    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!

    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. :)

    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.

    • 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.

    Excellent if pricey

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Excellent video output quality from iPhone 5s to HDMI. Super easy to use. A brilliant addition if you travel frequently since you can load up your phone with videos and then playback in HD quality on any HD capable TV.

    Simple yet sophisticated

    • Written by from Pasadena

    I'm not sure why some users are having difficulties ... as soon as I connected the adaptor, I was able to watch home videos, view photos, and best of all, watch movies. The image quality is perfect on the movies as is the audio quality.

    Apple is awesome! Such a small little adaptor ... with such great possibilities!

    Used in movie theater and was great!

    • Written by from Sandy Hook

    We purchased this to stream a movie from the iPhone 5 onto a movie screen in a local theater for a birthday party. It worked great! The picture and sound were amazing, and you would have never known it was coming from an iPhone. Would highly recommend.

    Product works as advertised

    • Written by from Midlothian

    I had read reviews of this and another cable of people claiming it did not fit even with the Apple case. Rather than order online I drove to the Apple store and asked them if I could test it there on the spot. Of course, they were offended at the idea that Apple would not make it compatible with their own case I as have on my iPhone 5s and iPad air.

    In short, it fit perfectly. I brought it home and it works perfectly on my HDTV.

    Do I wish the price were a bit cheaper? Sure, just like everything else I own with the Apple logo, so get over it. It's supply and demand. As more third party knock offs are made, perhaps you can take your chance with their junk. For now, I and others will pay the price and it works.

    Awesome!

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I do not understand the comments about this product not working? I also do not understand how people can purchase this product without reading the tech specs about it, and then coming on here and complaining about things that it won't do or why it's incompatible with their equipment, etc… when all they have to do is take a minute and read the tech specs. All the answers are there and they would save time and money to find out whether it would work or not with their current setup. This thing is awesome and has saved us from having to purchase another external device to play movies, TV shows, etc… since it produces HD quality for such things!
    Just do the research and enjoy, and/or save! Great product Apple…As usual!

    Enables me to stream Netflix to HD TV without WiFi!

    • Written by from Portland

    I bought this product to use at a vacation cabin - I get cellular data but there's no WiFi. This adapter allows me to stream movies from my iPhone 5's Netflix app directly to our HDTV. This method has been very reliable, the installation is simple, and the picture/sound quality has been comparable to streaming Netflix through my TIVO via WiFi at home. I'm completely satisfied, and now I don't have to rent DVD's when we go to the cabin. It's like magic!

    CAUTION: Pay attention to your data usage if you don't have an unlimited cellular data plan. Movies use up a lot of MBytes!

    Works great!

    • Written by from Houston

    I was a bit skeptical about this product after reading through the reviews but decided to give it a try. I went into the Apple store this afternoon and had them hook up my iPad to one of their televisions using the adapter BEFORE I made the purchase. Worked exactly as I wanted in the store and also when I got it home.

    Not sure what the folks having problems are doing (or not doing) but for me, it was definitely worth the trip to the store. And, because it's working so well, I can overlook the price though would have been great if it cost about $20 less (smile ... I hope you're listening Apple Marketing since price is a recurring theme in these reviews).

    So far so good

    After reading the reviews I was a little hesitant about purchasing this AV adapter. However, I am quite pleased with the product and my purchase. In fact, I subsequently purchased the 30-pin version for my third generation iPad.

    Overpriced but works great.

    • Written by from Turlock

    Bought for use with iPhone 5 movies and TV shows from iTunes. It did not want to work with my old Toshiba TV/DVD combo. It does work with my 1080p monitor after I set the input signal on the monitor ( menu shows: analog/digital/HDMI ). Since the monitor does not have sound I plugged an external speaker into the iPhone and it works great.
