Galaxy Tab HDTV adapter,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung EPL-3PHPBEGXAR Galaxy Tab HDTV Adapter (Electronics)
Adapter works with my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (model 5113), no problems. It's a shame you can't find these adapters in the stores (I couldn't find it at Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Office Max or Office Depot), but even if you could, the price would probably still be better on Amazon. yeah, it's a bummer that you have to have the HDMI cable and the charger cable hooked in at the same time for the adapter work, but once you get some longer cables, it is not really that big of a deal. Plus it charges your tablet at the same time!

I have the same Tab 2 model (5113) and the adapter works fine for me. I plugged it into the 3rd HDMI input on the TV, which of course required me to change to that input setting with the TV remote. But I have to do that to play Blue Ray DVDs, so no big deal. Maybe that's your problem, Harris?

I did have to switch cables in the beginning- it did not want to work with my 15ft HDMI cable, so I switched to 10ft cable and that was ok. I found later that it works better with the 6ft cable. My 15ft cable is thin and I am noticing not as reliable even using with my laptop, so I don't know if that means it didn't work with the tablet because it's too long for the transmission to be completely successful or the cable I have is just cheaply made and faulty.

I am having this very same problem.. Not in any store and as expenive as $75! Does it matter what kind of HDMI cable we get? I have the GTP5113, Samsung 10 inch. Thank you!

It shouldn't matter what kind of HDMI cable you have, but I noticed that with the many different ones I have, the thicker and/or shorter cables worked best.

Thank you very much, Angela. Where did you order the adaptr from? On amazon, the $55 one, states not compatible with gtp5113, and I was thinking og getting it from samsung parts.com. Also, once I get all the connections, I can then see whatever is on my tablet, on tv screen, correct? Thx much for time an hhelp!

I ordered the EPL-3PHPBEGXAR directly from Amazon ($41), but it looks like they don't have it anymore so you could go with the one offered by a seller for $55. There is another one listed that should work (http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-HDMI-Adapt
Then once you have everything plugged in (including the charger cable), your TV will mirror the image on your tablet.

Thank you, Angela. I think I'll order from samsung and if any issues, I can return it, but at least I'll know it's the right one and their price isn't all that bad. Appreciate your help.
