      Outrageously expensive, worked OK, but now cuts out if you move it

Why did Apple not mould the Lightning connector into the other end of the block so as to give a strong and rigid design. Most HDMI cables are heavy so inevitably the short stiff piece of cable that connects to the Lightning plug will be under bending loads however careful you are, and hence they fail early. Mine has lasted about 6 months and now cuts out if you so much as touch it - as have many other peoples if you read all the negative reviews. It actually worked very well before it started to break which is all the more frustrating. Shame on you Apple, selling expensive, poorly designed and badly made rubbish as accessories for your otherwise excellent kit. And there is no alternative source available as you have a monopoly. You should and can be so much better than this.

      Rubbish

      I find it annoying that we are being forced to buy an item from a sole supplier when obviously other manufacturers can do it better (Belkin springs to mind). I I find it annoying that we are being forced to buy an item from a sole supplier when obviously other manufacturers can do it better (Belkin springs to mind). I used the adapter once and it failed on the second occasion (and I am not the only person to have this problem). So Apple, please give the licence to someone who know how to produce a reliable product and you stick to making things that you know about. (why is it not possible to give a zero star rating as that is a better reflection of the quality of this adapter?).

      Expensive failure

      I bought one of these in January and while it worked well initially, after 8 months it just stopped working. If I had paid £5 for one from China I might not be I bought one of these in January and while it worked well initially, after 8 months it just stopped working. If I had paid £5 for one from China I might not be surprised, but at over £30 for a genuine Apple product, this is just not good enough. I am now trying to get a refund/replacement but have little faith that another one will do much better, particularly having read so many recent reviews showing these failing after only hours of use. I used to think Apple produced a high quality product but my experience with this leaves me very much in doubt and I would be reluctant to spend any significant sum on any of their products if this is the level of quality I can expect.

      Frustrating

      After several of these adapters, I give up with it, I use this adaptor for my stereo in my car but a loose connection within the cable occurs after a couple hou After several of these adapters, I give up with it, I use this adaptor for my stereo in my car but a loose connection within the cable occurs after a couple hours of use. Apple recommended me to test the cables I use in the car (lightening cable & hdmi cable) And even changed the cables to new cables and admittedly it started to work after only for it to stop working a day later. I personally think this adapter damages your HDMI cables causing it to have a loose connection making music or video to cut in and out whenever the cable is moved especially going over bumps in the car is frustrating. Apples only suggestion was to buy another cable which was in warranty and to continue to change it whenever it broke causing me ongoing inconvenience

      It's okay,

      I used it for my iPad Pro, it works fine with TV progammes with iTunes and Netflix. So far the only app that didn't work is Sky Go. Otherwise it's working fine.
