Works great connecting my TB2 Raid to my Windows Asus ProArt Studiobook Laptop. Allows me to get continued use of my expensive Raid 2 storage array well into the future maximizing return on my investment. Highly recommended !!

325 / 5000 Risultati della traduzione Thanks to StarTech TBT3TBTADAP now my Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Octo Core works fine connected to my DELL 7577 (TB3) Laptop. I would just like to know if I can cascade a second TB2 device to my UAD-2 Satellite Octo which has two TB2 ports (One already used for the StarTech TBT3TBTADAP). Thanks, Carlo

Works on XPS 13

Got this to connect my XPS 13 from 2016/2017 to my 27" thunderbolt Apple monitor. It worked straight out of the box. However I have a Dell TB16 dock as well. Tried using that as well. So the dock's usb-c connector goes into the XPS, and the Startech adapter goes from the dock to the Thunderbolt monitor. That didn't work: I needed to update the BIOS, Thunderbolt firmware, thunderbolt driver, and installed I believe the latest thunderbolt application from the Intel website. Everything works now, even the audio and usb ports on the monitor. (facetime camera doesn't work, since it can't find a driver). All in all good buy, but I can't connect my 2019 macbook Pro to my thunderbolt monitor with the startech adapter. Monitor does not activate. Seems to only work with Windows machines.

It just works (But upgrade your BIOS and drivers!)

Bought one back in December to use my old Apple Thunderbolt monitor with my Dell laptop. Once I went through the process of updating *ALL* the drivers and the motherboard BIOS, it worked perfectly. And then, tragedy struck. My laptop decided to give up the ghost and I opted to get a lighter HP, so I returned my Dell docking station to work and waited for the wheels of corporate bureaucracy to churn until I got a new one for my HP. It took 7 months, but I got it this past weekend. AND IT STILL WORKED! I fired it up connected to the TB Monitor and it came right up, even before updating everything (which I did). Come Monday morning (today), I have a MASSIVE 27" monitor to work off of.

Works great

I purchased the TBT3TBTADAP to connect my UAD Twin Apollo audio interface to my iMac iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) PROCESSOR 4.2 GHz Intel Core i7,16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 USB-C computer. There is.a bevy of individuals who have USB-C computers that want to use their UAD Twin Apollo's. UADcommended you guys? I bought but.......No Go? Can't rate the quality of this product because I haven't been able to get it to work and it may be "outstanding?" I'll wait to hear from you guys before commenting on the quality. Thanks!

Better than Apple

By Just Joe

I've used the Apple adapter for a few years for a CRITICAL piece of studio equipment. After a recent Windows/Thunderbolt update to accommodate TB4, the Apple adapter caused many crashes. Replaced with this after hardware manufacture suggestion, and problems corrected. This is obviously built to a better standard, or etc. Could use a slightly longer lead from the converter box to reduce tension from the port.... it's a desktop, and the lead isn't long enough for the box to reach the floor. Otherwise, no complaints.

question

will this make my new 2015 macbook work with a thunderbolt display?
Asked by: Anonymous
The 2015 MacBook has a USB-C gen 1 port. It is not Thunderbolt. You need a MacBook Pro to use Thunderbolt devices. The USB-C gen 1 port of the MacBook supports DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, and VGA using adapters.

can i use it to connect my antalope orion+ (thunderbolt) to usb c port on my asus motherboard?
Asked by: exo j.
This would fully depend on the Asus Motherboard. Note that not all USB-C ports support Thunderbolt 3. If yours does, this StarTech Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt Adapter will be compatible.

question

I'm looking at a Display that has USB C connectivity, This display can handle video and data through it when connected to a 1 port USB type C Macbook. Would I be able to get display and data from the USB C port to a thunderbolt 2 equipped Macbook with this adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
Displays with USB C connectivity (that are also not Thunderbolt 3 displays) most likely use the DisplayPort feature of USB-C, which is the same whether the source port is Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C. For your Thunderbolt 2 Macbook Pro, you should be able to use a Mini DisplayPort to USB-C cable or adapter. Thunderbolt 2 does not include USB data though. Your display with USB C connectivity may have an alternative method to receive USB data.
