Default Do not order this MHL cable:

I ordered this MHL cable that specifically says it's made just for S3 12 days ago but hasn't turned up, so I emailed the seller asking why it hasn't turned up yet and got this reply:

we have just realised these cables are not compatible with the s3,
would you like to wait till the correct cable comes in or shall we refund
your money\?
kind regards
sunny savers.

And they didn't even try to explain why I didnt receive it even though I got email delivery confirmation 12 days ago.

Thanks for warning users.

Personally, I don't think it is that vendors fault. Samsung said that the SGS3 had MHL. There have been more then 100 devices with MHL so far and they have all been compatible with each other.

There was no way for the vendor of that MHL cable (or anyone else) to know that the SGS3's MHL port is not really an MHL port.

Yeah but it looks like the seller knew that before I even put the order in yet still took payment and confirmed delivery, because after 11 days I asked them to confirm it had been sent and they just said they found out it isn't compatible and it wasn't until I emailed them that they informed me of this, and you know maybe it just got lost in the post but I really think it's more than that.
