    This adapter allows you to mirror your MacBook or MacBook Pro display to your HDMI-enabled TV or display in up to 1080p at 60Hz or UHD (3840x2160) at 30Hz. It also outputs video content like films and captured video. Simply connect the adapter to the USB-C port on your MacBook or any of the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports on your MacBook Pro and then to your TV or projector via an HDMI cable (sold separately).

      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.

      bulky and expensive

      Although it works fine it is bulky and the design ill considered, and rather more expensive than an Apple TV this rather essential item allows you to connect a Although it works fine it is bulky and the design ill considered, and rather more expensive than an Apple TV this rather essential item allows you to connect a USB 3 to your MacBook, but it's terribly bulky especially when you only want to connect a USB device for a few minutes to swap files. This slightly defeats the wonder of having such a slim package as the wonderful MacBook. Hopefully they will get around to doing a USB 3 stick to USB C sometime soon... meanwhile us early adopters feel foolish

      Makes My Monitor Flicker

      I spent days trying to figure out through Apple and Samsung what was wrong with my Oct. 2016 MacBook Pro and my new Samsung UHD monitor. that was flickering. Ap I spent days trying to figure out through Apple and Samsung what was wrong with my Oct. 2016 MacBook Pro and my new Samsung UHD monitor. that was flickering. Apple pushed me back to Samsung saying it was a compatibility issue. I specifically asked about this adapter that I was using. Went to Samsung and they said it was the cord, adapter or graphics card. IT'S THE ADAPTER!!!!!!!!!

      Works perfect out of the box

      I had to install the firmware update that came up automatically as soon as I plugged in the Adapter. To be honest, I don't understand the bad reviews this adapt I had to install the firmware update that came up automatically as soon as I plugged in the Adapter. To be honest, I don't understand the bad reviews this adapter has as it works perfect with my 4K Dell 2715Q monitor over HDMI, my wireless Logitech Mouse and External Hard Drive. I have an additional USB Hub attached. Works like a charm.
