Ratings & Reviews
Don't give bad review because no audio. VGA has never supported audio.
While Kenneth G. is right, he's mistaken in giving it only 3 stars. VGA does not and has never supported audio. It is your fault i While Kenneth G. is right, he's mistaken in giving it only 3 stars. VGA does not and has never supported audio. It is your fault if you buy this thinking it has the same functionality as HDMI. It does exactly what it's supposed to, display high definition video. That is all. It's like buying a 60hz television and giving it a low rating because it isn't 3D. 5 stars. …

I purchased the VGA adapter to determine whether it would be useful for classroom instructors. It works seamlessly, allowing viewe I purchased the VGA adapter to determine whether it would be useful for classroom instructors. It works seamlessly, allowing viewers to see everything on the ipad: apps, safari, camera, everything. I appreciate that the projector recognizes it with no fuss whatsoever.

Doesn't not work with protected movies
I bought this so that I could watch purchased TV shows with my iPad 4 connected to my NEC Multimedia projector. It's an older proj I bought this so that I could watch purchased TV shows with my iPad 4 connected to my NEC Multimedia projector. It's an older projector that does not support HDMI. However, despite the description for the VGA adapter that says you can watch movies and shows on TVs and projectors, it does NOT work. When I play the show I purchased from iTunes, I am given a message that says "THE CONNECTED DISPLAY IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO PLAY PROTECTED MOVIES." I get the same error message when I connect my computer monitor to the adapter.
Perhaps the description of this product should be changed to say that you can watch movies and shows on TVs and Projectors--EXCEPT the ones you buy from iTunes? I feel that Apple is sending me the message that I should get my content from torrents rather than buying it from iTunes. Are there Apple-branded projectors or monitors that will support this adapter? What's the point of having a VGA adapter for your device if you cannot watch iTunes content that you purchased?! …

This adapter was provided at a hotel where I was presenting so I used it instead of Air Server and it worked perfectly. No delay in response like with AirServer, and easy plug and play use. I will be purchasing one of these to use for all my future presentations. …
