    Works well, but not for your wallet.

    It works as intended, so if you really need an adapter, I'd pick up this one. Way too expensive, though.

    Waste of money

    Never been a Apple fan. I have the Mac book Pro for school purposes and unfortunately I have the 2017 model. I have no choice but to purchase this adapter. Lost it in 2 days. The dongle was so loose I was never able to copy any big content into my external hard drive. I purchased a third-party plug and it works flawlessly. Like always Apple has disappointed me with a garbage like product. Thanks Apple!

    Flash drives won't fit?

    I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. My new MacBook Pro (for which I bought allllll the connections) is fine, but the adapter for USB-C to USB doesn't fit my flash drives. It's as though the adapter is shaped incorrectly to insert a USB...too big in some ways and too small in others. I've tried several drives and I feel as though I've missed something super basic. It means that I don't have a hard copy of my upcoming presentation, which is seriously annoying, but it's also just bizarre. This is my first proper Mac computer, so maybe a rookie error, but I'm definitely frustrated and perplexed.

    Buy another adapter

    This destroyed my Razer Manowar USB plug. There is a metal part inside of this that makes the USB hold tight, I've never seen such a thing on USB 3.0 connectors and at first I thought it could be good, but after using it for a week my USB connector got stuck inside the adapter. Now my headset is broken as well as the adapter. If this ever happens again I'm suing Apple for making a computer that needs adapters for everything and for selling adapters that destroy other components.

    only reason to buy this is because apple phased out the input option that works.

    Very useful adapter (and it is USB 3/2/1 compatible)

    Note; This is a review of the actual product, not a commentary about the price or whether Apple should fit use USB C to their latest laptops, or include the adapter "in the box".

    One thing I wondered when deciding to buy this product or not, was if it was USB3 compatible or not. Answer; YES, it is. It has standard dual connectors in the socket that will allow it to connect USB3 devices at full speed as well USB2/1 devices.

    There were also some reviews that commented about the connector being too tight. I don't know if they've changed the design but mine is snug without being too tight. It will snugly hold any USB3 device/cable you plug into it, but you can pull it out as needed.

    So far it has connected to all the standard USB devices I have tested it on. I find it very useful and well worth the money.

    USB-C to USB Adapter

    All these reviews are far to lite on the criticism....

    This product is absolute GARBAGE.

    To be an industry leader in tech and having this many complaints about the simplest product, is insanity. This is a disgrace.
    Steve Jobs (The brain behind the operation) was highly focused on detail and ever since his passing, Apple has done everything but that!

    Works well for my application

    Bought it to use my WASD (wired) mechanical keyboard with my 2017 MBP (which has no USB A port) when coding at home. Works like a champ. Quite frankly, I haven't tested a USB 3 flash drive with it although I've seen lots of people claiming this Apple USB-C to USB Adapter doesn't play well with USB 3 flash drives. My go-to external storage for the MBP is a portable Glyph Atom RAID SSD which connects directly to a USB-C port. Not as tiny as a flash drive but still very small, 2TB of storage and transfer rates exceeding 800 MB/s which is very handy when coding/testing.

    WAY too tight!

    Both the Apple Store genius and I tried 2 different thumb drives and could not connect them. I also tried an external drive to no avail. Ended up returning it and buying a Belkin, which fit easily and perfectly.

    For those who complain about the need for too many wires and adapters:
    If you choose the right type of adapter, you will only need one or two things, no matter what sort of devices you'd like to connect to your Mac. Camera, Watch, Flash devices, charging things from standard devices, to all your Apple products...literally you will need 2 adaptors and only TWO...Max!!...Really!!

    I pair this one, (USB-C to USB Adapter), with "Belkin Micro-USB to USB Cable with Lightning Adapter". Once you pair these two, you literally have all you will need to charge your phone, use flash drives, charge your watch, your standard Not-Apple devices that you will ever need to charge or connect to your Mac Book Pro, even your e-vape.
    Any and all are covered and connected and covered with these two adapters... Seriously!!

    Even my old Samsung laptop needed more adapters than these to charge my devices.
    I just carry these 2 with me, anywhere I go and keep an extra set in my purse...just in case i need to charge my phone in the car...(oh yeah, it also works with your car charger).

    Great stuff!!!

    Should be included.

    Simply put, this is a $25 inconvenience fee. I have no problem with USB C, but if you're going to drop a port that's still very widely used, at least throw the adapter in as part of the laptop (just like what you did with the headphone adapter with the iPhone).

    There's nothing wrong with this product. But $25 for something that absolutely should've been included doesn't deserve anything other than a 1 star review.

    Good, but one problem

    This product does everything it is supposed to do. It is durable, and I don't see it breaking any time soon. In fact it is too durable, that is the problem. The USB-A port holds on to whatever you plugged in very tightly, so if you are using a USB- Mouse like I am, it is very difficult to take out the mouse adapter from the port. Otherwise, good product.

    Does what it says on the box.

    It works as it should; my USB devices connect to my MacBook Pro without issue, and my USB3 HDD seems to transfer files at a brisker pace than my old 2009 MacBook. In all, it's a fairly decent adapter.

    Pointless. Overpriced.

    So after purchasing a very pricey MacBook it is completely ridiculous that you should have to purchase this as well... to rub more salt in to the wound mine has stopped working just after a month of use and I really resent having to purchase another one.

    Way overpriced

    For a necessity that should come with the computer it is beyond overpriced. Get it through amazon!

    Too expensive

    I know most people hate the fact that this is an unnecessary accessory that Apple is making people to buy, I hate that too. too much money and not universal with other devices, but the quality is good and it does solve the problem, but I wish it was cheaper since we all mac users gonna end up having it!

    Works great!

    I'm using this to plug in my WD 4 TB backup drive to my 2017 iMac. It works. What more can I say? Plugged in easily to the back of the computer in the appropriate slot. The USB cable from the drive slipped right in and now Time Machine is humming right along. Good deal at $19.
