    I tested the following projector using the VGA Apple OEM cable to a Epson EX 21 using MS PowerPoint converted automatically to Apple Keynote on my iPad 2, it worked without a hitch. The only thing I didn't try was using the 3.5 mm to external speakers.

    I was very happy this worked , It even mirrored my iPad 2 before I started the presentation.

    Cool
    I'm going to order the HDMI adaptor in a few weeks. I have a projector as a tv in my bedroom.
    I'm going to use it to teach my 5 year old daughter reading and math. There are a lot of kids apps in the app store. They like super why.

    Awesome! I wonder if you can mirror games and play them and if they're any fun.

    They sure didn't have things like this when I was growing up. My children are spoiled with Items but they are well behaved. I can't believe the stuff parents seem to ignore when they are in public. I see these kids and think "Wow, I’m so glad my kids don't behave that way." Also my wife and I take an active role in their education.

    Ncaissie, working with children I feel the same way. Not just public but what behavior they "support" at school. But enough unpleasantness before I have to go deal with more of it today.

    Ya my jaw keeps hitting the floor each time I see iMovie and GarageBand. I'm not quite that old but I did use a two deck VHS editor back in high school. To see the whole package and then some residing rather happily in something as small/thin as an iPad continues to blow my mind. Of course I have yet to find a method to properly impart that *aw* to the kids I work with.

    I'll be testing mine when rolls from the local distribution center to me :D. We've got projectors all over the building.
