Default MHL 3.0 adapters, what works?

So, I'm about to leave for a holiday for a couple of weeks, and a MHL adapter for my Z2 tablet would be nice. I see Sony has a cable, but that's like 38$ in the local story, and I can find MHL 3.0 adapter for 4-5$ on Ebay. Would any MHL 3.0 adapter work, or does it have to be the Sony cable? I see many of the brands on Ebay mention Samsung, any reason why this would not work?

If you find one that works, can you let us know either way? I am also interested in this!

I bought one from the local accessories store - works out of the box on my Z2 tab. Just ensure that it has USB power

It'll be MHL 1.0 most probably, not 3.0 and probably not even 2.0.

Spelling essentials:
1) There is NO SUCH WORD as "alot" - It's "a lot"
2) The shortened form of You are is You're - NOT Your
3) Loosing & Loose have completely different meanings to Losing & Lose.
