Works great with the GalaxyTab 4 10.1 in

Previously purchased an OTG USB connecter from B&H which would only connect a card reader to my Samsung products (a Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, and a Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 in), it wouldn't connect any of my thumb drives no matter the size (512 MB all the way to 128 GB) to any of my Galaxy products.

I talked with B&H support techs and they recommended replacing the faulty one with a different brand OTG connector.

I asked about using the 2013 Galaxy Tab USB Connection Kit (White), and they thought that it might be compatible with my Tab 4, but could not confirm it. Samsung specs said specifically that it was compatible only with the Tab 3 which threw us all for a loop.

B&H was going to refund my purchase of the original OTG connector and instead I said I would purchase the Samsung White Connecter Kit if they would give me free shipping for it instead of the refund and they agreed.

Taking a leap of faith I purchased the Samsung 2013 Galaxy Tab USB Connecter Kit (White) from B&H and it works like a dream with my Tab 4 and both of my Galaxy phones.

I hope the B&H reviewer that checks this review will let their support techs know that it does work with the Tab 4 because they too could find nothing that confirmed it was compatible.

Oh' and the reason for 'White' in the name is not only because it's white, but because they also make a black kit which is 2 piece and is NOT compatible with the Tab 4.

I bought this to use with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 tablet. I planned to use it to connect my camera and other USB devices to view photos on the tablet without using a computer. It does not work at all. At first I thought the connector was bad but I tried it on my son's Galaxy S3 phone and it worked well.

      I wanted an 11-pin USB connector, and this one looked like it was good quality, so I gave it a try even though I'm using a Nexus tablet and not a Galaxy Tab. It works great with the Nexus and allows easy file viewing, access, and transfer. I didn't have to do anything other than plug it in.

        Comments about Samsung 2013 Galaxy Tab USB Connection Kit (White):

        Not much to an OTG connector. A microUSB connector at one end and a USB 2.0/3.0 connector at the other end with a short cable in between. But my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Samsung Galaxy Tab S would not recognize the USB flash drive or my camera that I tried connecting with a third party OTG connector. I don't know if that connector was defective but I took it back and ordered this Samsung OTG connector. It cost a little more but it works perfectly with both of my devices and they are using the latest up to date Android operating systems.

                            Allows the use of USB devices for Data transfer to or from the Galaxy Tab 3 tablet.
                            It would have been better if the mini USB connector was a "right angle" type.

                                          Great description of product.
                                          Works great.
                                          Fast shipping and low pricing.

                                            Using this USB adapter kit is like additonal storage aside from the microSD. I used it mainly for playing DVD movies and videos from my Canon camera (Quicktime movie) downloaded on flash drive. What's not so good is you can not do slideshow on pictures on the flash drive.

                                              No complaints lets me acces USB thumb/flash drives. B&H where the only supplier I could find with this product.Still trying to make it work with a hard disk but I think that is my disk drive not the product. Samsung tab 3 8.0 is the target system.
