Does anyone have any experience with USB Type C Adapters. I'm going to pick up a new Macbook Pro but still need to connect a number of legacy Type A devices to it so will need an adapter of some sort. Looking for at least 2 Type A connectors, HDMI and Ethernet would be nice to have but not essential. Just wondering if there are any brands I should steer clear of. There are so many third party adapters available I don't know how good they are. To able to run power through it and use accessories would be a must so I can charge and upload at the same type.

 

 

 

Some examples

I was in the same boat when I got my new MBP – and I now actually import and sell a great adapter that has USB 3.0 (2 ports) and HDMI, as well as power pass-through.
