Monoprice has this 6ft HDMI Cable for $1.64 plus shipping. This deal is only for the black color choice, and only for the 6ft cable. Decent specs, and probably a very capable cable for 90% of equipment in use today.

agreed. too many 0 and 1s being pushed through the cable. It'll heat the cable up and might catch fire. You don't want a HDMI fire. It's invisible yet super colorful.

Yes! I'd recommend heading down to Best Buy and picking up a Monster branded HDMI cable for ~$100. This is the only way to ensure your cable won't catch fire.

From what i understand, there are either hdmi cables with or without high speed capabilities, and with or without ethernet. Any other labeling such as "4k, ultra premium, super duper max solid gold diamond embedded platinum extraterrestrial technology" is all fluff. Only need to check if the cable is high speed or not. If your high speed cable doesn't work it's either defective or not truly high speed

You won't want to do HDR playback with this
Why not? I've used these and cheaper cables with HDR, HDR+, Dolby Vision, and with eARC. No problems whatsoever compared to expensive cables.

I hear ya. I was buying a bunch of other stuff there, since Amazon was showing shipping times of "maybe we can have Santa drop it off when he brings your kid's presents." So these were great add on items, along with some of those hospital grade power cords.

what ? no it won't catch fire. lololol

Alot of these old cables are just as fast as newer ones, but they weren't rated for higher speeds, because those higher speeds weren't part of the validation when they were produced.

In most cases, even really cheap cables can support hdmi 2.1 spec @ 6 feet. at 15 feet+, then there might be issues because the termination has to be super clean..

Good for 1080p games or 4K video playback up to 24fps but I'd rather get 4K60hz ones for a few bucks more

Very odd - the grey and red ones are rated to 18Gbps so they can do 4k60hz at 4:4:4.
