Default Do yourself a favor

If you plan on getting an mhl adapter.....BUY THE OFFICIAL SAMSUNG ONE. I've been through two 3rd party version, all for the s3 and the screen would go in and out constantly. Both acting differently but doing the same thing. After getting the real one, it works flawlessly. Just a heads up.

You just need one of these if you don't want to buy the official S3 MHL adapter.

The tip option is not what I'm talking about. I'm talking specifically about s3 11 pin 3rd party versions of the mhl adapter. I own the 5 pin to 11 pin adapter as well which works fine with the older Samsung mhl adapters.
