Could you please post your experience with any Slimport adapters tested with the G Pad?

I know the Cable Matters brand (from Amazon) works, there is a Youtube review posted on it.

Would be interested in seeing what other brands work and which is the best.

Thanks

This one is guaranteed to work.


Here is the Youtube review (would have been nice if he showed a movie)

The adapter listed above from Amazon is the one I got and it works great. The only issue is that it charges the tablet slower, but it does charge while I am using it.

The one from amazon does not ship to Europe and the HDMI out is one of the many reasons I bought this tablet damn.

Any good alternatives that are tested and ship to Europe?

Well, I bought this one from Amazon France, originally for my Nexus 4, and it works flawlessly with my Gpad :

I don't know if it ships to Italy or anywhere else in Europe, but I think it does.

Thank you very much for your answer mate. They do ship it in Greece but yikes 30euros without shipping, that hurts bad.

The one I got from eBay above STILL hasn't arrived after five weeks (they said it should arrive today or tomorrow)... Once it does I'll review it for everyone. Here's hoping!

From amazon.fr search "SlimPort-femelle-Adaptateur-Optimus-Infinity+hdmi+nexus+4"

I chose the first! for Euro 16,95

This I have already caught myself and it works perfectly, the price was good and the quality of the materials too!

Tested the adapter and ..... works perfectly on my Nexus 4 and on the loving G Pad 8.3.
The immediate mirroring ok , do not activate anything, except to verify that the entry of the external monitor on, and set to HDMI. Video and audio are perfect and there is no lag, maximum fluidity and faithful reproduction of what is happening on the screen of the G Pad , I tried a video and I sailed a bit ' in WIFI sitting on the couch.
I do not play , but I am convinced that for some passionate playing on a giant screen could be a "must have"
For remote control , there are several options , including:
- Bluetooth keyboard and mouse ;
- App for Android smartphones as " Tablet remote" , either via bluetooth (the one I 'm using ) and via WIFI ;
- Mousepade mini keyboard with integrated bluetooth as always RII or RII MINI MINI I8 ELEGANCE with Italian layout ;
- Joystick or gamepad bluetooth.
On the net you will find various models , at prices affordable even .

Unfortunately, this side of the adapter port microusb myDP only allows you to power your device while mirroring, and not to accept a USB OTG adapter ( tried but it does not work , at least in this model), but I think it is a very common problem (maybe because that port was enabled only for the voltage and not for data ), and we must be satisfied that performs its function very well.
I remember that during the G Pad mirrored by SLIMPORT not require any power supply (optional) for proper operation , while for devices that use the MHL format (like many Samsung ) was mandatory .
This mode , however, was to be preferred to that of type " miracast " , more expensive , less fluid and problematic.
I think that with an additional HDMI to VGA or HDMI to DVI interface you can also safely projectors in case you need to make presentations in a professional field .

See you soon friends.
