    Great For What It's Meant To Do!

    • Written by Stephen M from RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA

    I'm a teacher and needed something that would project my Keynote's on my iPad 1, that's all. It not only works great with my iPad but also with my iPod Touch!

    I can see the day when I won't have to carry around my 15 inch MacBook Pro just my iPod Touch!

    I don't need to project anything else but my Keynote's. Works perfectly!

    To those that give it sub-par reviews because it doesn't mirror their iPad 1----read the fine print, it's not made to.

    Works exactly as planned

    • Written by Anonymous A from 6268

    Works exactly as I expected. Won't do sound, but perfectly mirrors my iPad 2 through the projector at my office. Keynote works great especially when using Keynote Remote on my iPhone 4 to control. No more tied to the table.

    Great for Pulpit Ministry!

    • Written by Anonymous A from 987

    As a pastor, I am more than pleased with the ease of connectivity to an LCD projector for pulpit ministry. This adapter makes it easy to just plug my iPad in and have immediate connectivity for Keynote presentations. Much easier (and more functional than) the previous mode of presentation (PC netbook).

    Works Great!

    Plugged it in to my iPad2, connected in the VGA cable the adapter, and immediately displayed my iPad2 screen through the projector. Could not have been simpler. Classic Apple simplicity.

    With an iPad 2, video mirroring is great

    • Written by Anonymous A from 4357

    When you plug this into an iPad 2, everything you see on your iPad you see on the screen. Great for videos, NetFlix, Keynote, and others.

    Work Great on IOS 4.3.2

    • Written by Anonymous A from 9869

    Originally only worked on Keypoint with previous IOS, but now it mirrors my iPad2 to TV with VGA input. I prefer the HDMI as the picture is crisper and it includes sound.

    Worth Purchasing if you like showing your presentations using iPad2

    • Written by Ian L from Apple Valley

    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. :)

    Excellent Product!!!

    • Written by Max Z from Glenside

    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.

    Accessory Works

    • Written by Anonymous A from 2959

    I just purchased this accessory tonight and it works great with my iPad 2. I agree JV from Portland in not listening and not agreeing with those having problems and leaving a 2-star rating. Those who have problems should READ BEFORE THEY PURCHASE or ask a salesperson for assistance that is what they are there for.

    Not sure what everyone is complaining about but this product works great! I haven't found an app yet that doesn't work. The only thing so far is the IPad won't output a protected movie through the iPad port.

    Works for ipad2

    • Written by JAMES V from Portland

    Product works perfectly for iPad2. All screens are displayed and all apps can be projected. Those that are having problems are using the original iPad. If you are thinking of buying this and have a ipad2 do not let the 2 star rating fool you. It works perfectly!

    Works perfectly

    • Written by Anonymous A from 9431

    Works perfectly! I can show Keynote presentations and files via GoodReader on the projector at work, and with the iPad 2 it'll mirror nearly any app as well. The original iPad doesn't have mirror capability but certain apps do support the secondary display (Keynote, GoodReader, Atomic Borwser, YouTube to name a few).
    Doesnt seem to use much, if any any, additional battery to drive the secondary display, either.
    I'm very pleased. 5 stars.

    Great adapter, must for all ipad/ipods/iphones

    • Written by Anonymous A from 3390

    I got this adapter to do a presentation in language arts at my school, and it works great. It even adjusted the resolution to fit that of the projector. It is definetly a must for someone who does presentations from an ipad or iphone or ipod. There are no flaws, except that a port for charging would be nice, but otherwise its perfect.

    iPad 2 - vga works like a charm

    • Written by Loren A from Brooklyn

    NOTE: These comments apply to the iPad 2 only.

    I am very pleased to say that screen mirroring on the iPad 2 works beautifully. Everything you see on the iPad 2 screen is projected through the vga connector. As you rotate the iPad 2, the projected image mirrors it exactly.

    Keep in mind that the vga connector is video only. To amplify the sound simply use an audio cable and connect through the external audio out.

    The only drawback with this connector is that there is no ability to simultaneously to simultaneously charge the iPad batteries while mirroring through the vga adapter. Because the iPad 2 has a long battery life, this should not generally be an issue if your batteries are fully charged. If you are concerned about the battery life, you can do a couple of things to lower the energy consumption on the iPad 2:

    * You can lower the iPad's screen brightness (found in the iPad's settings).

    * If you do not need to be using the Internet while projecting through the vga adapter, you could try setting your iPade to "Airplane Mode" (also found in the iPad's settings). Apparently there is a certain amount of energy consumed searching for WiFi and 3G signals. So disabling this search (by turning on the Airplane Mode) should lower energy consumption and thereby extend the battery life.

    My guess is that lowering screen brightness would really help to extend the amount of time you can view without recharging.

    iOS 4.3 & iPad 2

    • Written by Anonymous A from 5809

    The Apple VGA Adapter works seamlessly with my iPad 2. All the previous reviews no longer apply. I have my iPad 2 mirroring any and all applications using this VGA adapter. Of course, the only limitations (since it's a VGA output only) is no audio and depending on the screen, you'll get "black bars" on the left/right of image because the widescreen limitation can process correctly on most TVs or Projectors, but these are minimal. What you see on your iPad is what you see on the screen AND THAT's ALL WHAT I ORIGINALLY WANTED from this product.

    Works well with a few apps

    • Written by Anonymous A from 8227

    On the minus side, the cable is of apparent limited use. The vast majority of apps do not have support for the Apple VGA Adapter.

    On the plus side, if all you need is the combo Apple VGA Adapter + a web presentation tool + an iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Generation, then there are apps for that. Search the App Store for web presentation.

    Conclusion: If you need the VGA Adapter to browse the web or play videos, you are in luck ; if you need the VGA Adapter to project your favorite app, make sure that app explicitly supports external screens.

    This is a very specific product, know what you're buying

    • Written by Anonymous A from 6918

    This product is only useful if you are using it for its intended purpose: to allow apps that are written to create output on the external display to do so. I wouldn't buy this unless I had a specific app that I wanted to use with the external display and that app specifically said that it can provide that functionality if you buy this cable. That's it. It's not good for anything else. You wouldn't buy a microwave oven assuming it can deep fry and make toast. I know Apple makes us feel cozy with technology, but with tech gadgets you really have to do your research before buying.
