    Worked with 1 device, not the other

    Worked fine for my external backup hard drive to hook that to my new 5k iMac, didn't work at all to hook up my external Dell monitor.

    Wont convert a USBC drive to a Thunderbolt 2 input

    This product seems to be meant for adapting USBC computer input to a thunderbolt 2 drive. I tried the revers with no luck. I used the sandisk extreme 900 USBC drive into my iMac 5k with a thunderbolt cable and it would not read at all. The back of the box shows how it's intended to be connected, and since usb-c is reversible, apple should publish this.

    It Works, but it could be better

    To everyone who wrote a 1 star review because their mini display port monitor won't work - THIS IS NOT A DISPLAY PORT ADAPTER. It only works with THUNDERBOLT 2 displays.

    I have tested with an Apple Thunderbolt Cinema Display and it works perfectly fine. Ethernet, USB, etc all work as they should. I took off 2 stars because Apple should have provided a magsafe connection on this adapter so that their Thunderbolt display could provide power to the MacBook Pro.

    works great

    I've got a fair number of USB devices running through my 27" Apple display and they're all working great, as is the display, with the adapter into a new USB-C MacBook Pro.

    To calm fears of others about all the one-star, doesn't work reviews, here's my setup. I've got a keyboard, external SuperDrive, and a 7-port (+3 charge-only) Anker USB 3.0 hub plugged into the display. Into the USB hub, I've got a printer, a scanner, my iPhone/iPad cable, and a Logitech receiver.

    Everything is working. I can't give it 5/5 because of the cost to get an Apple product that's not that old (my display) with a new Apple product, but technically the adapter is just fine so far.
