I love my Samsung Series 9. It’s sexy, light-weight, works fast. The backlit keyboard is super handy. Everything about it making me happy, except the fact that I couldn’t connect it to the projectors in the office. Until now…
I was skeptical, but desperate as I needed to project PowerPoint documents all the time from the laptop. The HDMI port is INPUT only (boggle!).
The device is pretty small, smaller than a business card and about the equivalent of a MacBook Air USB dongle. It comes with some minor software, which installed without a hitch. Finally, I plugged it in and looked up at the screen, fingers crossed. Bingo! It allowed high resolution, perfectly quick frame-rate, mirror or extended versions of my desktop. In other words, it was perfect.
The only thing I wish is that the cord was shorter. There is no reason to have a 18″ cord on this thing. However, this is a tiny issue compared to the fact that it worked perfectly.
My Samsung Series 9 is complete. I highly recommend this to anyone who is considering a MacBook Air, but doesn’t want to leave Windows.
