    This could be more Innovative

    • Written by Joel P from Manila

    A considerable lenght for the cable would make this connector the best for IPAD2. Suffice lenght from the VGA connector to the adapter is important.

    Got this item to present from Keynote, watch films and play games. So far I have not been disappointed. Real Racing 2 HD is a particular high point.

    Great for iPad 1 & 2

    • Written by Anonymous A from 5424

    iPad first gen does not support video mirroring. This adaptor will allow projection of keynote and video presentations.
    On iPad 2 all apps, even the home screen, are projected using the VGA adaptor.

    I've found it an excellent adaptor especially at auditoriums and lecture halls where VGA is still the connector of choice.

    I only wish you could charge the iPad simultaneously, hence the four stars.

    OK for Keynote presentations on a data projector

    • Written by David L from Glasgow

    Different people want this to do different things. I bought it to show Keynote presentations (imported from PowerPoint) on a data projector. Beast in question was at least eight years old, but iPad to VGA connection worked fine.

    What you have to realize, however, is this isn't like using a data projector with a Mac or PC. You only get any output to screen when you start the Keynote presentation. This threw me initially. Also, although there is a back arrow on your Keynote slide, I never managed to get this to work. Seemed as if you could only move forward during the presentation. (Someone please post a correction if this is incorrect. If not, it needs fixing.)

    Although I couldn't project the movie or TV show that were in Apple's 12 Days of Christmas freebies (digital rights protection, I assume, as others have reported), I could project short YouTube-type movie files I'd produced myself and which were on my iPad. (Didn't actually check the YouTube app.)

    Very, very good!

    • Written by Anonymous A from 8896

    I am a professor who is interested on taking the ipad to lectures and presentations. This little connector is very useful. The laser feature built in Keynote is fantastic. It does what I need, get the ipad connected to a projector to show my slides without the weight of my bulky laptop. Perfect for my needs!

    Good but more flexibility

    • Written by Anonymous A from 2248

    This is great for Keynotes and Web Video Content. I found it simple and easy to use but the limitation of iTunes Movies is a little disappointing. The Photo Slideshows are worth the £25 by themselves- they work great for presentations. Good, but room for improvement.

    What will the VGA Connector do?

    • Written by Anonymous A from 8571

    The VGA connector will display the following: 1) Your Youtube videos. If you are using the ipad dock then the speaker output on the ipad dock will not supply sound. You will have to use the audio output on the ipad itself. Hopefully, Apple will allow the use of the dock to have sound output while using the VGA connector. Even though the connection to have a sound output is on the back of the dock, you cannot use the VGA connector and speaker output on the dock at the same time. 2) The VGA connector will also display Keynote for your presentations. 3) The VGA connector will allow you to display your podcasts and videos. However, it will not allow you to display your purchased movies from itunes. I have been able to see about 5 minutes of my movies before the restriction is activated. However, this does demonstrate that the VGA connector is capable of displaying our movies if Apple will permit it to do so in the next version or software update. I have the 64GB 3G and I have spent the last few days playing with the VGA connector. Also, with the Youtube videos, it will not show until you actually activate a video in Youtube. Once the clip start showing it will transition through the VGA connector. It does what it is suppose to do but it can do a lot more and I am expecting Apple to make some upgrades to this adaptor and the ipad dock in the very near future.

    Apps support adapter for viewing websites, documents, etc.

    • Written by Anonymous A from 1742

    The iPad dock-to-VGA connector works fine, but you need an app to view more than just Keynote, slides, or video files with it.

    I've got three different ones installed: Expedition, Projector, and Web2VGA. I can display PDF, Word, Pages, Excel, Numbers, and other documents on a larger screen or through a projector via these apps, as well as display Internet browsing. These apps work in conjunction with email, DocsToGo, MobileMe, etc., to allow you to open a file in the app of your choosing. I haven't decided yet which one I like best, and they seem to work a little differently from each other so I'll probably keep them all.

