    First, let me state that this cable does exactly what I wanted, allowing me to connect my phone to thumb drives as well as using it to download files to a Nook. However, my journey to this satisfaction was almost derailed by the gentleman in the AT&T phone department. I asked him about connecting a thumb drive to my phone, and he insisted that I needed to buy a special thumbdrive with the proper mini-USB connector, I asked about adaptor cables and he insisted that none existed. Upon searching the accessories rack, lo and behold, a cable on a card specifically advertising the ability to connect a USB thumbdrive to an LG5 phone.

    Having purchased an Apple TV 4 I needed a USB C cable in order to side-load files onto it. After a brief review of "cheapie" USB C cables out there, it was obvious that not all cables, especially the cheap ones, actually adhere to the USB spec. This one was fairly inexpensive and worked fine for what I needed it to do. Now if I ever need to transfer via USB C, I have a cable I can trust.

    This adapter is great for simple tasks. I didn't feel it necessary to buy the big guns, I really just needed something with a single port for plugging in a usb to upload documents. Haven't had an issue. Just a bummer my MacBook doesn't even have 1 USB port, instead Apple makes you spend more money on the necessary additions.

    In order to "sideload" data or programs onto the new Apple TV 4th Generation, you need some way to connect to the USB C connector on the Apple TV. If you're like most people your USB external or flash drives all have the old USB Type A connector. This j5 adapter is perfect for connecting those USB drives to the new Apple TV - works like a charm.

    #DongleLife ammiright! This was the first single I purchased with my MacBook. It works really well and is priced good. I always have this one plugged in for my iPhone but have used a USB drive with it. Good for the price and I would recommend it with a touchbar MacBook purchase. You will definitely need it!

    Perfect cable for connecting USB C devices

    Great for new laptops with USB C onboard and legacy peripheral devices such as storage. Terrible solution for legacy laptops with standard USB connections to connect to USB C peripherals , as you would need to purchase additional cables to make it work. I found a USB A to USB C cable on Amazon. None were available at Best Buy at the time.

    Best way to keep using "old" USB devices

    I like how Apple pushes the boundaries of technology, but I was dismayed to purchase the new MacBookPro and found the traditional USB port had gone away -- which I very much needed for flash drives and external hard drives. This adapter is a clean and necessary solution. Very happy with it.

    Although I am disappointed that Apple is now charging for equipment once included in the purchase of their expensive computers, I am happy with the functioning of the USB adaptor that allows me to attach USB devices to my new MacBook Pro. It's a good size and plugs in easily at either end.
