      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.

      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.

      Does what it's supposed to do

      Kind of disturbed that the review people find most useful of this product is a commentary of the the 2016 MacBook Pro and NOT of the USB-C to USB-A adapter. As Kind of disturbed that the review people find most useful of this product is a commentary of the the 2016 MacBook Pro and NOT of the USB-C to USB-A adapter. As far as this review goes for the actual product....it does what it is supposed to do. I have used it to connect 2 crummy keyboards, 2 different mice, assorted thumb drives, and a Samsung t1 USB 3.1 external drive. I have even remote played a PS4 with the dual shock controller plugged into this adapter. It works for what it is supposd to do. Some have mentioned that it will not connect to certain items. We are talking about a USB port here. Odds are if it won't connect, the item is broken, requires strange drivers, or is improperly formatted. I have had no issues connecting yet, will update if I connect something that won't work.
