    Perfect and Required

    This item works perfectly and I couldn't really ask for more than a lower price. This is an Apple product so it comes at a premium, of course, but it's also useful and a required accessory if you have any previous electronics or computer accessories. If you are starting out new you can buy external and flash drives that are built for Thunderbolt 3 but if you have any existing drives or even an iPhone that isn't brand new you'll need this cable or a hub. This product deserves 5 stars but because it isn't cheap and is required I have to remove 1 star. If it were cheaper or something that wasn't required it would get 5 stars all day long. I opted to purchase a hub and this cable for a bit of versatility when connecting my devices. This cable works great when quickly connecting my phone or a flash drive on the go. Perfect and required for every MacBook laptop bag!

    This is a neat little thing that makes it easy to get things like your USB flash drive to work with your new MacBook Pro, and if thats all you need you don't have to get out a big bulky attachment to plug your older style USB into you MacBook with this. It works like its part of the cable and I can't say to much about how sturdy it is yet but so far mine works good and doesn't show any signs of ware but I wouldn't recommend folding it. I will say that if all I want to do is take my laptop somewhere then I can just stick this in my pocket just incase with out noticing I'm packing something extra, and it can be used with external mouse. I will say that the price on this item is why I gave it 4 stars and I don't think a simple adapter needs to cost so much...and these should be thrown in with the computer and that would be great. I wish they would make this stuff in black or grey that would be less likely to get dirty and be really cool looking, but I do like the white clean look. Quick to plug in and go, easy to use if you need the plug in but don't want a large set of adapters to plug in get this.

    Buy it because it's Apple

    In the age of 2019 where Apple is no longer considered a 100% reliable brand (face it, they are not what they once were and this is from a lifelong Apple User who got in well before it was trendy) the truth is things like using 3rd party products with our top tier devices becomes a risk. When you buy all 1st party or "authorized manufacturers" then any failure you may experience will carry the potential of being thrown back onto you. It seems Apple and most other companies are not as rigid about this yet but with the new generation of people nowadays who abuse warranties so when they want to sell their perfectly functioning equipment as brand new due to the exchange they receive I see in the very near future companies who will become more prohibitive when drafting their policies so they include disclosures. At the very least the adapter works and does it's job while matching with the Apple entourage. Slightly overpriced perhaps (I don't think so) but as a one time purchase it can potentially be overlooked.

    apple milks its customers for more cash!

    the new MacBook retina 12" is slick. unfortunately it comes at the expense of built-in ports on the laptop. for a $1300 laptop, this accessory should be included in the box. however, apple chose the money-grab option, and forces the customer to buy this necessary accessory for an additional $20. this most basic adapter only allows for a single usb connection (usb 3+ I believe), however once you plug it in, you cannot simultaneously charge the laptop. I bought this first, as the adapter I wanted (the one that has power pass-through, hdmi, and usb) was not available for purchase until recently. this adapter is very limited, but a usb hub may increase it's utility. do yourself a favor, skip this accessory, and buy the adapter(s) with more functionality (though the extra $60 ($80 each) for those isn't something to sneeze at).

    For those who really just need USB-A

    I was originally thinking of buying a hub/dock/multi-adapter for the USB-C port on my MacBook Pro, but then realized that the only report that I REALLY need is USB-A. Especially after seeing all the connectivity and quality issues that customers were having with the other non-Apple brand USB-C hubs/adapters, I decided I only trusted Apple for my connectivity and went with this adapter. Granted, it's an Apple product and it's not cheap, but you definitely want the best for your expensive Apple machine. I've only been using it so far with a corded mouse, so I can't really comment on speeds with external hard drives and stuff. It doesn't look as bad as it does in-person than in the image. It feels sturdy, and in-person it's not as big/obnoxious as I thought it would be.

    Great, BUT check the number of ports you have!

    There is nothing wrong with this at all. However check the number of ports that you have or at least do not listen to the person at the store. I have the Mac Book which has ONLY 1 port. So when you plug this in to use it for whatever you want it is great UNTIL you need to charge the computer. You need to buy the other adapter for $69 that has a USB and also a USB-C on it so you can keep using whatever you have plugged in and also charge your computer. So I had to go and buy the other one as a result. Had I looked and not listened to the person I would not have spent the money on this. Not that there is anything wrong with the adapter at all. Check your number of ports first!

    An absolute "must buy"

    With USB-C but no standard USB ports on the newer Macs, this adapter is a necessity. It is essentially required if you want to connect any older USB device to these new machines. The real question is why it isn't just included in the box to begin with. Another needed cable is the USB-C to Lightning cable if you plan on using an iPhone or iPad. Sure, new technology tries to convince you that you will rarely need a corded connection, but it really important to have for the convenience issues that arise. Overall the USB-C to USB adapter and USB to Lightning are the two cables that I have found useful with my new computer that only has USB-C ports.

    I bought a new MacBook Pro 15" and just wanted to plug my iPhone to it to back up the data. I then realized that with all my existing iPhone/iPad adapters and chargers, I still need another adapter since my MacBook Pro only has USB-C type ports and my other Apple devices work with the original USB-A type. This adapter does the trick. Originally, i thought I had bought the wrong one as the USB end of it was very snug and it felt like it would not go in. I did not want to force it and risk damaging it. Once I got confirmation that it was the correct adapter, it works fine, just needed a firm push

    USB-C is the FUTURE

    Well...what can I say? Not everything has gotten upgraded to Type C even though it is the current and future standard. Until then, we gotta charge our power banks, external HDDs, headphones, cameras, etc. via USB old school. One important thing to note is you lose the USB C standard charging speeds. I know for my phone this dips from about 5V 3A to about 2.1A at the maximum. The USB Type A is substandard and must only be used for things that cannot be connected via Type C. I'm sure you could find something cheaper via 3rd-party. This does the job though and is excellent quality, built to last at least about an year (hopefully).

