BuyDig has open box 6-foot Marseille mCable Upscaling HDMI Cables w/ 4K Ultra HD Video Processor on sale for $7.99. Shipping is free.

At least this time they are selling them as open box closeout. Last time they forgot mention the open box part.

I believe the main reason that Marseille stopped this line was due to that they advertised this model including on the box for video and gaming. But this one doesn't work so well for gaming. But it is great on video so long as you do not get one that looks saturated. You can even just get one and use it with a multi-port 4k HDMI switch.

Now they offer a cinema and a gaming mCable. It turns out they couldn't get one cable to do both satisfactory. So, do not get this model and expect it to work well on all gaming. But with that said people did report on the $15 deal thread that in some instances it did help with gaming. Just depends on the signal you are sending through it.

They work great on streaming devices even if your tv is 4k capable. It even worked on my Nvidia Shield to 2017 4k TV. If you use one on the Fire stick or 3rd gen Fire tv 4k you will also need a HDMI coupler. Like below.

If the TV is higher resolution than the source, aren't you suppose to let the TV do the upscaling? Or is this for TVs that can't do that?

I don't have an older tv left around but it worked on my android based streaming devices to 4k tv's. I did use one on an old hd monitor and it worked using my Galaxy s9. True 4k to 4k, it shouldn't do much and it should just pass through.

Linus has a video for this. It turns out it's not a gimmick. https://youtu.be/MjJzibFTaqA

Upscaling hdmi cable ... really lol
It's useful for older 3d based console games (think PS1, PS2). I hear people are impressed by how well it works for PS3 and Switch games as well. Apparently using this with a 720p game gives great results.

The cables apply anti-aliasing that doesn't blur the image.

Getting this specific cable is a gamble, but the regular cables are really expensive too.

I tried this out on my Wii u only because of the review from Linus tech was so positive that it works. Mostly only tried it on breath of the wild so far and I could see a difference but it was only barely better. Other games I booted into menus just to see also could see a slight difference. I think the newer version of it is probably better but not for anywhere near the price they want.

Can this be used on the ARC input with PS3 through a LG Soundbar hookup? Should it be on the PS3 side or TV side? The sound bar is a SK8Y, with only a 1080p pass through, going to a Sony 4k TV.

Works great to bump the NES\SNES Classics to 1080p, even better than my recent model LG 4k TV can do on it's own. The improvement is slight but noticable.
