Must have iPad accessory
Posted by: PDM777 from: Orange, OH on
What can I say...it just works. I use it when I travel. I load movies on my iPad and then when I am at the hotel or resort, I use plug in my adapter and the cheap $6.00 HDMI cable and I am good to go.
FYI: you don't need an expensive HDMI cable. DOn't let any one tell you differently.

Simple, Effective and Gets the Job Done!!
Posted by: HOST from: Cleveland, OH on
I use this adapter primarily on my "new" iPad and it works great. You just simply connect it to your iPad, run an HDMI cable to your TV and plug your charger into the other side of the cable and your iPad is on your HDTV. The only thing to note is that the adapter will display your iPad at a resolution that gets close to filling your screen...UNLESS you play video that uses the native iPad video player...in that case the video is FULLSCREEN and looks fantastic. Overall a must-have product if you own an iPad and an HDTV.

Seems to work well.
Posted by: Uzi3 from: Detroit on
Seems to work well with the iPad2 with iOS 5.1. Please note, this the the new 2012 version with locking plug. There are two release buttons on the side of the plug, don't forget to use them when disconnecting the unit. For the price, It should include a HDMI cable, but it does not. It really should be a one cord solution. This keeps me from giving it 5 stars, otherwise seems to work well.

Simple And Easy To Use
Posted by: NewYork82472302954 from: New York, NY on
The adapter is simple and easy to use -- plug it in and it automatically mirrors the iPad. I bought it to be able to hook up HBO Go to my television via my iPad's HDMI out, and it works flawlessly.
However, note that apps can block the HDMI out, so certain services -- such as Amazon Instant Video at present -- won't work with the HDMI, which is a bummer. Also, this uses the old non-lightening connector, so while it works with older iPads it won't work with the newer ones going forward.

Cancelled cable subscription..get this adapter!
Posted by: HomeEntertainmentGuy from: Clarksburg on
I wanted a way to see movies from Netflix, Hulu Plus, ABC, NBC, AirVideo, Itunes apps on my big screen. This adapter lets me do just that. The video and audio quality from the HDMI output to my flatscreen is excellent. I can catch up on all my shows from ABC and NBC apps. This adapter gives me more option beyond what my Apple TV has to offer.

It works... most of the time.

First, this is the *new* model that's supposed to work without issues (i.e. not showing 'unsupported device'). However it did until I updated to the latest iOS (fine... I understand).
I also understand that only newer devices can mirror otherwise it only displays on the HDMI output device.
With that said, it is not stable and I have to frequently remove and reconnect it (sometimes several times) to get it to finally display. Sometimes only sound comes out and not video. (Yes, I've tried it on several HD TV's with different cables and from iPhone 4, iPad (original), and iPad 2 (which is supposed to work 100%).
Just don't expect it to work 'straight out' like most Apple products do... because it doesn't.

I bought this device so my son could watch movies on the big screen. It works great, picture and sound quality are amazing. Another good thing about it is that you can charge your ipad while conected to the tv. Amazing.

Hooked this cable up with ZERO problems, no tweaking no adjustments. Used both our IPad and IPhone. Netflix worked perfect. 100% plug and play for me. Just the way I expected.

Great for displaying the iPad over HDMI
Posted by: DataDiva from: San Jose, CA on
It's a good connector for the ipad. Useful for hooking up to an HDMI port on a large screen TV and projecting the iPad and movies onto that.
