      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.

      Too expensive

      I know most people hate the fact that this is an unnecessary accessory that Apple is making people to buy, I hate that too. too much money and not universal wit I know most people hate the fact that this is an unnecessary accessory that Apple is making people to buy, I hate that too. too much money and not universal with other devices, but the quality is good and it does solve the problem, but I wish it was cheaper since we all mac users gonna end up having it!

      I'm using this to plug in my WD 4 TB backup drive to my 2017 iMac. It works. What more can I say? Plugged in easily to the back of the computer in the appropr I'm using this to plug in my WD 4 TB backup drive to my 2017 iMac. It works. What more can I say? Plugged in easily to the back of the computer in the appropriate slot. The USB cable from the drive slipped right in and now Time Machine is humming right along. Good deal at $19.
