1. This product was to link my Nexus 4 phone to the HDMI lead for my Panasonic TV because we'd already bought three from different sources and of those, only the first one worked, and that was only for a few days. 2. It was excellent to see that a power source for the mobile could be used while the phone was in use (had it worked when we tried using it). 3. No negative comments, assuming that it had worked. 4. Oh yes. We got back to you when the lead ( X 2) would not work. We had assumed that our first three slimport leads from two different companies were possibly inferior products, and therefore felt confident that your product would be excellent. So we contacted you when this was not realised, but had no response. It has been suggested to us by friends that possibly it is a software problem with the Nexus 4, and indeed we found internet comments regarding this problem for the Nexus 4 and the tablet, Nexus 7. Therefore we contacted them and were ignored. Now I have someone else assisting me in trying to get some response from them. If you as a company can assist in this possible software blip, which effectively means that none of us can use your product, then i would be most thankful. Faith Anderson.

This product is used Occasionally when traveling, love the over all design practical size and materials, very good quality. the FPS can be better and if worked out the response time can be the deal breaker for this product. over all i am a believer and truly enjoy this product. if there is any updated version for this product i will be happy to try it.

I wanted to play games and watch videos on my hdtv and tried this adapter. It does exactly what it says it does. I was able to connect my Nexus 7 through hdmi to my hdtv. Everything looks great on the TV. My only issue with the cable, and it is not a big issue, is the plastic cover over the connecter which plugs into the Nexus 7 came loose. The connector worked. I would rate this 4 1/2 stars. Thank you.

Works as advertised and provides great audio and visual quality. This company really came through after initially sending me a unit that wasn't compatible with my Nexus 7. They were honest with me and provided a accurate date when they would send me a replacement.

1.) By connecting my new Nexus 7 2nd Gen to watch Google movies and listen to Google music. 2.) Able to mirror the Nexus 7 2nd Gen's images to the big screen. 3.) Cuts off at times and have to unplug the HDMI device from the tablet... Very annoying.

Original unit was defective and unusable, replacement is better but occasionally glitches during playback. Short green flashes appear on screen just long enough to notice. The unit would be much more comfortable to use is both the USB power and HDMI were at the same end, with the I/O for the tablet at the other. If I had to do it over, I would look for something else.

I used the slimport adapter in my car to display my phone on my headunit. Most of the time it works as intended, but other times it can be flakey and drop picture. There doesn't seem to be an external reason as the original slimport adapter doesn't seem to have this issue.
