I have never had an apple product with this terrible of quality. For $50 should definitely last longer especially not used much and always put up when not in use. Would not recommend wasting your money.

      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 vid 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.

      Not up to Apple Standards

      Worked for less than a year. Then the charge port went bad, so now you have to charge an extra device somewhere else so you can continue to watch the game. Wh Worked for less than a year. Then the charge port went bad, so now you have to charge an extra device somewhere else so you can continue to watch the game. What a loser. If I knew how to send this piece of junk back I would.

      Finicky after 3months

      Reminds me of when I was and had antennas, have to adjust and hope that it works. If it does work, nobody better touch it. If I have to pay that much amount to Reminds me of when I was and had antennas, have to adjust and hope that it works. If it does work, nobody better touch it. If I have to pay that much amount to go back in time, then it’s not worth it.
