      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.

Purchased the adapter on August 27th, 2017 and the USB port is currently not working on September 19th, 2017. It is frustrating when I cannot connect my printer to print documents, charge iPhone and charge Magic Mouse when I am on the go.

      USB works for 5 minutes then it doesn't

      I bough this for the USB functionality, and when I copy stuff from mac into pen drive, it works for a moment then I get that the pen drive was disconnected but I bough this for the USB functionality, and when I copy stuff from mac into pen drive, it works for a moment then I get that the pen drive was disconnected but it wasn't! it happens consistantly. Now when I connect an external harddrive, it happens the same, even If I'm not doing any write, it suddenly disconnects itself and I have to wait a couple of minutes before I can try again, just to see it happen again. USB not working.
