  1. If I want a B&W Multifunction printer (3 in 1, print,scan,copy) machine to this setup, what printer should I choose ?
    Is it possible to use print, scan and copy with this setup ?
    Are there apps that can do this with the multifunction printer ?

  2. will the mouse and keyboard and ethernet ports will work while you are only with screen mirroring?
    i am thinking using the sentio app which is better than dex UI

  3. just ordered for $100 from amazon! wondering if it will work with hulu app and a live video streaming local news website (ktla in los angeles) using chrome or the optimized samsung browser? fingers crossed 🙂 just hoping i wont have to return it! another question, will it provide enough power for an external hard drive and not use a usb stick? i have a 4gb western digital passport drive i wud luv to connect.

  4. Hi Brett,
    How did you make the S8 work as a touchscreen in Dex mode? I can't make it work and I didn't see any other review mentioning this feature…

  5. I tried using the Dex with a 24 inch touchscreen monitor from Acer and it works. Just use the USB connector from the dex and plug it in the screen and you've a huge touchscreen to use 🙂

  6. Just received DeX ( free with new Note 8). Trying to connect to MSPro via HDMI to Mini display adaptor but phone or MSPro3 not sensing a connection. what have I forgotten to do ?
