    I was disappointed with the 720p resolution I got from mirroring the "Retina" display and THEN read the Apple Web site.

    It is excessively overpriced for what it is and performs poorly. This is an absolute insult from apple.

    I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. Be aware that none of these applications will work when connected via HDMI to a display. You will receive a notification that states the app does not support.

    Possibly ignorance on my part, but to me, this was a big plus point of buying the adapter in the first place. I contacted 4od and received the below response when I asked why there was no support:

    "Unfortunately the reason Airplay no longer works is that we don't have the rights to broadcast all our shows using Airplay, so this feature is not enabled."

    Hope this helps.

  • Seriously over priced - Apple TV much better solution

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I tried a friend's adapter, but just could not justify spending 3x what it is actually worth to me. In the end I bought Apple TV w I tried a friend's adapter, but just could not justify spending 3x what it is actually worth to me. In the end I bought Apple TV which gave me all the functionality including BBC iPlayer plus a lot more, for not much more than the cost of the adapter. It is better to be able to connect wirelessly, without the hassle of cables and my experience of Apple lightning cables is that they don't last that long.

    I bought this so I could watch BT sport from my iPad on to my TV. Unfortunately it mirrors a picture that is only half the size of I bought this so I could watch BT sport from my iPad on to my TV. Unfortunately it mirrors a picture that is only half the size of the TV screen i.e.picture in the centre of the TV. At a cost of £40 I want more than that. Plan to take back and get a refund.

    I bought this on July 18 of this year & did not open it & use until August 1st. It worked well for a short amount of time & now su I bought this on July 18 of this year & did not open it & use until August 1st. It worked well for a short amount of time & now suddenly it does not work. It has the quality of a dollar store charger. For the price it's a real rip off for something that lasted less than 2 weeks long.
