      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.

      Essential but at an unfair cost

However, as if purchasing the latest Macbook wasn't expensive enough, you now have no choice but to buy this as an added extra if you want to sync your phone to iTunes, download software or connect to digital camera etc. I agree with the majority when i say this should be included with the Mac or at least offered for discounted price at the time of purchasing the Mac. Just goes to show that the move to USB-C is just a way for apple to make their products more exclusive and give users no choice but to buy their add-ons at an unfair extra cost.

      Buy another adapter

      This destroyed my Razer Manowar USB plug. There is a metal part inside of this that makes the USB hold tight, I've never seen such a thing on USB 3.0 connectors This destroyed my Razer Manowar USB plug. There is a metal part inside of this that makes the USB hold tight, I've never seen such a thing on USB 3.0 connectors and at first I thought it could be good, but after using it for a week my USB connector got stuck inside the adapter. Now my headset is broken as well as the adapter. If this ever happens again I'm suing Apple for making a computer that needs adapters for everything and for selling adapters that destroy other components.

      Unnecessary

      only reason to buy this is because apple phased out the input option that works.

      Very useful adapter (and it is USB 3/2/1 compatible)

      Note; This is a review of the actual product, not a commentary about the price or whether Apple should fit use USB C to their latest laptops, or include the ada Note; This is a review of the actual product, not a commentary about the price or whether Apple should fit use USB C to their latest laptops, or include the adapter "in the box". One thing I wondered when deciding to buy this product or not, was if it was USB3 compatible or not. Answer; YES, it is. It has standard dual connectors in the socket that will allow it to connect USB3 devices at full speed as well USB2/1 devices. There were also some reviews that commented about the connector being too tight. I don't know if they've changed the design but mine is snug without being too tight. It will snugly hold any USB3 device/cable you plug into it, but you can pull it out as needed. So far it has connected to all the standard USB devices I have tested it on. I find it very useful and well worth the money.
