      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.

      Great!

      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 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

      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 ju 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!

      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 o 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
