    Does its job and does it well

    I recently started to use this AV adapter to watch Netflix on my TV with my iPad and it has been working great. The image and audio quality has always been impeccable. This also goes for all other video playing applications such as YouTube. While playing games, the display quality is also great and the latches on the adapter help keep it plugged in when I'm turning or rotating the device, which was a flaw of the older adapter. Although the adapter does do a good job of displaying photos on the TV, too, I prefer to browse my photos on my iPad (but this is just my preference).

    Other people have complained that the adapter would be better had it just been one cable that plugs straight into an HDMI port, but they forgot that the iPad should be plugged in and charging during TV-watching marathons (I like to watch more than one episode at once), so the way it is currently set up is ideal, in my opinion.

    All in all, this digital AV adapter does its job and does it well.

    Worked fine

    I have the new iPad and worked just fine. Just a pain because apples USB charging cable is so short. Why apple? We like cords to be at least 6ft!

    half a solution

    40 bucks for half a solution. Why didn't they make the cable so that it plugs into an hdmi port on your hdtv, instead of requiring a separate hdmi cord.

    Waste of Money

    For a $40 cable that doesn't work, I'm surprised it has such high reviews. I have tried this on my iPhone 4 with luck only once in showing a YouTube video; all other attempts (up to about 30 different TVs/monitors now) have failed and the device won't even be properly recognized by iOS 5. The only time it worked was on iOS 4.3, which I can't install now. Don't waste your money unless you have the latest iPad!

    Worth the 39$

    After using first the old adapter and getting the pop-up warning, i decided to buy the new version and try, can always return it, right?
    The new dongle looks a lot better on our TV, it seems crispier, rotation seems smoother. well worth the 39$.

    Needs to be updated for iPad (3rd generation)

    "New" iPad (3rd generation) owners beware: this adapter only puts out the resolution of an iPad 2. It doesn't fill any more of an external 1080p monitor than an iPad 2 would.

    Must have

    I purchased this product along with the new iPad3 yesterday. I tried it with my HDTV and desktop monitor, in both cases it worked flawlessly and beautifully . It perfectly mirrors the iPAD and I found the picture quality excellent when playing movies. Contrary to one of the reviews that indicated lack of locking mechanism, there is a locking/ unlocking mechanism which I found very easy to operate.

    Works Great

    This is a redesigned adapter that was released along with the new iPad. This model does have a clip that locks it in place, with a release tab on both sides. The mirroring function works perfectly, however some apps (such as HBO Go) do not allow mirroring. Overall, a great accessory.

    Works in spite of itself.

    I have to dock this product a couple stars because it doesn't work on an iPhone 4S, and it keeps falling out of my iPad 3's connector.

    If you connect the Apple Digital AV Adapter to the iPad 3, an alert will pop up saying "This Accessory is Not Supported." But it DOES actually work, and when connected to a 1080p TV it provides a choice of 7 UIScreen sizes, up to 1920x1280.

    So this adapter appears to be iOS developers' workaround for good HDTV external UI display until AirPlay and Apple TV catch up. (They only output 1280x720 even with iPad 3 and the 3rd generation Apple TV.)

    Serious Design Flaw

    THIS ADAPTOR IS ALMOST UNUSABLE. The dock connection does not have locking clips to secure the adaptor to the iPad or iPhone. The slightest tug on the HDMI cable or slightest movement of the iPad causes this adaptor to partly disconnect from the dock on the device. I know Apple can make a dock connection that locks; they used to ship a USB cable with older iPods that would lock into the dock connector and wouldn't disconnect unless one pressed both side buttons and then pulled the connector out.

    Look up, "Joe Sabia: The technology of storytelling" on TED to see a nice example of someone having to heavily tape an adaptor to an iPad to make it usable!

    This dongle is really fantastic.
    I used it with my iPhone 4S and my iPad2, it does everything I need.
    I think it is a new version since it only works with iOS 5.1 and it comes in a new package.
    it perfectly mirrors my devices and I can watch movies on the TV (with HD content the quality is great).
    For games is the must-have accessory. I'm looking forward for receiveing my New iPad, I'll get rid of my gaming consolle and use the new iPad when I want to play games on the TV.
    Totally worth the 39 bucks.

    Cool but not great

    I have the 1st Generation iPad it only works on watching movie and movie app (Netflix). All others won't send to TV some only get sound but no video (Photo won't work). Youtube OK.
    I did updated the OS to 5.1

    I use it on my iPhone 4S everything send to TV even playing games but will not show in FULL SCREEN.

    Overall - I like it since I purchase this adapter mainly for watching the movie on TV. Picture quality depends on the movie itself. HD movies are great. I choose this adapter over the Apple TV because I use my iPad in different locations and all I need is to bring this adapter.

    I was looking for something to stream my music directly to my receiver. My receiver has a sweet dac and I needed to bypass the iPhone and iPad dac and the adapter worked. Now my music sounds natural and warm.
