      Excellent Product!!!

      I was impressed with the quality of this product. I needed the cable to hook my iPad 2 up the smart board in my classroom. I tested it on an old monitor from 1 I was impressed with the quality of this product. I needed the cable to hook my iPad 2 up the smart board in my classroom. I tested it on an old monitor from 1995 and it mirrored the iPads screen exactly. The reason some people gave it bad reviews was because they used it on an iPhone ,iPod touch, or iPad 1. It only plays videos and slideshows with those. The iPad 2 has full mirroring and it plays part of a pod sat that I wanted to show. Works great with keynote( love the laser pointer by the way)and all of the other apps. Very satisfied, I give it 5 stars.

      Worth Purchasing if you like showing your presentations using iPad2

      Just to give you all a heads up. This device works perfectly. If you have an iPad first generation or an iPhone 4, all it will do is show your Keynote Presentat Just to give you all a heads up. This device works perfectly. If you have an iPad first generation or an iPhone 4, all it will do is show your Keynote Presentations. Those devices do NOT support Desktop Mirroring and will not be able to display any other types of apps, except those that are made to work with your standard video out port. But with the iPad2, this works flawlessly. I use this in class and it will display any app I use: Keynote, Safari, Books, etc... even games! However, there is a program that will not run with this VGA cable. What kind of hack program does not display in VGA? I'll give you a hint... nah I will just spill the beans. It's ITUNES!!! Yes, that's right, ITUNES will not support Desktop Mirroring on iPad2 nor will it support Video Out with iPhone4 or iPad first generation. You will have to buy the HDMI adapter for that. :)

      Works Like A Charm

      I have an iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4S. It should first be noted that only the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 will display "live mirroring" of the display. Secondly, the I have an iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4S. It should first be noted that only the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 will display "live mirroring" of the display. Secondly, the iPhone 4, iPad 1, and iPhone 3GS; it will only display video from certain apps such as: YouTube, Photos (slideshow feature only), Videos, Netflix, and any other third party app that has added video out support (there's not very many out there). For the iPhone 3G, I receive an "Accessory not supported feature" and was not able to get any video to output. In regards to the iPhone 4S performance, it's crisp and sharp on any monitor I've hooked it up to. One downside that I've found is when I hook it up to my "vertical orientation" monitor. There are not any kind of settings on the iPhone to force a 90, 180, -90, -180 degree rotation. Newer monitors might have manual rotation in the settings; unfortunately, my Samsung 23" SyncMaster (from 2008) does not. Alternatives for non iPhone 4S and iPad 2 would be the "Component AV" cable that essentially allows you to connect to any TV that accepts video (yellow) and audio (red or white or both) which obviously covers most televisions over the last 15 years. I have personal experience with the iPad 1 using the component cable and it works great for playing YouTube videos (such as Sesame Street for my daughter) or photo slideshows (showcasing my photography). Overall it's a solid cable. I usually buy knock off eBay cables; but after my last experience buying the junky knock off component cable that was half the price of the Apple cable; I have regretted it (primarily due to the fact that it gets stuck in my iDevices and makes me feel like I have to rip it out dangerously to get it out).

      Doesn't work on iPad 2

      I teach iPad classes to adults. I've had iOS 8 since it came out. Suddenly my projection won't work anymore... I'm not paying another 30€ for a 0,30€ cable. T I teach iPad classes to adults.

      External VGA Monitor does not work with IOS 8

      I use the Mac and iPad to connect to external monitors for presentations, videos and showing Internet sites. I upgraded to IOS on my iPad 3. Now I am shocked to I use the Mac and iPad to connect to external monitors for presentations, videos and showing Internet sites. I upgraded to IOS on my iPad 3. Now I am shocked to learn it will not support the Apple adapter that I used with IOS 7. I cannot find any information on whether Apple intends to fix it. I also cannot find any information on a viable alternative. I am stuck.

      Doesn't seem to work with 8.0.2

I could use a variety of apps, YouTube, iTunes, Keynote, and Google Drive to display documents. Since downloading the 8.0.2 update, I have not been able to use this. Either nothing at all happens or I get a message saying it is not supported by this device (iPad 2). I have had the same issue with my generic HDMI adapter which worked fine before the update as well. Meanwhile, my three-year old Toshiba laptop connects just fine and displays whatever I want it to. Apple is roaring into the 1990s like no-bodies' business.
