Yes, it's got that fancy new touch strip that's supposed to completely revolutionize the way you PhotoShop and iMovie. (If the former can be a verb, why can't the latter?) But some people just aren't happy with the new 2016 MacBook Pro, not only became of RAM limitations, but more notably because of the lack of "legacy" ports. If you have the courage, this new set of ADATA USB-C adapters could make your new MBP useful again.


As you already know, the new Macbook Pro has nothing but USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, so you need to connect everything though those. There's no SD card slot, no HDMI... there's not even a regular old USB port for your flash drives. That's where the range of ADATA USB-C adapters and hubs come to the rescue.

They're exactly what you think they are. These plug into the USB-C port on your MacBook Pro (or any other USB-C device, of course) and you regain your old functionality. There's an ADATA USB-C OTG reader with USB-C, USB-A, and a microSD card reader for $14.99, a range of USB-C video cables to provide HDMI or VGA connections, and a $37.99 USB-C hub with USB-C, USB-A and HDMI.

Look for these adapters and hubs to launch soon, selling through Newegg and Amazon. The press release and image gallery are embedded below for your convenience.

ADATA Releases Full Range of USB-C Adapters and Hubs

Transition to more convenient USB made easier while maintaining legacy standard support

Taipei, Taiwan – Nov. 1, 2016 – ADATA® Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today announced the launch of several products designed to make USB-C adoption easier. They make the reversible USB standard compatible with connectors such as USB-A and HDMI, as well as legacy plugs like VGA (D-sub). ADATA believes USB-C represents a positive development that benefits customers. The reversible connector is more than easy to plug in - it also marks the arrival of faster data rates and higher quality signal transmission. With new adapters, cables, and hubs, users can connect devices with USB-C to various other devices so that functionality is retained. All cables and adapters use high quality materials to ensure optimized data carrying capabilities.

Data portability: USB-C OTG Reader and USB-C Hub
Making data access eminently effortless, the USB-C OTG Reader combines USB-C, USB-A, and microSD/SDXC/SDHC support in one ultra-compact on the go product. It offers an excellent way to move content and interconnect devices. Relatedly, the USB-C Hub has USB-C, USB-A, and HDMI, with powered ports to charge devices. The HDMI port allows displaying content from devices such as notebooks and smartphones on TVs, and the inclusion of USB-A ensures wide compatibility with numerous products.

Video connectivity: USB-C to HDMI and VGA
ADATA is making available adapters that convert digital and analog content from USB-C to devices with HDMI and VGA. Products allow for easy video connections from smartphones, notebooks, tablets, and other devices with USB-C to virtually every device with a video-in, including TVs, set top boxes, game consoles, and audio/video receivers. The USB-C to VGA adapter maintains legacy support and should prove very useful for users that need to display content via projectors in business and public situations.

Powerful transmission: USB-C cable and adapter
ADATA USB-C cables are made using robust materials to prevent damage to wiring due to bending, twisting, or pulling. The premium build of these cables supports up to 100W thanks to an integrated E-MARK controller, accelerating device charging and enabling full USB 3.1 Gen 2 bandwidth for buffer-free UHD 4K. Additionally, ADATA is releasing compact USB-C to USB-A plug-style adapters, converting any of the many billions of USB-A cables worldwide to reversible USB-C instantly and with no loss of data delivery fidelity.
