      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.

      Not Good

      I use Logic. A lot. I never had any issues with latency or distortion when plugging into an interface. Now, since recently getting a new Macbook, which required I use Logic. A lot. I never had any issues with latency or distortion when plugging into an interface. Now, since recently getting a new Macbook, which required a USB to USB-C adapter I am having major latency and distortion issues. I will be trying Amazon's direct USB to USB-C cable to replace the dongle that Mac makes. Fingers crossed that makes my very expensive Apple device work properly. Why Apple doesn't make a USB to USB-C cable? Dunno.

      Does exactly what it's supposed to do.

The elegance of having only USB-C ports is that (1) all cables (power, peripherals, etc.) will ONLY connect via USB-C, so you will NEVER have to worry about whether or not you have the right cable. All the cables will be right! The only cable left to switch over is the Lightning port, which really looks too much like USB-C anyway and really NEEDS to switch to USB-C. (2) The USB-C adapter, like the Lightning adapter, works the same right side up or upside down. In other words, unlike the old USB adapters, it doesn't matter which way you plug it in...it will always work. This is obviously SO MUCH BETTER than the old USB, not even accounting for how much more bandwidth and power it can handle, that it really doesn't make sense to have anything but USB-C. So, for all the whiners out there complaining about carrying around too many dongles, here's a suggestion: buy one of these adapters for every USB peripheral you own and simply leave the dongle plugged into the cable. Now, it's just an extension of that USB cable you already own. But now your cable is a few cm longer. Oh, and if the $19 x the number of peripherals you own is going to break the bank, maybe you're buying the wrong brand of computer in the first place. If you spend $2,000 plus on a laptop, then another $100 or so in dongles shouldn't be stressing you out so much. For those thinking about buying this...if you think you need it, then yes, you need it. Just buy it and know that you’ll have the Apple brand dongle which is meant to work with your Apple brand computer.

      Very Disappointed

Now what? I'll have to try a third party producer? Clearly, including a USB-C in the design of the computer forces users to buy the adapters. That's bad enough, but if they don't work?
