    StarTech TBT3TBTADAP reviews

    Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt Adapter (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Build quality is good - lightweight. I recently bought a G-RAID w/thunderbolt 1. I mistakenly thought that my mini display port was a thunderbolt port. I realized that I also have a thunderbolt 3 (usb type-c) port so I went online, searching for a thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 1/2 adapter. Interestingly enough, there aren't many adapters online - 2-3 brands. I was a little cautious of buying this one because the Amazon reviews of this exact product doesn't match up to the B&H Photo reviews, but I was desperate to try. The item came in good condition. I plugged the adapter to my G-RAID and then into my Dell laptop - works perfectly! I was able to format my G-RAID for Windows with no problem and I don't notice any loss in data transfer speed! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an adapter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works I use this with an Acer Predator and a MOTU 1248 Audio Interface. Because it's an adapter there's not much to say, it should work or it doesn't. That being said after initially plugging it in I had problems getting my interface to show up. Turns out that the Predator needed a firmware update for it's Thunderbolt, which was not totally straight forward. The reason I mention the difficulty here (I should write a review for the Predator too) is simply to let others know you will probably need to jump through some hoops to get Thunderbolt to work on your PC.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for Presonus Firestudio Project owners I use a Presonus Firestudio Project, which uses a Firewire connection, in my home studio. Of course, Firewire is a dead standard but I had seen that Apple had a converter to go from Firewire to Thunderbolt, so when I ordered my ASUS Republic of Gamers computer from B&H of course I ordered the Apple converter too. Unfortunately what I didn't realize was that the Thunderbolt end was the older, larger connector, and the computer had a USB-C/Thunderbolt connector that's a different size. So I still couldn't make the last mile. I ordered this converter, and it works perfectly. A couple of words of caution, though. It didn't work right away, not because of the converter but because of quirks in the Presonus hardware and their Studio One software. If you're looking at this for the same reason, be sure to remember to install Universal Control off the disk that came with the hardware first. Then download the update. It might take a few restarts to get the computer to see the Firestudio Project and get the light to turn blue. Once you've done that, if you're using Studio One and it doesn't show up automatically you can manually select it as the audio device. Then you'll be good to go. This converter has been a lifesaver. I can now record again, and I don't have to try to talk my wife into letting me buy a new audio interface!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! Dell Alienware 17 to Apple Thunderbolt Display! That's right, this adapter allows you to connect your Dell Alienware 17 computer (Thunderbolt 3 adapter) to an Apple 27 Thunderbolt display...and it WORKS!!! I searched all over for something that would work, and this kidding. The cheapo brands out there will NOT work, trust me I checked them all out. B&H always has the cheapest price + fast, free shipping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from StarTeck TB3-toTB2 The device is in a system of an ASUS Z170 Motherboard with an ASUS ThunderboltEX 3 card via USB-C to the StarTeck TB3-toTB2 converter to a LaCie TB2 external HHD. I don't know where the problem is, but all the LaCie drive does is quickly flash the power light. When the LaCie drive is connected via the USB interface the power light does not flash. I will be sending this eMail to the venders to get their suggestions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked out of the box Did what the Apple the Apple adapter didn't. Allowed me to connect my Antelope Audio Orion TB Audio interface with ASRock Fatality ITX mobo with no issues. Apple version I had to replug to recognize interface with my PC. No issues with this adapter.
