    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.

    Never leave home without it

    I've had this connector for at least two years now. I keep it in my purse or in a pocket where ever I go. It's never stopped working. The inly time I've ever had issues with it, all it took was a little cleaning of the actual connectors (the little gold plates on the lightning end & a little cleaning in the HDMI end) and TA-DA!! -- no more problems. I'll be buying another one as a gift for each of my parents this Christmas since they finally got iPads this year.
    Very happy with this product. It works well, & mine has stood the test of time for 2 years. I've kept it safe, dry, stable, & clean, and I've had no issues at all EVER.

    It is working for me

    Well time to time it stops working for me. But I realized when I restart my iPhone by pushing both power and home button for 10 seconds, it starts working again. Well this happens with my computer too when I plug the HDMI to a projector sometimes I need to restart my computer right? :)

    Product worked wonderfully the first few times, stopped working after a couple of months of minimal use. Not worth the money. You'd be better off buying one from a gas station, it would probably last longer too.

    Ok so latest iPad, latest software and nothing. I am not going to tinker around with something I pay good money for. I have better performance with my now very old iPad 2 and its hdmi adapter. I was a fan of everything apple but it seems they have lost it and I am now looking for alternatives. I hope I can give it NO stars but I have to give one. It feels like rewarding poor and very bad quality.

    'almost' perfect!

    From my usage, over the past year, almost everything on your iPad will appear on your TV screen, except, BT Sport! They have just changed to the Google Chromecaste adapter. It's still worth buying for all it's other applications!

    2nd lightning connector

    Bought the lightning connector in May '15 - worked perfectly for all devices (iphone 6,iphone 5, iphone 5C, ipad air). After abt a month, it didn't work for the iphone 6, then followed by the rest of the devices. Had it replaced (under warranty) a week ago-9 Oct 15. Worked perfectly, then gave the same problem for the iphone 6 - nothing on the TV screen. Currently still ok for the rest of the devices. At a loss of what is going on with the product.

    iPad Air and iPhone Lightning HDMI adapter FAIL

    Not a new issue, but fed up with Apple after years of intermittent function and compatibility issues with HDMI-out adapters. Saw it with the old 30 pin adapters and the lightning adapter is equally unreliable. I don't care if it's an OS update issue or a cable/hardware issue, the bottom line is they do not work with consistency. It will work well for a one week long vacation, then 4 months later with the same hardware and setup doesn't work at all. Apple Support's lack of explanation or guidance and the exorbitant price add insult to injury! Use a non Apple platform if you want to reliably out put to a TV or projector.

    As others; worked for a few months, doesn't work now.

    I think it's an update that is the cause of the issue. I get a message saying that the cable is not certified. It's an apple product and it's not certified? Not the quality we'd expect from Apple. If it is a software update that has caused this maybe, it's a shame that they didn't check this functionality before pushing update. A lot of people are dependant on this.

    Expensive failure

    I bought one of these in January and while it worked well initially, after 8 months it just stopped working. If I had paid £5 for one from China I might not be surprised, but at over £30 for a genuine Apple product, this is just not good enough. I am now trying to get a refund/replacement but have little faith that another one will do much better, particularly having read so many recent reviews showing these failing after only hours of use.
    I used to think Apple produced a high quality product but my experience with this leaves me very much in doubt and I would be reluctant to spend any significant sum on any of their products if this is the level of quality I can expect.

    Great Product

    After reading all the reviews, I was skeptical. But I've had no issues with the cable and it is so much easier for me to share something through the cable than to do it off AirPlay or anything. I agree its kinda pricey but worth it for the time it saves me. Just plug up and it's ready to go.

    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.

    think twice :(

    Worked for a few months, then it just stopped working. nothing shows on the screen. the ipad air detects the cable and the tv detects the hdmi but it wont display the ipad's screen on the tv. come on apple! think twice before spending fifty bucks!
