    Loves the iPad2 But ...

    • Written by from KIHEI

    I tried with all three devices - iPad2, iPhone4S, and iPod Touch - on the same projector and would only project from iPad2, which is awesome, but we have a lot more iPod touches on campus so I was hoping it could work on those, too. So that's why the rating of 3.

    Not Exactly Love

    • Written by from Huntington Beach

    I used the VGA adapter into my LCD with my iPad 1. Video games worked, photos worked, YouTube, videos all worked. However, I was not able to view a powerpoint presentation, spreadsheet or Word doc, through DocsToGo or Dropbox, which is why I wanted it. I dream of presenting to a client off my iPad rather than laptop, but it remains to be seen, no pun intended. So buyer beware depending on what you want to use it for.

    I love my VGA adapter!!!!

    • Written by from PORTSMOUTH

    I use it everyday to read books nd watch TV episodes. It was well worth the price. It does not working my iPad, but it works well with my iPad2. It's small, portable(All Apple products are) and I plan on buying another real soon.

    does nothing with iPhone 4

    • Written by from Galena

    Despite the claims that this cable is compatible with iPhone 4 it apparently is not. I got this to use in my class to show students various bird-related apps and compare them to online resources and traditional field guides. Nothing, not just no mirroring, but no anything, photos, slideshows, nothing. C'mon Apple, you want schools to adopt etextbooks on iPads, time to make the iPhones truely compatible with LCD projectors. It can't be that difficult.

    A bit Disappointed

    • Written by from Lincoln

    I own both iPad2 and iPhone4s and thought this adapter is going to be very convenience for me. But it made me ran like crazy when it doesn't support on the Panasonic Projector on my presentation day. There were "blinks" (a lot of them, in fact) when I connected via this adapter. However, two stars I gave is for working on the Mitsubishi projector on the other rooms, two stars is about right for this reason.

    Does not do what it says on the label!

    • Written by from Bolton

    This lead will only work with videos and photos from your device to the TV does not replicate any of my apps to the screen. Bought it because I got a number generator app which I wanted to show on a large screen but just shows a blank screen so now it's back to the drawing board till someone can come up with a way to do what I see as a pretty simple task. There MUST me some way!! Come on you apple techs!!! ;)

    Mirrors the iPad 2 perfectly via VGA

    • Written by from Fairfax

    Works as described and mirrors your iPad 2 to a connected display using a VGA connector. Plug this adapter into the iPad, and attach to the male end of a VGA cable connected to your display and you see the iPad 2 user interface.

    *Product Used: iPad 2 v5.0.1
    - You will need a VGA cable to connect between this adapter and your display.
    - You see the entire iPad user interface and the content of each app as you open it.
    - I tried a bunch of apps and games and all were mirrored on the display without issues.
    - iBooks worked perfectly for displaying presentations. Just open an email with the PDF presentation, select the attachment and select Open in iBooks, and it adds to your library. Open here and flip through the presentation.
    - As you might expect, the adapter does not allow copy protected material to display:
    [x] HBO Go - Is blocked and will not display when connected
    [x] Cox TV Connect - Will run and you can see the show listings, but the display area will not show any content when connected
    [x] Downloaded Videos from the apple store would not display

    *Product Used: iPhone4 v5.0.1
    - Would NOT mirror the general user interface like on the iPad 2
    - I tried YouTube and could view videos
    - I tried a couple other apps that specifically have TV-out capabilities and they worked

    In general did what I needed it to do for business presentations.

    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!

    reviewers, learn to read an ad

    • Written by from Berkeley

    perhaps Apple updated the info for this item, but it is plain at this point- This Item only works for certain functions on most devices. On most devices, it only plays video or photos. It does what it does, not what you wish it would do.

    No way to charge

    • Written by from Westwego

    I make heavy, almost constant use of my iPad in my class (sometimes four hours at a time). I can't connect to an external power supply while I'm using my adapter. It's a great product but that one missing idea really puts me back at square one. It's fantastic for shorter periods of time.

    Its the fine print you don't see

    • Written by from Sterling

    On the website in grey it says

    "Mirroring supported only by iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.

    Video out supports up to 1080p for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S and up to 720p for iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod touch (4th generation). Movies play at up to 720p."

    This text is very hard to see. What that means is that it will push video out on iPad 1 and iPhone4 or less devices, but it will not display the screen. It is not particularly helpful to discover this vaguely hidden language when you are trying to figure out why it is not working.

    Works great with projector and saves carrying MacBook

    • Written by

    This does exactly what I expected it to do: show my Keynote presentation/slideshow through a projector. I have been running informational slides during the networking portion of our professional association meetings, and this makes it even more simple as I don't even have to take my MacBook Air.

    I can make a Keynote slideshow on either directly on my iPad2 or create on my computer and move it to the iPad later. (I used Dropbox, but iCloud should be a good option.)

    It mirrors what's on the iPad. I also tried it with my iPhone 4 -- worked perfectly with that also.

    I'm not using sound.

    This product only MIRRORS with iPhone 4s or IPad2, older devices (iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPad1) will not Mirror under any circumstances and will be frustrating to use.
    This is the feature that sold me on upgrading to the 4S as its really really cool, and its fhe way iOS and movies and apps and everything was meant to be. But I recommend getting the apple tv which does,it all wirelessly.
    These adapter are not well suited for the devices, they're bulky and clumsy and the wire falls out easily, but did serve a purpose prior to the wireless mirroring on the new devises.

    This product doesn't work on iPad 2 and iPod Touch

    • Written by from Porto Alegre

    I bought the VGA adapter on Apple Store and the product is not compatible with iPod Touch and iPad2. Every time I connect the iPad / iPod accessory report that is incompatible.
    I followed all the guidelines as Apple's forums with reports of the same problem. The suggested solutions did not work.
