    Works Flawlessly

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    I was intimidated by the negative reviews but went ahead with the purchase anyway. I needed this adapter to play iTunes rented movies and TV Shows off my iPad 3 onto my Panasonic Plasma 46". I have played SD content so far (Skyfall) but i have checked the specs of my plasma and it support HDCP so there should be no issues with protected HD content.
    Both picture and sound were great.

    worth the pricey tag for me...

    It works well.

    • Written by from Arcadia

    I like it. A few things to do to enjoy movies through this adapter.

    You might need to remove your case to get a solid connection with the adapter.

    You need to keep the iPhone/Pod Touch stable: the adapter is long, so keeping the device and the adapter on a table top or the floor at the same level is requisite.

    Hook up the USB port to a power supply to keep the device charged while watching movies.

    Having done the above, you'll get great HD input to your TV.

    Works... barely.

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I generally love Apple products, so believe me when i say that this is one of apple's worst designed products. The 3 inch cable attaches to your iDevice purely on some springy tabs. Whenever you move your, lets say for now, iPad 2, it dislodges itself, severing connection. Then you must finagle with it until it reconnects.
    That being said, if you never touch your device or a gust of hard wind doesn't blow on it, it functions flawlessly. Apple apps work well, mirroring works well, and most third party apps work well.
    Basically, this works well, but only if you never touch it... Ever!

    does not work most of the time

    • Written by from Usquert

    Upon connection to my iPad (3rd gen) nine out of ten times it says: This Accessory is Not Supported. Even so it should be compatible according to Apple. Similar for my iPhone 4S, although I did manage to play a video on my TV with it (one time).

    Works just as expected

    • Written by from Norton

    I bought this so that I could project anything on my new iPad (3 gen) to my class. I tested it with my iPod touch and found out (at the local Apple store) that only certain apps would project on a Touch or iPhone.

    I was at a conference with a video projector and asked to try out my new iPad and my new connector during a break. It worked perfectly. It mirrored (and displayed) everything on my iPad. The presenter then tried her iPad 2, and it failed. Apparently the new iPad is the one to use if you want to project anything you have.

    Stopped working after upgrading to 7.1.1

    • Written by from Dunbarton

    This worked great until I updated to 7.1.1. Sometimes it cuts in and out like it has a short. I see the video for a second or two at a time, but then the screen goes black even though the video is still playing on the phone. It will also be working fine and then all of a sudden go to a blue screen with a message "Not Supported," yet the video is still playing on the phone. This was a very expensive adapter, which I've only had about 6 months. I visited an Apple Store and they were no help because it worked fine in the store, but that is PRECISELY THE PROBLEM. SOMETIMES IT WORKS AND SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T!!!! Please fix this!!!! I expect better from Apple.

    Useless

    • Written by from San Jose

    I have two units of this product. It used to work well with Xfinity and Netflix but after the numerous updates, they are now rendered useless. They are rotting in my desk drawer.
    Waste of money!

    Well worth the price.

    • Written by from St Albert

    I like to have movies, some are mkv, on my iPad for flights and also for hotels etc when on a trip. This device allows me to watch movies on the hotel TV and to view any photos I have taken and backed up onto the iPad.

    AVPlayer hd is a good app for watching videos in any format without having to convert to an iTunes compatible format.

    This product does exactly what Apple says it does!

    • Written by from Alexandria

    I admit that I was somewhat skeptical about how well this product would actually work. The complainants were so adamant in their disapproval of this product's performance! I have an iPhone 4S and it is currently my only resource to access the Internet from home. This miracle of technology gives me access to just about everything (still waiting for that flash player app, though)! Is the picture "true" hi-def? I don't know -but there's no weird pixelation that I can see; everything looks great! I've read reviews for other products & apps before and it seems to always come down to connectivity. Get Wi-Fi, people! It makes all the difference. There's some poorly made apps out there, certainly, but I'm getting 1920x1080 @60hz (whatever that means) & I'm getting a great picture of exactly what's on my iPhone's screen! Movies, games, web browsing -and it's even making me a better typist as well! Thank you.

    Works great with iPhone 4S, loses 3G with HDMI connected

    • Written by from Helendale

    I imported some TV shows off of DVD and they look great on the 42" LCD TV, but I noticed that when it is connected to the HDMI out it loses its broadband connection. I have yet to try it while having it plugged into the charger and viewing streaming video to see if that is the issue. Overall it does what it says it will do.

    It's not the Adapter, it's iDevice/display compatibility

    • Written by from Concord

    Reviewers who experience problems need to learn that HDMI is a flakey, frequently unstable interface for displays and other devices just as the first FireWire is, regardless of whether it's an Apple product or any other brand of cable, adapter, and device. The solution, beside having the latest iOS update, is making the connection as short and direct as possible as well as learning that you may have to "wake up" the display by reconnecting the cable (I installed a switch just to avoid that) or find out what works for you (power-cycle or switch between inputs on your display). The ultimate solution is to substitute another model or display/TV. If you take your device and adapter with the connecting cable into an Apple store it will most likely work fine with their equipment because they have selected the display or TV that they know works with the Pod, Phone, and Pad. Don't blame Apple for the incompatibility.

    Love love love the new connector!

    • Written by from San Jose

    I have an iPhone 4s, it works pretty well with the new connector. I like the idea of streaming my video, playing it on the bigger screen and sharing with friends. The new one has the latches compared with the old one so it secures the connection between my phone and TV.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Mount Laurel

    This is a redesigned adapter that was released along with the new iPad. This model does have a clip that locks it in place, with a release tab on both sides. The mirroring function works perfectly, however some apps (such as HBO Go) do not allow mirroring. Overall, a great accessory.

    Waste of money, don't bother. It's 50/50 if you get a dud or not.

    • Written by from Ballinalee

    Bought this From the apple store the day I bought my iPad. After I updated to ios7 I started to get a message. Cable not compatible with this iPad. It worked fine apart from needing to move the wire about a bit because it's not built very well. Very annoying because it is very expensive. Was watching tv on it during the mourning when I got back I get this message.

    works fine

    • Written by from Nashua

    No issues. The only apps with issues are things like xfinity player, but not due to technical limitations. There are contractual limitations.

    The following apps work fine:
    Videos
    Pictures
    Music
    Netflix
    home screen
