      So Much Extra Stuff to keep track of

      Unlike the older versions of MacBook Pro, the late 2016 version, sleek, and lightweight, and neat looking, has sacrificed practicality for superficial appearanc Unlike the older versions of MacBook Pro, the late 2016 version, sleek, and lightweight, and neat looking, has sacrificed practicality for superficial appearance. Instead of having the multiple ports that made the older versions of MBP so useful, you now have to carry around extra paraphernalia like this to be able to interface with all the other stuff that most people use - flash drives, and phones in need of charging and a super drive to back up your files. You need that more often now, because the higher price tag on the MBP means less storage space. So in order to have even half the practicality of previous MBP's, you have to keep track of this adapter, and the lightning cords, and the non-mag-safe power adapter, and now I have to find the means of uploading photos from memory cards, because there isn't any kind of adapter for that, yet. So buy this piece of junk, and make sure you don't lose track of it and the dozen other pieces you need in the name of sleekness of design, and maximizing profits.

      Works....sometimes

      Works when I plug in my USB receiver for an external mouse. Will not read a USB flash drive so pretty worthless for any type of data transfer.

      So Frustrated

      I just bought a new Mac computer and read that I needed an adapter for things like my Wacom drawing pad and my external hard drive. So I purchased this adapter. I just bought a new Mac computer and read that I needed an adapter for things like my Wacom drawing pad and my external hard drive. So I purchased this adapter. I tried plugging it in and the pad lights up like it's working but will not work, the same with my external hard rive. So disappointed and actually not sure what the solution is here.

      It worked 5 times

      I bought this with my new MacBook Pro. It worked 5 times before it was dead. Of those five times it was a bit slow to connect connected devices. I don`t f I bought this with my new MacBook Pro.

      Disappointing

      Totally willing to endure the minor inconvenience of not being able to connect any peripherals without a dongle in the name of ushering in superior technology, Totally willing to endure the minor inconvenience of not being able to connect any peripherals without a dongle in the name of ushering in superior technology, but this adapter was dead on arrival. Based on reviews, it seems like this isn't an isolated incident. Very disappointing experience with a brand that used to surprise and delight with every purchase. This should be a simple thing to get right, and it's an insult to consumers to charge so much for something of such poor quality.
