    Stopped working after less than a dozen uses

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I got less than a dozen uses out of the Lightning Digital AV Adapter before it quit working. As an apple user since the mid-80s, all I can say is this is yet another example of the demise of Apple quality. Well it was marvelous while it lasted!

    Brought new life to our TV

    • Written by from Madison

    Simple product, and does exactly what it says - streams 1080p from our iPad Air. We connected immediately to our 6 year old Vizio TV and haven't had an issue after 2 months of use. We streamed the entire World Cup in HD from our iPad, and we've just started a Netflix account. This has brought life back to our TV since we don't have cable. I'm not sure what all the poor reviews are about. Research your device to see what resolution you'll get. $50 is pricey, but when compared to a cable package? Come on.

    Reminder: at this point, iPads put out 4:3 ratio. This means when directly mirroring your iPad home screen, your HDTV will be seriously cropped on all sides. However, when streaming video formats the iPad recognizes (Netflix, World Cup from Univision, etc.) the iPad outputs full 16:9 ratio, filling your screen in HD. You want one of these!

    Works Well

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    This adapter works very well, it does mirror what's on the screen of my 5s as well as my iPad Air. I think it's a bit overpriced, but an alright item. I think for the price, an HDMI cord, and / or an AC adapter should be included in the current price.

    Works for a while

    • Written by from Vallejo

    I bought this for use in my car with the AppRadio 3. The quality and connection was great at first, now a month or so later the contact is way sensitive. When driving over a bump or moving my iPod at all creates static or disconnection. If using in a car with constant movement I do not recommend this.

    Nothing HDMI about it!

    • Written by from Cartersville

    This is the shoddiest excuse of an HDMI adapter I have ever seen. While it may transfer audio or video via an HDMI, what you get on your screen is not worthy to be defined as High Definition. Do not waste your money on this product.

    Worked great at home, soon the Big Time.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Got it home, used it to connect my iPhone 5s to my Vizio TV and (especially for you one-star reviewers) watched:

    Beats by Dre x Colin Kaepernick: Hear What You Want Commercial (couldn't use the URL)

    Clear picture and sound, great enough for my eldest daughter to come from the back of the house to request I turn it down. :)

    Lightning Digital AV Adapter broke in three months!

    • Written by from wildwood

    Very upset that this adapter broke after only three months, sadly i didn't even use it more than fifteen times within the three months. Tried it on two iphone 5s's, iphone 5c, ipad air, and four different HDMI cables. I just did that to make sure some setting didn't mess it up, cause it used to work for all of those devices, but not anymore! Do not buy and if Apple stands by their products, i would like a new adapter or a refund! I have the receipt, bought only three months ago!

    GREAT PRODUCT !!!!!

    • Written by from Tampines

    Really nice product just does what it says it's suppose to do.. !!! I was a bit reluctant to purchase it because of all the negative comments... But it just works perfect for my I pad retina and I phone 5 ... + superb picture quality with good sounds... The only negative concerns are that it's over priced and just cannot seem to match the iPad display to the screen... Either it spills over or shrinks too much... anyways I gave 5 stars coz it's a good product yet again...!!!!

    Worksd great!!!

    • Written by from Nahanni Butte

    I bought this so I can connect my ipod, iPhone to a hdmi connection, and to my amazement, its works wonders. It works great and the visual quality is impressive. I haven't bought any HD movies from iTunes but the SD quality is great, better than I expected. Simple to work and easy, Im not sure why other people hated it or got poor quality, but mine works great. I love it, especially when I travel and have my movies on my ipod, and I can just simply plug it into the flatscreen tvs in hotels, rather having to watch them on my laptop.

    Don't mind the bed reviews

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I just bought one, came home plugged it to my iPad Mini w/ Retina (iOS 7.1.1) and everything worked flawlessly. Image is sharp, audio is nice, when you play a video it becomes full screen. Just as you'd expect it. Very little lag. Also it is 1080p, so don't mind people saying it is 720...

    Just what I was looking for

    • Written by from Middlefield

    This little adapter is just what I needed. I was looking for something that could mirror my iPod Touch 5 onto a flatscreen TV via HDMI port, yet something portable that didn't require Wi-Fi. Now I just purchased mine, but so far, so good. I like the fact that there is a lightning port so I can keep my iPod fully charged while on the big screen. However, I do agree that this adapter is overpriced because it does not come with an HDMI cable. I am currently using a 4-foot HDMI cable that I had lying around for quite awhile.

    Is the adaptor buggy or is it 7.1 ??

    • Written by from Springfield

    Using with 5S and iOS 7.1
    Only audio and photos are playing on the TV

    For video it is all white screen, with an AirPlay not available line on the TV,
    This message not on the phone, the phone is playing the video

    So is this a bad adapter, or bad 7.1??
    ( HDMI cable OK, used it with iPad successfully & 30 pin AV converter

    No Hi-Def mirroring

    • Written by from MIAMI

    I was hoping that by some miracle it would mirror at least at 720p but the image is 4:3 all the time except when playing from the video app which will show whatever the resolution is and max out at 1080p. Using this to mirror anything else is a waste of time because the picture looks cropped. Fix it Apple!!!!!!! Haven't you wasted enough of your customer's time and money with false advertising????

    Doesn't work with iPad Air

    • Written by from Panama City Beach

    The cable does not work with the iPad Air. I bought it to work with my DISH Hopper via Dishanywhere when traveling.
    Sound connects, but there is no video. I tried via a receiver and directly to two HD HDMI equipped TV's. The same result
    I also tried several input signal and still no video.
    iPad by itself connects without a ptoblem to Dishanywhere.

    That makes Apple 2 for 2 for expensive junk.
    I also bought a lightning SDHC card reader. It also failed to perform as described.

    Worth every penny...

    • Written by from Brampton

    Product works perfectly...other's who have complained may be using older ipads or discount hdmi cables. read one of the other reviewers who summarizes the entire setup....just installed both the lightening cable and rocketfish hdmi (9 ft cable) and picture from Netflix is HD and perfect.

    Works fine for me.

    • Written by from Oakland

    I have an iPhone 5s with Sony Bravia and it looks awesome in 1080p. It does mirror, until I play a video. Don't know if it works differently with other models between iPhones and tv's, but it might be the case.
    I never give a 5 star on anything unless, it does the dishes, takes out the trash or does the laundry for me.
