It works, it's cheap, what's not to love?

I'm using with Samsung Galaxy S2 (Sprint). Some specifics that were not clear to me:

* Does require connection (has microUSB on side of unit) from external AC adapter
* Power cable/AC adapter not included

For a quick overview of MHL see:

[...]

Packaging was OEM & didn't include instructions but rather a list of features. It was recognized by plugging in cables in any order. The way I found to be the easiest is:

* Plug in cables to adapter
* Plug in adapter to phone

Charging issues:

It does charge while connected but doesn't seem to keep up with the power consumption while playing media (Netflix streaming). This is my first & only MHL adapter so I'm unsure if this is a fault with the adapter or phone. When left idle (still mirrored to TV) it does charge.

The device works. I chose to purchase this rather than the "official" cable because I have had good experiences with after market cables, and the price was quite reasonable. And I was more than satisfied.

This is designed for phones/tablets/devices that support MHL, which is primarily used to attach these devices to HD TVs. Since not all TVs support power out through their HDMI ports, the device also comes with a side port for power via USB. This allows the device to push display to the TV while still charging so it doesn't drain while watching. Mine also shipped with an additional Micro-B to USB-A cable for the charge port, which was not pictured.

This was tested using an HTC EVO View 4G Android Tablet (Sprint) tablet and worked out of the box with no settings needing changed on the device. It was plugged into a Sony Bravia HX800 which immediately picked up the display output, and mirrored the output on the screen.

In order to know if this will work for you, you need to first make sure your device supports MHL (Just Google for your device and MHL support). Also, if you are not running stock firmware/ROMs on your device, MHL may not be supported, so make sure to check the distribution support lists. Otherwise, on stock hardware, this should be automatic.

This is a great way to show media, movies, etc. and control them on screen with your android devices. I am very pleased with this order, and very glad I didn't spend extra for the "official" adapter.

I was a bit skeptical because of the price.....
My fears were proven wrong, this thing WORKS!, it also comes with an additional usb cable to power the unit thus recharging the phone.
I tested it with a Virgin Mobile HTC evo V 4G, and it works great. One thing to keep in mind is that the tv will mirror the phone's orientation, so be sure to turn the phone to get the wide screen view......

This gives both HD video and HiFi audio when plugged into my Galaxy Note. Resolution is the full 1280x800 pixels of the phone display. HD videos played with DICE Player look great. And it costs next to nothing. delivered overnight by amazon Prime, a perfect transaction all around...

Bought two and nether worked. I even tried them with two different Galaxy S2's and on two different TV's. It woulda cost me too much to return the items so I took the loss. I wouldn't advise buying non OEM accessories like these from a third party unless it's OEM guaranteed!

Works great with Samsung Galaxy Express. Make sure to attach your charger to the adapter or it will not work. Also this works ONLY with the 5-pin mhl usb ports like on Galaxy SII, Galaxy Express...(also works with the HTC One X). But it does NOT work with the 11-pin mhl usb ports on Galaxy SIII and Note II. Also, it does not work well in combination with an HDMI to DVI adapter on a computer monitor.

It took me about 30 seconds to connect and get working. I used the USB port on my TV for power, connected my phone, and was streaming Netflix to my TV in less than a minute.

I can't get it to work. I tried with a couple different TVs. I'm probably doing something wrong. I tried with a galaxy s2.
