    the usb otg adapter is awesome and makes it possible to connect anything you need usb wise. i have the mhl adapter which also works great. i'm not sure a phone will ever replace a laptop for me. these adapters add functionality and are fun, but not even my transformer prime takes the place of my laptop. somethings are just better or easier on the big screen. i have contemplated getting a small travel keyboard...but.....to replace the laptop....i'm not seeing it for me.

    Your reason for the laptop issues is Internet Explorer? Did you ever consider downloading Chrome? I run Chrome on Windows 8 and its nearly flawless.

    then just do it adapters do the trick if you want your phone screen up on the big screen....the otg usb cable means you can plug in mouse and keyboard....so go for it....

    ok i see what the OTG cable is I assume you would hook one end to the phone and one end to a usb hub ? then hook up all your devices to the hub ? and where is a good place to find the otg cable locally ? best buy shows it as order only.

    An on the go(otg) cable allows you to connect devices such as keyboards , mouse, thumb drives, game controllers...etc to your device.

    don't forget you have to have the 5 to 11 pin adapter to go with the mhl hdmi adapter.....
