...

      Useless since last update

      Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware update -- unless you're ready to reboot at least once a day: it sure works, for a few hours, and then the LED of your drive lights up, you hear the drive spin (if that kind of drive) but it no longer mounts, until you reboot. C'mon, what is this? Not even worth a single star...

I do professional development in schools, so I have used a variety of projectors, and no matter what brand of projector is connected, the screen is tinted green. I bought a 3rd party VGA adapter that works fine, so I wonder if there is a design or quality issue with the Apple adapter.

      Doesn't work

      It simply doesn't work. it'll ask you to update the software nearly every time you plug in it. And yet it still fails to work most of the time. Half the tim It simply doesn't work. it'll ask you to update the software nearly every time you plug in it. And yet it still fails to work most of the time. Half the time it doesn't recognize my camera, so I need to switch to use the stand-alone dongle.
