      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.

      USB is not reliable for external drives

      As others have noted, this adapter can kill your external drive. Frustrating.

      Like others... not happy

      Just doesn't drive my HP ZR2740W well at all from my 27" 5k iMac thunderbolt 3 model. It looks like it has walking green dots banded on the screen and it clear Just doesn't drive my HP ZR2740W well at all from my 27" 5k iMac thunderbolt 3 model. It looks like it has walking green dots banded on the screen and it clearly cannot drive the display at 2560x1440 correctly. I've tried plugging in a normal 1080p display (several in fact) with mixed success. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't seem to sync correctly. The fact that the USB port is a USB 2.0 port also stinks. I would look anywhere else for a display connector.

Have a brand new external drive that does not work simply because this cable disconnects every 10 or so minutes (while plugged in) so the back up stops. Connects to HDMI fine... about 20X the cost of the same device on amazon. not worth the money.
