USB-C to Thunderbolt on UltraStudio Mini Monitor

PostSun Jan 07, 2018 5:20 am


I'm just getting my new iMac set up. It seems that the powers-that-be at Apple have seen fit to shuffle ports again. I no longer have mini-displayport sized Thunderbolt ports, I now have USB C sized Thunderbolt ports.

A quick web search doesn't reveal a lot of promise for my old Thunderbolt US Mini Monitor using an adapter.

Is there an adapter that will make my Mini Monitor work again?

I use a Startech Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 convertor with the BM Mini Recorder. I also use the same convertor with a Sonnet Thunderbolt II PCIe chassis with a Quad2 and Duo 2 card installed. Works good on all those devices.

The official Apple USB-C to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter will just work fine!
I have seen people stuggeling with other adapters that were cheaper and had issues.
