    Apple MMEL2AM/A reviews

    Thunderbolt 3 Male to Thunderbolt 2 Female Adapter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cable Works I use this to interface my new Focusrite Clarett 2Pre (Thunderbolt 2) to my new 2016 MacBook Pro (Thunderbolt 3) for audio processing. I am not sure if this is an active or passive adapter but it works for my purposes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used to connect to my Thunderbolt 3 harddrive I used this for my 24TB Thunderbolt 3 harddrive to connect to my Thunderbolt 2 iMac. All is well so far!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will NOT Work! Unfortunately I have to return this and get the StarTech version because this adapter does not work with a PC. Running windows 10. Motherboard has fully supported, native thunderbolt 3 but the adapter won’t pass signal. Using a PreSonus Quantum TB2 interface. Presonus recommends the star tech as I just found out. Stupid adapter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Mac & Old Peripherals? Get this. I have Firewire 800 (IEEE 1394b) drives and a new iMacPro. I connect the drive to a Firewire 800 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter. ( Then I connect that adapter to this Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter. It's not elegant, but I've not had any problems with this arrangement (I'm sure Apple will create one in a future OS upgrade.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use to connect new Thunderbolt3 Mac laptops I bought both the Apple Thunderbolt (TB) 2 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and the Apple TB 3 Male to TB 2 Female Adapter for use with a 2017 MacBook Pro (MBP). This MBP has four Thunderbolt (TB) 3 ports but no inbuilt ethernet (or Firewire) ports. I prefer the security of a wired connection and the MUCH faster file transfers speed of GigaBit ethernet to the MBP's normal wi-fi connection. TB2 and TB3 connectors are different sizes. Therefore, to use the ethernet adapter with the TB3 ports on my MBP, I had to buy both adapters and connect them in series with my ethernet cable. It looks kludged, but it works fine. By the way, I also use the TB3 to TB2 adapter with an Apple Thunderbolt To Firewire(FW) Adapter to connect my Firewire devices to the 2017 MBP. The product description for the TB to FW adapter did not specify that the TB3 to TB2 adapter was required for connection to the TB3 connections of current MBPs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yes it works but I hate that you need it. Also it doesnt work reverse. So you can't plug this in to a USB c external drive and then attach that to your mac pro. Because it needs to be powered from the USB C side. Unfortunate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well for my Application I use my 2017 iMac for music composition and recording. I wanted to connect a fast USB 3.0/Lightning hard drive to be online with the iMac all the time to use as a dedicated hard drive for music recording. I have a USB audio interface and MIDI keyboard controller connected all the time to the iMac and I found that the four iMac USB host ports were completely occupied when doing a Time Machine backup to another USB 3.0 external hard drive, so I wanted to move my dedicated music hard drive (G-Technology G Drive Mobile 1 TB USB 3.0/Lightning drive) to a Lightning 3 port on the iMac. I wanted to utilize a Lightning 3 port and also to free up a USB 3.0 host port. The Apple Thunderbolt 3 Male to Thunderbolt 2 Female Adapter allows me to do just that. The adapter powers the Lightning drive and provides fast I/O with no fuss.
