Does this adapter + Thunderbolt Cable support connection to LG 38UC99-W USB-C port from MacBook Pro Retina 2015
1 Answer from the Community
The Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter is only for connecting Thunderbolt 2 devices to Thunderbolt 3 computers, or for connecting Thunderbolt 3 devices to Thunderbolt 2 computers.
The LG 38UC99-W is not a Thunderbolt display.
The simplest way to connect the LG 38UC99-W to the MacBook Pro Retina 2015 is with a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable (not included). Connect the included USB Type A to C cable for USB functionality (to enable the two downstream USB 3.0 ports of the display).
Another option is to connect the display (with the included USB Type C cable) to one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports of a Thunderbolt 3 device that has two Thunderbolt 3 ports (such as a Thunderbolt 3 dock). Connect the Thunderbolt 3 device to the MacBook Pro Retina 2015 with the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and a Thunderbolt 2 cable. This method is much more expensive, but gives you all the ports of the Thunderbolt 3 dock, and frees up the DisplayPort input of the display to be used with a different computer.
