After I started this thead... I bought myself an Apple TV... and using AirPlay I no longer use the HDMI dongle.
I mainly use it to stream movies off my computer via Air Video.. then from Ipad to my TV.. For $100 for Apple TV.. it was totally worth it to eliminate the hdmi cable and the clutter it came with.
Another positive is that with Apple TV, you can play your videos on to your TV using Air Video and still be able to use the Ipad for anything else.. like safari, games.. and etc... the HDMI cable can't do this....
Granted it does not mirror the ipad screen... Apple TV hit all of my objectives...

Apple TV is great but it won't show your keynote presentations or let you play Real Racing 2 in 1080P. It is great for steaming video and music from the iPad or your PC with iTunes.
One day my iPad won't need my PC and IOS 5 has me 95% there

I've ordered this 13' cable from Amazon. It's the same kind of super thin active cable as the $150 Monster cable but only costs $9.49 Wanted to post a link here but I'm not allowed to.
Let's hope it works with the adapter.
I've been using it for a few weeks now and it works great!!!
It's really thin and 1080p is no problem. You can only connect it one way though. There are arrows on the connectors which show you the direction of the signal.
I would recommend "Ultra thin HDMI cable" from SiliconMicroDisplay. I've got one from Amazon (A-A 6ft) and it perfectly works with my ipad2. Price is quite higher than the others, but since it's light, portable, and extremely flexible, it is worthwhile to use with $699 ipad. I'm a big fan of HMD and this cable can be used for it too.
