These are brilliant, better than those Currys and PCWorld over-priced 'gold plated' rubbish they charge an arm and a leg for. As digital signal they are the same as the over priced lot.
#2

They are not better :lol:

A digital signal will either carry or not carry. No amount of "gold plating" will change the picture or sound quality.
#5
but it can help with connectivity as it won't tarnish the same....;-)

Surely, if it's not oxygen free copper with kryptonite connectors all the bits will get lost. I recommend spending at least 1 billion pounds on one.:whistling:

Do you believe anything from the gadged show? LOL It's all rigged by advertisers.

:santa:Good deal take some heat and rep and have a Merry Christmas:santa:

I wouldn't pay those extortionate prices for an HDMI cable myself ... but just to say that I bought a cheap one on ebay for about £3 earlier in the year, and it worked well for a couple of months, then started "freezing up" after 3 or 4 minutes play on my DVD's. I wondered if my DVD player was at fault, so changed it to my SKY HD box ... same thing ... freezing up. So I binned it and bought a Belkin Pure 1.5m HDMI lead from Amazon, for about £11. Currys were/are selling the 1m version for £40!!!! :x ...Works a treat!

Just be aware that not all leads are equal. :thumbsup:

Yes they manage to get multi references to Apple and their products every week.

Still on this one they are 100% correct no difference between a £70 HDMI cable and a £1 one.

Super hot deal op
#15
The only time quality matters is when you are talking long distances - i.e 10 metres. A cheap 10 metre HDMI cable could have signal problems. For anything lower there is no point paying the bare minimum.

Great deal.
#16
The only possible differences are the quality of the connectors which might have a tendency to not withstand as meny insertions before failing or in the how robust the actual conductors in the cable are but other than that they work or they don't £1 is a steal
#17
They had a few in the manchester arndale branch bought one aswell as an usb extension cable
voted hot

You've just managed to contradict yourself there, surely if it was all rigged by advertisers they'd be saying that yeah you should buy the branded £100 hdmi cables as they are much better, not telling you that cheap ones are just as good. :?

Bit annoyed as a need a couple of cables and I'm literally in the door from being at the shops where there is a poundland.. doh.
#20
worth getting just for spares, you can never have enough cables ;)

thank you, the voice of reason.

HDMI is digital. S/PDIF is digital. USB is digital. Firewire is digital. DVI is usually digital unless it carries the VGA analogue too.

As long as any of those cables are simply made properly (reasonable quality cables and solid connectors), so that they make a good electrical contact and have the right impedance to carry the high speed signal, that's all that matters.

Sometimes in fact the over-engineered expensive cables can be worse because they are so heavy they drag on the connector and make it hard to get it to stay in!

Anyway, sorry to rant.

I bought one off eBay too when I got my PS3 Slim, I had crackly sound every now and again, traced down to the cable. I bought a Plexus one for £5 from somewhere and that's been great no issues.
#23
1m TOSLINK optical cables too - and they're only £1 - which isn't surprising :thumbsup:

I'm not sure what to think about quality/price for - I can't see how a digital signal can be affected thats the point of it isn't it?

Doesn't make any difference to me anyway - I can hear ****** all over the racket 3 kids make so might as well stick with VHS played through a stereo ALBA set all connected with wet string and bits of bell wire. :-(
#24
Seen them in Eastbourne so the stock seems well scattered.

VHS played through a stereo ALBA set all connected with wet string and bits of bell wire seems OK when I use it. If it was good enough for my parents then it's good enough for me.
#25
I always go in my local poundland looking for these but I never find them!
#26
Try it if it dont work, then its only a pot lid (£). Personally im in the purchase resonably prices group when it comes it HDMI, Scart, Optical, audit leads etc
#27
Made the £1 swoop for one of these today from the Glasgow Trongate store. Absolute BarG!
#28
Got one of these on monday, and they were sold out yesterday. Not tested it yet :thumbsup:

Damn! .....It has'nt kicked off like thought it would...Still it's early:thumbsup:
#30
I have 3 of these, they are exactly the same as the gold plated one that came with my media center.
#31
This a good deal. I remember when HDMI first came out and the cables were SO expensive. I don't really need one but for that price, voted hot.
#32
i have 4 devices all using cheap cables and in 12 months not 1 has given me any issues so id be happy to buy these incase i need some in the future. id also like the optical ones but as mentioned above, i too have a store that never seems to sell these
#33
none here, some geezer looking for them in the shop too...lol :)
#34
the reason for the gold and different plating is to do with how long they can last and different envionrmnets they are in... generally speaking for joe public, this wont be an issue...
1m isnt very long, but if your tv is on a stand with dvd etc underneath, bargain.

That was most lilely me if you were in Newcastle. We never get anything good in our poundland. After refusing to buy the cheqpest one in Maplins (£24.99) or the cheapest in Currrys (£29.99) i settled for the £5 gold plated on in Argos which seams to do a great job.
#36
To come back to my initial thoughts, pound for pound, I believe that £1 HDMI is better. If it does not work, you can always buy another at only £1. What happens if your £100 lead goes bad: lost £100. Aside, I remember a few years ago when I bought a multi-region upscaling DVD player, the rep sold me a HDMI lead at £50. Thing is the I was naive. The DVD player, a samsung, only cost £68 pounds. I was gullable enough to believe the crap about 'gold plated' connectors and quality of the material etc. I now think that the DVD player was competitively priced but they made a killing over the lead.
#37
Argh my local poundland is crap never has any of these deals
#38
Does this work on the xbox 360?
#39
The only way there will be any diff at all is if the cable is faulty
£1 or £1000 as long as the cable isnt broken they will be identical

i got my parents a blu-ray player for christmas today
and had some idiot in currys try and sell me a £50 cable
saying the picture quality is so much better

if 20% of customers are mugs they are quids in

I asked this question a couple of weeks ago on a more specialist forum

http://www.thedvdforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=587338

for anybody that wants to read the topic. They explain why there is no difference between HDMI cables that cost £1 and £100.
