I have just had two delivered today for £3.98, bargain for what seems to be a high quality cable.

Questionable RRP but a bargain all the same

Can you expand on this a little? I've never, ever seen this mentioned in ANY of the previous HDMI cable threads.:whistling::whistling:

Ah that well known brand 'Blue Eye'. I'm sure it's a good buy at £1.99 so voted hot, but was it ever sold at £29.99? About as likely as the moon being made of cheese.

not entirely true, a network cable for example works or it doesn't, but there are big differences in quality, and I am not talking about categories! speed and stability are examples I have experienced at work.
a general rule, thicker cables will perform better over time, i agree that so many are rip offs, but a £2 hdmi cable is much more likely to break (down) than a £20 cable, if they are in fact of different quality and not simply re-badged ones.

Massive difference by using a good cable , mine cost over £80 and the difference is huge , not only in picture quality but especially when using HD sound through good system !

so although on your set up , it might not be beneficial , to others im sure it will be

Would you be able to explain what the differences are. less interference/better contrast etc - I would be very interested to know. I have just got a cheap one and want to know what I am missing

A cheep cable in a cheep system would be a good match, you can normally only discern the difference with better equipment. There are always people banging on about digital working or not working which shows a complete lack of any real knowledge of the many different forms of digital signals and their specific operating criteria. Digital signals are very tricky things and good cables can and do make a difference to the transfer of this digital information from one component to another. There is a huge amount of information out there from reputable and independent sources if anyone wants to read up on this before giving their 'advice' on the pro's and con's of a specific cable.

In short, you really do get what you pay for, like with every other product in the entire world!

I know where to buy some magic beans for £100 that will make your HD sound even better!

Most people would never appreciate them, but a true connoisseur of hi-fidelity sound like your good self will surely notice the improvement.

Yep agree to a point. When you loose it and get the signal back though that is when you get the pixelation.

I would of thought pretty much anyt hdmi cable running over a couple of metres is going to be ok.

Agreed, most HDMI cables up to 5m have negligible differences. Unless of course it's a quid. Buy a HDMI cable for a fiver, and it'll have the same performance as those Monster Cable HDMIs. Over a few metres, it's a different story. That's where the premium cables show their worth.

I think a few people in here either have their head in the clouds or work for currys. I have said this before and I will say it again.

There is no difference between a £2 HDMI and a £200 HDMI. I have compared them myself side by side.

Anyone who says different is very naive or like I said works for Currys.

I don’t work for Currys, I don’t even own any HDMI cables myself. I do however work in broadcasting though and understand how digital signals HDMI cables are used for work.

May I ask how you are qualified to comment on this subject? How did you compare the two cables, did you hold them up next to each other and shake them?

that was always my understanding
banned#26
Th only difference is in the connections and not the actual cable itself.

If you get a signal through the cable to the other end then it will work all the same, but if your connections are crap then that could be a cause of break up from time to time. so try and get one with a good set of connections on each end.

If the cable is crap it will either work or it won't work, but as with connections, you can get hit and miss, hence you may get break up now and again so buying one with a good quality connection on each end will certainly help things.

But I say you can get that for a fiver or less. :)
#27
What TV did you compare them on??? Seriously, whether the signal is digital or analogue the quality of the cable makes a significant difference, less lost bits means less error correction which gives better picture and sound, simple, it's all in the shielding.

I'm not sure if you guys are Trolling here or not but surely there aren't really people still out there who believe this given the enormous weight of evidence to the contrary. I'm really sorry you all spend a lot of money on silly expensive cables but you should open your eyes to the facts.

Decent analogue and speaker cables have their place but not HDMI. If it works, it works.

What is Trolling? I already said I don’t own any HDMI cables. Even if your assertion that it works or it doesn’t was true you are ignoring the entire build quality aspect and long term durability. Do you still have an X-Files poster on your wall, not everything in life is a big conspiracy you know.

Buy skyHD, connect it to a HD TV using high end Scart cable to watch normal sky channel not HD.

Than using a HDMI connection watch the same channal and than ask the question, again.

Also as Hdmi cables are smaller and fit better, they are more manageable and dont tend to come off like scart cables does, i know this as i own more than 1 OFC high end Scart cables.

On another note, The qulity of the cable does matter, better cables can transfer more information with less loss, thus they tend to produice better results.
think about 1080p with loss less audio 7.1.

I always use qulity HDMI, DVI even VGA cables.

Wrong price! Just ordered one...to check quality first ...It's £2.00 delivered as they charge you £0.01 for Royal Mail first Class - no wonder the PO is going to the wall if they're charging such exorbitant postage fees! Excellent price at £1.99 (£2) delivered...i'd need to spend double that on fuel alone to get to local store to buy one! Heat added...well spotted!

This post sounds like a monster advert, "Look at this HD viewing via scart, then via HDMI, pay £80 for HDMI or your viewings will be hurt!!!"

People have already said before, there is SOME (although not as much as marketing make you believe) benefit to having decent quality analogue cables, but the people spouting rubbish like the guy above have no idea what they are talking about. Any HDMI cable that qualifies with the correct HDMI specification eg 1.3a etc will be capable of the same information bandwidth as any other, as in the HDMI spec is specifically made so the minimum bandwidth of the interface exceeds the bandwidth of the content being played. If you honestly think your Sky HD looks better with more expensive cables, consider this; the best looking Sky HD channel is being transmitted with way under half the bitrate of a Blu-Ray, so it's the content not the medium.

That's not comparing 2 digital signals is it, of course HDMI is going to be better than SCART that IS NOT the issue being debated here.

Your last paragraph is utter rowlarks, a 1 is a 1 and a 0 is a 0 with a digital signal it either works or it goes tits up there is NO ghosting or jitter or dodgy sound it works or it doesnt end of!

You "understand how the digital signals HDMI cables are used for work"? Yet you suggest cheap with cheap is fine, but if you have better kit you'll see degredation using a cheap HDMI cable? Lordy. I dread to think which bit of broadcasting you work in!

Ah that well known brand 'Blue Eye'.

Haha awesome! Rep

To other people asking questions about HDMI cables, there have been numorous arguments plaguing theses forums in the past. Basically over short distances, all cables cheap and expensive are the same even 1080p up to a certain length (I think up to 2m is perfect, no difference in cables, ie most people).

Then up to 10m I think its fine using cheap cables up to 720p/1080i (ie most people) but higher quality ones are reccomended. In tests online (use google), studies have show that medium priced cables are of equal or worse quality than the cheap ones, sometimes the same OEM product packaged in a nicer box, there is no real middle ground. There is a good cable, or a regular cable, and regular ones work just fine for 99% of people (why would most people need more than 2m? And if they do it only affects them if they are using 1080p)

Why? Here is what I think is the explanation. Due to the amount of data being transferred and the bandwidth of the cable, some of the more expensive cables are better, for 1080p, but over 2M it is such a short distance it makes no difference, and for 720p/1080i transmissions over long distance there is not enough data transfer to make a difference whether you are using an good or cheap quality cable.

Look online for more detailed answers, I may not be 100% factually correct, but it went something like that.

EDIT: I have done a bit of checking online, and this post is mostly right, might be a bit vague at times. You are probably safe up to 5m with any cable too, even with 1080p - just further down the line, say 3 years or so, it won't really cut it due to better HD content you'll be viewing (more data).
