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.

Works just fine.
I don't know what the problem for other recent reviewers on iOS 8.3 is, but it's working fine for me. I just got it for my recentl I don't know what the problem for other recent reviewers on iOS 8.3 is, but it's working fine for me. I just got it for my recently bought iPad mini 3. I also have the iPhone 6 Plus, and it works ok with both.
I have been enjoying gaming on the iPad like I never did on any phone, including the bigger iPhone. The size is just right, not small and not too big for portability. But I wanted to port the games to the bigger screen when I'm home (the 50in TV).
Mind you, I have the apple TV, but the lag on it when mirroring via AirPlay, makes it unusable for gaming.
Enter this Lightning to HDMI adapter. The lag is noticeable better, although still there, but kept to a minimum. Now I can play my favorite racing game Asphalt 8 on the biggest screen in the house!
Mirroring, means it's the SAME image from your iOS device to your TV or monitor. The iPad has a different shape than a TV or monitor, meaning it won't fill the full screen to the 16:9 aspect ratio from the 4:3 of the iPad. I wish there would be some way to do it once you start mirroring. It DOES it for video though, either on my TV or even on my monitor.
The iPhones & iPod (5 and after), do have the 16:9 aspect ratio, so the apps that let you rotate to landscape, will be able to fill up the TV or monitor screen, well, almost. I say almost, because at least on my TV, it doesn't. There's a small frame like space left out. But it does fill it up through AirPlay mirroring on the apple TV oddly enough.
Apple, please fix this. I know you can make it so it's all full screen across devices, I know you can. …

iOS 8.3 broke it
When are you going to fix this or announce a refund for this problem. I have been a faithful Apple customer since 198 Hi Apple,
When are you going to fix this or announce a refund for this problem. I have been a faithful Apple customer since 1984.
I'm a grad student that teaches a couple of classes a semester. Using Keynote or Powerpoint with an iPad Air was awesome, I didn't have to lug around a laptop anymore. But it was too good to last. I guess that would cut into your MacBook sales.
It's strange because it still works with my iPhone 5s, but it doesn't work with the iPad.
Let us know if we can return them for a refund. Or is a class-action lawsuit necessary? Or contacting the NY Times? Or Wall Street Journal?
Very Unhappy Customer (minus $50) …
