Verey useful, but the microUSB is a bit loose – Micro USB Male to HDMI Female MHL Adapter Cable for Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Awesome tool for hooking up a Samsung Galaxy III to a TV set -Allows for an external power supply i.e. the phone isn't drained
Cons:
-the microUSB connection's a bit loose (doesn't seem to stay all the way in) -only works for Samsung Galaxy III phones (AFAIK), though this is completely Samsung's fault -necessitates the purchase of an HDMI cable
Other:
I tested the gadget using some 720p videos to see how well they play on the TV. Unfortunately the picture movement wasn't nearly as smooth as I expected. I'm not sure on the cause of this though, maybe it's the phone's hardware's fault and I don't know how does it perform with 1080i/p videos
Bottomline:
You should definitely buy this if you want/need to hook up your phone to a TV set/projector with a HDMI port as it can make for a jaw-dropping presentation/preview tool with a Samsung Galaxy III. You won't make much use of it with any other phone though (since it has a different MHL implementation than the rest of the smartphones).
