    Not Good

    I use Logic. A lot. I never had any issues with latency or distortion when plugging into an interface. Now, since recently getting a new Macbook, which required a USB to USB-C adapter I am having major latency and distortion issues.

    I will be trying Amazon's direct USB to USB-C cable to replace the dongle that Mac makes. Fingers crossed that makes my very expensive Apple device work properly. Why Apple doesn't make a USB to USB-C cable? Dunno.

    Does exactly what it's supposed to do.

    I really don’t understand all the complaints about this dongle. The elegance of having only USB-C ports is that (1) all cables (power, peripherals, etc.) will ONLY connect via USB-C, so you will NEVER have to worry about whether or not you have the right cable. All the cables will be right! The only cable left to switch over is the Lightning port, which really looks too much like USB-C anyway and really NEEDS to switch to USB-C. (2) The USB-C adapter, like the Lightning adapter, works the same right side up or upside down. In other words, unlike the old USB adapters, it doesn't matter which way you plug it in...it will always work. This is obviously SO MUCH BETTER than the old USB, not even accounting for how much more bandwidth and power it can handle, that it really doesn't make sense to have anything but USB-C.

    So, for all the whiners out there complaining about carrying around too many dongles, here's a suggestion: buy one of these adapters for every USB peripheral you own and simply leave the dongle plugged into the cable. Now, it's just an extension of that USB cable you already own. But now your cable is a few cm longer. Oh, and if the $19 x the number of peripherals you own is going to break the bank, maybe you're buying the wrong brand of computer in the first place. If you spend $2,000 plus on a laptop, then another $100 or so in dongles shouldn't be stressing you out so much.

    For those thinking about buying this...if you think you need it, then yes, you need it. Just buy it and know that you’ll have the Apple brand dongle which is meant to work with your Apple brand computer.

    Very Disappointed

    I bought a Macbook pro 15 touch bar computer in the USA and bought the USB adapter at the same time...when I returned to France, I bought another adapter for good measure only to discover, today, (two months later) that neither of them fit with whatever ordinary USB I try to use. Now what? I'll have to try a third party producer? Clearly, including a USB-C in the design of the computer forces users to buy the adapters. That's bad enough, but if they don't work?

    It's Okay For Transferring But That's It

    I just bought the new MacBook Pro "15 a couple days ago and I bought this adapter. I was able to transfer everything I had on my USB flash drives BUT my mouse which is USB will not fit and neither will my iPhone 6s Plus, iPod or iPad. I'm going to be returning this.

    Works perfect

    I bought 2 of these to go with my new 13" Macbook Pro. Because of the negative reviews here, I had some trepidation. So, I took my laptop along with an external HD that I wanted to use it with to the Apple store to test this adapter before buying. At first, the salesperson at the Apple store wanted me to purchase them before I could try them to see if there was any problems. But shortly decided that it would just be easier to go ahead and check them right away. They both worked perfectly the first time and of course I purchased them on the spot. I brought them home and tried them also with a thumbdrive and had the same result. Now I can have 2 external drives connected at the same time and can transfer between the drives if I need to. Lesson learned. Don't always believe the negative reviews. Try it and decide for yourself.

    Very good

    The accessories I use often with very high durability. I have a set of accessories including charger cable and adapter used to 4 years now and still running well. Only the peeling cable is peeling but still running well. good����

    Works Perfectly - I've never had an issue with it

    I have never had an issue with this adapter and I own 2 of them. I am almost positive that most, if not all, of these 1 and 2 star reviews below (or above? I didn't look to see how reviews were sorted before writing this... maybe I should do that now ... eh, that would mean I would have to copy all of this and paste it back - too much work) were written either by competing 3rd-party sellers or by consumers that have some kind of vendetta against Apple. If you'll notice, all accessories like these, that are also made and sold by 3rd-party companies, have awful reviews, and all of the reviews are very similar: the titles are all very creative (::sarcastic brow raise::) with things like "AWFUL", "Doesn't work, GARBAGE", "Piece of Junk!", "DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!" etc. I'm sure that none of it is genuine. This is not to say that no consumer is dissatisfied with their product, but it is highly unlikely that it is this common and with almost all of Apple's products.

    it won't fit....

    Yesterday I got my new wireless mouse with USB receiver. But I forgot my Macbook Pro only have USB C ports. So I went to one of the Apple Store in town and bought this adapter. Eventually, the USB head for my wireless mouse has been torn apart by this adapter, I could not pull out whole usb head! I used tweezer to pull the rest out. And I tried to connect my iPhone to the computer using this adapter, and found that the adapter won't work anymore....... Wasted so much time!

    Does what it's promised to.

    Like anyone I'm not really glad that my MacBook comes with a single port--or the fact that it's a NON standard type of port that requires adapters if I want to use it for anything I own, even my iPhone X connecter. HOWEVER, that shouldn't and doesn't reflect my review of this adapter. It worked perfectly as soon as I took it out of the packaging, it was quick, not fussy at all! I'm genuinely surprised at all the negative reviews. This cord works fine. Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews.

    Works on some USB items but not a MIDI, USB powered keyboard

    Works okay on standard non-powered devices like USB sticks but the MacBook Pro fails to recognise a Korg MIDI keyboard when connected via this adapter.

    Difficult to connect to iPhone 6 charger

    This charger was difficult to connect with my daughter's iPhone 6S Charger. I found an Amazon adapter for $6. This one is going back.

    Can't believe I had to buy this

    What a rip off that this is needed. My macbook pro was plenty expensive enough without needing to buy an attachment to take just about every device on the market. There are four ports on the computer, surely one of them could have been for the universal type of the last decade or more! The adapter is going to be annoying to keep track of no doubt.

    The USB Side Won't Fit

    Bought it in the Apple store while picking up my MacbookPro 15", and the USB side won't fit my wireless mouse's USB, nor will this fit my android charging cable's USB. Why do they sell a completely unusable adapter in the store? I thought I may have to just wiggle it or push it for it to work, but both did not work. Returning immediately.

    Terrible QC - Most are defective and apple don't care

    I've purchased at least 8 of these things for connecting my hdmi monitors to the lap top. All but one of them have gone defective in less than a year, three of them were bad right out of the box, and another 3 in less than 2 months (each).

    Unfortunately Apple's generous return policy says there's a two week window in which they will stand behind this product actually functioning. After that you're going to have to buy another one.

    Mechanically tight fit for the USB plugs, but otherwise work fine

    I bought several of these for use with my MacBook Pro. My mouse and external SSD each have their own and so I never bothered to disconnect their adapters. Having read the negative reviews I immediately tried disconnecting the adapters and found that they were much tighter than I recalled. Since I never remove them from their individual accessories it is not a problem for me, but trying to use them as general purpose adapters would be difficult. For dedicated usage they work fine, however.

    Elegant style no more, clutter is the new Apple

    If you're going to make me use an adapter to connect anything with my computer, you should at least give me an elegant solution. Instead you make me pay for a 5" piece of easily losable cord. A 180˚ turn from Apple's initial elegant simplicity.

    Not bad

    I'm actually fine with the sacrifice of USB-3 ports and other ports, since this isn't a bad product, There are lots of new products that are being made that have Thunderbolt-3 ports, and for anything that has a USB, just simply get an adapter, It also is a lot stronger then an iPhone or iPad charger since it's shorter, so it won't get damaged easily
