Customer Reviews

Best value on AmazonI had several other HDMI cables that I have purchased online including one Monster M1000 HD-8. Having a Playstation 3 and a 10-bit Sony LCD television I wanted to make sure I was getting the best picture possible. While the Monster cable does produce a richer color palet it wasn't in my budget to buy two to interconnect my Playstation 3 to my receiver and then purchase a second for between my television and receiver. This inexpensive cable outperforms every other non-Monster HDMI cable I have purchased online. I was sceptical at first, but this 1.3b cable shows more grain in the picture than a standard cable when connecting between a PS3 and a TV.The bottom line is this cable is for a budget you can't beat this cable. They can't be making money selling these cables. If you can afford around $25 for a used Monster HD-8 cable and are looking for the best then I would recommend that instead.5Inexpensive and last years!I've had this HDMI cable for 9 years now and it still works great!Back then, and even now, HDMI cables were real expensive at the big box stores. Being able to buy the same quality cable online was an awesome feature of online shopping. Now the market is flooded with HDMI cables however it's great to know these last the test of time!If you need this older HDMI cable, for whatever reason, it should last you just as long.58 years, still going strongI have had a batch of these cables for over 8 years now. It's about time I let Amazon consumers know how great these cables really are.8 years ago, I had just gotten out of college, got my first "big boy" job, and was still frugal. I bought a new large TV and a PS3 and needed something to connect them as well as my amplifier. These cables were only a few dollars and seemed to have great reviews. I took a leap of faith, and boy did it work out for me. I ended up buying 6 cables because they were so inexpensive. I figured if any went bad, I'd replace them with another from the batch. Eight years later and I have not had an issue with any of the 6. I currently am using 4 and have given 2 of the others away to friends who did not have them and/or did not know where to get good cheap HDMI cables.If you are in the market for HDMI cables and do not want to waste your money on those quote "high end" cables, these are the ones to get. They work just as well as any $80 cables you can get in electronic stores but they are a 30th of the price.5Sweet savings So you know, I was pretty skeptical ordering such, well, cheap cables online. But for the price, what the hey.I got these in the mail and I looked for the inevitable flaws. I was surprised to find none. They are plainly marked as HDMI cables and fit perfectly into HDMI devices. In my case these include a 1 year old HDMI TV, HDMI amplifier and PS3.I am sure that there are folks who will say these are not shielded or you need expensive cables. My take is you can't go wrong w/ the amount these cost. Go buy the fancy ones and compare on your gear to see if there's a difference. In my case, there was no need to look further.I wound up ordering 3 of them. You could do well selling these in the parking lot of some box stores for the low low price of say $15 each! 5Works most of the timeI got the cable and have used it for a couple of months. I used it to connect my Xbox 360 to my TV. It worked initially, however after about 1 week, occasionally the picture and sound would cut out for about 3-5 seconds. Sometimes it would happen about 1-2 times per hour, sometimes about every 2-3 minutes. I tried reconnecting the cable but I still had the problem. I switched it out with a cable that came stock with a Toshiba LCD TV and the new cable has worked flawlessly. I recently got a BluRay home theater system and used the cable that came with the Toshiba TV and had some problems with it (funny picture color). I changed it out with this cable from Amazon and it has worked without any problems. When I tried it back with the Xbox 360, I had the old problems of it cutting out. When I reconnected the HDMI cable from the Toshiba TV, I also had the old problems with the colors.I am not sure where the problem is (maybe some audiophiles can give input), not that I need any help because my current setup is working well. I am just sharing this with you because if there is any technical reason for such problems, I wouldn't rate the cable bad. In my current setup, the cable works great and is well worth saving the bucks from buying brand name cables.4Great quality for a low price....The absurdly cheap price of these cables made me somewhat hesitant to give them a try. However, at $1.55 each you're not out much if they don't work out.They are being used to connect my Dish Receiver & Blu-ray player to