Part of my hope in buying this was that I would use less screen life if my iPad by watching things on the TV. When watching Netflix it just mirrored my screen which didn't accomplish my goal. When I tried plugging my iPhone in, it showed a message on the screen that said "now playing on TV" while the movie played on the TV. For some reason it only did that the one time. That would have been the ideal for me when plugged in to my iPad. I played around in the settings to see if there was a setting I could fix, but came up empty. Using Amazon Prime, the iPad became an Xray second screen that showed who the actors were in that scene, while the actual movie played on the TV.
The picture quality wasn't great when I was streaming from my phone. Playing downloaded movies had a better picture quality (which makes sense). But the quality still wasn't what I expected. It wasn't terrible, but it felt like I was watching an old pre-hd DVD. Which isn't terrible, but when I can watch it in HD on my iPad, it seemed like a downgrade. I saw reviews online about the picture not filling the screen. I did have to adjust the picture size on my TV to make it full the screen when I was watching Netflix. Amazon Prime filled my screen on its own.
Over all it just seemed like it wasn't worth it. If Netflix would have suspended play on my iPad, it would have helped. If the picture quality would have been better, it would have helped. But without those two things it just didn't seem worth it. Especially because the iPad is 12.9" already. I might have been more willing to accept the flaws if I was trying to play movies from a smaller iPad or from my iPhone.
