This is my first deal post so be gentle. Peace

On sale for $3.99 + Tax. Regular price = $9.99. A tad cheaper that the AmazonBasic cable of same length for $6.99. Ship to your favorite store for pickup is free. Otherwise, it was a ridiculous $5.49 for me. Just bought 2.

This item showed up under "other items" when I clicked on my deal of the day email ad so might be a one day thing.

This is a single 6 foot (6') high-speed HDMI cable in white. Product reviews on BB site average 4.7 out of 5 stars with over 15K submitted. When I searched past deals, apparently the 4' cables in black for $3 and another post in January for $3.99 was a good deal. Hopefully, that's still the case. Good luck!

There is a lot of misinfo about HDMI cables.

First off, almost ANY HDMI cable will carry a 4K HDR signal over a short distance.

You DO NOT NEED a premium certified for cable for short runs.

For runs over 15 feet you might.

How do you tell?

Simple.

You either will get an image with lots of snow or more likely, no image at all.

This is a good post, as there are people who will insist on buying "premium certified cables" for short runs and this deal will save those people money.

I currently have an XBOX One X, PSPro and Sony BDP-X800 4K blu ray player running through an HDFury box outputting 4K to my Epson 5040UBE Projector and am getting 4K HDR with a bunch of cables I bought from Monoprice five years ago.

Good first post OP.

My Apple 4K TV would have the picture going in and out constantly with a few cables I own (all of which are older but very high quality). I purchased an inexpensive 4K HDMI cable and it fixed everything. This is for a short run, somewhere 4-6 foot range. I haven't bothered to keep up with this stuff since I only recently picked up a 4K tv after one of my plasmas was destroyed by my two year old.

I was always under the impression that all HDMI cables were created equal, as in they all transfer the same quality/resolution?

Correct me if I'm wrong as I'm not entirely sure if this is true.

All HDMI cables can display 4K, only cables rated for high bandwidth can display faster 4K frames rate at 60 HZ. In addition, all devices connected between the said cable have to support all technologies and features.

Not true. I've had 3 different brands of HDMI cables in 3 and 6ft lengths and when I converted over to 4K, all three brands did not work properly. I converted to 10ft (in wall) monoprice certified high speed 18gbps cables and they work flawlessly. I then ran a shorter amazon basics "high speed" 18gbps cable in only a 3ft run and it was in and out. So in my instance, I needed premium certified high speed cables. Monoprice high speed cables work great.

If that joke had a soundtrack it would be more "Gasolina" and less "Despacito". Keep up, man.

The Panasonic plasmas do skin texture and motion far better than I've seen on any 4K non-OLED TV. I'm only using an inexpensive TCL to hold me over until I get an OLED, though. A good friend of mine has an 8000 series Samsung and while it's a definite step up from what I have, I prefer the plasmas in the ways I mentioned. Also, for whatever reason, plasma TVs make standard definition more bearable when you're forced to watch it.

I have a Displayport and HDMI in my monitor. Will I be better off using Displayport to get 4k 60Hz?

4K High speed cables are tested under the right signal conditions in the manufacturing process. Yes, other slow rated cables will also support, but there is no guarantee.

At 4K high speed data rate every small defect start to matter. If your current 1080P cable is manufactured with high quality and precision then it will support 4k, If not defects that does not matter under 1080P, will start to matter more at 4K high speed.
