Unaware of limitations before purchasing
I teach high school and thought the vga iPad dock connector would allow me to project everything I see while using the iPad, but a las there are severe limitations to which applications will show on the classroom LCD projector.
I wish I had known this before purchasing the connector. The Apple Store description says the connector will display slideshows and movies, but I didn't realize that was it... …

Sending mine back because it doesn't enable mirroring.
Once again I get suckered into buying an overpriced iPhone or iPad AV connector because Apple cleverly omits the fact that it only works with certain apps. Don't they realize that people buy these accessories mostly to do demos of apps, or to mirror whatever's on their device's screen? This basic scenario does not work with this adapter. I found that it only works when playing video, or if you're a developer and you write special code in your app to support an external screen. So buyer beware... …

I am in a school here, where we use these in the classroom to project. Unfortunately, teachers keep wondering why they can't get theirs to work. Well, the cables look perfect, but something inside them gets loose or jarred, and the connection between the iPad and the VGA breaks.
If this products gets a decent amount of use, it appears to break. For a $30 product, I would hope for a better lifetime on these. May as well be a $10 knockoff if I should expect to replace them quickly. …
