    great product but pricey

    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.

    Terrible Quality - Insane Price

    My new iPad with this adapter has a worst image than may old iPad 2 with the regular (30 pin) adapter. And it is more expensive.

    Works but the cable is too short.

    As Christopher G, I just bought Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS and installed it in my 2008 VW Polo and works perfect!!!
    The same 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.
    The same 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.
    I really need a Female to Male thunderbolt cable extension.

    Works just fine

    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......

    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.

    Does exactly what it says it does. As soon as I plugged it in EVERYTHING on my iPhone appeared on my TV's. Great product.

    to Valeri F

    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.

    Good but...

    With iphone 4s it does what you expect it to do in general but when you watch a movie, you can't change language! There is no way to change the language when plugged in and if i change language before i plug it, it switch back to original language by itself so i guess my choice of language is not important for apple!!! So i paid 6$ for nothing and we had to go rent the movie at the video store... I will not rent a movie on itunes again unless they create a solution fir this issue.

    Just out of the box so early thoughts only!

    Hummed and harred about buying this based on other reviews about the ability to watch BCC iPlayer and other streamed content. There does seem to be an issue with some streamed TV content. TVCatch Up (the online live freeview service) would not mirror to the TV I had my iPad connected too. However BBCiPlater worked fine with both live and watch again content and YouTube also worked fine.

    The big test will be when I swap over the SKY mobile code from the laptop to the iPad to see if that will mirror ok.

    I'll post again after I've tried this and on the whole a good bit of kit.

    Works as intended

    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.

    Worked OK for awhile

    I also have reached the stage where the adapter only works when I manipulate the cable just right. Otherwise, no sound, no picture or sound, or fuzzy picture. If you aren't supposed to bend the cable tail, then make it rigid so there's no chance of creating a short. Poor design for the price. When it works, it's great, but it takes a few minutes each time I use it to dial it in. And then, don't bump it!

    Fine with Netflix

    I thought this was a bit expensive but I needed it so got it anyway.

    I hadn't realised that there were issues with certain apps not working with this adaptor.

    I bought it for mirroring my screen and mainly for watching Netflix on my HDTV.

    For Netflix it works fine. In Netflix while choosing a film, the HDMI output shows a full screen Netflix logo, while playing the film the HDMI shows the movie as you would hope while the iPad screen shows a static Netflix logo.

    RUBBISH!!!

    Absolute bag of rubbish! Whats the point in this product if you cant even stream videos from SkyGo, BBC iPlayer.. e.c.t!!?! Just wasted so much money on this and it doesnt even do what i wanted.. Not forgetting the fact that the one i have bought is faulty and you have to push and hold the hdmi cable in for it to work along with the fact that it doesnt even stream it in HD!! The actually quality on my phone is better!!!! So angry at the poor quality of this product, unbelievable from apple, disgusted! DO NOT BUY IT!!!

    not supported?

    I have had the adapter for about a week, it works with hdmi and audio out for about 2 minutes, then it says accessory is not supported by iphone, and stops sending audio, and video out. Then I have to turn my phone off, and on again for it to work (for 2 minutes) Horrible

    AV Adaptor

    This is poor and their advertising is misleading . The resolution is poor and it doesn't go 'full screen' to the TV like the old cables do. so your movies will be small and not the size of your TV. Apple dropped the ball on this one. I want my money back :-(

    Blocked by almost ALL video streaming apps, no 5.1 surround

    This adapter does not "mirror" what is shown on your screen, but rather "streams" it to your TV. This feature is blocked by DRM on almost all popular streaming video apps, including Amazon Instant Video, DirecTV, LoveFilm, 4od, BBC iPlayer. etc.

    As another reviewer stated, the Lightning adapter is a step back from the previous iPhone HDMI adapter which did support full surround sound.

    Doesn't work well

    The item works when it want, and its so so anoying because if you want to watch a movie or a sitcom you can't because if the device recognize the signal the tv not. You can see the blue light at the clock but the conection fails... 50 bucks? I feel very very cheated...

    Help

    The lightning to HDMI works great for my TV and for my new laptop computer but I purchased it for a projection unit and that unit has no HDMI. Is there something I can connect between the HDmi and the projector units to get sound and video? If so please let me know, Thanks in advance.
