      My computer has two USB 3 ports on it but 1 is an USB-c connection.So I went looking for an adapter because USB 2 is just to slow. I ran into many that was $19.99. So I found this one for $9.99 but it said it was MAC use. Then I started to see all of them said that. So I went ahead and got it for My Windows 10 and it works great. I get the same speed with it as I do with the other USB connection without the adapter. Thank god for this adapter much faster. Now I with both of my hard drives coping files form one to the other I get around 100MBs of data copied instead of 18 to 24 with USB2. The speed does very for hard drive to hard drive or thumb drive. So you may get a faster or slower speed.

      What can I say about this product. The new MacBook Pro I bought my wife on Saturday does not have USB slots. A converter is required to be able to connect external drives , mouse etc. I was told by my salesman that this product worked just as well as the one manufactured by Apple at a quarter of the price. He was correct for $10.00 we were able to connect all of our USB devices to my wife's MacBook Pro. I would recommend this product to anyone needing to connect a USB device to their late model Mac or MacBookPro .

      This is for my Macbook, which, of course, only has a single USB Type C port. And, like many people, I have peripherals which are USB Type A. Sometimes wifi isn't the most reliable, and a direct connection is the best option, and in those instances, I'm glad to have this little cable. Previously I had invested quite a bit more money in a hub that plugged into the Macbook and then offered a couple of USB A ports, but the hub was rather, um, delicate, and in spite of using only with kid gloves, it didn't last very long. I'm much more hopeful that this durable little cord will do the trick until I'm ready to upgrade my laptop again...

      If your getting anything with usb-c then don't leave the store without at least one of these cables and your going to regret after getting home if you don't also pick up one of the multi-hub adapters along with this cable because you will quickly find out this is a product you WANT to buy one of each kind of new cable because USB-C is the new standard and it is safe to invest in this cable type moving forward... There are differences in the cables so make sure if your looking for 3.1 2nd gen or 3.0 1st gen... I bought this for a Samsung Chromebook Plus and it works perfect for 2.0 and 3.0 drives at 2.0 speed

      A necessary accessory with inconsistent results

      Since the new MacBook Pro laptops have only a limited number and type of ports buying a USB-C to USB-A adapter is a necessary evil. The adapter, when it recognizes a device, functions as expected. However, it failed to recognize many of my flash drives (usually the 3.0 drives). It did recognize my Time Machine hard drive. I have read that the Apple brand adapter has similar problems. In any case, you will need to buy an adapter like this for your MacBook laptop. This one is half the price of the Apple one.

      It's plastic and feels like it will break at anytime. The guy at the store said it's nice for the price and that I should go with it, even though the apple adaptor was only $5 more. He basically made no other choice for me. The bulkiness of the product does not fit the MacBook style. The pigtail of it is either too long or too short. A slim design would be been better. I have no complaints about the usability of the product. Just the design needs work. I guess you get what you paid for.

      I have an Asus Transformer Book T100HA (newer and more advanced brother of the T100TA) which includes a USB Type-C port built in to the tab and a standard USB port on the keyboard dock. I decided to give this a try regardless of the fact that it says "for Mac", and it works FLAWLESSLY on Windows 10, using my new Seagate Backup Plus Slim. For those reading this and confused, it will help you use the USB Type-C as a traditional USB port.

      This will work with ANY computer (MAC or PC) that has a USB 3.1 adapter port. I use it with a j5Create Dual HDMI adapter to connect my Lenovo Yoga 900 to TWO monitors plus my laptop screen which is GREAT as I have been looking for a way to do this. Watch when buying this. It was I believe $9.99 in the store but there is one from j5Create (the dual HDMI monitor creator) that sells for either $69 or $79. WATCH WHICH ONE YOU PICK UP!! This is the correct one and works GREAT. Don't let the low price discourage you!
