    USB 2.0...in this decade?!

    • Written by Benjamin B from El Cerrito

    USB port is 2.0, HDMI connection is not bad but not perfect, and USB-C port is charge-only.

    Worthless piece of junk. What in the world were they thinking?

    Low Quality, High Price

    • Written by Allie H from Houston

    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

    • Written by Mike S from Columbus

    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.

    Now I'm worried

    • Written by Marco Tulio G from Ribeirão Preto

    My wife traveled to Miami yesterday, and I asked her to go to an Apple store to buy a Mac Pro 15 "and also some adapters for me to connect my monitor, my external HDD, flash drives and card readers, but I'm getting very worried with the amount of complaints about these adapters that Apple sells, I never thought that Apple, the leading company in launching new technologies, was to sell products that do not work, is really very worrying the disregard of its consumers.

    Keep your packaging!

    • Written by Anthony T from Austin

    Or you can't return this complete piece of junk. It barely works from the word go. The flickering is absurd for the HDMI which is the only reason you have this thing. That's when it feels like working at all. Went to someone else and bought a something for half the price that works flawlessly. Go buy a dock. Go buy anything else besides this.

    Can't run 1440p

    • Written by Benjamin N from Aarhus N

    I tried to connect several different 1440p monitors simply didn't work. Turning the resolution down to 1080p works but is horrible. Got a new replacement still didn't work. Ended up getting an equivalent dongle from Satechi which just works no problems.

    Suddenly doesn't work anymore

    • Written by Lin C from 高雄市

    I bought this adapter after I got my 2016 15' MacBook Pro. At the beginning it worked just fine. But after a few months when I had a really important presentation, the HDMI port on the adapter just didn't work anymore. When it was connect to the projector, the projector started to glitch and show nothing. It was really embarrassing at that moment that I needed to borrow another adapter from other to finish my presentation. Because I don't really use it that much, I'm pretty sure until that point I only use the adapter for probably less than twenty times. After that, the USB port on the adapter starts to fail too. My Mac often shows the message "disk not ejected properly" when I connect my thumb drive with the adapter. Apple is really overcharging this adapter, because it is not even stable to use.

    Don't Buy, Doesn't Work

    • Written by Lance C from San Diego

    I bought this because I use a secondary monitor at work. Every single time I wake up my laptop in the morning to start working, this adapter does not recognize my secondary monitor that is plugged into it. I have to manually disconnect and reconnect the HDMI port from the adapter to get it to recognize my monitor. EPIC FAIL Apple. Let me save you some time, anguish, and money and tell you to go buy the Mokin 6 in 1 USB C to HDMI Adapter from Amazon instead. Here's the title of the product on Amazon if you're smarter than me: "USB C HDMI Adapter for MacBook Pro 2018/2017/2016, 6 in 1 USB-C to HDMI Output, Sd+Microsd Card Reader and 2-Ports USB 3.0 with USB-C Power Pass-Through Port (USB-C to 2USB+SD/TF+HDMI+PD)".

    Doesn't really support 4K

    • Written by Travis W from Beaufort

    This device only supports 4K at 30Hz instead of the full 60 your 4K display probably supports. It's inexplicable that Apple would ship this thing at 30Hz, but here we are.

    BEWARE - only allows 60W of charging - not good for 15" MacBook Pro

    • Written by Kenneth R from San Francisco

    I use this adapter at my desk, to connect to another display via HDMI (works great for that display part). I have my power cord connected through the adapter to simplify connections to my laptop.

    I finally figured out why my laptop is charging so slowly at my desk - using this adapter limits the charging power to your 15" MacBook Pro!! I'm surprised this isn't discussed at all in the product overview or other reviews.

    Searching around I finally found this note in an article on support.apple.com, HT207806 "About the Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter" (review won't let me post the full URL):
    "This port delivers a maximum of 60W power, suitable for MacBook models and 13-inch MacBook Pro models. For the best charging performance on 15-inch MacBook Pro models, connect the power supply directly to your Mac, not through the adapter."

    Why make dongles that limit functionality? :-(

    Don’t even think about buying this adapter.

    • Written by Clemens V from Gramatneusiedl

    I bought this and it doesn’t work.
    iPad pro11 and testet it with several different displays.
    Don’t try your luck, save your money.

    I am just angry i didn’t read these comments before. They tell the whole story.

    I am quite amazed that apple dos not comment on this obvious product error. It is still recommended as compatible with iPad Pro 11.

    I am using apple for a long time now, and in the past if they said it works, it worked.

    Lasted for 48 hours

    • Written by Aidan M from Palm Beach Gardens

    I got the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter for my birthday, and I was so excited to use it to show my computer on my TV. I was having some trouble with other things on my computer, and when I finally got it to work, I plugged in the HDMI and it wouldn’t show up on the tv! It had shown up just minutes before, but now it simply didn’t work! My phone was also plugged into it, and it kept charging then not charging. I am so angry that it didn’t even work for 48 hours! I tried to find a solution, both online and by myself. I restarted my computer, phone, and turned off my TV. Nothing worked! I plugged everything back in, nothing! I searched online, no solution. I’m really angry at the poor, horrible quality of this product and wish I had never gotten it! I’m so angry right now!

    Do NOT Purchase

    • Written by Jonathan S from Ashburn

    The adapter does not work consistently. It has to be plugged and unplugged multiple times over before it may decide to work for the day.

    Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't

    • Written by Veronica Y from Austin

    I use my laptop in my office and the connection to the monitors is fine. Same thing when I connect to my TV at home.
    But I also travel a lot and give presentations, and then, this dongle only works about 65% of the time. It's great when it works, but extremely inconvenient when it doesn't, and I haven't been able to predict yet when it does and when it doesn't.

    I got this for my birthday and I use it almost everyday! Having the new MacBook Pro with only USB - C adapters was a bit annoying but receiving this adapter is awesome! I use it for hours on end watching from my computer to my television screen. It is very expensive, but apple has a great policy on their items. I prefer an Apple product then off brand, worth the money in that sense.

    Quite Astonishing Device TBH

    • Written by Seth L from Ralston

    It took me a few months of use to realize what this adapter is truly capable of and I feel a bit foolish. Fortunately it has never been a major concern, but just today I managed to reduce from using 3 ports on my mbp, to just 1 with this adapter. I am almost embarrassed to admit that it took me this long to realize the USB-C port is for charging the MacBook, but that made my day to find out. I now have my external T5 Samsung SSD, 1 of 2 external HDMI displays, and USB-C charging bundled into 1 port, leaving me with two more unused ports for additional connectivity. What an incredible device!

    Junk! DO NOT BUY!

    • Written by Louis U from Lakewood

    Apple, please explain to all of us how you decided to make computer with no HDMI output and only USB-C ports and yet the only adapter you sell to project HDMI output is JUNK! This is the most upsetting thing ever. I understand wanting to be at the leader in technology and I don't mind paying extra for accessories, but when your adapters don't work. This is beyond upsetting. I wish I can give it 0 stars

    Useful port options in a useless form

    • Written by Sarah K from Toronto

    The port options do exactly as they say. HDMI, USB, and the USB - C. Great. But its large, cumbersome, and most importantly, I cannot charge my iPad (10.5 pro) through the USB C port using all apple cords.
