  • Do not expect 1080p HDTV quaility with this DV HDMI

    2.0 out of 5 stars

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

    Check Apple Web site first! Do not miss the IPad (4th gen) tech spec ;)

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

    Works well at mirroring iPad 4th generation and iPhone 5 via HDMI cable. Tried it with photos and video and worked well.

  • Works Well Depending On Your Apple Device

    While I agree that it is slightly overpriced (most Apple accessories are) it works extremely well depending on your Apple device. While I agree that it is slightly overpriced (most Apple accessories are) it works extremely well depending on your Apple device. I highly recommend clicking on the device you have on the bottom of Lightning Digital AV Adapter main store page and look at the video output in the tech specs section before purchasing. What you see there is the max you'll get. The iPhone 5s, 5c, and the iPad Air all say "Video mirroring and video out support: Up to 1080p through Lightning Digital AV Adapter and Lightning to VGA Adapter (adapters sold separately)"
    It's a must for streaming online video to a TV as trying to alternatively "double stream" from the internet to an Apple TV usually has great lag. I've had no problems on these devices and the quality has been great! If your TV or upscales it's even better.

  • Stopped working after less than a dozen uses

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    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!

  • 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!
