    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.

    Does the job

    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.

    A good option for connecting your devices

    This item works fine. It offers a convenient way to connect your USB-3 or USB-2 device to your USB-c port. I used it connect my devices to the ports on my MacBook Pro 2018. The newer Mac laptops only have USB-c ports on them so you have to use adapters such as this one to connect your peripherals.

    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.

    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.

    I accidentally left the wire in the pocket of my jeans then came laundry. After the clothes in the dryer only to find out when it was done my wire was in my pants. I quickly ran to my laptop plugged it in and saw that it still worked. Only downside was that it now looks moldy.

    #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!

    Apple Is in the cable business, they make computers that force you to buy cables and a adapters....just saying. My computer bag looks like the end of the internet...wires and all sorts of connecting devices!

    Gave me a quick way to convert a USB C connection to a USB 3.0 - I plugged it in and it was automatically recognized by my Asus Vivobook with Windows 10. I have been using it for two weeks now without any challenges.

    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.

    I found myself buying this product because I had a rewards certificate that I had to redeem by a certain date. A comparable product can be found online at a much better price. But, the product works fine, and I was able to start using it immediately instead of waiting for two days to have it shipped.

    Had to migrate my files from my old iMac to a new Macbook Pro and wow did it move fast from the USB 3.0 External drive to the MacBook Pro via this USB-c to USB 3.0 adapter. Any 2016 or newer MacBook Pro owner needs one of these to connect with the old world technology.

    I use the usb adapter to be able to review work I do not want to store of my MacBook. I work with a nonprofit and do not need their data on my computer but find it easy to use in meetings and share reports from another computer.

    This adapter allows you to back up your cellphone pics and documents to a thumb drive, external hard drive, and other devices. This also allows for greater privacy/security giving you full control over your data and no need for Wi-Fi or cloud service.

    I purchased this accessory because the new computer does not have the adapter connection built in. I did not have to use it, as the projector I was given to use was VGA. I do not really know yet how it works. I do believe it will be the right one for future use.

    So far so good with this adapter. Sometimes Apple charging cords or adapters seem to be a little flimsy and fray after a while. This adapter seems to be more durable and hopefully lasts longer than the other brands.

    I tried to use the adapter to run an external HD but when I tried to save a large file to it I kept getting an error. I haven't tried any other adapters yet but this one didn't work at all.

    This product works okay. I had some connection issues where I had to flip the cable over before my computer would read it. If you get the Insignia™ - USB Type-C to HDMI External Video Adapter - White, you get more I/O for about the same price.
