    Low Quality, High Price

    • Written by Allie H from Houston

    I bought this product with my new MacBook Pro less than a month ago and had absolutely no issues. It worked wonderfully and responded without fail. However, one time I was using it and my laptop slipped off of an ottoman, falling a measly 1.5 feet (at most) onto a carpeted surface. The product now fails to function. While I understand that its functionality has been affected due to my own carelessness, the fact that such a minor fall can cause irreparable damage is baffling to me for a modern product. In conjunction with its staggering price, I find it difficult to justify a purchase when there are hardier, more cost-effective, and more multi-functional adaptors on the market.

    VERY limited use - DO NOT BUY

    • Written by Mike S from Columbus

    I have been an Apple proponent for many years, and this is probably the worst adapter I have ever had. For me, the HDMI works fine when plugged into the MacBook Air. What doesn't work is the USB hard drive that I want to use for Time Machine. It was only in the reviews section that I discover that not all USB devices are supported. Apple really should disclose this information. Now I have an adapter that I can't return, and it is an expensive waste of money for the functionality it provides.

    Now I'm worried

    • Written by Marco Tulio G from Ribeirão Preto

    My wife traveled to Miami yesterday, and I asked her to go to an Apple store to buy a Mac Pro 15 "and also some adapters for me to connect my monitor, my external HDD, flash drives and card readers, but I'm getting very worried with the amount of complaints about these adapters that Apple sells, I never thought that Apple, the leading company in launching new technologies, was to sell products that do not work, is really very worrying the disregard of its consumers.

    Keep your packaging!

    • Written by Anthony T from Austin

    Or you can't return this complete piece of junk. It barely works from the word go. The flickering is absurd for the HDMI which is the only reason you have this thing. That's when it feels like working at all. Went to someone else and bought a something for half the price that works flawlessly. Go buy a dock. Go buy anything else besides this.

    Can't run 1440p

    • Written by Benjamin N from Aarhus N

    I tried to connect several different 1440p monitors simply didn't work. Turning the resolution down to 1080p works but is horrible. Got a new replacement still didn't work. Ended up getting an equivalent dongle from Satechi which just works no problems.

    Suddenly doesn't work anymore

    • Written by Lin C from 高雄市

    I bought this adapter after I got my 2016 15' MacBook Pro. At the beginning it worked just fine. But after a few months when I had a really important presentation, the HDMI port on the adapter just didn't work anymore. When it was connect to the projector, the projector started to glitch and show nothing. It was really embarrassing at that moment that I needed to borrow another adapter from other to finish my presentation. Because I don't really use it that much, I'm pretty sure until that point I only use the adapter for probably less than twenty times. After that, the USB port on the adapter starts to fail too. My Mac often shows the message "disk not ejected properly" when I connect my thumb drive with the adapter. Apple is really overcharging this adapter, because it is not even stable to use.

    Don't Buy, Doesn't Work

    • Written by Lance C from San Diego

    I bought this because I use a secondary monitor at work. Every single time I wake up my laptop in the morning to start working, this adapter does not recognize my secondary monitor that is plugged into it. I have to manually disconnect and reconnect the HDMI port from the adapter to get it to recognize my monitor. EPIC FAIL Apple. Let me save you some time, anguish, and money and tell you to go buy the Mokin 6 in 1 USB C to HDMI Adapter from Amazon instead. Here's the title of the product on Amazon if you're smarter than me: "USB C HDMI Adapter for MacBook Pro 2018/2017/2016, 6 in 1 USB-C to HDMI Output, Sd+Microsd Card Reader and 2-Ports USB 3.0 with USB-C Power Pass-Through Port (USB-C to 2USB+SD/TF+HDMI+PD)".

    Doesn't really support 4K

    • Written by Travis W from Beaufort

    This device only supports 4K at 30Hz instead of the full 60 your 4K display probably supports. It's inexplicable that Apple would ship this thing at 30Hz, but here we are.

    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

    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.

    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

    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
