Seems like a lot to ask in a single adapter.

Is there one available on Amazon that anyone is using and is happy with?

Would love to have all these features without losing the charging ability of the Macbook.

Thank you in advance

I don't own a rMB but have used my friend's for a couple of days when I didn't have my laptop with me. He has this hub and it seems to work fine: passthrough charging, Ethernet, 2x USB 3, HDMI and SD-card all in one. Only slight downside is you need to install a driver for Ethernet to work, but once that's done it's fine.

I obviously can't speak for its reliability, but it seemed very nice when I was using it.

Thank you for the assistance.

On the surface, it's exactly what I need. Under the hood, looking at the Amazon reviews, it's not rated well.

I might end up having to buy two different adapters. One for USB connection and one for powered-through ethernet.
[doublepost=1465374743][/doublepost]Actually....

This one is rated better:

Still new to this USB-C thing, so I am assuming it will do exactly what I need

That's beautiful! Monoprice is fantastic.

Would be even better if it has one USB port on it, but I can easily switch it out for another adapter.

Going to purchase this.

Thank you for that link, headcase!

I'm wondering why there aren't any dongles that give us three USB-C ports for devices. Even the OWC USB-C hub, it seems, has missed the boat on this.

Yes it has Ethernet and two USB ports from what I can see

Where is the ethernet? Too thin. No ethernet in the specs
