What are the best USB-C accessories for the mew macbook pro?
I recently got one of these and an currently very happy with it.
j5 create JCA374 USB Type-C HDMI, RJ-45, USB 3.0
I just ordered this dongle with Power Delivery, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, and 2X USB 3.0 ports for $39: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GNL92YY/
Temporarily out of stock from Amazon, but you can still put an order in-- you might have to browse the 'other sellers' section to find the Amazon listing. I haven't seen a dongle with all those ports near that price range, and Huawei is a pretty well-respected Chinese manufacturer.
Sandisk memory stick. Usb c then pushed one way and type a on the other. It's great
I have the same one....love it!!
Get at least the Apple brand, USB-C to lightning. This is essential if your in the eco.
I have the 1m but will get the 2m soon (if I can get it for less than ******* $35)
I've also considered 'recycling' USB-A ethernet dongles with a C-to-A adapter as a money-saving solution; but have wondered if there's any significant speed hit compared to a USB-C GigaEthernet dongle (which really aren't too expensive)?
It's a really good point. Calls for a deeper dive into spec sheets. Alternatively, we could always run a benchmark utility on an external SSD to test the native USB-C connection, compared to a USB3.0 port. I prefer testing over spec sheets most of the time ;-)
No. There is no intelligence in the conversion from A to C, just a change of connector. So it won't influence the speed.
If you'd get a really, really crappy converter, then perhaps it could introduce errors but these should be corrected by the USB protocols.
Perfect! Very good to know. Thanks for the insight.
I use this and it works very well. 2-port USB-A 3.0, gigabit ethernet, USB-c power pass thru.
I use this Satechi USB-C hub and I love it... everything I need, if I need to even use it.
1. J5 USB 3.1 Type-c To Micro-b Cable
I use this cable to connect all my USb3.0 hard disks to the new MBP. Works great and allows me to avoid adapters.
2. SanDisk Ultra 64GB Dual Drive USB Type-C
Got this to avoid using dongles / adapters for moments I need to use a thumb drive.
I got this. Works well
IO Crest 2-In-1 Gigabit Ethernet Port Hub, Type-C Reversible Connector, White (SY-HUB50089) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BDKSZX4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_u4xyybARCPGMS
Have the same. Works great. I can pop it in to the PCs at work and transfer files with my new 15" MBP quite easily (though, honestly, most of the time I just do it via iCloud).
Ive ordered one of these, can't comment on the usage as it hasn't arrived yet but the 2 connectors should stop the snapping issues that I've heard of with the single USB-C version, and provide much more rigidity.
Has anyone used this SanDisk Extreme Pro SD UHS-II Card USB-C Reader from the Apple Store? I couldn't find it in store today when I went to pick up my MBP15. It's 29.99 right now on sale, they don't seem to have it anywhere else (Amazon, Best Buy etc.). I am looking for an SD card reader and probably that USB-C to USB 64GB stick looks nice as well.
4K @60fps USB Type-C hub
I have this. It's solid. It's flexible between the connector and the reader which is nice. It's limited to the card speed (obviously) but I've had no read/write issues. I use it to pull photos mostly.
Saw the video, not sure I want something like that. If you look the adapter is flimsy on attachment as the person is bending it with light a touch. I feel like these things are easily snapped off. I really only need the SD card reader and usb-c to Usb and maybe a usb-c to lightning for the phone (I usually never need to charge my phone [7+] on my laptop).

Yes I have this Sandisk and used it over the holidays. Seems very good and fast. I ordered it from the Apple Store and got it 2 day shipping free
EDIT: now seems to interfere with the WIFI
Has anyone here looked at this USB-C Hub: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B..._title_dp_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A142BGUZC6UH73 ?
I have the satechi one with ethernet and HDMI
it has been working well so far - I use the ethernet, hdmi, one usb port that connects to my monitor (to which all my usb stuff are connected)
It does get warm after a while just like most of the other hubs on amazon.
I do not charge thru it though.my charging cable is connected to the mbp directly.
