Recently purchased a long HDMI cable.. and saw some posts about how the length of it effects the speed.. so it may be 18 Gbps but at 60 feet.. it may not be entirely true.

Just something to look into. I made sure to get EXACTLY the length I needed... to try and avoid any excessive wire that may reduce the effectiveness.

I own this model in 60ft: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=13758
And while they are upfront that its only chroma 4:2:0 @ 24hz, reviews state the 50ft is hit-or-miss and that is advertised as 60hz 4:4:4.

I'd be sceptical this will deliver as promised for every application. Likely it would fall on just how much out of spec the output is from the source.

Great deal if it works for you, but be prepared for a return.

Exactly this. I vaguely remember 35' being near the upper limit for 4:4:4 when I had to order the cable for my projector. Think anything over that length a CAT6 (Base-t or whatever?), or fiber was suggested.

Note that these Cabernet cables are active one-way cables. They have some fancy mojo chip (RedMere/Spectra7) in the HDMI plugs that increases the effective range. I was skeptical, but I can an error-free get 4K HDR @ 60hz over a 35ft cable, and 1080p HDR @ 120hz also works great. Every other non-active cable I tried failed either of those 2 benchmarks horribly.

NOTE: Actually, upon remembering, the Cabernet cables didn't do so well. However, the Luxe ones outdid them. And they're actually cheaper for a 60ft on Monoprice -- https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=13757. It looks like they both use the latest HT8181 chipset from Spectra7 now, though, whereas before only the Luxe one I got did. So they might both fare the same now. Yes, this shit is needlessly confusing. :|

Anything over 30 feet or so get a fiber cable for 4K.

These are active cables, they should have no problem being effective at 60 feet. Monoprice is a reputable manufacturer, I don't think they'd sell a cable claiming it meets a spec that it doesn't actually meet due to the length.

active hdmi cables are useless at 4k over 5m
so you'll be lucky to get 2k working at 20m
and needless to say, monoprice is crap.
hdmi are not ethernet - it's not designed for distance.
I own many different monoprice cables, they aren't crap at all. Very high quality.

EDIT: also based on reviews these clearly work...

i bought a few, and stopped using them because they were unreliable.
the worst is when i had to redo an in wall wiring chute behind a tv
because all these crappy 3m-5m monoprice cables kept glitching.

I had to do a 30ft cable for my 4K hdr projector and in the end had to drop $100 for the Rupio HDMI/fiber cable on Amazon. A bunch of AV nerds have done extensive testing and there are only about 3 consumer cables that consistently support 4K HDR signals over length. Monoprice makes one, but it's just as expensive as the Rupio.

Lattiboy is correct, except it's the "RuiPro" on Amazon if anyone is looking to buy one. I've been using one for about a year now with zero issues.