my HDMI 3 in 1 switch and then on to the TV. They work great. No problems with the HDCP handshake on any of my equipment and the picture quality is great. I don't really see any tangible difference between these and more expensive cables on other equipment. I think for short cable throws of 6ft. or less these cables would probably be close to identical in picture quality to a $40 HDMI cable. I may be wrong on that assessment, but I have yet to see anything that demonstrates an obvious difference in picture quality. At least nothing that would motivate you to spend $40 vs. $1.55 for a single HDMI cable.5I am not going to spend a lot for an HDMI cable :)[Anyone remembers the old "I am not going to spend a lot for this muffler" commercial?][NOTE: I bought TWO Premium Gold Series cables and I actually took home one Monster cable at one time so maybe I know what I am talking about :)]Just in case someone may feel guilty for not paying a lot more for, basically the same thing, let's look at our top of the line offer, Monster HDMI 1000HD Ultra-High Speed HDMI Cable (2 meters) and do a quick comparison.The Gold Series item supports the HDMI 1.3 standard. Any HDMI 1.3 cable can carry up to 10.2 Gbit/s. Hmmm... I suppose the Monster is much better, right? Well... it "guarantees a certified cable bandwidth of 10.2" Okay, but the Monster also supports "x.v.Color, and Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD". It turns out that, all of the above, and more, are part of the HDMI 1.3 specs and they are fully supported by every cable that complies to the standard and can be had for about 95% less in the Premium Gold. The expensive brand presentation simply enumerates the HDMI 1.3 specs as if it being HDMI 1.3 compliant was a really big deal. It is not a big deal. Even a cable that costs 95% less is HDMI 1.3 compliant.My suggestion: if you think that the proponents of the expensive brand have a point when they claim that their product is a lot more durable, buy TWO Premium Gold wires and still pay almost 90% less than you would pay for one of the expensive ones.My personal experience: I've never paid 'a lot' for an HDMI cable because it makes no sense to pay more. I took home one of the 'expensive' ones once because the salesman promised to take it back if I wasn't amazed by the difference. It made zero difference and I returned it.________________________________________The following are the HDMI 1.3 specs and any certified HDMI 1.3 cable is going to support them.Maximum signal bandwidth (MHz) 340Maximum TMDS bandwidth (Gbit/s) 10.2Maximum video bandwidth (Gbit/s) 8.16Maximum audio bandwidth (Mbit/s) 36.86Maximum Color Depth (bit/px) 48Maximum resolution over single link at 24-bit/px 2560 1600p75Maximum resolution over single link at 30-bit/px 2560 1600p60Maximum resolution over single link at 36-bit/px 1920x1200p75Maximum resolution over single link at 48-bit/px 1920 1200p60sRGBYCbCr8 channel LPCM/192 kHz/24-bit audio capabilityBlu-ray Disc video and audio at full resolutionConsumer Electronic Control (CEC)DVD-Audio supportSuper Audio CD (DSD) supportDeep ColorxvYCCAuto lip-syncDolby TrueHD bitstream capableDTS-HD Master Audio bitstream capableUpdated list of CEC commands (only on HDMI 1.3a,b,c)5Spend $3-$4 to try it out for yourself (it carries a 1080p signal)The overall feel of this cable is cheap compared to higher-priced cables, but feel and looks don't mean anything compared to performance. As far as performance, it carries a 1080p signal from my PS3 to my tv when I play a movie or Blu-ray... but when I was playing Madden 2010 it only carried a 720p. I'm not sure if it is the game itself, or if the cable isn't able to carry all of the "information" being sent from the PS3 while playing the game (I don't claim to be a tech. genius so don't know if that would even cause the problem). Fortunately my brother has the same model tv, PS3, and Madden 2010. He bought a mid-priced cable and checked his signal so that I could get a better idea on the performance of this cable. His tv also showed a 720p signal while playing Madden 2010, so I think I can safely make the assumption that this cable (as far as video signal) is equivalent with at least a mid-range HDMI cable. The sound carried by the cable was crisp as well. Regardless if you think a cheap cable can perform as well as a higher-priced cable or not, it's a no-brainer to spend $3-$4 to try it out for yourself.5To pay any more than this for HDMI cables is foolish.I'm going back through all of my Amazon purchases beginning in 2001 and writing reviews for the notable products I've purchased over the years. By notable, I mean products that I am very happy with as well the ones that I now regret purchasing.In the case of this cable, I bought it in 2009 and