      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.

      So terrible it makes me want to bin my MacBook Pro.

      Buy this if you think you'd enjoy paying top dollar for a bulky, unreliable adapter that makes your monitor blink off and on constantly. Seriously, that thi Buy this if you think you'd enjoy paying top dollar for a bulky, unreliable adapter that makes your monitor blink off and on constantly. Seriously, that this is such a common complaint suggests that absolutely zero QA was done on this thing. Terrible.

      Works better than anything

      I have tried other brands but this one works the best. Ridiculous that this has a low review. It will send signals via HDMI regardless of version (surprise the I have tried other brands but this one works the best. Ridiculous that this has a low review.

      Same problem as everyone else

      After reading Best Buy reviews I decided to purchase this. Should've read the Apple reviews also, which I usually do. Flickering screen both on my brand new Mac After reading Best Buy reviews I decided to purchase this. Should've read the Apple reviews also, which I usually do. Flickering screen both on my brand new MacBook Pro, as well as the external display I was connecting to via HDMI. Fortunately the local Apple Store was incredibly helpful as they always are, and not only tried to solution seek with me but also offered a refund immediately. I have the latest software, I have a 5 day old MacBook Pro, so neither of those were the issue. With so many reviews about flickering screens you would hope Apple would correct the issue. Maybe next time. Good thing I love all Apple products now otherwise I'd be even more disappointed.
