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
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.
