    Does not support USB 3.0

    I got this for my new MacBookPro 15 inch 2017 model. These adapters will support connections to iPad and iPhones, but not USB 3.0 drives. The Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter will support USB 3.0 drives. So will third party adapters, including one I bought from Dell.

    flaky and overpriced

    Dongle often does not work with wacom tablet unless I restart the computer.... great news on an overpriced laptop that is no faster and has a shorter battery life than my 2013 Macbook Pro. Keep up the good work apple

    Disappointing Apple Product - Incredibly Slow

    This is not the Apple quality I expect from their products, and I am very disappointed in this purchase. Every time I plug in my USB using the adapter into my Mac, it takes around 1 to 2 minutes for the files page to actually load and show me what is on the USB. It then takes another 1 to 2 minutes for a file on the USB to open on my Mac. Whenever I go to save the document I am working on, the window freezes and it takes yet another 1 to 2 minutes for the file to save. The problem is not with my USB, because it is a new USB, and it works normally when I plug it into a PC directly. I do not recommend buying this.

    Does the job

    it does what it says. But really it's a disappointment how difficult it is to plug in a USB device with all these dongles. I believe an a better future where you plugin just one cable to get connected to all your devices (external harddrive, monitor, stereo and etc. but right now, the Thunderbolt 3 devices are just too expensive.

    USB too tight

    USB side too tight. Spoiled my pen drive while trying to take it out. Should have better quality for the price.

    Such a hassle... and doesn't even work properly

    This is pretty annoying. I have to carry around all the extra cords now. Worst part it, this only works half the time. Wish I had switched to the Lenovo Yoga instead of the Macbook Pro

    Cannot believe it only supports usb 2.0

    Apple is exploiting me. You should at least mention that this adapter only supports usb 2.0.

    Disappointed from Apple UBS to Jack Adaptor

    Third time I have to buy this product because it would break by pausing and skipping music tracks by itself.

    Angry at Apple

    Got the new Macbook and needed to transfer all my things from my USB external hard drive and phone. I tried to plug the USB cord in but it just wouldn't fit. I stuck another USB cord in and it was such a tight fit it ripped the head off. Absolutely furious that I not only had to buy this but it doesn't work with all USB 3.0; this is not OK, Apple!

    Adapter to use a USB

    This is a waste of time, resources, and functionality. Fashion over function is a fail on your part Apple. I have already spent a mini fortune on a pro lap top whats another $20, $40, $60, deep sighs.

    Piece of garbage

    I've kept this at the bottom of my laptop bag and used this thing like three times in the last 6 months. It's now stopped working completely.

    Absolute piece of garbage just like the new Macbook Pro. So over Apple.

    it is very difficult to plug in the USB port

    I am afraid to break this cable. I went to an apple story and even the sales representative faced difficulties to plug in my pen drive to the USB port. I will try once more, but I am afraid to break it. I will probably visit an apple story again to have this cable changed. It is not possible that this is so difficult to plug in a usb device.

    Doesn't read flash drives

    I expected from an Apple product at least to work flawlessly, but unfortunately this doesn't. I have Sandisk Ultra 3.0 flash drive that this adapter refuse to recognize. Very disappointed. I tried the same flash drive with the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter and it detected it and I was able to use the same flash. So the USB-C to USB adapter is not reliable. Could this be solved with the next MacOS update?

    No Problems

    Some have complained of an excessively tight fit. It certainly isn't loose, but I've had no trouble with mine. Worked fine with the flash drives and memory cards I've used with it. Seems well made. Only had a couple of weeks, but I'm quite happy with it.

    It works!

    I'm not sure why this has such a low rating. I've tried it with multiple hard drives and haven't had problems. I regularly back up 3-4GB of data from one hard drive to another and it works flawlessly and extremely fast. Stop whining, and rating the adapter low because you wanted USB-A forever. Do you guys still carry cassette players? Have tube TVs? Upgrade your cables to usb-c so you don't need dongles, and carry this for emergencies or store at home when backing up to old hard drives! Easy as that.

    Overpriced, inconvenient, should not be necessary

    $20 is $15 too much for this product. USB-C cables fall out of the sockets with the slightest nudge. Getting rid of regular USB was the worst of several blunders on the latest Macbook Pros (beautiful machines but infuriating). I lost one of these already. Thanks apple.

    cheap quality, just like new Macbook.


    I'm not surprised that y'all came up with some stupid ripoff like an adapter for my USB/HDMI devices, but I AM surprised when the ripoff stops working for no apparent reason. This has just begun to happen with another one of my USB-C adapters...

    I have an external hard drive, and literally months later, it starts improperly ejecting for no reason, interrupting my work. I found, that if you nudge the USB-C adapter even a little bit - a bump from a car ride will do - that it ejects anything its connected to, without fail. Which, as you all know, is really bad for the data stored inside it.

    I had to purchase a new one, not only to stop the nuisance of my work being interrupted every five minutes, but also to preserve my data.

    This product is a load of bs, but Apple forces us to buy it in order to use the new Macbook with all the other accessories we probably use with it. My Mac was a gift, otherwise I wouldn't have purchased.

    Apple, y'all are too much for this. At least make the ripoff products from good quality parts. At least hire someone with a decent hourly wage in our home country to craft these pointless devices. For real, it's not fair to your consumers, and you're just being greedy.

    Similar feedback for the iPhone 7. An attachment for an auxiliary input? Are you kidding me? In what world does that make any sense on a phone that also works as an mp3 player? You realize, that not everybody can afford, or wants, silly bluetooth earbuds that they're probably gonna lose in a few weeks anyway. I'll say it again: Greed.

    Hope this helps anyone looking to invest in quality technology rather than a shiny new Macbook.

    Not a true USB adapter

    Does not work with any flash drives I've tried nor with my Canon T4i USB connector.

    Way to go! This is the most ridiculous change Apple could have made. After spending over $2000 on a Mac book we now have to spend $75 plus tax to access the three USB-c ports and any external hardware. The cables are the same flimsy design that iPhone user have been complaining about for years.
