    Just pure awesomeness!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Speaking for the iphone 5s and up to the 6+. This adapter is pure magic. You can so far play anything your iphone throws at you through your HD tv!
    Netflix? Yes, clash of clans? You got it! Rented or owned movies, tv series..... Walking dead? Of course! All in glorious HD full screen! So far i'm glad i made the purchase. A little overpriced but good quality.
    See i wanted to get the apple TV but my xbox one can do most of the stuff apple tv throws at you. This adapter will make your dilemas easier between buying a Apple TV or not.
    So far i haven't had any issues described by the other reviews. I've had this miracle of a portal for over a year and still using it to the fullest.

    Would not recommnd for traveling + way overpriced

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Using on my iPad Mini (1st gen), Vizio HD TV.

    Pros --
    - when it works, it looks great on the TV; total mirroring and decent resolution
    - audio through the HDMI, full screen video really is full screen
    - is small and very portable for traveling

    Cons --
    - PRICE. US$49 is ridiculous, AND you have to buy the HDMI cable on top of that. I get that Apple is trying to encourage people to use Apple TV instead but it's just not practical for people who want to use this adapter for travel and portability
    - connecting the adapter and HDMI to the TV and iPad are finicky -- it didn't recognize the device when I turned my TV to the HDMI channel and then connected. Have to either turn off the TV or change to a different channel, THEN connect the iPad, THEN turn to the HDMI channel
    - biggest con for those who are using this for travel -- many hotels control the TV functions (i.e. menu, access to channels and component/input options, etc.) -- I tried using this adapter at two different hotels and both times, they wouldn't recognize the iPad as being connected. So this may be hit or miss (but mostly miss for me)

    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.

    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.

    • Written by from Shrewsbury

    Works very well.
    I just got it and plugged it into the iphone 5 and then into the hdmi on the tv, went to source on the tv and chose hdmi1/dviand it was all there just like it is on the iPhone.
    Bought a movie from itunes and enjoyed it and was proud of myself that I figured out.

    Lightning to HDMI --- AWESOME

    • Written by from Morganton

    I love it. Works great! I took it with me to Europe so I could watch movies during down times and it worked perfect there. I was streaming in and enjoying it. Been using mine on my Mini for about 1 1/2 years now and no issues! Well worth the money if you're looking for something like this.

    It's value, not price, making this iDevice accessory a must!

    • Written by from Burnaby

    By using the Digital AV Adapter with our new iPad Air, my wife was convinced of its value AND usefulness when she was able to almost effortlessly connect it to the HDTV and watch daily Hong Kong soap operas not yet available for another year on Canadian cable TV.

    I cheekily only gave this 4 out of 5 stars because now I have to buy an iPad Mini with Retina Display for her so I can get the iPad Air back for my use... ;)

    Not as good as the 30 Pin Digital AV Adapter

    • Written by from Keenesburg

    Works well for driving a signal to an HDMI or DVI (with HDMI to DVI converter). I was a little disappointed because the older 30 pin version allowed me to drive a video signal to a monitor AND connect to my Mac Air simultaneously.... I was fond of loading new movies onto my iPad while I watched a show.

    This new adapter only supports charging your iPad ... not as good. If you are like me and used the older 30 pin adapter this subtle difference in functionality may not be apparent (although it is clear in the product description). Not one of the on-line reviews I read mentioned this difference in functionality.

    great product but pricey

    • Written by from Hanmer

    this product works very well. on bothy my iphone 5 and ipad. I use it all the time at home, at work and when I travel. My vehicle has an HDMI port and this makes it extremely easy to play movies for my kids when travelling.
    My only gripe is its very expensive. $29.99 would be a more reasonable price for this type of product.

    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.

    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.

    to Valeri F

    • Written by from Timnath

    Hi Valeri,
    You said that you were disappointed that you didn't get 1080 HD with this cable on your iPad 4th gen and that people should read the specs on that item before buying. That might be true but this cable doesn't claim to give that quality on that device. It specifically states in the product description that you can get that video quality with the iPad 5. I just wanted to point out that you are not comparing apples to apples and you might be disappointed over something that was never possible and never claimed as a possibility in the first place.

    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.

    Does NOT connect iPhone 5 to HDMI!

    • Written by from Ramona

    Wish i could give zero stars! Don't waste your time or money if you are looking to use this to connect your iPhone 5 to your HDTV! Tried all settings, multiple HDMI cords, rebooting iPhone... No luck! Will be returning worthless, OVERPRICED connector to best buy tomorrow!

    Works just fine

    • Written by from PHOENIX

    For ! Phone 5 to my Bose portable sound system. Charges too, have to take the ! phone 5 cover off, not a big deal. About $20 overpriced but works perfect with Bose system.

    I'd get it again. Wish it was a little cheaper though.

    Works great but the thunderbolt cable needs to be longer......

    • Written by from Kenosha

    I just bought Pioneer Z150bh and installed it in my 2007 Honda accord and I love it!!!!!!!!!!! I can mirror my apps on my iphone 5 on my pioneer stereo and it works absolutety amazing!

    The main reason for my review is to share what needs to change with the Lightning AV Adaptor. The cable works great but the lightning cable to connect to iphone 5 is way to short and I can't find anyone on the internet that sales an extension.
    -Basically my problem is I have this hooked up to my stereo and then it run out of my dashboard and connects to my iphone 5 so i can display apps on my pioneer stereo. But the problem is I don't want to have a huge adaptor hanging from my iphone 5. There needs to be a Female to Male Thunderbolt cable created so i can hide this huge adaptor behind my stereo.
    Apple if you're ready this can you please work on making a Female to Male thunderbolt or a longer thundbolt end on the AV adaptor-say like 2-3 feet so we can hide the adaptor and have just the thunderbolt cable coming out to use. Thanks for working on this!
    Other than that this adaptor has worked flawlessly so far. I give it 4 start b/c it didn't completely meet my needs.

    Works as intended

    • Written by from rochester

    I bought this yesterday and connected my ipad to my bedroom 720 HD plasma TV and the picture was great (Netflix, HBOgo, Itunes). A couple of minor issues were that the display was not a full screen on the TV unless I was playing videos like on Netflix. Also the price is high but what's new there... I still have to try it on my 1080 LED TV to see if the picture quality would suffer but so far it has done exactly what I needed.
