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.

      Been working fine for me for over a year now.

      I have no idea what everyone is doing to make their adapter die so fast. I use mine everyday to connect my iPad to my screen. I wish iOS had more functionality I have no idea what everyone is doing to make their adapter die so fast. I use mine everyday to connect my iPad to my screen. I wish iOS had more functionality other than mirroring and displaying video. It would be nice to have a video app in the background while I use Safari or something else for example as the video is playing on the monitor. Another request for version 2 is to allow the lightning in port to have more functions than just charging. I’d like to connect my Camera or Ethernet adapter to it (through the USB camera adapter, of course).

      Poor quality, over priced

      The cable split after a few uses. Speaking of uses...it would take many attempts for the adapter to connect. I tried a few working and one brand new HDMI cable The cable split after a few uses. Speaking of uses...it would take many attempts for the adapter to connect. I tried a few working and one brand new HDMI cable and it still hardly worked. Now it won't work at all.
