      Unaware of limitations before purchasing

I wish I had known this before purchasing the connector. The Apple Store description says the connector will display slideshows and movies, but I didn't realize that was it...

      Very limited!

      Limited to certain apps and even movies that were purchased through the iTunes store are blocked from displaying. Apple should be more specific about this!

      What were they thinking??

      Seriously, what was Apple thinking in creating a VGA adapter that doesn’t act like any other VGA adapter that’s been on the market for 15 years! This is not an Seriously, what was Apple thinking in creating a VGA adapter that doesn’t act like any other VGA adapter that’s been on the market for 15 years! This is not an adapter. This is a “VGA Filter”, and it filters out all WYSIWYG operations, the dock screen, all applications except YouTube and KeyNote, and the video player (does not output HD DRM movies). You guys need to learn how to properly label this stuff. I am definitely returning this useless item. How hard is it to split the internal VGA signal and mirror the screen? I’m an App developer who was about to demonstrate this great and wonderful program I made to for my company, but I couldn’t get the dang thing to connect to my projector or screens! Come on guys! There is no way your “magical and revolutionary device” can be used in a normal business and productivity setting if you are going to peddle over-priced, crummy accessories like this.

      Does't mirroriPad2 desktop ( NOT App Dependent)

      The packages says it allows mirroring of an iPad2. It doesn't, not even the basic iOS desktop without any apps running. The iPad was connected to an LCD proje The packages says it allows mirroring of an iPad2. It doesn't, not even the basic iOS desktop without any apps running. The iPad was connected to an LCD projector we've used for several years with a variety of laptops running Win XP, Win 7, Win 8, The projector could not detect ANY incoming video signal from the iPad.

      Doesn't Work with iOS 7.1.2

      Worked very well up to the latest upgrade of iOS 7.1.2, now just gives "this accessory is not supported by this iPad error". Completely useless and a waste of Worked very well up to the latest upgrade of iOS 7.1.2, now just gives "this accessory is not supported by this iPad error". Completely useless and a waste of money, much like the Camera Connection Kit I bought. Avoid this or avoid updating your iPad. Utterly pointless spending more money for official Apple stuff when it doesn't work.
