    What happened?

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This gadget does one thing very well, it disappoints. Spent four grueling days researching and preparing a keynote presentation on my Mac Pro. It was my intention to use my iPad2 connected to a projector's VGA input for my class presentation. It worked for a few minutes then the image disappeared. After several embarrassing minutes standing in front of my class,trying to make this thing work I stopped trying. Please fix this lousy gadget, or stop claiming that it was designed by Apple.

    A complete FAIL!!!

    • Written by from Bogotá

    I used this adapter for nearly three weeks at work (a school, no less) mirroring everything from my Ipad2 to my students on a large 23" Samsung LCD. Suddenly, it stopped working and everytime I want to use it my Ipad displays a "This accesory not supported by Ipad" message, and I can now show NOTHING and the frustration is paramount among all of us. So what does Apple have to say about this? I expect a solution!

    Come on Apple

    • Written by from Sparks

    Professionals are using DMI and HDMI cables. What is the deal with going back to analog? Get us the adapter that will sync with LCD's, presentation projectors, etc... Seems very odd, maybe I just don't understand. Why you would limit your product to old school graphics?

    BTW, causes LCD's to shimmer once and awhile.

    Worked better than I thought.

    • Written by from Corona

    I purchased this to allow me to show information from my iPad 2 onto the screen for my students to see. Based on the reviews I didn't expect much, but to my surprise it allowed everything to be projected. Games, grades, drawing programs, you name it... except movies bought from iTunes. I'm not happy with that, but this product was well worth the cost.

    Haven't been able to get this thing to work on my iPad with *anything*, including Keynote. I already knew that the adapter wouldn't work outside of certain applications at the time of purchase.

    The lack of instructions might be part of the whole "it just works" approach, but the flaw arises when "it doesn't work."

    Very disappointed. Not giving up ... yet.

    I didn't expect it to work too well after reading all of the poor reviews, but it looks like it doesn't work at all. What a fun surprise! Glad it was cheap.

    Very Useful

    • Written by from New Hyde Park

    This product is great and works exactly as advertised. There are several complaints on this page about it not mirroring the screen of the iPad. These complaints would be valid if Apple didn't say Video Mirroring Only Supported on the iPad 2, right underneath where it says what the package contains in the product description. People need to read the information that is there.

    VGA connector

    • Written by from Schwenksville

    I had just recently bought this device. I have an iPod touch 4th gen and an iPad 2. The via adapter automatically adjusts the video to the best quality the tv or projector can handle. The quality the adapter puts out is stunning for VGA. The iPad mirrors almost everything you can see. The iPod only puts out the video from YouTube and your iPods library. The iPod supported 720p at it's maximum. The iPad can support up to 1080p maximum. I also bought a 60 inch led tv, and the quality from the iPad looked great. Love this product. One thing apple could improve on in the next line up could be a VGA adapter with a digital audio output.

    Works great on iPad 2

    • Written by from leonardo

    This is great it allows full mirroring on the iPad 2 and is great for presentations you need to show in class. Works great on monitors and projectors. Im sure anyone with an iPad 2 will enjoy. Exept for one flaw, when you go to play a movie bought from iTunes it is not supported. Other than that great buy.

    The is a great adapter for the iPad2 but it gets a bad rap.

    • Written by from Grass Valley

    Most of the negative reviews if this adapter are for the iPad1 and do not apply to the iPad2. The iPad2 has full mirroring of the screen display and can be used to show TV, youtube, and movies projected to a TV screen or computer monitor via the VGA input in full screen mode at 1080p. You can select 4x3 or 16x9 display as appropriate. It will work with projectors as well. It does not do sound but you can easily use the headphone jack for that.

    This is the cheapest adapter will full video functionality for an iPad 2 and also the most versatile. VGA input is on almost every screen these days.

    Simple and Effective

    • Written by from Homestead

    A great way to get your iPad content up where it can be seen. Attach to a VGA cable and display and you are ready to go. Great for making presentations where you have a display but don't want to be bothered with a projector. I've used mine on TV's, displays, and projectors and never had a problem.

    wouldnt buy again

    • Written by from Lawton

    I bought this for one of my classes. Sure, the adapter worked but it is over priced. I also couldnt get the screws of the vga cable to stay in so during my presentation I had to use one hand to hold the to parts together. I wont be buying another one.

    Awesome for the iPad2

    • Written by from Marietta

    This adapter is awesome. Works as advertised. Let me say again iPad 2. I hooked it up to the projector in a conference room and could view everything on it. My buddy has an iPad (original) and not so good. He couldn't get anything to be viewed except videos.

    I used the adapter for a presentation I did at a conference last weekend and it worked perfectly. Easy to use and worth it.

    Mirroring works fine on my iPad 2

    • Written by from Cheltenham

    I already ordered this before reading the reviews, but when I read them, most of them were talking about how they couldn't mirror EVERYTHING that was showing on the iPad screen, but I just decided to test it out anyway. I used this to connect my iPad to a projector, and it did exactly what I expected it to do - it mirrored everything on my iPad 2 perfectly!
    It also works with my Sony BRAVIA TV which also has a VGA Port, and again, it mirrors everything perfectly.
    I'm not sure why other reviews are saying that it only mirrors videos and power points and supported apps, but maybe that's just for the first gen iPad.

    Works as advertised (read the fine print)

    • Written by from Sherbrooke

    I bought this to hook up to projectors and displays for presentation duties over at client’s places with my iPad2. Works great and impresses a lot by itself. But read the fine print! Mirroring is not available with every device it works with...

    I used this with iphone 4 before and it worked (only for tv-out like photos, ipod videos and powerpoint slideshow), but later it doesn't work anymore. I think after I updated my ios to the latest version, this thing was really useless to me. So up till now, I'm still waiting if Apple will update the ios again but with this issue fixed. =(
