    It works great!

    • Written by from Brookings

    I read what everyone else wrote. They just decided to soon that it did not work but it does!
    I downloaded an app called VGA Expedition which mirrors and it is a browser with Bookmarks. I think it was .99 cents. I can see anything and everything with that app while plugged into my projector. Without it you can see videos, movies from Netflix and Keynote presentations. Add the app and you can see anything and everything you want!!

    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.

    Good product, but know its design limitations

    • Written by from Provo

    Despite many reviews, this is a good product & does it's job well. The issue is lack of information, which Apple needs to correct. VGA out is NOT global. It will not simply output a mirror of what happens on the screen; this isn't what it was designed to do.
    It is up to each app to either use the VGA out or not, and how it is used. Presentation style apps won't show things like the keyboard, etc via the VGA out connector, as a business presentation has no use for that.
    As long as you note that the output is on a "per app" basis, this is a good product.

    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!!

    iOS 4.3 & iPad 2

    • Written by from Seattle

    The Apple VGA Adapter works seamlessly with my iPad 2. All the previous reviews no longer apply. I have my iPad 2 mirroring any and all applications using this VGA adapter. Of course, the only limitations (since it's a VGA output only) is no audio and depending on the screen, you'll get "black bars" on the left/right of image because the widescreen limitation can process correctly on most TVs or Projectors, but these are minimal. What you see on your iPad is what you see on the screen AND THAT's ALL WHAT I ORIGINALLY WANTED from this product.

    Works now!!!!!

    • Written by from Bergenfield

    In many of the previous reviews people were calling this accessory a waste of money. Many of the issues that people mention are no longer true. As of yesterday I updated my apps in which the VGA Adapter to the iPad now supports netflix, keynote, and even my remote desktop app Jump desktop. If you have a need for veiwing your iPad (APPS) on a screen go get your self the adapter and then have the app developers make their aplications support video out. ENJOY!!!

    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.

    With an iPad 2, video mirroring is great

    • Written by from College Station

    When you plug this into an iPad 2, everything you see on your iPad you see on the screen. Great for videos, NetFlix, Keynote, and others.

    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!

    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!

    I love this Adapter!

    • Written by from Bowler

    I just bought an iPad 2 along with this adapter. It is wonderful. At our school we have been showing our students how to use a certain app or how to navigate the device by placing the (iPad/iPod) on top of an Elmo projector. It certainly has been difficult lugging everything around and setting it all up just to demo. With this little device I hooked one end to the projector cable and the other end to the iPad and it just works!!!! All the apps display beautifully on our Smartboards! Though it doesn't connect with the touch portion on the SmartBoard, the kids can always come up to the device and touch and make their selections. I am also currently working on connecting some sound cables to both. I am HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY! Thank you Apple for listening to your customers! :-)

    I have noticed that many people assume that this will mirror on the iPad. This is true...but only for 2nd and 3rd generation iPads. I repeat: THE FIRST GENERATION IPAD IS NOT CAPABLE OF MIRRORING. Only buy this cord for mirroring purposes if you own a 2nd or 3rd generation iPad.

    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.

    Great for iPad 2

    • Written by from Grant

    This works great on iPad 2. As soon as you plug in, your iPad screen is on your TV. I could run most of my apps, but not all. We watched I am Legend last night on via my iPad 2 on our big screen TV. Looked better than my DVD player!

    However, I bought this adapter when I had an iPad 1 and it did not work. I knew I would eventually get iPad 2 so kept it and am so glad I did!

    Only wish...iPad remote control! Had to run to iPad by the TV to pause!

    Works great. As advertised. I have an iPad2 and was using this to mirror through a projector to a college class. All apps. No problem. Nay sayers really ought to read more about a product before they buy it and claim it doesn't work.

    Works GREAT! iPad 2 = 100% Mirroring.

    • Written by from Surrey

    I was not sure about this after reading a few reviews that were casting a shadow on it, but I had a meeting and needed to show a KEYNOTE on the big screen from my iPad2.

    Instant Set Up: Plugged the VGA Adapter into the iPad2 then the projector and it immediately worked.

    100% Mirroring: KEYNOTE came off perfect and after the meeting I played with every other app I have...Games, YouTube, Video, E-Mail... you name it, it was on the big screen!!

    Works like a charm!! My biggest issue is that everyone in the office keeps wanting to borrow it and "forgetting" to bring it back! If you need to project, buy it, it will do exactly what you want it to.

    ipad vga adapter

    • Written by from folsom

    It shows every app, every screen, basically everything it needs to show! I use my ipad in my 3rd grade classroom and need this adapter to show the kids what to do and how to work things. WARNING: if you go to show a video, make sure you close out of that app before ding anything else, otherwise you will have no video. It simply works!

    Great for Pulpit Ministry!

    • Written by from Wheelersburg

    As a pastor, I am more than pleased with the ease of connectivity to an LCD projector for pulpit ministry. This adapter makes it easy to just plug my iPad in and have immediate connectivity for Keynote presentations. Much easier (and more functional than) the previous mode of presentation (PC netbook).

    Accessory Works

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I just purchased this accessory tonight and it works great with my iPad 2. I agree JV from Portland in not listening and not agreeing with those having problems and leaving a 2-star rating. Those who have problems should READ BEFORE THEY PURCHASE or ask a salesperson for assistance that is what they are there for.
