      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.

      HDMI keeps cutting out

      Expensive, and will not work properly. HDMI output keeps cutting out.

      Working perfectly. 3-4 weeks...

      Like many other reviews here, I was pretty skeptical of this product, and the price. I have a 2017 iMac (Sierra), and my sole need this product needed to fi Like many other reviews here, I was pretty skeptical of this product, and the price. I have a 2017 iMac (Sierra), and my sole need this product needed to fill was connecting my Wacom Cintiq 13HD (HDMI input). I initially plugged only the Adapter in, with nothing else connected. An option to update the Adapter popped up, which I went ahead and did. I restarted with the Cintiq hooked up, and after the usual setup, everything was entirely functional, with no latency or problems whatsoever. I rarely end up getting around to writing reviews, but after reading all of the negative ones here, I just had to come back to mention this product has actually been working perfectly as of the time of this writing.

      Fix for Blinking Problem

      This was a 1-star until I discovered this trick: 1) Connect to a monitor 2) Apple > Sleep 3) Then hit spacebar to wake, and log in. Result) No more blinking. This was a 1-star until I discovered this trick: 1) Connect to a monitor 2) Apple > Sleep 3) Then hit spacebar to wake, and log in. Result) No more blinking. This accessory along with a Mac is terrible at hot-swapping, but if I wake the computer up with it already connected, it hasn't caused me problems.

      C'mon Apple

My stuff has to work! I bought the USB-C HDMI adapter. I tried it on my TV at home before I hit the road. It worked. I also bought the USB-C VGA adapter. I tried it at home on my projector. It worked. I got on the road and the HDMI adapter did not work. Fortunately, the VGA adapter worked. My back-up after that was the exported Keynote to PowerPoint file that I would have had to run on a PC. C'mon Apple.
