  • Overview

    The USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter lets you connect your MacBook with USB-C port or MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports to a VGA display, while also connecting a standard USB device and a USB-C charging cable.

    The USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter allows you to mirror your MacBook or MacBook Pro display to your VGA-enabled TV or display in up to 1080p HD. It also outputs video content like movies and captured video. Simply connect the adapter to the USB-C port on your MacBook or any Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port on your MacBook Pro and then to your TV or projector via a VGA cable (sold separately).

    Use the standard USB port to connect devices such as your flash drive or camera or a USB cable for syncing and charging your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. You can also connect a charging cable to the USB-C port to charge your MacBook or MacBook Pro.

    Note: The Apple USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter is not compatible with the G-Tech G-DRIVE mobile USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Apple part number HF4F2VC/A).

For some currently unknown reason, the video on an external monitor glitches periodically to a low resolution and the only way to reset it is to change the resolution to some other value and then back to best for monitor setting. I have found it best to not use this adapter with external USB drives of any kind. Sometimes the drive decides to unmount in the middle of a read or write operation--Not good for data integrity or drive performance. The biggest negative is that there are no documented alternatives that do not have similar poor reviews. I guess this line of netbooks, oh, sorry, premium Apple notebooks with USB-C really isn't meant to be used with any external peripherals ... other than a charger and a set of ... headphones ...

      Useless since last update

      Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware update -- unless you're ready to reboot at least once a day: it sure works, for a few hours, and then the LED of your drive lights up, you hear the drive spin (if that kind of drive) but it no longer mounts, until you reboot. C'mon, what is this? Not even worth a single star...

      Wouldn't recommend

      I tried to use this dongle (well two of them), transferring images (I'm a professional photographer), from a LaCie External HD to a G Drive 10 GB external HD vi I tried to use this dongle (well two of them), transferring images (I'm a professional photographer), from a LaCie External HD to a G Drive 10 GB external HD via Chronosync software that makes the transfer pretty simple along w regular updates. This was on a brand new fully maxed out Macbook Pro 15". I received error message after error message w the laptop ejecting the HD of the receiving end within minutes. After conversations w Apple, G Technology and Chronosync we narrowed it down to the dongles. I bought two new single USB-C to USB adapters a few days ago at the Apple Store and they worked perfectly on my old laptop. I began the second back up of the 10GB G Drive to the 16GB G-Speed Q but then had run out of time today and had to put on pause. I just plugged them in again and they're working perfectly. So...Make note of this for others. Those Multi-port dongles don't work w Chronosync and perhaps with other 3rd party applications. *Buyer Beware

      USB C Port Only Charges, Does Not Transfer Data

      I found out the hard way that this adapter does not transfer data over the USB C port - it only charges. I was going to use the adapter to connect my monitor, e I found out the hard way that this adapter does not transfer data over the USB C port - it only charges. I was going to use the adapter to connect my monitor, external hard drive, and audio interface to my new MacBook Pro for an all-in-one solution. It connects to the monitor via VGA, and connects to my hard drive via standard USB. But the USB C port can ONLY be used as a charging port. All is not lost, for I plug in my audio interface into another USB C port, but it would be super handy to plug in all my peripherals into one adapter.

      Didn't last very long

Yesterday, the VGA port stopped working for no apparent reas I'm a teacher and use this adapter in my classroom every day to connect to printer/power/projector. Yesterday, the VGA port stopped working for no apparent reason. It hasn't been damaged in any way. It never even leaves my desk. The power port and USB still work. But for this price, it should be good enough quality to last more than a year or two. I've also had a charger just stop working within that time period, and the keyboard on my MacBook is constantly giving me problems. In all the years I've used Apple products, this is the first product I've hated. There's very little about the new MacBook and accessories that I could recommend.
