This Product Does Not Work For Me

Won't work for any of my new or old mhl Samsung devices. This is a waste of money and more importantly your time. Do not buy this! By Samsung's adapter instead.

  • from Kitchener, ON

Bought this worked for the evening, now it does not

Going to return it,tv shows no signal. Frustrating profuct. I was at Best buy 99.999 % it would work,but he forgot to say how long! I will return for a refund.

Works fine on Samsung S4 but charging is slower than drain

For all of those out there that think this doesn't work you need to complete one extra step not listed in the manual. You have to go into the Accessories section (under My Device) of the Setup on your phone and then to Audio and change it to Surround from Stereo (make sure the cable is disconnected from the phone). Mine didn't work prior to that but I used the trusty tool called Google and found the answer in minutes. Was watching video from my phone in minutes after that.

NOT CHARGING-Rocketfish HDMI to MHL Adapter

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet gets audio & video but will not charge.

  • from Lethbridge, AB

Plug and play

Thought I needed to get an app or change some setting to get it to work as when I first tried without the adapter it did not work. One plugged in with the adapter it worked as it they were made for each other. It does not need the USB power to work but it does slows the power drain on the phone if running for hours at a time.

I found this product works perfectly fine on the Note 3. Giving it a 4/5 because, the actual charging time is not as fast as the battery life it uses - for example, I started with 57% batter life and after 2 moves I had about 12% left. This is with charging. Another con is the cables don't fit as snug as I would like them to. I feel if the cable were knocked over they might come apart. Overall, it does what it says. Easy to set up without even reading the instructions.

Sort of works

I tried this with my new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet and it did not work at all other than charge my device. I tried it with my Note 3 and it worked for video & audio but would not charge my phone. I exchanged it for the more expensive Samsung branded cable which worked perfectly on both my devices; however I found that I got better results on both devices using a Chromecast.

  • from Barrie, ON

Works on some Samsung devices

This works with my Note 3 phone if I use the included adaptor but it does not work with the new Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 which is what I really bought it for. I will return this item.

  • from Orillia

Doesn't work for galaxy s3 samsung using different pin sy

  • from Mississauga, ON

Doesn't Work

I bought this because the website recommended it for Samsung devices. I tried everything to get this to work with my Samsung Tab S and researched all trouble shooting possibilities online and the TV never recognized my tablet but did recognize that an MHL device was present... Very frustrating experience.

  • from Calgary

Doesn't work with Samsung Galaxy Gadgets!

Don't waste your money! I tried it with my Galaxy S4; it didn't work, tried it on Galaxy Tab 4 and Galaxy Tab 3, won't work on either. Hooked it to an S3 and it still doesn't work. Am gonna return it and get the original Samsung adapter. I followed the hook up instructions faithfully and tried it with the 5 pin and 11 pin adapter configuration, and no luck. Waste of money and time!

rocketfish mhl

Works as far as picture comes up on tv screen. But my Samsung Galaxy S4 loses signal when I plug cable into phone.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Works as advertised

A great little piece of kit that does exactly what it says. I have used it with my HTC One M8 and an older Samsung galaxy tablet and both worked great and the picture and audio were very good. I did have one small wrinkle that I found an answer to in a Samsung forum and that has to do with the order in which you hook the connections up. Connect power first, then HDMI, and last hook up your MHL device (phone or whatever). If done in this order the system works flawlessly.

  • from Toronto, ON

Excellent product!

This works perfectly on my S4. Mirrors my phone and plays full video while charging at the same time. Great buy!

  • from Waterloo, ON

Excellent Buy

This is an excellent product and a very competitive price. Remember that Samsung opted for an 11-pin micro USB instead of the 5-pin so you must use the converter (which comes with this cable) to hook up to S3.

  • from Ottawa, Canada

sent me a better one for same price.

I ordered this and the one i received was slightly different with the same model number. I was happy because the one I received had an adapter that works with my Samsung galaxy note 2. So I can use normal mhl devices and when I want to use a Samsung device, I just put the adapter on the end and it works. I have it hooked up to my 50' flatscreen and a playstation 3 remote hooked up via blue tooth to my phone\tablet with android games and emulators. (Nintendo Sega etc.) Oh I also downloaded an app that shuts my phones screen off when I plug the mhl wire in. One thing that could be improved is the stability of the adapter.. If you move it a little bit when it's plugged in it stops working for a few seconds, so you have to keep it still to work.

when I first connected this to my Galixy Tab 3 10.1 it worked, I could mirror the screen, show movies ect... but when I tried it for the 2nd and 3rd time, no dice. It did not work. The good news is that it works on my wife's HTC One without any issues.

  • from Toronto, ON

Don't even bother buying this for a Samsung phone.

I own a Galaxy S3. It's a cheaper adapter than the official Samsung one, what could possibly go wrong? Well... it didn't work for me. After doing a bit of research, it turns out Samsung uses a completely different pin-layout in the connector than a traditional Micro USB slot. Moral of the story: Do not buy this if you plan on using it for a Samsung smartphone. I would reccomend using the official Samsung MHL Adapter Other devices should work fine.
