    Amazing product

    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.

    Does What It Says

    I was having doubts buying this adapter after reading the numerous negative reviews; however, I popped into the Apple Store to talk to an Apple Specialist and I am very grateful that I did as he stated he uses one at home and it would work fine for the purpose I needed it for. After using it and having a play, it works with the following apps (the list is not exhaustive) - Netflix, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, Demand 5 and YouTube. It does not work with 4OD (their fault not Apples) and apparently Sky (Apple Specialist informed me of this before purchase, but since I do not have Sky I was not bothered). The picture is very clear and the sound quality very good, if you want to use your iPad for streaming through your tv then this is the adapter to buy.

    HDMI out

    This is an excellent product. Mirrors the iPhone 100% from home screen to any app. The only issue is your tv isn't retina quality. Should be 29.99 I believe tho

    Quit working

    Only worked good for about 3 1/2 months now it takes forever to get it to work and I can't touch or move my phone. I have never had an apple product with this terrible of quality. For $50 should definitely last longer especially not used much and always put up when not in use. Would not recommend wasting your money.

    Poor Video Quality and No Audio Out of Headphone Jack

    Instead of outputting native HDMI, this little device seems to take the output from the phone, compress it, and pass along an HDMI signal. The result is the video quality is far below good HD quality. Expect all kinds of artifacts and other issues including lower than expected HD resolution. This is not a device that can replace a good streaming alternative, which is too bad considering Apple's devices are more than powerful enough for that purpose. For those of us hoping to use our phones or iPads to connect in business settings to display content, be aware that audio is only transmitted through the lightening port when this is plugged in, which gives no audio out through the headphone jack. That means that if you are plugging this into a projector's HDMI input, you are likely going to lose any sound that goes along with your presentation (or anything else) as most quality projectors do not have speakers. This is a big oversight in my opinion as lots of devices keep the analog audio out of a headphone jack or the like live while also transmitting sound over HDMI. Similarly, sound is not also sent via bluetooth when this is plugged in, so that's not an alternative either. I have both the bluetooth and headphone jack options open on my laptop, which has an HDMI out. So much for replacing a good old laptop.

    Poor quality, not durable, ridiculously overpriced

    Failed within just a couple of months of purchase. Drops connection, low volume, noisy, and not full HD. For the price I expected far better. Buying another because I apparently have no choice. BOO. Fail. Epic fail.

    Bad product

    It worked for about a week then just quit working. I thought it was my lighting cord or my hdmi so I went and got new ones. But nope this 50$ cable crapped out on me in a week. I bought it to use with my radio in my car and it just dose not hold up well at all I do not recommend this product. Much cheaper and more effective to buy a knock off

    Hot garbage

    I've bought knock off electronics from swap meets and flea markets that work better and more consistently than this lump of junk. The only good thing about it is that it feeds my daily gambling needs betting on how it's going to disappoint me that day.

    Not good

    Quite unexpected for an Apple product. I bought it to use with and iPadAir2 and it worked for about 10 seconds.
    Though disappointed, I tried it with my iPod Touch and at home with an HDMI connected to a Vizio TV it worked, but come presentation time using an HDMI projector even the iPod Touch failed to display the signal.

    My suspicion is that the product is at the bleeding edge of specifications and thus highly unpredictable as to whether it will work with other devices.

    The best news is Apple / FedEx makes it easy to return. ;)

    Very short life span

    I bought this MAYBE 6 months ago. It seemed like exactly what I needed, at first. Fast forward to a short time later and we have to try it over and over again, sometimes 30x's just to get it to start going on the tv. I'm very disappointed

    Not 1080p

    Bought one yesterday. Used it to connect my iPad Pro 9.7 to a Samsung TV. I see the iPad screen on TV but it's not 1080p or sharp enough to enjoy. Waste of time and money.

    Not a real HDMI output

    This is not really an HDMI port added to an mobile device, it's most like a hard-wired Apple-TV. It does not output the native Retina resolution and add some lag in the display. Was hoping to get something like the old VGA out for iPad 2 and other device that output real time video but no, this so far from that, can't be used to convert an iPad into a desktop device. Not recommended. Apple should release a TRUE REAL TIME, NATIVE RESOLUTION HDMI output adapter for iPad to compete with the MS Surface.

    Weak product

    I used this adapter for months on my iPad Air and no problems only occasional screen freeze. Just unplug and reconnect most times to resolve. Now with no change the adapter does not work for my iPad Air. But it stil works for my iPhone 6 Plus only more screen freezing here. Very disappointed in this product and the support is non-existent it seems. Nothing at all changed on my iPad Air, not even a update recently. I do all the updates when they are released.

    Outrageously expensive, worked OK, but now cuts out if you move it

    Very lazy design, £40 is way too expensive for this. Why did Apple not mould the Lightning connector into the other end of the block so as to give a strong and rigid design. Most HDMI cables are heavy so inevitably the short stiff piece of cable that connects to the Lightning plug will be under bending loads however careful you are, and hence they fail early. Mine has lasted about 6 months and now cuts out if you so much as touch it - as have many other peoples if you read all the negative reviews. It actually worked very well before it started to break which is all the more frustrating. Shame on you Apple, selling expensive, poorly designed and badly made rubbish as accessories for your otherwise excellent kit. And there is no alternative source available as you have a monopoly. You should and can be so much better than this.

    DO NOT BUY! DOES NOT WORK!

    I bought this product around March/April 2015 and it worked perfectly fine...I probably used it a total of three times. Fast forward to Sept 2015 and when I plug it in I get NOTHING! I am beyond aggravated and angry! I take it back to the store and plug it in to their TV set up and it worked just fine! GGGRRRRR!! I don't know what the issue is and my nerves are too shot trying to figure it out! Bottomline, Apple you need to fix this issue ASAP! From everything that I've read, ever since the ios 8.4 update this adapter no longer works.
