4.0 out of 5 stars Something that works. 23 Jan 2013
By Mark
Verified Purchase
Excellent product, simple set up,
1) Mini USB on the Slimport adapter goes into your phone,
2) HDMI lead goes into the Slimport adapter
3)The other end of the HDMI lead plugs into your television.
The thing i like about the product is that there is a mini USB input on the Slimport so you can charge the phone at the same time.
Well built product, and excellent service.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly 30 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
Is way overpriced for what it is, but there are no alternatives at the moment, maybe some cheap Chinese options will be available soon.

Comes delivered in very simple packaging, sort of an anti-static bag that's closed at the top by a piece of cardboard.

Adaptor itself is very well made, not cheap feeling at all. Everything plugs in nice and solid, no loose connections.

Just plug it into your Nexus 4 and a HDMI cable between the adaptor and the TV and it's working in about 5 seconds, phone automatically changes and locks itself to landscape mode, portrait would look odd on a TV I guess.

Overall it does exactly what it says on the tin, but for this extortionate price I would have expected a HDMI cable to be included as well as a wall charger (charger can be plugged into the adaptor so you can still charge while playing on your TV)

4.0 out of 5 stars Brought for Sky Go - doesn't work :( 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Reading the review above about the Nexus 4 and this adapter, the reviewer stated that it worked, and displayed Sky Go on his TV. Something must have changed, because when I try and do that up pops a message "disconnect HDMI cable to watch Sky Go", and the programme will not play. This is exactly what happens when you try the same thing on an iPad, so Sky have made it only viewable on the phone/tablet screen.
Otherwise the adapter works perfectly- iPlayer works, video playback is good - the resolution is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enables Nexus 4 to offer a great deal more 12 April 2013
By NeilA
Verified Purchase
Goes to show that all the tech reviews of the Nexus 4 which state that there is no HDMI out, whilst technically correct, are in fact most misleading as this device enable HDMI out. It works perfectly and now means that I can watch BBC iplayer, youtube, family movies and photos etc. etc. on my TV. It's a terrific piece of kit and the fact that you do not need a power source is also excellent. The ability to charge the phone by plugging a charger into the micro usb on the adapter is also an excellent idea. I really wish that my Nexus 7 had this technology on board. I don't really understand if this technology is 'better' than HDMI out, which the Nexus 4 otherwise lacks, or not. All I know is that the slimport adapter works perfectly and does the job. Well done to the developers and I wish you every success in rolling this technology out to more devices that otherwise lack HDMI out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful accessory 24 July 2013
By jsch63
Verified Purchase
I watch quite a lot of catch-up TV like BBC iPlayer, and I used to connect my laptop with an HDMI cable to the TV. This means that I have to boot the laptop and wait for everything to load, so it's quite a drawn-out process. With this simple cable I connect my Google Nexus 4 - just use the iplayer app for Android, and it's ready immediately. I was worried that the quality of the video might be low, and not look good on a bigger screen - but I can't see any difference in quality between this method and connecting the laptop. So - a very useful and time-saving accessory. And you can charge your phone at the same time by plugging in the charger. Cons: It's probably not that much use for people with Internet-connected TVs because it wouldn't add much to their experience. And given from what it is - a simple cable, the price is rather high. But that's probably to do with the fact that it's specifically manufactured for the Nexus 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a dream 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase
I saw this on a tech blog (can't remember which one) and thought it seemed an interesting idea because I had noted that movies were often cheaper on google play than virgin media on demand. It works perfectly, the pictures delivered appear to be full HD. I have used it to browse the web gallery my wedding photographer sent the wife and me, watch films, and have tested it to see how it handles presenting pdfs because I might start carrying my phone and this cable when going to a client's to present instead of lugging my laptop (and when I know they have an HD screen!).

4.0 out of 5 stars works fine but 23 April 2013
By Janusz
Verified Purchase
Works fine. There are minor jams caused by the Android software than the adapter itself. Important: performance (speed) of the phone is reduced by approximately 30% with an adapter. For example, without an adapter 3DMark shows about 11000 points. With an adapter attached test shows a little more than 8000 points ..
