HDMI Cable Choices?

Postby camaroguy1998 » Sun Jan 02, 2011 3:59 am

2 of my relatives received HDTV's for Christmas. One is an LCD(120HZ) and the other is a Plasma!
The question came up about what HDMI cable to use for connecting a BluRay Player.

Looking for some real life experience/comparisons!

I think locally the best prices you will find are at Sam's Club or Costco - they usually have a 2 pack, at least the last time I looked for them in a real store.

online, check monoprice.com for good quality, low priced ones!
Cigar Blog I review for - http://www.stogiereview.com

Remember, I am opinionated and nothing I say or do reflects on anyone or anything else but me :finga:

I like monoprice.com as well as firefold.com. I have purchased from both sites and have never had issues.
I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.
