Why is this cold, I need a couple of these so pointers to alternatives with Belkin quality (not some ebay rubbish) would be cool?
#2
In before the big debate over "quality".

Frakison - a £1 will do just as good a job as a £50 HDMI lead.

well i presume its because its £7 for a less than 1 meter cable, regardless of wether its belkin or not.

for instance, i paid £6.50 for a 4 meter cable from asda the other day.

quality really doesnt come into it with hdmi cables, the ones from the pound shop are perfectly fine.

dont get me wrong, its not a bad price compared to say the tosh that currys / comet / dixons / pcworld will tell you when they try and sell you an £80 hdmi cable, but if you nip to pound land you can get 6 cables for this price.

i think thats why its been voted cold, i`m not gonna go into all the ` the more expensive the hdmi the better` malarky, if you wish to buy into that, then thats your perogative.

incidently, the only reason i paid £6.50 for that cable from asda was because i couldnt find the pount shop lol............

oh and if you think that because its got `belkin ` on the side it means quality then LOL, its a cable at the end of the day, its gonna be plugged in and out of tv, say max of 20 to 30 times in its life, if it breaks in that time i`ll go to currys myself and buy you there most expensive!!

I bought three and amazing build quality.

Thanks all :thumbsup: I'd never go for the Comet £80 rip off stuff but kinda due to that I was unsure if the £1 stuff is OK.... clearly it is! :)
#7
basically if your only use a short HDMI, a couple of metres or less aslong as its a solid thing it will do exactly the same job, on the longer ones build quality is more important

Lad dont let it get to you. Tbf I bought a belkin hdmi in tesco for a fiver some months back, havnt seen any since though... but imo, I still think yours is a good deal, I'll vote it hot. : )

The whole lets spends lots on a cable thing is a little silly, its digital not analogue, so its numbers, and they don't dissipate or drift off over distances, analogue which is waves is more likely to thus the preventions which were employed by cable makes to make cables work better over distances, but it really doesn't matter with digital things (unless your using a 20m+ cable) I shall now direct you to a Bitterwallet post and the link which they provided to make it all so much clearer :) (and no I'm not trying to cause an arguement about the price vs thing but if you get the same quality with a £1-2 cable as a cable which is meant to cost £25 then I don't get how its a deal, and this is meant to be a deal site :) )

I dont fork out for expensive hdmi cables. but are they all rated to carry x amount of bandwidth? some monster cables I think can carry more bandwidth than standard hdmi cables? I don't really know what I'm talking about but basically, it's not exactly the same as data transfer because data transfer is not time sensitive...whereas audio and video signals (however transmitted) are... so the bandwidth would have an effect I guess no?

just a bit of clever marketing to be honest.

HDMI is HDMI , as long as the revision is correct for your devices, theres nothing really much to take into account. Long cables, or cables that will be plugged / unplugged repeatedly , yes spend more on, but for 99% of the folks out there, just get a £1 one.
