0 reviews on the item.
Sold by "Tv Elf" which has 7 total seller feedback.

given, fairly cheap. but not a known quality.
also not sure super thin cabling is such a perk for most applications- more likely to get damaged.

I thought it was all sales talk, but lower quality and older HDMI cables surprisingly cannot handle some combination of 4K, HDR, high FPS (60+fps). I had a TV that had the image show up pink and garbled, and another that just blacked out the signal. I'm not sure if the HDCP (copyright protection) encryption is part of it somehow.

I used to get thick gauge HDMI cables until I had connectors damaged because the cables were too stiff with no flex. I then went the opposite way with ultra-thin cables using Redmere technology (computer chip on both ends), but those max out at 25 or 35ft. I've also had no issues with ultra-thin cables like this up to 10ft without Redmere. But I agree that ultra-thin cables are going to be more prone to damage from kinks and bends, so it's not something I'd use for in-wall runs.

It really depends on the cable. If they were built to barely to meet a spec then they wont be very future proof. You could plug it up to see. Some devices can detect if it can be used. Worst case is you get a bunch of white dots or just no picture at all.

EDIT: I have been to goodwill, and seen hdmi cables for $2.99. You also need to spend $5 to be able to use a credit card. $5 plus tax delivered to my door for 2 cables = no brainer

Quality dubious. You can get a AmazonBasics three pack which has tons of review for $10 shipped. Any issues, just ship it back to Amazon.

The thinness of this cable is worrisome. I'd be very wary about the quality and durability of these cables. I'm not quite sure what the advantage is with having such a thin cable. If space is tight, an angled head would be a better choice, in my opinion.

Kind of... I have a 6yr old 15ft HDMI 2.0 cable that will do 4k on my PC desktop, browser, and VLC player set @60hz.

However, when I open the edge browser to stream 4k netflix, it kicks my TV to "detecting" and it never comes back. Presumably there isn't enough bandwidth to run it with HDR or something.

​exactly. The stress that the heavy gauge cables puts on the connectors is where most problems occur.
