I included a quick video sample I did for a longer 3G iPad review.

Sorry the video is choppy, but I thought it would help having a visual.

----------

If you know how limited this item's capabilities are prior to buying it,
you should be OK.

You can play movie YouTube, movie you bought from iTunes and project type via certain apps.
Sadly, NetFlix did not work.

If you were hoping you could see all things iPad on a computer monitor or TV, you will be bummed.
I was sadly disappointed. I will still be doing presentations on my MacBook I guess :-)

The output looks nice, but it is not as nice as the visuals actually look on the iPad itself.

I hope the video helps.

Most of the negative reviews here are focused on the fact that this adapter does not do what the buyer hoped it would do: (Simply) mirror everything that's on your device screen onto a larger screen. Here's what Apple's description says:

"Watch slideshows and video on the big screen in up to 720p by connecting your iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (4th generation) to a television, projector, or other VGA-compatible display.
The Apple VGA Adapter connects to your iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad Dock or Universal Dock via the dock connector and to your projector or display using the VGA adapter.
Mirroring supported only by iPad 2.
Video out supports up to 1080p for iPad 2 and up to 720p for iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod touch (4th generation). Movies play at up to 720p."

That should be LARGE PRINT, not fine print. If you want the mirror function you need an iPad2 and it will work great. If you are OK with only certain apps working, you can also use it for iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod touch. That sucks, but hopefully with this review people are warned and can decide if it is worth the money.

If you do a search for videos of the ipad to vga out and cydia's free app called TvOutTuner, you will see that if you jailbreak your iphone or ipad, you will get access to put anything and everything onto the screen. This adapter works flawlessly if you have a jailbroken ipad or iphone and have that app installed.
Try it out if you're tired of Apple's control over the product that you purchased.

This accessory is a total rip off.

One would think that you should be able to mirror what you see on the iPad on a TV or monitor, but it does not work like that...

Instead, it is up to the application developer to output video on this thing. What does this mean? that almost none of the apps in the App Store use this cable, and there is no way to force the iPad to mirror those application displays on your TV or monitor.

To add insult to injury, Apple's own Keynote App, which I was thinking of using for presentations, does not work with this thing. Oh the irony...

I think Apple should provide an option in Settings where we, users, decide if we wish to replicate the iPads's video on an external device (and by default the option should be set to YES, otherwise, why would you buy this connector and plug it into the iPad?).

And do not get me wrong, I love Apple products (I own an iPhone, an iPad, and a MacBook Pro), but this is simply ridiculous...

I can only imagine that Apple will be releasing some future update that will allow this connector to "mirror" the primary display. Having spent some time developing in HTML5, I bought the connector so that we can do presentations of what I've accomplished. Apparently, this isn't do-able, and I consider it a strong miss on Apple's part. I will not return the connector, in hopes that Apple will fix this in some future release, but it is a disappointment.

I am an academic who is interested on taking the ipad to lectures and presentations. This little connector is very useful. The laser feature built in Keynote is fantastic. It does what I need, get the ipad connected to a projector to show my slides without the weight of my bulky laptop. It also shows movies and youtube videos. Perfect for my needs!

Bottom-Line: Overall I do not like the "Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter - Video Adapter" for all the reasons listed in the review.

One of the downsides of having a minimalist's device like an iPad is the scarcity of connections. If you are watching a movie on your iPad and want to see it on a larger screen, say a large screen LCD display, there is no way to do so natively. But of course Apple has an answer in the form of the Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter - Video Adapter albeit a decidedly substandard one.

But now I am evaluating the usefulness of the iPad in our corporate environment, so along with an Apple iPad 64GB 3.G Tablet, I also ordered an Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter - Video Adapter for an additional $29.00. The device is simple enough; one end is a large VGA connector, on the other is a proprietary male connector that plugs into the bottom of the iPad, or the Apple keyboard dock for iPad.

The all-white, 10" Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter - Video Adapter can be used to connect an iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (4th generation) to your television, projector, or VGA display. You can then view your videos and slideshows on the big screen. However, the device cannot be used to view slide shows from presentation programs like PowerPoint, but of course Apple Keynote will work.
