DO NOT ORDER
on January 3, 2013
Get your head out of your a** Amazon! I didn't read the reviews closely since the description is for a Samsung item I know to work fine. But, what I recieved is not the item described! Samsung makes 2 different MHL. One for the older generation Galaxy products which all use a 5-pin micro usb and one for the latest Galaxy products(Galaxy SIII and Note 2) which use an 11-pin micro usb. What I recieved was the Samsung 5-pin to 11-pin adapter that allows the older MHL to be used on the newer devices. The item pictured here is actually the pin adapter, but everything else about this listing is WRONG. I guess I should have been clued in by the fact that this listing has this MHL priced half of what everyone is selling it for and the avaerage price for the pin adapter. I've never had one in hand, so I didn't notice the picture is of an item that doesn't match the description. Looking at the other reviews, I'm not the only one this has happened to. I would boil this down to a non-Amazon seller problem, except Amazon is one of the listed sellers availabe for this product. I've been ordering a lot of products through Amazon for my employer for years problem free, but this is the 3rd order in a month that has been totally SNAFU. I work 2 blocks from the amazon offices in Seattle and personally know quite a few employees(good and smart people) and all I can say is that, I realize I-502 passed but you guys should seriously not be this stoned on the job. Come on Amazonians, you seriously need to fix this!
In short, if you want to connect your phone to an external monitor and you don't want a big frustrating situation that will waste your time and money, DO NOT ORDER THIS PRODUCT.
