    How many of you have tried it?

    I finally got my cable in yesterday and tried it out. I watched a couple crossfit videos I took with the bionic and then played a few YouTube videos, it looked sweet. It want laggy at all.

    I got my cable really cheap from monoprice and it worked great. They have such awesome cables and prices.

    I don't really think I'll be streaming super large videos or movies with it, but it is very nice to use this so 25 people aren't trying to huddle around your phone to watch something.

    I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I'm excited... I go on a fair number of business trips, and most of the hotel rooms have tvs with HDMI inputs. I'm looking forward to being able to watch netflix or a rented movie from a selection bigger then the normal hotel variety.

    :D

    I really enjoy it. Watched some flash videos from the browser and it never buffered once!

    That's awesome to hear.
    Do you have a link to the exact item you ordered?

    just go to monoprice.com and go to the cables tab. Near the bottom you will see video cables, you want HDMI to micro HDMI, I got a 15 foot cable so I could sit on my couch and control all machines..haha. I think it was around seven bucks. they have all sorts of lengths.

    I can't wait to put some emulators on mine and reinstall Wii IME. Have myself a little portable console.

    Thanks guys. I ordered a 3" cable. I live near Rancho Cucamonga, CA (next city over) so I opted for will-call pick-up. 3.24 is my total, the prices at Verizon and Best Buy can suck it!

    Never heard of Monoprice, but going to check it out and purchase my cable through them. I dont understand why they didnt just include one!

    MonoPrice delivered quickly - got the HDMI cable today.

    Here's a question though: Has anyone connected their Bionic to a computer monitor yet? If so, did you use your HDMI cable and some sort of DVI adapter??

    I'll have to remember monoprice next time

    I wish I was a good enough programmer to figure out how to use a wiimote as a remote.. I'd use the bionic for netflix instead of my ps3.

    I have a Xoom, so I already had the cable. Works very well. Watched some 720p videos I took with the phone and was quite impressed with the quality. Gonna love this thing on my trip next week. I even started liking the camera after looking at some outdoor pictures I took.

    I cannot find my micro-HDMI -> HDMI cable for the life of me, so can anyone confirm that the mirror mode works well with Quickoffice to show Powerpoint slideshows?

    If it does, it might be worth tearing apart my junk closet to find my cable; or simply ordering a new one.
