      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.

      Slightly annoying

      It will work when I have to buy it, but totally agree with the additional charge needed on top of buying the product, which shouldn't be necessary.

      Works on some USB items but not a MIDI, USB powered keyboard

      Works okay on standard non-powered devices like USB sticks but the MacBook Pro fails to recognise a Korg MIDI keyboard when connected via this adapter.

      It's frustrating to be charged for this

      I just bought a new laptop. I only realised that there were no usual USB ports when it arrived. Apple is not consistent with adaptors- when they changed the au I just bought a new laptop. I only realised that there were no usual USB ports when it arrived. Apple is not consistent with adaptors- when they changed the audio port for iPhone, an adaptor was included but not for the USB. This approach of asking to pay extra for adaptors is super annoying. It feels greedy and unfair to their customers.

      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.
