    cheap quality, just like new Macbook.

    Apple,

    I'm not surprised that y'all came up with some stupid ripoff like an adapter for my USB/HDMI devices, but I AM surprised when the ripoff stops working for no apparent reason. This has just begun to happen with another one of my USB-C adapters...

    I have an external hard drive, and literally months later, it starts improperly ejecting for no reason, interrupting my work. I found, that if you nudge the USB-C adapter even a little bit - a bump from a car ride will do - that it ejects anything its connected to, without fail. Which, as you all know, is really bad for the data stored inside it.

    I had to purchase a new one, not only to stop the nuisance of my work being interrupted every five minutes, but also to preserve my data.

    This product is a load of bs, but Apple forces us to buy it in order to use the new Macbook with all the other accessories we probably use with it. My Mac was a gift, otherwise I wouldn't have purchased.

    Apple, y'all are too much for this. At least make the ripoff products from good quality parts. At least hire someone with a decent hourly wage in our home country to craft these pointless devices. For real, it's not fair to your consumers, and you're just being greedy.

    Similar feedback for the iPhone 7. An attachment for an auxiliary input? Are you kidding me? In what world does that make any sense on a phone that also works as an mp3 player? You realize, that not everybody can afford, or wants, silly bluetooth earbuds that they're probably gonna lose in a few weeks anyway. I'll say it again: Greed.

    Hope this helps anyone looking to invest in quality technology rather than a shiny new Macbook.

    Best!

    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 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 find this product worthy the Apple name.

    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, 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.

    Problems

    It does not work with my USB audio cable (USB 2.0, Esprit Eterna). Does not recognise the cable at all. It works with external hard drive (USB 2.0 LaCie) though. Seems to be a picky and unreliable product.

    Works occasionally

    Some USB devices get power but no data connection, like Sony cameras. False advertisement, it's not a real USB adapter.

    Only worked once

    Has worked with 1 usb drive but doesn't work with others. The drive it worked on was a usb 3.0 external SSD and it could only connect and copy at 480mbps... Other usb drives, flash drives, don't even get detected.

    Won't connect USB Flash Drive

    I'm using a MacBook Pro with Touch bar. The adaptor recognizes my external hard drive (which connects through USB) but will not recognize flash drives at all. I tested my USB with my previous MAC, and it works just fine. There is definitely an issue here that Apple needs to RESOLVE.

    First Device I plugged in didn't work & almost broke the usb's connector

    Something was off right away.. it was difficult plugging my Apricon Aegis ecrypted external drive's usb connector in.
    The female USB side of this adapter is too tight a spacing.

    Then after plugging in, the drive took an inordinate amount of time to be recognized and when I tried doing something with it, then the drive ejected itself. Tried reseating, starting over and half the time the drive isn't recognized and half the time the same ejecting thing happens. After a hour wasted messing around .. i gave up. I have used this same external drive on numerous other MacBook Pro's without issue.

    Even worse, when I tried separating the external drive from the dongle, i almost broke the drive's usb connector pulling it out of the way too snug fit.

    I'll keep trying to make it work but I'm not looking forward trying the 10s of other usb devices I own and feeling like it will be hit or miss.

    Unsatisfactory Adapter

    My purpose in purchasing a MacBook Pro was to use Logic ProX with my Yeti USB mic and my Axiom midi keyboard, both are USB connected. When plugged in through the port via the USB-c to USB adapter, those devices fail to connect to the computer. Both devices show that they are receiving power from the computer (they light up), but neither show up as available devices on my MacBook. It seems like the adapter is unsuitable for connecting external devices.

    AWFUL!

    Purchased this for my flash drives, and other equip, it doesn't even recognize the flash drive! I can't do what I need with the MacBook Pro - makes me sick to pay that much money and not have it do what I need. I should have kept my old computer!

    Just Terrible!

    It works for 2 things so far, a piece of music hardware and a zoom recorder. It won't connect to a canon camera and it also won't work for a drawing tablet which I need for my business.

    Adapter works some of the time, sometimes

    The Thunderbolt 3/USB-C to USB adapter works OK--depending on how complicated the connection is. On my old MBP, with real USB 3.0 ports, my USB peripherals worked without issue. Using the new 2017 MBP, with the USB-C ports requires this or similar adapters, and nothing is reliable.

    This thing works, but not universally. Most thumb drives work. Connecting to a USB 3.0 hub has less success. It works OK for getting power out to charge something, but not always so reliable for something that requires data; especially prolonged data connections. So far, very disappointed with the new MBP. It has some nice new features, but the fact that we have to use things like this USB-C to USB Adapter for everything is a hassle.

    Apple going downhill ... FAST

    I purchased the dongle at an Apple store, so I'm assuming it's not a fake. The dongle fits the USB too tightly and now I cannot disconnect them at all. Broke the wireless mouse receiver trying to pull it out!

    Cannot connect wireless keyboard through dongle

    I have a wireless keyboard that connects through a usb 2.0 dongle. This keyboard has worked perfectly on my old MBP for 2 years, however it constantly lags and misses keystrokes when connected through this adapter.
