Select Series USB-C HDMI Multiport Adapter
The versatility of the USB-C port means that it can perform several functions, including video output and power input. But what if you need to use a second display for extended periods of time beyond what you can expect from your laptop's battery life? With the Select Series Multiport Adapter there is no need to choose between the two! This adapter allows you to connect an external HDMI® video display to mirror your laptop's display or expand your system's desktop area, with support for resolutions up to 4K @30Hz. The USB 3.0 type-A port allows you to charge and sync mobile devices or use external drives and provides data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps. It also features a USB-C port, which you can connect to your original USB-C charger, so you can charge the battery while simultaneously using a second display and syncing your phone!
USB-C Power Port: The USB-C charging port allows you to connect your original USB-C charger, so you can charge your laptop's battery rather than draining it, while using this adapter.
Expand Your View: Connect an HDMI® display at resolutions up to 4K @30Hz to mirror your laptop's display or to expand your system's desktop area.
USB 3.0 Connectivity: The USB 3.0 type-A port allows you to connect high speed external peripherals, such as portable hard drives or flash drives, at speeds up to 5Gbps. With 2.4A of charging power, it can charge even the most power hungry mobile devices.
Portable: Small and portable, you can easily slip this adapter into your laptop case and have it ready for use wherever and whenever the need arises.
Compatible with USB-C equipped laptops, such as the Apple MacBook® and Google Chromebook™

Questions and Answers
Cons: Wish it came in a color to match the new space grey MBP's (like how Monoprice's 7 port USB hub is space grey); doesn't always drive a signal to the monitor, it seems.
Details: I love Monoprice products (affordable, great selection, always finding something new that I want to buy), so when I upgraded to a 15" new Macbook Pro and found out that I needed a bunch of new USB-C dongles, I was quite excited to find that Monoprice carries exactly what I needed at a much better prices and selection than Apple.
Picked up two of these USB-C to HDMI / USB / USB-C dongles so that I could drive a pair of Samsung UHD U28E590D monitors.
Observed that these adapters don't always deliver a signal to the monitors. I've found that I need to play around with the connection sequence - sometimes, I plug in power first (to a USB-C port directly attached to the computer - not using the USB-C port on the dongle), then add the HDMI dongle, and I'll get a signal out to the monitor. Other times, I have to connect the dongle first, then power to a separate USB-C port, in order to get an HDMI signal. Failure to play around with the connection sequence results in staring at a blank screen with the monitor telling me there's no display signal. It takes me several minutes of experimenting with the connections to get a solid signal out to the monitor so that I can be on my computing way.
In contrast, when I used to use my old Macbook Pro 15" with a generic Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter (not Monoprice), it would generate a signal 100% of the time as expected to the monitor.
Not sure if I'm doing something wrong but the "plug & play" aspect of the dongle certainly isn't quite "plug & play".
I'll still keep and use them, as when I do get them working, they do the job quite well.

Additionally the connector doesn't always make good engagement and can slip out.
HDMI 2560x1600 works great, cable dance aside.

Well this DOES work!! I got my fancy new Macbook-Pro and dumped a TON of money into it, and guess what - IT'S ONLY GOT 4 UBC-C PORTS!! lol... No old USB ports, no HDMI - NOTHING! But not to worry, Apple has a TON of adapters for sale (of course), and at TOP PRICE (of course). lol.. smh.
Well, I wanted something to let me hook my laptop to a monitor via HDMI without spending another $50 at Apple to get it smh.
Unfortunately, I heard that the cheap $8-$10 ones don't carry audio, but the write-up said that this one did carry audio. .... and BINGO - IT DOES!! :)
The video looks FANTASTIC, the sound is GREAT, and it's not cheap plastic either - it feels good & durable. I haven't used the USB or UCB-C ports yet, and haven't had it long so hopefully it will last for many years.
But all I can say for now is - SO FAR - SO GOOD! It's a great lil gadget, it's 50% less than Apple's version, and it works very well! :)
