    Does not work after iOS 8.1.3 update

    • Written by from Sparks

    I purchased this product prior to the update and it worked pretty well. The picture wasn't amazing but it was clear and it mirrored my iPad perfectly. Sometimes my iPad would not register the adapter or it would be slow. But, I was okay with all of that until my adapter stopped working completely with the new update. Now all I get is a black screen if I plug the adapter in. I would not recommend this product until Apple comes out with an update to fix this bug.

    Horrible, Terrible, Pointless, Waste of Money.

    • Written by from Rossland

    I was reasonably excited when I saw this product available, but wasn't quite sure about the price. So far most VGA-USB cables or similar adapters will all run around the $35-60 range. I bought this expecting to be able to play games and watch movies on my larger screen, without having to use a console to do so.

    This cable is finicky. Not all TV's support the adapter.

    After plugging this adapter into my three TV's, working on NONE of them (only showing a purple screen, the TV's are no older than 4 years) I finally went to my neighbors and tried on their two TV's. This adapter worked on one Samsung 55" HD TV, but only after plugging it in/unplugging it several times, restarting the phone twice and turning the TV on/off. Even then if the phone changed angles AT ALL, the signal would cut out and not come back.

    Either I received a dud, or we all have. I'm furious right now, as this is not the first product I've bought through Apple that was overpriced and DID NOT WORK AS ADVERTISED OR EXPECTED. I wasn't able to play iPhone games on my large TV, watch movies or browse the web.

    I have bought several "duds" over the past five years, including two Classic iPods, two iPhones and now this adapter. I am now seriously considering leaving all Apple products behind and investing in other companies.

    Does the Job

    • Written by from Gravesend

    I bought the smallest lead in the world solely for streaming Netflix and Amazon prime on a larger screen, It does this to a very high standard.
    Both are full screen and the HD quality is very good.
    I took a star off as at £40, its extremely expensive!

    • Written by from New freedom

    This Hdmi lighting adapter worked like a dream for my family right until the last Apple update and it just stopped completely now we are very disappointed that we paid almost 90 dollars last year directly from the Apple Store so now what's the use.

    Wow! Just the ticket!

    • Written by from Berthoud

    I have long been looking for a way (not too expensive) to broadcast what was on my iPod Touch 5th gen. to a t.v. Tried Chromecast which worked but did not mirror everything on my iPod. Then, I discovered this little product. Plugged it into my iPod and my HDMI socket on my TV. It work very well indeed. The movie quality (mp4) and sound quality was everything I wanted it to be.

    Mirrors whatever is on my iPod. I am very well pleased indeed. Thank you Apple!

    Lightning to HDMI --- AWESOME

    • Written by from Morganton

    I love it. Works great! I took it with me to Europe so I could watch movies during down times and it worked perfect there. I was streaming in and enjoying it. Been using mine on my Mini for about 1 1/2 years now and no issues! Well worth the money if you're looking for something like this.

    Laggy video output

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Both the HDMI and VGA lightning video adapters introduce lag to video output that wasn't present with the 30 pin adapters. Because of this my old iPad3 is better for running VJAY (audio-visual performance app) than a brand new iPad Air 2. Disappointed that Apple, a company that used to be the standard for creative types, is pushing a standard like lightning adapters that can't perform well enough for artistic applications.

    Just pure awesomeness!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Speaking for the iphone 5s and up to the 6+. This adapter is pure magic. You can so far play anything your iphone throws at you through your HD tv!
    Netflix? Yes, clash of clans? You got it! Rented or owned movies, tv series..... Walking dead? Of course! All in glorious HD full screen! So far i'm glad i made the purchase. A little overpriced but good quality.
    See i wanted to get the apple TV but my xbox one can do most of the stuff apple tv throws at you. This adapter will make your dilemas easier between buying a Apple TV or not.
    So far i haven't had any issues described by the other reviews. I've had this miracle of a portal for over a year and still using it to the fullest.

    Had to trim plastic down to fit my case, but overall it's a similar experience to the Lightning to 30 pin adaptor.

    Disappointed in extreme

    • Written by from Emsworth

    I project through VGA connection via iPad or iPhone, and I get a full screen size from my OHP on full zoom.
    I project exactly the same item using lightning converter to HDMI and I get a nice picture, but half the size.
    It seems from the posts here that that is that. Such a shame.
    But if anyone can help?

    Works Well With iPhone 6 Plus

    • Written by from COTTAGE GROVE

    Saw an article in Yahoo about this adapter, bought one and tried it out on my mother-in-law's 60" Samsung TV. A little pricey ($49 + tax) but worked great. Was nice for iTunes, photos & videos with sound. Her eyesight isn't very good (she's 94) so this was much better than when we would show her stuff on an iPad. Will be getting these for my kids for Xmas as they have iPhones and iPads.

    DO NOT BUY

    • Written by from Wyoming

    It's a weste of money, I used it only five times and it stopped working. I took it back because I thought it was a malfunctioning product . Came home and tried to use the new one and same things. Apple should refund for selling such an expensive product and does not work.

    Works fine

    • Written by from Singapore

    Got this adapter for 2 weeks and still using it. Currently, I have used lightning digital AV adapter to connect iPad Air and Samsung smart TV, working fine. It depends on the program running from iPad to show full screen at Samsung smart TV. If the output from original file could not support, then there will not be any full screen on TV. Likewise to the HD resolution too. iPad is charging fine while connected through digital AV adapter.

    I found the solution for "Mode not supported"

    • Written by from Massillon

    If you get the "Mode not supported" message when you try to hook up this adapter and HDMI cable to your TV, don't panic! After Crutchfield (where I bought my TV) assured me that it SHOULD work, I did some experimenting and found the solution! There are four HDMI jacks on the back of my TV, but only one of them says HDMI/DVI. I have no idea what that means, but that's the jack that works! So it makes sense now that the reviews here and on Amazon are a mixture of "Works great" and "Doesn't work!" If you happen to plug it into the right jack it does work beautifully. If you just put it in a regular HDMI jack, no good. So give that a try. I hope it works!