    QUICK-CHARGE YOUR NEW IPHONE!

    This is a great way to try out the new quick-charge feature on your iPhone 8, 8 Plus or X. You will plug the USB-C end into the USB-C port on an AC adapter with POWER DELIVERY, and plug your lightning cable’s USB end into this, and then you can watch the magic happen as you juice your new phone in record time! Just ask your Best Buy associate to point you at the right adapter. I recommend the 29 watt power adapter the MacBook Air uses. Anything over that won’t increase your charge speed (they also have a 40-something watt and one much higher, but those are just wasted money when it comes to a phone charger).

    Annoyingly inconsistent

    A simple product. USB-C to USB adapter. Pretty simple but Apple screwed it up nonetheless. Fits VERY tightly into the USB side. Very hard to detach from a hard drive or other external device. But more importantly it works sometimes but not other times, at least on a MacBook Pro. I use it to connect a hard drive to a new MacBook Pro for Time Machine backups, but half the time the attached hard drive is not recognized. Is the adapter defective? EVERY time I plus it into a USB-C port on a windows computer, it works. Don't ask me why but this is my experience.

    This is a dongle-- the simplest thing known to man. It's almost impossible to screw up, and this one (of course) just works. So that SHOULD make it a five-star product. It GETS three because Apple shouldn't charge for these things, period. The way I figure-- if you sell me an overpriced laptop without all of the ports I ACTUALLY use today because you've positioned it way too far into the future, then you OWE me the dongle that makes it work right here in good ol' 2017. So, in short-- this thing is fine (how could it not be?). The business model behind it, however, is anything but.

    when you spend $2700 on a laptop, you would think that you would get EVERYTHING you need with that laptop, but you are buying Apple so you know that isn't the case. I am a huge fan of my purchase, and would do it again in a second. This is something you have to have, since most accessories haven't transitioned over to the USB C way of life yet, there will be a time in the future to where we will not need extra dongles, but this is 2018 and dongles are a way of life in the Apple World..... well if you are using their latest and greatest it is...

    Does Not Work With iPad Pro "11"

    This adapter will neither sync the new iPad Pros with the USB-C connector nor charge them. Apple Support sent me a link to an information page which says to use the Belkin USB-A to USB-C cable. I bought the Belkin at Best Buy and it works just fine. The Belkin costs more but if you include the cost of a USB-A to USB-A cable to the cost of the adapter it is the same. The Apple adapter does work for connecting an USB thumb drive to a Dell XPS 13 with an USB-C jack.

    A necessity with the new USB ports

    I am not old and am in my mid 20's, but I have a lot of things that work off of a standard USB plug that we have been used to having for a while now. I still like using the old USB plug and all my items I have that use it, but with the new Macbook pro I have it only has USB-C ports. Most computers are going to the new USB ports so I recommend this for most people these days. It works really well, don't even notice that you are using the older USB connection. I imagine it would work with all of the new USB-C ports, even on non apple devices, but I have only used it with my macbook pro so I can't say that from experience.

    Buying a new MacBook Pro means that you will also be buying a handful of USB-C adapters, since that's the only port available on the machine. Apple's adapters are very pricey for what you are getting; I bought this one because it had been marked down at my local BestBuy. Other vendors such as Monoprice have equivalent adapters at a fraction of the cost, and the ones I've purchased from them seem to be of good quality. If you are a purist or running into BestBuy right before a meeting to grab a missing adapter, grab an Apple branded product. If you can wait a few days, there are better prices to be had.

    Mandatory

    USB-C to USB adapters are required if you need to connect any USB devices to a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. I recommend 1 for each device because plugging and disconnecting a device from the USB connection side on the adapter is not smooth (the USB-C connection side easily plugs into the laptop). The connection on the USB side fits snug and needs some force to plug and unplug. If you’re cost conscious, buy 1 or 2 and see if you can deal with plugging and unplugging your devices. Overall, these adapters are mandatory if you need to connect your USB devices to a USB-C connection on your computer/laptop.

    There isn't much to say about these - they're basic converters by Apple and as such have the "Apple tax" attached to them. They work well and I have found Apple branded cables and converters to hold up better for the most part than the cheaper off-name branded items. Another way to go is to get a hub that will allow you to connect multiple types of cables too. I have one that does HDMI, USB-A, and USB-C. However sometimes you need to plug something directly into the laptop. These work.

    I purchased this adapter to connect my external hard drive to my MacBook Pro 13.3. My Mac recognized my drive and I was able to transfer my files. One note your hard drive must formatted as FAT or exFAT. I also tried connecting my old PC mouse to my Mac using this cable. My Mac thought it was a new keyboard but it did recognize my mouse. It made it easier for me too move from PC to Mac. It is another cable you have to have with you but it works flawlessly and is fairly cheap. $ 19 bucks and genuine Apple product. Highly recommend this cable.

    USB-C to USB Adapter

    Just spent a lot of money on a new 13" Macbook Pro and had to buy a USB-C to USB Adapter so I could use my printer, etc. - things that I used with my other Macbook Pro - so they would work!! Frustrating that Apple didn't make this brand new version of their Macbook Pro with a USB port and very frustrating that I had to buy a USB-C to USB Adapter since they didn't even provide one! I love the computer but not the fact that Apple has done this again to its loyal customers!!
