    Past bad reviews are missing the mark!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    There has been a lot of negative reviews about this VGA adaptor, saying it can't be used to mirror iphone or ipad screens, not so! It works just fine with iphone4S and 2nd gen Ipad. does eveything it is supposed to. I hooked it up to a monitor with external speakers and plugged in the VGA cable and adaptor and plugged in the speakers to the earphone jack on my Iphone and it worked beautifully! Don't let the negative reviews deter you. It might not work on older equipment, but IPhone 4s or newer it works just as you would expect!

    Works with iOS 6.0 and up

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    Before anyone else writes that this adapter doesn't work with iOS 6 or higher, please read this:
    1. DO NOT connect the VGA adapter to your apple device until you have done the following.
    2. Connect the VGA cable to the monitor or projector FIRST.
    3. Make sure the monitor or projector is connected to a power source and TURNED ON.
    4. Connect the adapter to the VGA cable.
    5. NOW connect your apple device to the VGA adapter.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing twice and expect to get different results.

    This works perfectly!
    To Those of you who have had troubles...
    It clearly states video mirroring is ONLY SUPPORTED WITH IPHONE 4s AND IPAD 2 AND LATER!!! IPHONE 4 and iPad 1 only support VIDEO OUT( slide shows pictures videos, etc)
    You can (and my teachers at school do!) use it to showcase apps and everything your device is showing. It simply has to be on an iphone4s or an iPad 2 or later. TRY READING DESCRIPTIONS BEFORE BAGGING ON A PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE, HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT. THANK YOU!!

    It works for my iPad 3

    • Written by from Newbury Park

    After reading all the negative reviews, I thought it might not do what I needed it to do. But, then I realized that the negative reviews were mostly about older iPads. The product description says that the adapter will allow mirroring of the iPad with the VGA projector. And it does. I will admit that some apps are not quite sure what to do with the mirroring. One pinball game only shows up on the projector and not on the iPad itself. However, most everything I wanted to demonstrate played on the projector and iPad 3 at the same time. So, I believe the mirroring does work.

    Simple, compact, and just perfect!

    • Written by from trout creek

    This 30 pin adapter works flawlessly with my ipad and projector, the video mirroring is exactly what i thought it would be. Well worth the $35.00. I use it for keynote presentations at school and works just as it should. The piece is not complicated at all, plug it in and within seconds you are connected. Regarding some other reviews stating the devise is not video mirroring, perhaps you are not aware that video mirroring is only available with ipad 2 + and iPhone 4S+. Thanks again apple for making a super simple, easy to use accesories for my ipad!

    Business Travel

    • Written by from Lake Ridge

    I bought this so i did not have to lug around my work Dell PC. Now I just travel with my Airbook and tunnel back to the Dell or transfer my files or presentations I need onto my Airbook. I had a presentation to give at a corporate retreat, i knew they would have VGA projectors. So I purchased this and it worked like a charm. HINT: Once you have it plugged in connected to the projector you will need to go to display and refresh, this might mean even unplugging the adapter and inserting it again. Other then that worked with no problem.

    Ignore the bogus ios6 reviews

    • Written by from Ooltewah

    These folks don't know what they are talking about. I have ios 6 with the new iPad (3). It worked great!! I tried video mirroring and video etc. went to best buy to test first since they let me try it and they have a no cost restock fee if it doesn't work. Most of these folks on here with negative ios 6 reviews are not posting what they are running on it. I was tempted to listen but don't!!! It works great!! However it may be a case of a updated av adapter, There seems to be different models of the av adapter maybe? Anyways enjoy folks!!!

    Works perfectly!!

    • Written by from Winona

    I'm not having a problem with it working on my iPad 2 with iOS 6. It didn't initially work because I plugged in the 30-pin connector BEFORE plugging in the VGA cable from my 32" monitor. However, disconnecting and reconnecting it to my iPad while the cable was still plugged in got me the result I expected - full mirroring and even plays movies from apps outside of the iOS Videos app such as Vudu, Netflix, etc! I'm quite pleased!

    VGA Adapter All it Should Be

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    I purchased the VGA adapter for my iPad 2 and a data projector. I wanted to be able to show others how to use the iPad and all the apps. It worked perfectly from the very start. Every app showed on the screen clear and sharp. I did not try to play movies that were converted to the iPad. But photos, apps, settings, mail, everything showed beautifully without any effort.

    Works great

    • Written by from Fort Collins

    I'm using this with an iPad 2, fully updated to iOS 5.1.1 and ALL apps (including DirecTV, videos purchased on iTunes, YouTube, Safari, Angry Birds, etc...) work just fine when connected to a monitor, widescreen TV, or projector. Keep in mind that it may not adjust the resolution to fit the TV so you might have black bars on the sides and such. DirecTV and videos seem capable of scaling to 16:9 aspect ratio of the TV.

    The plug does come out pretty easily so it's best if you can just leave the iPad sitting flat on a stationary surface. VGA does not transmit sound so if you want to watch videos, you'll have to plan ahead or listen through the iPad.

    I've also used this with an iPod Touch 4th Gen and the results are the same as with the iPad2.

    VGA connector...awsome

    • Written by from Austin

    I got this connector few days back. And it is wonderful. My displays (acer HD 3D projector, Samsung LCD) are acting like mirrors to my iPad. What i am seeing on my iPad is displaying on the screen. But all the videos are playing only on the screen not on iPad.

    VGA Adapter works well...however

    • Written by from Victorville

    I purchased the VGA adapter for my new iPAD to show downloaded movies that a relevant to my class. The iPAD was projected on the video projector with no problem. However, when trying to display the video, an error message appeared CANNOT PLAY MOVIE: The connected display is not authorized to play protected movies. I tried several iPAD movies and received the same messages. I then tried to play the ultraviolet movies that were downloaded and they played perfectly. I contacted service and they seemed unaware of this problem. Unfortunately, if you read internet blogs, the problem has been around for a couple of years. Apple also states that iPAD will display movies on video projectors with the VGA adapter, but does not state clearly that copywrite protected movies downloaded from iTunes will not play. =(

    It works great

    • Written by from Yakima

    The VGA dongle mirrors everything on an iPad2 and iPhone4s. So far I have Successfully tried with connections to a 55 inch TV and computer monitors. I haven't connected to a projector yet, but the success on the TV indicates that using a projector will work equally well.

    Love this adapter. I use my iPad and iPhone to present keynotes for class. Teachers are very well impressed. Super portable, goodbye desktops and laptops! If you need to play videos or any audio contact, use the HDMI adapter don't use the VGA.

    Does exactly what it should

    • Written by from portland

    The reviews are misleading. When somone rates the product low, they are complaining about the limitations of their old devices. If you have a late model iPad or iPhone (I've tested both), this adapter is awesome. It allows you to show your iPhone screen on a monitor or projector or any other display with the VGA input. Videos, web sites, presentations, documents, photos...it all works flawlessly.

    As long as you have an updated device, this cable is super cool.

    I know some r upset, but read carefully before buying. This will only mirror screen if u are using newest devices, but if u do, it's great and seamless. It only works with certain applications if u r running older devices.
