Can the USB-C ports on this be used interchangeably (reversed) and still provide full connectivity to the new Macbook?
I use and love my Rain Design mStand for ergonomic and thermal dissipation with my MBP. I have a dongle for the DisplayPort to hdmi for an external monitor. I have noticed that because of the mStand it seems to place vertical stress on the DisplayPort on the side of the MBP. The port bears the weight of the dongle and the cord that connects to it all day, every day.
I imagine this adapter was designed to have the single USB-C "tail" plug in to the port on the side of the MacBook and then have the various cords come out of the three ports on the opposite side to the various devices/power. I am wondering if it is possible to get a single USB-C cable that would run from the Macbook to the adapter and then have the adapter act as more of hub at the base of my external monitor. This setup would also improve cable management by keeping the clutter of three cables further away from where I would be connecting to the MacBook.

I have a macbook and bought the usb-c digital av multiport adaptor so i could attach an external monitor. I am looking to buy he monitor and am looking at a 4k (UHD) option but not sure about the best or compatible options.

Video output options are limited. See description.
As Apple offers this adapter for HDMI output, which is limited resolution, question one is can you then use a HDMI to DVI adapter to connect a DVI monitor? Secondly, the specs page says (in part) "Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 3840 by 2160 pixels on an external display, both at millions of colors" and later "Native DisplayPort 1.2 video output" So that would support this resolution, at unknown refresh rate, but how? Will there be another forthcoming USB-C to mini DisplayPort adapter that could then be re-adapted to Dual-Link DVI or connected to a supported UHD display?

Will this adapter allow me successfully display a late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro (HDMI output) on a LG UltraFine 4K monitor (USB-C input)?
I have the new LG UltraFine 4K display that includes only USB-C input. Can I use this adapter to convert the HDMI output from the MacBook to the DisplayPort Alt-Mode USB-C connection on the 4K monitor? Or do I need to convert USB-C to DisplayPort 1.2 to successfully connect the MacBook?

Can this be daisy chained to get multiple HDMI monitors?
I figure this is a competitor to the microsoft surface products. The surface pro 3 paired with its docking station produces two mini-display ports for two external monitors. Does the new macbook have the capability to daisy chain two of these dongles together to get two external monitors via HDMI/VGA?

Can this hdmi extend in addition to mirroring?
The description here only says it can mirror. Most other hdmi adaptors from apple says it can both mirror and extend to the external display. Does it mean this adaptor can only mirror and not extend to an ext display?

Does the USB port pass through the DisplaPort signal?
USB-A to to DisplayPort adapter cables are now available, but the only thing standing in the way of using a mix of third-party solutions to connect the new USB-C Macbook to a DisplayPort external display is the lack of a splitter cable. In other words, you can connect to USB-A devices and DisplayPort-enabled displays from the single USB-C port, but you can't charge the laptop at the same time. If this accessory passes-through the DisplayPort signal to the USB-A port, then the Startech USB-A to DisplayPort adapter cable would enable simultaneous external display and charging.
