Do not expect 1080p HDTV quaility with this DV HDMI
I was disappointed with the 720p resolution I got from mirroring the "Retina" display and THEN read the Apple Web site.

Beware if you want to stream on demand!
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. …

Stopped working after less than a dozen uses
I got less than a dozen uses out of the Lightning Digital AV Adapter before it quit working. As an apple user since the mid-80s, I got less than a dozen uses out of the Lightning Digital AV Adapter before it quit working. As an apple user since the mid-80s, all I can say is this is yet another example of the demise of Apple quality. Well it was marvelous while it lasted! …

Worse Than My First Betamax Player In 1982!
I bought this adaptor cable - which, at £40 works out at £10 per inch - in order to watch TV and flms streamed over the Net from A I bought this adaptor cable - which, at £40 works out at £10 per inch - in order to watch TV and flms streamed over the Net from Amazon Prime Instant Video via my iPad Retina through a Yamaha RX-V671 A/V decoder on to my LG HDTV. I had been trying to use my laptop but in both Chrome and Mozilla there was continuous buffering and stuttering. Before purchasing, I checked with Apple and Amazon who both stated the product would work in 1080p with surround sound. Well, the picture displayed on the screen when "browsing" is reasonably High Def but only in a reduced-size 4:3 ratio in the centre of the TV. However, once you select a programme through the Amazon Prime App and hit "play", the screen expands to 16:9 but with all the definition of a muddy puddle. All movement becomes just a confusion of pixels which, on my 47" screen, are at least quarter of an inch square. Basically, it's unwatchable. So, switch to Safari instead of the Amazon app - no difference except now we are back to continuous buffering again. With a 14Mb/s internet speed I should be getting good quality video - instead I feel like I have been transported back 30 years to the foggy dawn of Betamax accompanied by the cat sitting on the "Pause" button on the remote every 10 seconds. This really is marketing at it's most cynical. This is 2014, this is not rocket science, but I feel thoroughly cheated. …

Brought new life to our TV
Simple product, and does exactly what it says - streams 1080p from our iPad Air. We connected immediately to our 6 year old Vizio Simple product, and does exactly what it says - streams 1080p from our iPad Air. We connected immediately to our 6 year old Vizio TV and haven't had an issue after 2 months of use. We streamed the entire World Cup in HD from our iPad, and we've just started a Netflix account. This has brought life back to our TV since we don't have cable. I'm not sure what all the poor reviews are about. Research your device to see what resolution you'll get. $50 is pricey, but when compared to a cable package? Come on.
Reminder: at this point, iPads put out 4:3 ratio. This means when directly mirroring your iPad home screen, your HDTV will be seriously cropped on all sides. However, when streaming video formats the iPad recognizes (Netflix, World Cup from Univision, etc.) the iPad outputs full 16:9 ratio, filling your screen in HD. You want one of these! …
