    Amazing product

    • Written by from Alexandria

    Just got this so I can watch Netflix on business trips and it linked up immediately and works great! I have tried it with both my iPhone 5 and iPad Retina and both resulted in clear and full HDTV, amazing picture and sound. I highly recommend this product.

    Great product

    • Written by from Pond Inlet

    Really good adaptor. Downloaded movies on itunes, put movies in mini iPad connect to tv. Great quality watching movies with it. Plus it mirrors the mini iPad. My daughter connects iPad to tv and play her favourite apps, games or movies. Price seems high but worth the buy.

    Works great for iPad but not so much for iPhone

    • Written by from Liberty

    I work in television and have some downtime between shows. I'm surrounded by monitors and wanted to put on Netflix through my iPhone 5. I have an apple TV (carrying it around would be a hassle opposed to a cable.) The airplay and the netflix app work great on Apple TV. Sometimes on the apple tv netflix takes a second to buffer and to get to a clear hd picture but with this cord there was never a clear picture streaming Netflix, great wifi connection and all. Just a jumpy picture from time to time and even looked SD. I hope other people have better luck than I, but I'm going to have to return it unfortunately. A bad picture drives me crazy and I can't get over how a hard line isn't up to par with a wireless connection.

    Burnin display on the iPad 4 retina

    • Written by from Dedham

    I just bought the lightning to HDMI adapter for my iPad last week. The device works great and the picture quality is amazing. I primarily use it to plug in my iPad to my TV and watch Netflix. The other day I noticed that when I went to go to another app after unplugging the adapter from my iPad that Netflix was burned into the center of my display on the iPad. When using the Netflix app while using the adapter, when the video is playing it is only playing on the tv and the iPad has the generic Netflix logo with the red background. Is there a way I can eliminate this? Is this a Netflix app thing or an apple thing? Any advise would be awesome!

    Works Great

    • Written by from Greenwich

    I have a 2011 GTI and needed an adapter to work with the 30 pin connector that comes with the car. It works perfectly and has just enough length that the phone can sit in the center console cup holder.

    One nice thing is I don't have to take my case off the phone to plug it in.

    Do not expect 1080p HDTV quaility with this DV HDMI

    • Written by from East Setauket

    I was disappointed with the 720p resolution I got from mirroring the "Retina" display and THEN read the Apple Web site.
    Check Apple Web site first! Do not miss the IPad (4th gen) tech spec ;)
    " . . . Video mirroring and video out support: Up to 720p through Lightning Digital AV Adapter . . ."

    Worked Great

    Purchased this device to use on our 4th generation iPad. No problems. Every image was displayed perfectly. Slide shows are terrific. Music is great too. Videos do well too.

    Works Great!

    • Written by from Warman

    I bought this to be used exclusively with an projector for work and work related presentations. It duplicates the screen perfectly from the ipad to the project. The specific one I purchased through future shop also has the 30 pin connector so I can have my ipad plugged into a power source during use.

    So far it has worked flawlessly and for $49.00 I consider this a pretty good deal...beats lugging my laptop around and all the oversided accessories for that. So far it appears to project all apps that I use on a regular basis (including apps that I was told could not be projected). I am a designer so having the ability to mark up drawings on my ipad while they are being projected to a large screen during a presentation is a great tool.

    Hopefully others will have the same success I have been having with this accessory.

    Not limiting to certain apps

    • Written by from Sacramento

    Although it's overpriced it allows me to watch any app on my flatscreen! I don't need an audio cable anymore. The image quality is great. I use it everyday to watch Netflix, Hulu, Jtv, Veetle, among others

    Adapter failings

    • Written by from Stevenson

    The description says it mirrors what is on the iPad screen but try HBO GO on Dish Network. Says " not supported". Maybe HBO restriction but should be pointed out.

    Useless for development

    • Written by from Morden

    I bought this adapter so I could use it while developing an app that needed separate video output. It seemed perfect because it has the hdmi output as well as a passthrough lightning plug so you can keep it attached to your computer for development/debugging as well.

    Unfortunately, it only passes through power, and does not show up as the original device you plugged in, so its useless to me.

    Yes it works, but its severely overpriced!

    • Written by from East Chicago

    I have been able to display everything from the screen of the iPad out to my TV. I have been able to play movies purchased from iTunes, those from my Kingston WiDrive, and those from my Seagate GoFlex Satellite. The problem with this small and simple, connector is that is severely overpriced! Not to mention, none of the 8pin to 30pin adapters do not support accessories... the adapters are only for charging and syncing! I have a nice Microvision SHOWWX+ Laser Pico Projector that is useless now because it uses a 30-pin connector :( It's all my fault for upgrading. The new lightning connector is the worst thing ever.

    Works Great With iPad (4th Generation)

    • Written by from Medford

    This adapter mirrors the display of my iPad. When watching videos using the built-in Video app, the TV displays everything (no scaling issues). Some apps, however, do not completely use the area of the TV display when using this adapter (e.g. IMDB, Apple Trailers, YouTube).

    This adapter is too pricey but I bought it anyway because I needed one. I am, however, satisfied with it.

    Does not provide sound for Maps

    • Written by from Markham

    This cable works well and it mirror iPhone 5 display with good quality. I can watch movies, youtube or listen to songs and I can hear the sound on the TV.

    I had an issue that the sound of the Maps application does not come through this cable. The sound still goes through iPhone speakers. I can only see the video of the Maps with no sound.
    I wanted to use this cable to connect my phone to my car screen and use iPhone as GPS system but so far this is not working as I can not hear the direction sound through my car speakers with this cable.
    Apple can you please fix it

    Outrageously overpriced

    • Written by from Ojo Sarco

    This adapter did not function well at all. Half the time the TV does not recognize the signal. The rest of the time the image was poor.

    It is excessively overpriced for what it is and performs poorly. This is an absolute insult from apple.

    Not just for movies

    • Written by from Rahway

    I just got my adapter 2 days ago in the mail and I must say this is much better than the old 30pin adapter I had for my iPhone 4s. Right off the bat the picture quality is much better thanks to the HDMI cable, my old adapter was just to those yellow white and red RCA cables so it makes sense that this would be better quality. Another big improvement is that this provides true display mirroring not just a/v out for apps that where designed to be compatible. So now I can play games, go online or even facetime using my big screen tv. I'm really happy with this cable... even if I wasn't really happy with the $50 price tag.

    Loose connection due to faulty and/or redesigned claws

    • Written by from Virkby

    The new Apple MD098ZM/A adapter connector hooks up loosely and does not secure a solid connection! The connection is frequently lost and becomes annoying to the point that it is just too aggravating. My charger's 30-pin connection hooks up just fine. I examined the connectors carefully and compared differences. The MD098ZM/A adapter has slightly smaller claws, claw ends are more pointed and you can feel that it does not hook up as it is designed or intended to. I will return it for an exchanged item or cash. I use only original Apple components. This was however a let down by Apple considering the prices Apple charge!!
