MHL to VGA Adapter, Black
Display the video from your Android™ device on your VGA monitor with this MHL® Bridge to VGA and Stereo Audio Adapter from Monoprice!
This adapter uses the Mobile High-Definition Link® technology to convert the micro USB output from your Android phone or tablet. The adapter has three short cables attached. One cable has the micro USB male connector to plug into the phone or tablet. The second cable has a female micro USB connector, which should be connected to a USB power source to power the adapter. The last cable has a female 3.5mm stereo audio jack and is intended to connect to an AV receiver or a pair of self-powered speakers.
The adapter supports uncompressed video up to 1920x1080p, 2-channel stereo audio, and the HDCP copy protection protocol.
The current list of MHL compatible devices can be found on the Official MHL Consortium Website.
* The Samsung Galaxy S® III, Galaxy Note® II, and Galaxy S4 require the use of an 11-to-5 pin Micro USB adapter to use a standard 5-pin MHL adapter.

PROS: It is very handy for testing all kinds of video hookups.
CONS: To many connections. A fundamental flaw in the design 5/11 converter I need to hook this to my S4 is the length of the plug that goes into the phone is to short in many cases (manufacturing variation). The length as designed works every time if you have the phone with no protective cover. In fairness the plug is not actually to short the body housing the adapter is to large and interferes with the connection. I suspect the vast majority of failures involving the 5/11 converter are just this issue.
CONS: Samsung Galaxy Nexus-Looking to hook nexus up to projector. Received first one-screen all green-Received 2nd one and picture was cut in half. So long story short don't buy unless monoprice actually tests it before it ships out. Love Monoprice but this item is defective!
PROS: Looks good
CONS: Does not work
Connected VGA cable from monitor to MHL-VGA adapter
connected speakers to MHL-VGA adapter
plugged phone power chord into the MHL-VGA
plugged the 11 pin to 5 pin adapter into my phone,
plugged MHL-VGA adapter into the11 pin to 5 pin adapter.
"HDMI connected" shows on phone and vga screen showed desktop of phone.
also works fine with my friends GS2 without the 11 to 5 pin adapter.
only con is the aspect ratio issues but it is still better to watch it on the bigger monitor.
PROS: Worked to output to my monitor on vga when the dvi input of my monitor would not accept the hdmi signal with a hdmi to dvi adapter.
CONS: Monitor is 4:3 aspect and hdmi output is 16x9. the resulting video is stretched tall and there is no way to adjust this.
PROS: Works great
CONS: Nothing yet
PROS: the item was received in less than a week and works great
PROS: Works well converting signal on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition with the recommended 5pin to 11pin Micro USB Adapter for MHL Adapters and Samsung Galaxy SIII & S4. No trouble communicating between tablet and VGA projector. Build quality seems solid.
CONS: None really. I did have trouble with the female 3.5mm jack at first I could not get the male speaker jack to fully engage, but firm pressure (more than I've had to use with other jacks) worked. Once you figure this out, there are no cons.
PROS: ...wait and see. -)
CONS: I just thought I could plug this into the micro USB on my cell phone and it would work. Evidently I need another cable or adapter to make this work... I missed what it said in the description, "The second cable has a female micro USB connector, which should be connected to a USB power source to power the adapter."
I would think that if it needed power it would have put a standard USB in place of this female micro USB connecter. Either that or this is for some other device than a cell phone and a PC and I'm simply confused.
PROS: Works with Samsung S2 cell.
CONS: Does not have signal recognition on two different VGA projectors or a VGA connected monitor.
Thank you for your review. Please note that the Samsung Tab 4 is not MHL compatible so it will not work with this adapter.

PROS: Hard to say if I can't get it to work.
CONS: Doesn't work. Hooked up to Samsung notepro 12.1 to vga projector and the projector doesn't see it and no image is produced.
