      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.

      Low Quality, High Price

      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 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

      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 MacBoo 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.
