      Expensive Piece of Junk

      If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the access If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the accessory you've been dreaming of. I've tried different monitors. I've tried different HDMI cables. Nothing seems to help. This thing is incredibly frustrating to use. If you do decide to call support, expect to be on the phone for an hour only to be told "try plugging it into another port" on your single port usb-c macbook...

      WARNING - Bad Hardware

      This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own Super This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own SuperDrive, pre 2011) than don't work with this adaptor, but there are more that don't work - both for storage OR Time Machine (!). This is really bizarre since the other USB-C to USB-A adaptor WILL work, but since this adaptor doesn't supply power to your MacBook, it's not a long term solution. In the instances where the Multiport adaptor DOES work with an external hard drive, it can experience drastically reduced speeds and randomly unmount the drive. The straight USB adaptor, with the same drive, does not show these issues. I can't believe Apple put this on the market without 1) more rigorous testing and 2) with this serious an issue. Having an external hard drive work with your laptop is a pretty important requirement. Terrible, terrible piece of equipment. I was an Apple employee and have worked with Macs for decades. This issue was diagnosed with a genius at an Apple Store after we went through several Multiport and regular USB adaptors, and then followed up with additional testing at home. Apple should be ashamed.

      Not worth it

      For something that is official by Apple I had higher expectations of quality. Cable it self is fragile, ports are not working always properly. The biggest issue For something that is official by Apple I had higher expectations of quality. Cable it self is fragile, ports are not working always properly. The biggest issue I found is connecting external drives as it mount and dismount them and even slight move can cause dismount and hdd issues you don't wanna have. Second big issue is connecting to 1440p monitors. I bought Satechi external USB-C adapter that has no problem with the same monitor. Apple failed with this product and asks too much money. This product is not worth it!

      Not a Thunderbolt 3 Adapter

      The description of this adapter is misleading. This adapter has a USB-C connector, which both USB and Thunderbolt 3 use, but this is not a Thunderbolt 3 adapter The description of this adapter is misleading. This adapter has a USB-C connector, which both USB and Thunderbolt 3 use, but this is not a Thunderbolt 3 adapter. The end result is that it struggles to work properly on anything beyond 1080p. I had to purchase a proper Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI adapter to get my 4k display to work, but I keep this guy handy for travel where I rarely need to connect to a 4K display.

      People Complain Too Much
