      bulky and expensive

      Although it works fine it is bulky and the design ill considered, and rather more expensive than an Apple TV this rather essential item allows you to connect a Although it works fine it is bulky and the design ill considered, and rather more expensive than an Apple TV this rather essential item allows you to connect a USB 3 to your MacBook, but it's terribly bulky especially when you only want to connect a USB device for a few minutes to swap files. This slightly defeats the wonder of having such a slim package as the wonderful MacBook. Hopefully they will get around to doing a USB 3 stick to USB C sometime soon... meanwhile us early adopters feel foolish

      Does not recognise USB3 drive

      I bought this alongside my MacBook so that I could backup my Mac. I now discover that this adapter is not compatible with USB 3.0 drives.

      DO NOT BUY this

      I'm using this to connect a monitor, power and a Mac USB keyboard to my MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016). The adapter worked for almost a day, but then the I'm using this to connect a monitor, power and a Mac USB keyboard to my MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016). The adapter worked for almost a day, but then the keyboard stopped responding. Checking the adapter I found it was so hot I could not hold it. I unplugged it and found that the ports on the back are smelling of burnt plastic. Clearly there is something fishy with this product - judging from all the other negative reviews too. A very bad situation. This is the only way I can connect a monitor to my MacBook - it's the only port. If Apple cannot provide me with a working adapter then my MacBook becomes severely limited!

      Useless expensive junk

      Recently bought a new MacBook Pro, which I use at the side of my desk plugged in to three external monitors. At least I used to on my old MacBook. With this new Recently bought a new MacBook Pro, which I use at the side of my desk plugged in to three external monitors. At least I used to on my old MacBook. With this new one, suddenly I need MORE adapters, and this is the only option for plugging it in to my displays. Works less than half the time, usually just gives me a black screen and flashes on and off. Restarting the laptop occasionally works but usually not. Surprisingly low quality for something from Apple. Look in to third party alternatives that don't cost $80. This is just another white paperweight now.

      Pointless and unreliable

      To those who are not technical, you may well assume as I did that this great new thing USB-C was the end to all our woes, and that if Apple used it, it would be To those who are not technical, you may well assume as I did that this great new thing USB-C was the end to all our woes, and that if Apple used it, it would be Thunderbolt 2 or 3 ready in a £69 accessory like this, so you could plug a monitor into the USB-C port along with a 2nd one into the HDMI port. But no, all the USB-C port is for is power, which in the case of the Apple AV adapter I have, doesn't work, IE, I have a duff one. Anyway, why is it Apple don't make a 4 or 5 port USB-C hub with each of the ports TB3 ready, so one can connect the following to our MacBook Pros without worrying which port is TB3: TB3 hard drive, two external 4K monitors, power, GoPro Hero 6 (USB-C ready), removable TB3 drive, printer, wired mouse, camera such as the Panasonic GH5 that has a USB-C port. That's 8 items in total, 3 from the MB Pro direct, and 5 from the hub that is connected to one of the MB Pro ports. Hun should also include Speedy Ethernet port for wired connections, 3.5m audio in, 3.5m audio out and SD card slow. Chinese ones I have bought are unreliable. Apple? Over to you.
