HDMI Cables

Postby BrightSide » Sun Dec 15, 2013 1:26 pm

I found a few really good deals on Rosewill HDMI Cables, and I want to know thoughts before I grab a bunch of them. They seem pretty thick, but not AS thick as some of the much pricier ones. So, Do you get what you pay for in the case of HDMI cables?

Most cable companies give them to you for free. I know Charter Communications give you 6-foot long cables for free if you have a cable TV package with them.

I was using a THICK monster cable, swapped it out for a cheap thinner monoprice hdmi cable, and saw no difference on anything. Even watching Avatar 3D at 60". Recently swapped those cheap hdmi cables for the monoprice hdmi with redmere (wanted the thin cables) and still no difference.

Unless you're going a long distance (15+ feet) or 4K resolution, I highly doubt you'll notice any difference as long as the ones you get are 1.3a, I think that's the right certification for the high speed 3D and 4K hdmi cables.
