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.

Product works as advertised
I had read reviews of this and another cable of people claiming it did not fit even with the Apple case. Rather than order online I had read reviews of this and another cable of people claiming it did not fit even with the Apple case.

Of course, they were offended at the idea that Apple would not make it compatible with their own case I as have on my iPhone 5s and iPad air.
In short, it fit perfectly. I brought it home and it works perfectly on my HDTV.
Do I wish the price were a bit cheaper? Sure, just like everything else I own with the Apple logo, so get over it. It's supply and demand. As more third party knock offs are made, perhaps you can take your chance with their junk. For now, I and others will pay the price and it works. …
