    Micro USB to HDMI® MHL Adapter - Black

    MHL is here!

    The Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is a new standard for use with tablets and smartphones. It sends the audio and video signals through the micro USB connector and converts it to an HDMI® signal for use on HDTVs. The signal remains in digital format throughout the entire transmission and conversion process, so no quality is lost.

    This adapter is designed to this new standard and allows you to connect your MHL device, such as an HTC EVO 3D or Samsung Galaxy S3, to your high-definition TV. It supports all video resolutions, including 1080p, and up to 8 channels of audio (for 7.1 surround sound). It also supports 3D video and HDCP media protection.

    Some devices (such as the HTC EVO 3D) can supply sufficient power from their internal batteries to drive the adapter. For others, or in the event you want to charge your device while using the AV output, you can plug your charger into the micro USB port on the side of the adapter.

    The current list of MHL compatible devices from the top three Android phone manufacturers includes the following devices. (Mouse over name for a list of associated model numbers.)

    Won't work with Cyanogenmod (GS3)
    Apparently this adapter and other MHL devices don't work on phones that are running the Cyanogenmod operating system, like my Samsung Galaxy S III (yes, i also bought the 11pin adapter). I got USB keyboards and mice to work though, so not all of my order was a waste of money :P

    Not giving a negative score because this supposedly should work on Samsung's OS.

    Works great on my Galaxy Note II. Note that you will need to purchase the 5pin to 11pin Micro USB Adapter (9716) as well.

    A Reliable Solution, Great Quality!
    This is quite possibly the simplest peripheral I've used, yet. There are no instructions included, but this is how it works:

    1.) Attach your charging cable to the micro USB port on the side of the MHL adapter. (You can use a wall charger, a PS3 or XBox 360 USB port (they're powered), or the USB port on your HDTV, since it does provide power.)

    2.) Attach the HDMI cable of your choosing to the HDMI port on the far end of the adapter.

    3.) Plug the micro USB cable end of the adapter to your phone.

    ...that's it. Seriously. If your device is MHL certified, it'll auto detect the HDMI connection and send it to your TV or monitor. No software configurations, or hardware detection required. It's literally plug and play, not plug n' pray.

    If you have a device with Beats Audio (such as a Droid by HTC), it will not allow the audio enhancement to go through. However, it will still allow 2.0-7.1 channels of sound to go to your A/V system (or TV), depending on the file or app being used.

    NOTE: This works with 5 pin micro USB ports. Some newer Samsung devices use 11 pins. If your device is one of those, you'll need the 11 to 5 pin adapter. You'll do the same thing you did here, but you're just adding the 11 to 5 adapter to the USB before the MHL adapter is attached to your phone. It's just one more step, but it's still super easy.

    I am really impressed with the quality and the price. The service and shipping was blazing fast, in fact... I received it a day early! Monoprice has won me over and has a customer for life. I can't recommend them enough.

    PROS: Easy to setup
    Easy to use
    Charges your phone while in use

    CONS: None

    Does the job at a good price
    Probably one of the best options for an MHL adapter I've seen. Low price and does the job it's intended for.

    On my original order, they misread the item number and sent me the wrong item, sending me a USB wi-fi adapter instead. After I reported the mistake, the quickly sent me the MHL adapter, and told me to keep the USB wi-fi adapter, and apologized for their mistake. Very good customer service if you ask me.

    PROS: Price, gets the job done

    CONS: None, except maybe a longer cable might be useful.

    power defecit
    Not sure if this happens with just the evo3d, or if mine is an isolated case, but it seems like this adapter is throttling power input from 1 Amp down to a lower mAh value, effectively draining the battery when the phone is heavily in use (e.g. streaming an hd video)

    PROS: video quality good

    CONS: power deficit?

    Doesn't Work with Nexus 4
    This was listed as an accessory for the Nexus 4 so I ordered it. It is not an accessory for the Nexus 4.

    PROS: Great Price

    CONS: Doesn't Work

    Work great with my htc one x
    You just hook the mini USB power cable for your phone into the device and plug it into your phone, I have an HTC One X, then HDMI hookup to TV or a monitor and it works great

    PROS: Let's me connect to HDMI TV or computer monitor.

    CONS: Phone gets hot if you try to play a game, but works good for watching videos.

    No worries. Buy it.
    I used this item to connect my Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) to various HDTVs via HDMI in order to watch 720p x264 videos stored on my phone. The cable worked as advertised with every TV I tried. However, there were a few initial adjustments I had to make with the application (decoding) settings for my phone's video player in order to get everything in perfect working order. This was pretty painless but may have caused a stumble for the casual user. Naturally this had nothing to do with the adapter. I use the app MX Player to play video on my Android that had Ice Cream Sandwich which was later rooted and upgraded to Jelly Bean + CyanogenMod. The cable caused no problems whatsoever before/after unlocking & rooting or with any of the several Android flavors that have been on my phone over the past year. This item is a safe bet to say the least.

    PROS: Worked as advertised for use with Android smartphone

    CONS: None

    it works like a charm
    I'm very happy with this adapter and would recommend it to everyone. Literary "plug & play"

    PROS: Adapter needs no setup, it works great.

    CONS: It requires external power even with my EVO 3D

    Love it. Way cheaper the the Samsung branded one.

    PROS: Works great as expected

    CONS: None
