    "it good...Love it...Apple's use of the lightning port for sound is a bit of an issue for those of us who want to use a nice set of headphones to listen to music....but this little adapter allows you to connect any set of 3.5mm headphones to your iPhone....Although this product is another quality product from Apple and a must with the iPhone 7, I find it very annoying that an additional, tiny little adapter is needed for all the headphones I already have bought to work with my phone."

    "Good !...5 star...I love this thing I was able to stream a live football game from an Ap on my iPhone to my tv, doesn't mater what your using it for if its on your iDevice screen it goes to your tv screen ... Requires a HDMI cable also FYI...Not a full resolution unit and you kind of have to play around with the cord in order to get a connection going, but overall a great option for watching Netflix if you're in a hotel or you don't have internet access other than your phone."

    "5 STAR...I like...We could have ordered the right power adapter for cheaper (and waited days for it to arrive in the mail), but if you need a power adapter today, and can pick it up in store, this one is a great choice....My recommendation: if you can, ask a Best Buy associate to help you make sure the adapter plug is a perfect fit for your machine in all respects, diameter and length, or the pins in your machine can be damaged by a halfway-fitting plug."

    "It work...4 stars...Sure, there's a cheaper, smaller, and still a respectable option with the 5 Watt AppleR Charging Cube, or those cheap non-recommended square knock off version charging cubes that will work at least until you get home from the discount store, but be prepared to wait for the power to deliver at a much slower speed....This keeps up with an iPhone without an issue, and most iPads, but if you are heavily using an iPad Pro you will find that the battery slowly drains, even with this in place and engaged."

    "A plus...Not bad...I bought a Mac laptop about a year and a half ago and I love it, it's good quality, nice appearance, and fast... The problem is they don't extend their craftsmanship to their charger... When I owned a dell I used the same charger for five years, now 1 1/2 years after owning the Mac the charger already went out....It works fine, and I'dn't recommend that someone get a copy cat charger unless I knew of one that is safe so yes, I guess I'd recommend to a friend but only because the alternative could be worse."

    "5 star...Not bad...It does need to be jacked into a phone outlet as well as plugged into an electrical outlet and we only have two jacks, so I lost an outlet beside my bed which means I gave up a lamp, but other than that quite useful....This USB adapter antenna is pretty good giving me a moderate signal from a router (about 40 or so feet away) The 5ghz signal increased the speed of my internet by quite a lot over the stock 2.3ghz wireless card and I am very happy with the purchase."

    "Spot on...Love it...The plus is that you are getting a quality Apple product and the interchangeable charging prongs (to switch it from a standard charger to a travel one with folding prongs) are a nice touch....Would give it 5 stars if the price was a little lower but I'd much rather pay a little extra for a real Apple cord rather than go cheap and get a generic cord that could ruin my computer."
