mhl adapter seems like too much cabling

better to just get a cord that goes directly from the tablet to the hdmi slot

I got this one today:

Works ok. Has standard sized micro usb connector, but fits View just fine.

MHL is not compatible with HDMI. Unless you have one of the 3 TVs on the market with built-in MHL, you need the box. blame Apple.

There is no such thing AFAIK.
All microUSB ports require MHL adapter for HDMI.
I'd be happy to learn that I am wrong on this issue.

I just got my MHL adapter from monoprice.com in the mail today and I have to say this setup is pretty nice. They have the adapter for $10 and you can also get the external battery that I have pictured here for another $13. It goes nicely with the adapter since it does need to be powered and of course is a nice extra micro usb charger to have when away from home.

The external battery is nice. I did plug it into my View to make sure it would work and it does, but I have yet to actually try to transfer all of the battery life over to the View. Given it is 2800 mAh it should charge the View to about 70% power. The main reason I got it was just so when you hook up the MHL adapter I wouldn't have to have another wire running out of it for a charger and I can also use it with my battery sucking 4g Droid Charge. I will say I watched 3movies yesterday before it died so it will power the MHL for around 5-6 hours.

I've got this one when it was selling for $13.75. Now he raised the price to$19.

It works, but WARNING:
it is listed as compatible for View. However, View power adapter doesn't fit. I had to buy a car adapter for View (well, I wanted it anyway), then use AC/DC converter and standard microUSB to USB cord.
