I just ordered 6ft of 1.4 for $2.50 shipped off Amazon. How is this a good deal?

I had some $1 HDMI cables that worked well for a 37" 720p TV but not so well for a new 52" 1080p TV. I ordered some $6 6ft BlueRigger High speed HDMI cables the quality was a little better that the $1 cables but the Wirelogic cables from Costco work like a champ and may the 52" 1080p picture nice and natural. For a smaller screen size a lower resolution like 720p you may not notice much of a difference like I did on my 37" 720p.

It's digital. Either it transmits the code or it doesn't. I can't imagine it being an issue with such a short cable.

I also don't get all this hype about monster cable and gold plating and blah blah blah. My new TV supposedly came with some kind of cable clamp but I didn't see it in the box and don't need it.

I just started using a $1.50 12' TOSLINK cable that seems very cheap, but again it transmits the light so it works. At least with optical I can comprehend how the signal will degrade over certain lengths, but I can't possibly imagine how 6 ft of HDMI with ethernet etc is going to fail.

And how would TV size be a factor? It's the same image. Resolution ok, but size.. no.

I Just read this again and it's total BS bro. TOTAL BS! Nice and natural? Give me a break. You got a new TV. The cables have zero to do with this.

You are the type of person who pays more for "Zero Oxygen" and ferrite right?

I am far from a cable snob. I am more about function and value so I would have been happy to have the $1 6ft. HDMI Meritime cables work with my new 52" 1080p TV. If I had not tried the Wirelogic cables the TV would have been going back Bestbuy.

super cheap cables, the $1 range type, work fine for short distances. but since the wire is high gauge (thin) it can cause problems at distances larger than 6 or so feet... depending on several factors, like rf interfaces and initial signal strength from the source.
so yes, cheap cables can work fine... and on the opposite side, very expensive cables provide zero benefit in most cases.


rule of thumb... the longer the distance the thicker, smaller gauge, you need.
iI have a 40' cable romantic monoprice and it has worked flawlessly for 7 years.

The tvo size does not matter at all.

Slugo I had not intention to get your shorts in a bunch over $6. I simply purchased these cables at Costco the week prior to them putting a $8 & $10 coupon on them. I had the purchase prices adjusted and though I would share with people who at least be interested in a price adjustment. I would have been happy to stick with the $1 cables that I had been using for about 2 years now but the $6 more cables have a better picture.

i dont understand how people dont/cant appreciate quality cables (yes i realize this is slickdeals...)

YES you can get $1 cables all day long
BUT the quality of those cables is generally CRAP. why do you think its $1?

there are many examples of things that are cheap crap and 'still work just fine' for alot of people, that others invest more for higher overall quality/fit/finish/feature.

if this deal isnt for you and you are happy with your $1 cables. keep them and move on!

then you have NO idea how electrical signals traveling down a wire work at all. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

its not a difficult concept to understand. google is your friend. understand why variation in wire gauge in any wired application matters, then you will produce more intelligent commentary re: quality HDMI cables. and no its not just about oxygen free and ferrite cores (although hopefully those cheapie $1 cables of your DO have them, as they DO have a purpose).

$10 each for a 12ft cable LOCALLY is a good deal if these cables are as good or better than monoprice cables.

just check monoprice for yourselves!

LOL, TOSLINK doesn't even have an electrical wire. It's a fiber that uses beams of red light.

This has to be a troll. You seem to have no point of reference here.

But hey, if you want to pay 5 times as much for a cable because it makes you feel good, be my guest. Whatever makes you happy.

no shit toslink doesnt have a wire. im talking about the cable posted in this thread. the part where you said:

"At least with optical I can comprehend how the signal will degrade over certain lengths, but I can't possibly imagine how 6 ft of HDMI with ethernet etc is going to fail."

Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

5 times the price? who is trolling?

again, find a 12 foot hdmi w/ ethernet/3d cable on monoprice for less than $10 each shipped. go ahead... ill be waiting.

educate yourself instead of just spouting sophmoric rhetoric. (if you DO read it, note there are multiple pages to the article)

hell, you might learn something, as shocking to you as it may be, since you seem to think you have a good grasp on the topic.

Bro I paid $3 for my cable and this one is $17. That is more than 5 times. And you said I should google right? Ok, here you go:

A picture transmitted using a cheap cable will be identical to the picture transmitted on an expensive cable. The reason for this is that HDMI transfers a digital signal. As such, the signals do not degrade, color won't change, clarity will not be affected. In the digital world of 1s and 0s, the signal either passes or it doesn't pass. For most HTPC owners, the type of the cable simply does not matter and you're better off spending your money elsewhere. For a technical explanation about why premium HDMI cables are a total waste of money, head on to our sources at PC Magazine or check out Popular Mechanics whose experienced editors tested and found absolutely no difference between a $13 cable and a $300 one. Beware of quick Google searches that will turn up websites that'll claim otherwise; these websites are usually affiliated with stores that sell their own expensive HDMI cables and therefore have a vested interest to tell you that their cables will produce "Sharp Pictures", "Deep Colors" or "Smooth Video". [htpcsolutions.com]

In short, you got suckered. 1 0 1 0 1 0 <- Digital code. EIther transmitted or not.

Pwned. Now please, admit defeat and move on.
