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.
