    Don't expect it to work with HDMI

    Am at a client, preparing to give a presentation and connected the HDMI port to the projector HDMI port.

    No output at all. Tried another HDMI cable, same. And, yes, it is updated to vn 2.35 latest driver.

    Tried using a colleague's PC and all worked fine first time.

    Can only assume Apple products are still not reliably business-ready.

    There is not 100% reliable pass-through for HDMI on this product.

    Multiport Adapter - works fine with new MacbookPro

    I bought the USB-C VGA multiport adapter with my new MacBookPro (with function keys and only two USB C ports).
    Set up the MacBook Pro in the Covent Garden Apple Store (helpful, intelligent staff) and used it to run a Powerpoint presentation (with VGA cable to external monitor) in Dubai the next day. Everything worked FINE.
    I have now run courses in six different locations, with different screens and VGA adaptors in each place, and had only one problem: at the third venue I closed the lid of my Macbook before going to lunch. On return I lifted the lid of the MacBook, screen came to life immediately ... but had intermittent flashing black windows opening and closing. Minor panic ... but after disconnecting the multiport adapter and reconnecting, everything worked fine.
    Also, having read negative comments about having to have an external adapter in the first place, I was pleasantly surprised with how easy was to tuck the adapter (with VGA, USB and Power cables connected) around the back of my MacBook so that they didn't get in the way at the side.

    Poor!

    Bought this genuine product after having tried a cheaper alternative that didn't work well with many monitors; unfortunately this is not much better!

    I needed it to perform with a VGA projector this morning to show a PowerPoint presentation to a client and the screen kept going black then coming back on. It's done this before with other devices and when in use the image doesn't always fill the connected screen correctly when using in second monitor, rather than mirrored mode (mirrored is worse as the adaptor often defaults devices to 800x 600!

    Yes, before someone asks I'm fully up to date with drivers etc. and the same screens and devices all work seamlessly with my old MacBook Air and apple VGA adaptors.
    Yes I've tried various settings to correct issues without success.

    This is a major problem as with a new MacBook I've no other way of connecting screens and projectors that don't have a HDMI output.

    If Apple support read this I'd be happy to hear their views as to why this product appears so flawed, and how I can get these issues addressed given it is soooo expensive!
