    Dissapointed

    • Written by from Glen Burnie

    I should have done more research before I bought this product. I was planing on doing a demo of the iPad for our computer user's group and using the VGA adapter to project the iPad screen to the wall. But since the VGA adapter only displays movies and photos, it's kind of useless for me.

    This is absolutely ridiculous!
    I just bought this cable to connect the iPod touch to a projector and it turns out it doesn't work -even though it is supposed to-! Why do you keep making things so difficult? can i get a refund for this or am i stuck with a useless cable?!?!

    No Screen Mirroring and Landscape Mode Only

    • Written by from Grayson

    Only a few applications will output to the adapter. Perhaps in OS4.x Apple will add screen mirroring. I was hoping to be able to do training videos for several apps but I'm still relegated to capturing these with a video camera.

    Does Not Mirror iPad Screen

    • Written by from Shah Alam

    The adapter does not mirror my iPad screen of a web-based application! It only works as what was said, video and pictures! Don't buy if you plan to mirror iPad screen..!

    Not Cool

    • Written by from LAKEWOOD

    Love my iPad... disappointed in the VGA Adapter. Why mass produce something that wont work with the most basic apps available?
    I expected more from a company that makes its money on "cool factor"...

    Well....

    Good idea but crippled by not being able to VGA out all apps and the entire iPad experience. Will have very limited usefulness for mobile employees looking to present information and ideas with their iPad.

    Almost Genius, But Instead....

    • Written by from Las Cruces

    OK, first problem.... How do you power you ipad when it is plugged into this device, So your watching a movie, or giving a presentation when all the sudden, Boom! Your Ipad is out of battery...

    Problem Two... This attachment doesn't work with really any application, it doesn't mirror your screen or do anything that it could. Maybe after everyone buys this devise APPLE will come out with version TWO that supports will support a little more... story of apples life.

    APPLE you can't make up reviews or delete them quick enough to make this product seem like a must have, another week and this product will have 1 star. My rating is 0 stars, not given that option of course.

    • Written by from Trent

    "Ladies, ladies, ladies, please. Apple is not so draconian that they could or would stop the flow of photons from your ipad to the projector/monitor. The only reason (some) of Apple's native products work as they should (allow for video out) is because they have built their apps with the understanding that users might want to display the content of their ipads on a larger screen. The problem with this adapter is not that it doesn't work on all ipad apps (which is true), the problem is that not all app developers have enabled video out correctly in their ipad apps. "

    Every time I get to thinking I might have found a useful purpose for IPad I buy something like this that is so limited. Then read something from some apple elitist like above. It's not Apples fault. Bought mine from think geek and they were less clear about it. Funny my windows, windows mobile, and android devices don't have to have the developer "enable" video out to see my desktop or home screen.

    Reviews that say "READ" are naive!

    • Written by from Hornby

    Yes all it says is movies and slideshows, but it doesn't say ONLY moves and slide shows.

    If they released a product that mirrored everything on the iPad and iPhone screen, it would still only say something like "view movies and slideshows (maybe pictures to) on your larger screen".

    It's unfortunate that people need to find out the wrong way about products that should do more.

    Apple releases far too many products that are limited...I wanted a cinema display until I found out it to is limited...for shame Apple...for shame.

    Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this useless cable. The product description says you will be able to watch movies and slideshows. But it does not say that you will not be able to watch your purchased itunes movies. If you are looking to watch your purchased movies from itunes DO NOT BUY THIS CABLE. Complete BS!! I wish I could give it no stars.

    I was disappointed to find that I can't project Safari to VGA in my classes. I was hoping to be able to replace my Mac Air. I know I assumed I would be able to and didn't even think to check.

    READ this BEFORE You BUY!

    • Written by from Lockbourne

    This product totally disappoints because it is very limited in USE.
    Only can play very , very selected movies.... I have not been able to find a movie it can play incidentally!
    Those you purchase from iTUNE does NOT get projected ! You get a message telling you it is not authorized to project the movie!!!
    If you want to play TV shows from iTune, seemed to work. Not sure what the logic is allowing TV shows but NOT movies you purchased legally?
    Also, if you had purchased your own DVD movie and ported to iTune library, guess what it does NOT play as well! Only good for Slide shows and CANNOT project any APPS whatsoever!
    Like all those who has left review, I am feeling utterly CONNED!

    Only works with apps that support it

    • Written by from Englewood

    The adapter does NOT show what is on the iPad, it only displays content that apps support. I wish I knew the limitation when I got it - this is going back. It appears this is only supported with Photo slideshows, Youtube videos, and keynote presentations.

    Almost useless

    • Written by from salvador

    I purchased a few hours ago and feel stupid for it
    You can't even see on the iPad what is on display on projection, because it doesn't mirror the slides. You have to guess the location of buttons on your black screen iPad to interact with anything.

    I feel fooled and want to warn you: I can't think for a single reason why anyone could possibly want the product.
    For me it is useless. And worse, in Brazil it costs 70 dollars and there is no return garanteed.

    I will have to beg, cry, blackmail, whatever... In order to get rid of it

    It does not mirror the screen and has severely limited usage. That should be made clear in the product description.

    Misleading and limited functionality.

    • Written by from MURRIETA

    The adapter does what it says, but it makes it sound as if it were VGA output for **anything** being displayed by the iPad.

    Instead, it is limited to the apps that allow video output and the ones that Apple provide.

    The reason it is misleading is because these limitations are not listed in the product description--not even as a note.

    In my opinion, save $29 and move on.
