Full 4K support slim cable, keeps things tidy in your AV closet/cabinet. I have a bunch of these and all features and specs supported and work fine. Big fan of these.

If you like the monoprice slim hdmi cables you'll like these as much or better, these may be a bit sturdier and slightly thicker IIRC -
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

The "Helpful" post that talks about "HDMI 2.2" cables is misinformed.

There are NO HDMI 2.0, let alone 2.2 cables.

https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer...0_faq.aspx
https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/..._20_cable/
https://www.cnet.com/news/hdmi-2-...d-to-know/
https://www.cnet.com/news/why-all...-the-same/

There are high speed cables and standard cables (w/ and w/o ethernet). High speed cables are found pretty much everywhere nowadays. HDMI 2.1 *will* require new cables, but that's not what we're talking about right now.

If you have a reliable (keyword) high speed cable, it will be fully compliant with 4K, HDR, HDCP 2.2 etc. (HDCP is contingent on the devices themselves being compliant, not the HDMI cable). I've had cheap $1 cables that worked perfectly, while another would be unstable. Luck of the draw I suppose when dealing with cheap cables not being up to claimed specs, but let's not throw around misinformation.

Please stop perpetuating this "NEED HDMI 2.0 cable" nonsense.

The point is, test out your existing cables and see if you're getting the appropriate 4K and HDR being handled BEFORE running out and buying one. Make sure every device in your chain is HDCP 2.2 compliant. Incompatibility/instability should crop up instantly. If they aren't up to spec, then try it with another one you have lying around. And if those don't work, go ahead and grab a new shiny advertised "4K HDR HDMI 2.0" cable.

...or just stop wasting time with these free or super cheap cables, spend an extra couple bucks and get a premium certified cable from someplace like monoprice.

You need hdmi 2.2 to do HDR. HDMI 2.0 will do 4K but not hdr, and basic hdmi 1.4 cables will do up to 1080p.

Furthermore, hdmi 2.2 also supports HDCP 2.0 (a type of digital protection, kinda like drm). This last part is important because some devices that use 2.0 HDCP won't be backwards compatible with older cables that don't have the technology.

For example, the PS4 pro uses HDCP 2.0 if you turn on HDR. So if you try to use anything other than a 2.2 hdmi cable, you will not get a signal.

Furthermore, if you have any type of receiver or hdmi splitter, it needs to be HDCP compliant or else no signal as well.

Sorry for the rant but I had such a set up before and it really pissed me off that HDCP 2.0 was not backwards compatible. Don't want anybody else to have the same problem later.

LOL at the comment with +18 "Helpful" that has mixed up information all over the place; gets the whole HDMI 2.0 cable bit wrong (and mixes up "HDMI 2.2" with HDCP 2.2). "HDMI 2.0" cables don't exist per se. You just need a reliable high speed one (which most are nowadays). Keyword is reliable, where a lot of budget or cheap cables may or may not fall short.

No. Just a decent one. It tends to be a crap shoot for most of the low-priced ones.

I find the Monoprice ones to be pretty reliable.

I currently use a regular HDMI cable to connect my ps4 to my Oled B7A tv. Will this cable give me a clearer picture than my regular cable?

It will not make a difference for regular ps4. For PS4 pro, you will get HDR which makes things brighter and more clear.

The cable will affect the image for HDR video sources.

Any HDMI cable that says it is "High Speed" or "High Speed with Ethernet" will input/output 4K. Whether you get HDR is up to the tv manufacturer. Most of the "cheaper" 4K tv's (minus some of the TCL Roku TV's) usually do not support HDR.

Thanks for posting this. Grabbed 3 with the $10 rewards code that was supposed to expire yesterday.

Was having problems with HDR and my Nvidia Shield. Hopefully this can clean that up! Was using some HDMI cables from years ago.
