    Works with Verizon Galaxy S3 - mostly

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

    Pros:
    This is the second MHL adapter I've tried with my Verizon Galaxy S3 and it does technically work.
    Cons:
    While video output does work over this device, it looks highly pixelated and degraded. Also, the output modes don't seem to be...

    Super useful with OpenWRT.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This thing is highly "upgradable," both with better firmware, via OpenWRT, and through hardware upgrades for the adventurous (RAM and flash can both be upgraded if you are good at soldering). With serial port access, too, this can be a great proj...
    Cons:
    None. Well, maybe only that it comes with a Chinese-language firmware, but there are plenty of guides for going through an upg...

    Truly plug-n-play

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works on every operating system I've tried (Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, OSX), including Android. Good speeds. Right now I'm using it to add ethernet functionality to an RK3066 Android HTPC stick. Working well for Netflix and XBMC streaming.
    Cons:
    It wasn't free? :) None.

    Continually improving option for HTPC

    posted by echughesiv on 02/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Tiny, powerful. It is more the 1GB RAM than the dual core processor that keeps this running well. It is certainly more responsive than my original Galaxy S was, and not too much less than my Galaxy S3. Even more, the community around these chips is build...
    Cons:
    There are some "fixes" available to trick the Play Store into thinking that this is a different device, possibly allo...
