Works well, with size caveat-
4/5

I like the form factor and how it can easily stay attached to the end of a mouse/HD cable.
The only downside is these cannot be deployed side-by-side on a Macbook Pro due to the width of the connector, and also with the i-Blason case I use the adapter won't fit in the lower of the two USB-C ports due to overlapping layers (pictured).

I'd recommend this if you plan to use it with a HD/Mouse cable and don't use a computer case or have parallel USB-C ports (one port on each side would probably have no issues).

Durable and good looking
5/5

 It is the second time I buy from them. The product is durable and good-looking. I love their detailed design as well with small edge to help unplug smoothly. There is indeed some room to improve or maybe this is its feature. They made it firm and tight after plugging in my MacPro and you cannot plug both 2 adapters on the same side.
However, considering the price, I cannot really ask for more. Their products are really durable. Even my official Apple cable worn out, their cases of cable still looked like a brand new one. I hope they can continue to maintain the quality.

Laptop port Protected
5/5

These adapters are very well designed and work great on my new 2018 MacBook Pro 13" After purchase I read that poorly designed Type C products can fry your laptop "USB-C" ports. I contacted the Syntech Team about my concerns
and a representative contacted the next day with the following information........Hello,

The 56k ohm resistor is build in and they are designed as USB-IF standards.

Kind regards,
Doris

Syntech not only has exceptional high quality products, but also good customer service. I won't hesitate to buy from them
for my future needs.

two do not fit on one macbook!!
4/5

i ended up going with the two pack in the case that i needed two devices at once. however, on the recent macbook pros, they put both of the usb c ports next to each other, so both converters will not fit on one laptop!

the product itself is small and sleek, and seems to be fairly sturdy. it's a way better choice than going with a dongle from apple thats three times as much, however if you see yourself needed access to two ports at once, just go with the pack of one and get a dongle for the other.

Solid, Only Minor Quibbles
4/5

To be fair, these are solid connectors, with a good build quality, and they do exactly what it says on the label - take a male USB-A plug and convert it to a male USB-C plug. The housing is metal, they feel well built, and you get two for the price others sell one for. No, you can't get two side by side on a MacBook Pro, but the USB-C ports are so close there's no physical way to fit two USB-A plugs side by side.

That said, the minor issues:
- As others have mentioned, this isn't the laptop space grey. It's darker, which may match one of the older phone/iPods, just not the MBP.
- The depth means that most USB-A cables are standing proud a little. Not much, around 2-3mm, but it feels like these should have been made just slightly deeper to prevent that.

Still, all in all, a solid buy to get you through the USB-C transition.

Using these downgrades USB 3.0 to 2.0
3/5

Despite what the description says, these connectors DO NOT MAINTAIN USB 3.0. To many, this may not be important.

I own a small business (networking and digital media) and have many many applications that require USB 3.0 or better. I bought these adaptors for several applications and as backups to carry in case I did not have a USB C or had a bad cable on a job or at home.

We tested these adaptors here with USB 3.0 cables of 3 different brands and found that data speeds through the cable dropped to 1 GB/s (sometimes less) from 4 GB/s without the adaptors. The description clearly says it maintains 1 GB/s but is good for up to 3 and works with USB 3.0. This is false. Once you put this adaptor on a REAL USB 3.0 you have downgraded it to a 2.0.

We have several devices that ONLY work with USB 3.0.

Device 1 - Media conversion device for digital menu boards - Requires both the power and at least a constant 2 GB/s of data speed from a USB 3.0 cable. This device will not even work or show up on a 2.0 cable. We used a USB 3.0 cable that was Type A on one end and Type C on the other end and of course it worked fine. We then took the same length and brand of 3.0 cable that had Type A on both ends and put the adaptor (this product I am reviewing) on and the device would NOT work. The cable was fine as it charged a phone so this meant the adaptor was working but was not properly designed for a real 3.0 application. Although it provided power to the media device (minimal I might add for some reason) it would not provide anything else to allow the device to operate. we then used a REAL 3.0 extension on the same cable without the adaptor and the device worked.

Device 2 - Oculus Quest (Linked) - Doing a similar test as above. For those with a Quest, they know that the Link is VERY finicky on the cable... Using the adaptor, the Quest wouldn't even attempt to link up or even allow Windows to recognize it as a device. The charging DID work through the adaptor but VERY poorly. We tried both adaptors that came in package with same results. We also tried all 6 USB 3.0+ ports on the first PC and same with the other. we also tried the virtual ports on the RTX 2080ti cards in both PCs that were Type C and still no results.

Bottom line is this, these adaptors shouldn't even be have any mention of USB 3.0 compatibility in their description. Take it from a 15 year professional in my trade... These adaptors are no better than ones you would find in an electronics department in any given store.

OOPS, almost forgot about the other issue!!

The length of the actual connector that goes into the device is too short for EVERY PHONE we tried to plug it into that had a protective case on it. In other words, we had to take the rubber or plastic cases OFF the phone to allow this connector to fit into the port to charge firmly. Otherwise, it would just fall out. The cases we have on our phones are not any crazy or fancy big cases...They are merely little scratch protectors that snap onto the phones. When I compared the connector length of these adaptors to the length of a Samsung charger cable.. these were slightly shorter and of course more bulky.

The only thing good I have to say about this product is that they fit very nicely onto the Type A cable with no play or problems.

This is a great stuff!
5/5

I got a pair of these for my wife’s new MacBook Pro. It only has USB C formatted ports. In order to transfer her old files, I extracted the SSD from her unibody MBP and inserted it in a USB 3 case, which I connected to the new MBP with a USB3 cable, which connected to the new machine via one of these converters. It moved over 200GB at 200-300MB/S. Not bad! I have uploaded a photo. I purchased another pair already because at this price I will tape one of these converted on to the end of each of her USB peripheral cables for ease of use.