    These apps also work with the Apple Component adapter cable, too.

    Now that I've found this solution to the limited built-in output options of the iPad, I'm very happy with this adapter. Just don't plan to watch HD movies on your new HD LED TV through the VGA cable. You won't be happy with the analog output on your big screen TV...

    I Love being able to watch movies and others on this. You can even show slide shows from it. Although, it only takes up about 80% of your tv screen horizontilly.

    It does what it says in the User Guide

    • Written by Anonymous A from 297

    Lots of people are complaining because they don't see everything that is displayed on their iPad/iPhone on the television. Of course you don't! This is clearly explained in the iPad User Guide (and, I'm sure, in the iPhone User Guide) on page 131/

    "When the cable is connected to a TV or projector, an application that supports playing
    video to an external display will automatically use it when playing video. Of the built-
    in applications, Videos, Photos, and YouTube support external video display."

    So, only apps that support playing video to an external display will make use of the cable connection.

    And yet, mine worked perfectly

    • Written by Anonymous A from 4505

    This might have something to do with the fact that I actually read the documentation for the apps I wanted to use with this to see if they are supported. I use this for business projection, with Keynote and with Goodreader (to display PDF's). The documentation for both apps said that projection was supported and shazam! They both worked as advertised!

    At the end of the day, it's your money and your responsibility to research what you're buying. I guess you could believe some kid in the Apple Store, but just because they call them "Geniuses" does not mean that they are (although I'm sure they are very smart).

    Bottom line, it's only thirty bucks and it works just fine. Do your homework first, buy it if it fits your needs and then you won't need to slam the product with a one star review that it doesn't deserve.

    Does what it says on the tin

    • Written by Anonymous A from 7331

    So what does it do? You can play slide shows quite happily on your TV/monitor. You can play any movies you like unless they are copyright protected. You can play TV like BBC iPlayer ... I use a belkin bluetooth audio receiver to play the sound through my hifi whilst watching iPlayer on my big screen TV .. great! For the money it does what it says on the tin ... I'd love an HDMI out version, but we'll just have to wait to see if Apple comes up with that

    iPad VGA Adapter - Safari output to VGA

    • Written by Anonymous A from 7190

    I've had my iPad for about a week. It's an amazing device, but for business and presentation purposes, limited by its inability to VGA project Safari browsing screens. Apple, if you want people to use iPad for business, this is a rush priority. Enable VGA projection of Safari output A.S.A.P.

    Displays slideshow for Keynotes for iPad

    • Written by Anonymous A from 4664

    I was interested primarily in using the iPad for displaying slideshows using Keynote. Keynote is of course the Apple iWorks presentation program that has been revamped to work on the iPad ($10). Keynote presentations display through the VGA connector to a projector only when you press the "play" button of Keynotes. When you do, the VGA connector will deliver the slide images to the projector while the iPad display changes to show a small control panel that allows you to advance or reverse the slides. If you press outside of the control box, it returns the iPad display to normal and you lose the VGA display.

    The iPad has certain limitations. When the VGA adapter is plugged into the iPad, there is no way to charge the iPad. However, given long battery life of the iPad, it should work for 10-11 hours from a fully charged iPad, longer that the longest conceivable lecture. The images were full resolution (1024x768) and may present problems with older projectors. The images displayed transitions, videos, jpeg images, omnigraffle images, a variety of fonts, etc. You cannot change the VGA resolution from the iPad. But, these were not serious limitations and I am planning to give most of my lectures using the iPad.

    Works as advertised

    • Written by Anonymous A from 7591

    Come on people, don't blame a connector for a limitation of the iPad hardware/OS! My only complaint about this connector is that you can't charge the iPad while using it. Failure to mirror the iPad 'desktop' has nothing to do with the connector and everything to do with 'higher level' limitations. I would give 5 stars if I could charge my iPad at the same time.
