      Expensive Piece of Junk

      If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the access If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the accessory you've been dreaming of. I've tried different monitors. I've tried different HDMI cables. Nothing seems to help. This thing is incredibly frustrating to use. If you do decide to call support, expect to be on the phone for an hour only to be told "try plugging it into another port" on your single port usb-c macbook...

      WARNING - Bad Hardware

      This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own Super This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own SuperDrive, pre 2011) than don't work with this adaptor, but there are more that don't work - both for storage OR Time Machine (!). This is really bizarre since the other USB-C to USB-A adaptor WILL work, but since this adaptor doesn't supply power to your MacBook, it's not a long term solution. In the instances where the Multiport adaptor DOES work with an external hard drive, it can experience drastically reduced speeds and randomly unmount the drive. The straight USB adaptor, with the same drive, does not show these issues. I can't believe Apple put this on the market without 1) more rigorous testing and 2) with this serious an issue. Having an external hard drive work with your laptop is a pretty important requirement. Terrible, terrible piece of equipment. I was an Apple employee and have worked with Macs for decades. This issue was diagnosed with a genius at an Apple Store after we went through several Multiport and regular USB adaptors, and then followed up with additional testing at home. Apple should be ashamed.

Whenever trying to transfer files greater than a few gigabytes to my external USB 3.0 hard drive, I kept receiving an Error 36 message and the hard drive would disconnect. Apple swapped my adapter out three times, none of them worked, so I have since looked to other options.There are design flaws with this device and I would avoid this product if you will be transferring large files over USB 3.0.

      Charging is a problem

      I never had a complain but this dongle is the worst. It takes my Apple Watch 3+ hours to reach 100%, my iPhone X 4+ hours and my MacBook Pro 15 with touchbar I never had a complain but this dongle is the worst. It takes my Apple Watch 3+ hours to reach 100%, my iPhone X 4+ hours and my MacBook Pro 15 with touchbar so long to charge I gave up after 6 hours. It’s absolutely a displeasure for a 3k computer with a $70 dongle to be causing this much trouble...especially when there are 1k laptops that do not

      This should get ZERO stars

      Hey Apple - this doesn't work! Tried changing different ports and cables. Nothing. Over 200 1-star reviews—stop selling this!
