    Piece of JUNK!

    Use to work when playing netflix to an external display but now it claims that my display isn't HDCP compliant..... What kind of rubbish is this? I'm not buying a new display just to get my apps like netflix, amazon etc etc to work over the cable again. Really disappointing apple.

    Do Not Buy for Video Playback

    This adapter used to work with Netflix and then stopped after iOS upgrade. Xfinity TV Go and HBO Go never worked for me, just blank screen (playback info. shows and closed captioning, but no video) and sound from iPhone or stereo jack only. Comedy Central app never worked for me either. Was diappointed but at least happy with Netflix, but now that it stopped working this is not of much use for me. Works for mirroring screen for non-video apps and games, but games are kind of awkward with the jack sticking out the bottom side. Maybe with Mfi controller games it would be okay, but I'd rather just play with a real controller on console or PC. Too bad, this was really great when it worked with video playback. Would be good for showing a presentation, if your laptop wasn't available for some reason or you just want to show a web site on a bigger screen or projector. $50 was too much to spend on something that is missing the function I think people would want the most out of it. Not recommended.

    The 30 pin to VGA has lasted me for years, but BOTH of the new Lightning to VGA adapters I bought new from apple's website NEVER WORKED! If apple really wants to get creative for the business world, it will come up with a portable USB thumb drive size device that plugs in any Mac or PC to stream airplay audio and video without having to deal with too much software setup, or lug around an apple TV. I know there's software out there that will do this, but when your traveling and using other computers that's likely to end in a disaster. They obviously don't care much about the quality of their cables anymore.

    Ok but not any longer

    Bought this in November 2012. It has worked very well for both my iPad mini and my iPhone 5. Then suddenly, in June 2015 the VGA out stopped working. The lighting passthrough port still works fine, but not impossible to make any presentations using Keynote on the iPad. Oh well, back to Powerpoint for me. No way am I spending £40 on a new one...

    Two have failed, dont want to buy another!!!

    Bought my first one and after less than 10 uses, it would no longer send out signal from my ipad mini to my projector. Returned the first got a second one and after about two dozen uses it stop sending signal again. Not happy! These things are at a high price but dont have high longevity that is expected of apple products.

    Excellent for PowerPoint/Keynote

    I bought this in order to give a Keynote presentation from my iPhone using my iPad as a remote- once plugged into the projector I had a perfect 4:3 display of my slides. The Lightning input allows the phone to be charged whilst running the presentation. Overall I'm very satisfied, and I'd have given 5 stars if it sold at £30

    Does not work with iOS 8.3

    Works fine with iOS 8.2. Once I upgraded to 8.3, it stopped working. Searching on the Web, I see many other people have the same issue. Bad Apple!

    It is very unreliable, it does not work 50% of the time

    It works fine with monitors. But not with projectors

    Incompatible with the iPad 2 Air leather / neoprene case design.

    I cannot believe this. I just paid 79 for an Apple iPad case and 49 for an Apple Lightning to VGA adapter and, it turns out, the Lightning jack is OVAL (and not flat - the usual design). Because of this design incompatibility, the jack does NOT fit properly into the port hole and pulls / scratches the case leather with it. The same goes for the iPhone 6 leather case.

    Rubbish - Don't buy it.

    It Doesn't work with my I pad Mini running IOS 8.2 What an absolute waste of time, why isn't there a warning about this before I bought it?

    I've used AirServer in the past for presentations using the iPad and while the wireless route is great, it was spotty and very unreliable at times (not to mention you had to have your laptop running with the program as well). This adapter was provided at a hotel where I was presenting so I used it instead of Air Server and it worked perfectly. No delay in response like with AirServer, and easy plug and play use. I will be purchasing one of these to use for all my future presentations.

    I have used this product in my class to give lecture. I have installed powerpoint apps in my iphone 5S. I have loaded all my lecture slide in my iphone and use this cable to connect my iphone to a projecter. Superb. I don't have to bring laptop or netbook anymore. The iphone is sufficient. Its easy and user friendly. easy to carry, small in size and less hassle. The best of the best.

    L to VGA Adapter does not work with ITunes movies

    I bought this so that I could watch purchased TV shows with my iPad 4 connected to a monitor. Despite the description for the VGA adapter that says you can watch movies and shows on TVs and projectors, it does NOT work. When I play the show I purchased from iTunes, I am given a message that says "THE CONNECTED DISPLAY IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO PLAY PROTECTED MOVIES." I get the same error message when I connect my computer monitor to the adapter. Perhaps the description of this product should be changed to say that you can watch movies and shows on TVs and Projectors--EXCEPT the ones you buy from iTunes? I feel that Apple is sending me the message that I should get my content from torrents rather than buying it from iTunes. Are there Apple-branded projectors or monitors that will support this adapter? What's the point of having a VGA adapter for your device if you cannot watch iTunes

    Died after less than six months of minimal use (less than ten times)

    I purchased this adapter in the Fall of last year. I'm a teacher and wanted to use my iPad Air in class rather than lugging my MacBook to present my PowerPoint lectures. I used it about 10 times at the most and it worked perfectly. But when I geared up for this semester I planned to use it again. I plugged it in and while the presentation appeared on the projector screen it immediately began to blink off and on and it did so the entire time. Thinking that it was the projector I contacted our tech crew and asked them to troubleshoot. After they did I came to class the following day and the same thing happened. They came again, had their own adapter, plugged my iPad into theirs and I lectured problem free. The problem was my basically brand new adapter. I have always kept the adapter stowed away in my iPad carrying bag and never dropped it or anything. So why is it dying? After reading all the reviews on the Apple site this is apparently a widespread and recurring problem. And some of you might say that I can just get another since its under warranty, but think about it: why should I NEED to get a replacement in less than six months??? On what planet is THAT good business??? I'm an Apple person to the core (ha!) but this is ridiculous. if I invest in the Lightning to HDMI adapter will it do the same thing??? I'm not taking the chance.

    For those of you who gave it glowing reviews, or think other folks are just plain dunce-tards, I would like to hear from you a few months from now. Then we shall see if you still think this $50 piece of junk is worthy of 5 stars.

    Laggy video output

    Both the HDMI and VGA lightning video adapters introduce lag to video output that wasn't present with the 30 pin adapters. Because of this my old iPad3 is better for running VJAY (audio-visual performance app) than a brand new iPad Air 2. Disappointed that Apple, a company that used to be the standard for creative types, is pushing a standard like lightning adapters that can't perform well enough for artistic applications.

    No movies

    The description says you can watch movies and TV shows, but it won't work with any movies or a lot of TV shows. A message on the iPhone says something about the device not being authorised to play protected content. This would othwrwise be fine. I purchased it to watch video with an old VGA monitor while being on charge, but it's next to useless for that.
    The money should have gone toward a new monitor.