it easily fits into the Outstanding category - I've had it for 4 years and it still functions as well now as it did on the day I received it. For those of you considering high price HDMI cables - don't! HDMI passes a digital signal - it's binary, all zeros and ones - it either works perfectly, or it doesn't work at all. You will see absolutely no/zero difference in quality by paying more for HDMI cables, so find the least expensive ones you can. I would definitely buy it again and highly recommend it to anyone considering purchasing it.5HDMI for lessIt burns me when I go to Radio Shack or similar stores looking for audio/video cables and they want $30 to $50 for an HDMI cable, when I can get the same thing for less than $10 at Amazon. Same thing for almost all audio/video accessories. So when you are building a home theater, look to Amazon first. Simply buy your wall mount (I suggest the Cheetah brand), your banana plugs, your video cables, your surge protector (I recommend the Monster brand - get the best one you can afford.), your speaker wire, and all the rest of the necessary stuff, and you will save a ton of money over what the retail stores charge. And do not be fooled by the hype that a $50 cable will outperform and look better than the less expensive ones. These cables perform spectacularly! Now to be fair, I purchased one inexpensive HDMI cable years ago (not from Amazon) when the Playstation 3 first came out that failed on me. It was very cheaply made, and it fit loosely in the connector and would cause the video to suddenly lose contact. These cables sold by Amazon fit tightly into the connector and have never failed, but if they ever do, I just get a new one and I'm still money way ahead of buying an expensive one.5Better than Mammoth CableGet these cheap cables. They are as good as expensive Monster cables -- better actually. Why? HDMI is a digital-signal only cable. There is no analog signal to get religious about. Bits is bits. A Monster zero is no more zeroish than a four-dollar cable's zero. Ditto for ones. Here's some fun facts. The HDMI 1.3 spec tells us that all HDMI cables have to be certified as meeting the standard in order to use the HDMI name. HDMI 1.3 runs a 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second). For perspective, this is 21 times faster than USB 2.0 at 480 Mbps. Fast.The standard was cleverly designed to be robust, reliable, efficient (low power), high capacity, and LOW COST to manufacture. The HDMI cable contains 4 high-speed low-power differential-signal shielded connections -- in addition to 5 volt power and some low-speed digital signals for devices to talk back and forth to each other. Three of the high-speed connections carry respectively the red, green, and blue uncompressed video bitstreams. The fourth carries a synchronous clock, which cunningly allows the receiving chip to economically recover the bits in the other 3 channels at this extreme speed. Uncompressed audio is also sent (on a time slice basis) over the 3 video channels. Whereas the 1.3 spec supports 10.2 Gbps, your BluRay player rarely exceeds 5 Gbps -- depending on content such as color depth and the number of audio channels. There's plenty of excess capacity in your cheap cable. (Read the FAQ and white papers at HDMI dot ORG for more.)So why is this dinky cable better than an expensive one? The Expensive Brands have wide-diameter cables with unnecessarily long connectors. This must give the appearance of being totally awesome. However, the wires INSIDE are the same size and layout as for any other HDMI cable. They must be in order to match electrical capacitance, impedance and shielding parameters required conform to the 10.2 Gbps spec. But, importantly, this bulky bloated thickness puts weight and tension on the connectors of your expensive LCD TV and BluRay player and other equip. Why would you want to put mechanical stress on these sockets? Bad idea. And their bits are not better bits: just 0s and 1s. I have these cables. They work.5Believe the Hype and Save your Cash! After ordering and using three of these HDMI cables I decided that it should be ILLEGAL to buy/sell more expensive cables. Talk about cost savings you can save roughly 99% Monster HDMI 1000HD Ultra-High Speed HDMI Cable (2 meters) per cable. Is there a quality difference? Maybe (I hope) can I tell a difference - no not at all.Final Verdict- If you really have a desire to waste an obscene amount of money buying the name brands go for it - the rest of us will buy the discount cables and use the money we save to buy additional components!PS - Note that the seller that I used did not combine shipping charges. Not to big of a deal, but it does prove that they are getting a little profit from the shipping charges. 5
