    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Lincoln University

    Works perfectly! I can show Keynote presentations and files via GoodReader on the projector at work, and with the iPad 2 it'll mirror nearly any app as well. The original iPad doesn't have mirror capability but certain apps do support the secondary display (Keynote, GoodReader, Atomic Borwser, YouTube to name a few).
    Doesnt seem to use much, if any any, additional battery to drive the secondary display, either.
    I'm very pleased. 5 stars.

    Program authors can make it work

    • Written by from Pacific City

    Apple makes an API (interface code) available to App programmers. If they include this API in their program, the VGA Adapter will project that program (not the full screen or the iPad home screen, etc) to a large screen or through a projector. Why it's not universally available I couldn't tell you, but it easy to add this feature to a program. Email the app developers and ask them to add this feature.

    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.

    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.

    On iPad 2 it worked like charm

    • Written by from Bellaire

    I'm guessing the problems highlighted by other reviewers are for the original iPad. On my iPad 2, this product worked perfectly.

    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.

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

    iPad VGA adapter

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I was ready to write a bad review because I could not get the VGA adapter to work with my LCD projector. After doing some trouble shooting I replaced the VGA cable that came with the projector with one I got with my flat screen LCD monitor with my pc and now it works. I can display presentations and videos.

    Fantastic with the right App

    • Written by from Lake Forest

    read the negative reviews, but went ahead and bought the cord. Used with GoodReader and iAnnotate it is FANTASTIC!!
    Even easier than using a laptop to give presentations. iAnnotate allows annotations to be written directly on the document/screen, better than a laser pointer.
    So easy the executives can do it themselves and we are ordering more.

    Works great but needs the right apps

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    You just need to get the apps: "keynote", "netflix" and "projector!". With those apps and the iPod app you can project virtually anything,

    Great Product

    I recently got this for my ipad 2 and I love it. It gives me all the features I need.

    Works like a charm!

    • Written by from New York

    This product worked perfectly for me. I read a lot of bad reviews from people but they are totally unwaranted. The product description clearly says that mirroring only works on the iPad 2 so I think all the people complaining have first generatioin iPads. I just plugged it in and it worked perfectly for me, didn't have to do anything. I would recommend it to anyone that has an iPad 2 or New iPad and needs to show content on a VGA projector, VGA monitor or TV with VGA input.

    Great For What It's Meant To Do!

    • Written by from RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA

    I'm a teacher and needed something that would project my Keynote's on my iPad 1, that's all. It not only works great with my iPad but also with my iPod Touch!

    I can see the day when I won't have to carry around my 15 inch MacBook Pro just my iPod Touch!

    I don't need to project anything else but my Keynote's. Works perfectly!

    To those that give it sub-par reviews because it doesn't mirror their iPad 1----read the fine print, it's not made to.

    NEGATIVE Five Stars -*-*-*-*-*

    • Written by from Memphis

    A lot of these review are blaming the connector. Its not the connector, it's the iPad! The only app I could get it to work with is Keynote. And then it only works in the Play Slideshow mode. So much for traveling light with a projector and iPad.

    Once again, I drank Apple's Koolaid. I have had it with their shiny trinkets. The disappointment with the iPad and now the iPhone 4 have really turned me sour on the company.

    Sorry Mr. Jobs. The truth hurts...me and my wallet!

    Works as described

    • Written by from Edgewater

    Just got it home, expecting only to see my Numbers slide shows, some videos, and perhaps photos on my computer monitor. Wow! Everything is mirrored to the monitor. All apps. Everything. Moved it to a "computer" vga input on a TV with the same results. iPad 2, IOS 5.1. One caution: unlike the Composite AV Cable, this adapter does not charge your iPad. Not likely to be much of an issue, but if you need to make sure the battery doesn't die, use the Composite AV Cable. It sends the audio out, too.

    This is a very specific product, know what you're buying

    • Written by from San Diego

    This product is only useful if you are using it for its intended purpose: to allow apps that are written to create output on the external display to do so. I wouldn't buy this unless I had a specific app that I wanted to use with the external display and that app specifically said that it can provide that functionality if you buy this cable. That's it. It's not good for anything else. You wouldn't buy a microwave oven assuming it can deep fry and make toast. I know Apple makes us feel cozy with technology, but with tech gadgets you really have to do your research before buying.

    Great for lightweight, portable business presentations

    • Written by from FRANKLIN

    This product lets me travel lighter to make a business presentation. Using Keynote on the iPad, I was able to import a PowerPoint presentation and use it with very few tweaks. The iPad is a great tool for one-to-one presentations. This product extends it to groups using a standard projector.

    If you're looking for it to project everything you see on the iPad screen–it doesn't. If you're looking to use this as a business tool for making presentations, it's great.
