Very intelligent of you.

Prove that they aren't the same? Because they ARE.

Don't tell me, you work for Currys and claim they're 'better when more expensive'

They are not all the same, some are more expensive than others :-D

However, you CAN get cheaper cables which offer the same performance as the more expensive ones.

So how come my TV wouldn't work with a £10 cable but it would with a £50 one? Of course they're different!!
#11
Although as everyone says because HDMI is digital you get the same signal no matter which cable you use, That doesnt mean there isnt a difference in construction quality between different cables, if someone wants to pay a little more for a better quality cable there isnt anything wrong with that, A damaged HDMI socket could be a nightmare when you only have two,
#12
Oh how I love these posts, better entertainment than an X-Factor final, watched through a £3 HDMI cable!

Just goes to prove how overpriced these type of cables can be.

OOoh no they ARE the same... i just didnt want the arguing about it to start!!!
Well beyond build quality issues obviously.
#14
I'm new to all this, I haven't decided which side to be on yet but I'm tending to drift towards that all cables are the same as they are digital! However maybe the construction of some more expensive is better and would lead to a slight increase resolution but how many ppl are going to notice!!

The most important aspect I would say is that have a good/great tv to view it on, no matter what kind of cable!

Also how can they sell it for £8.99 from £59.99? they must have monkeys making them for peanuts! LOL

they cost peanuts to make, so whatever price they sell them at they would be making loads.

'TRUE 1080p High Definition Picture'

does that description suggest that other HDMI cables are un-true ??

I have my PS3 hooked up to a 1080p 42" LCD with a Thor all singing all dancing gold connectors, oxygen free cable etc etc HDMI cable.

I bought another HDMI cable recently for about £3 from Asda, I have used both in my PS3 and would you guess? the picture looks exactly the same, the difference is un-noticeable.

I voted cold, as I have seen for my own eyes, a cheap and cheerful HDMI cable works exactly the same as one costing an arm & leg.
#17
How can you vote cold when it's such a big saving over the RRP!!!? :whistling: :thumbsup:
#18
9 quid for a well made HDMI cable isn't bad tbh. I've used 3 quid cables, and yes, the picture and sound are the same, but the cable felt shoddily made and I wouldn't fancy ****ing up an HDMI port on my awesome telly just to save a few quid on cabling.

Voted hot.

Yeah just google " Damaged HDMI socket"

It only has to be on sale for 1 day at £59.99 to get that rrp :thumbsup:
#21
These are rubbish i bought one of there 3weeks ago from amazon, plugged it in once was fine decided to pull it out and put it into another hdmi but it was broke no picture or sound tried it on multiple TVs and was no good so i sent it back. If these leads are so good why are they so cheap when the should be £50 i will tell you because people like you and me think that we might aswell pay the couple of quid extra because we will be getting a bargain even if they are rubbish quality which these are

I bought a £3 cable from Tesco which did the same job and still works.For those who think that £100 hdmi leads are better than a £3 lead you are dead wrong all hdmi cables have to be high quality for the HD signal This was tested on the gadget show a few weeks back and it was proved that there is no difference at all, scart leads use to show minimal difference when they where fully screened and used 24k plugs but those days are gone.

Perhaps the cheaper cable was damaged?

HDMI are digital cables. So 1's and 0's go down the cable which creates the picture and sound. As a result whether the cable is made from gold or plastic should have no difference whatsoever - either the signal gets through or not. It's not like analogue cables (eg scart leads) where the picture is more inferior with a worse cable - either there's a pic or not.

It's like gold plated optical cables - where a fibre optic is used to transport a laser, people believe the gold plating somehow helps :o)

What you need is a flexible cable if you're going round bends and this is possibly where the more expensive cable will help.

TBH this is a good deal as I usu buy Neet cables because they last a long time (The cheap asian ones have poorly made connectors from my experience) so Hot.
#26
In the days of analogue and signal degradation, a high quality cable mattered, but I haven't yet heard a convincing argument for a "high quality" digital cable.

Capitialist consumerism in action...
#27
Do you buy a £80 gold plated / fancy name / cool looking cable for your printer ..............No !
You just use the right cable
your telly HDMI cable should be treated in exactly the same way ....If it works thats the best its going to get :-D
#28
I am voting it cold cos of the gold plating...lol...otherwise not a bad price for a quality made cable. Still, a Poundland HDMI cable does the same job IMHO.

The whole HDMI cable debate has been done to death many times before. paul738 made an excellent post on the issue a while back that may be worth looking at for those still undecided.

technically there are 3 different types of hdmi cable (standard, high speed and automotive) to support the at least 4 different hdmi standards (1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.3a), each with 2 types of connectors (type a and b).

when a cable is stated to be gold plated it is for the simplest of reasons: gold doesnt corrode and his highly conductive. this keeps the connector clean and passing the signal the cleanest, sure it is digital, but with a super crappy cable there is a higher chance of bad bits, even with basic crc checking there could be a bad signal. now the probability of such is so remote, even if it is 1 in a billion, a billion bits is only 1 bit per approximately 120MB. HD 1080p uses roughly 1920 x 1080 pixels x 30 fps x 24 colour depth = 1,492,992,000 which is 1.4billion. so, each second there is a 1.4 chance of an error! these numbers are rough and there could be a logic error there - but the point is to emphasis the huge numbers.

the problem comes when you have a crappy source and a crappy output. putting a nice cable in the middle isn't going to make it better. crappy source and output could simply be because of poor quality connectors that are not gold plated. gold plating only needs to be a few microns thick anyway.

another interesting thing to note is the quality of the cable defines the bandwidth. the higher quality the cable the higher the hertz (cycles per second) which means more data. higher quality can be achieved through shielding, better quality wires (different elements (gold, silver, copper), higher purity (less oxygen)), and better connectors. now the more data you can pump down the cable the higher the resolution it supports!

the above are all known issues, but it negates to consider: "will the viewer ever notice" - I dont think so! :) though there reasons not to go for the cheapest hdmi cable out there, i would never go for one more than £10. at 8.99 it looks like you would be getting a good quality cable that you could hang on to for many years.
#33
This has been done to death.

While its true that over small distances the differences between an expensive and cheap cable are so negligible its not even worth stating.

HOWEVER: The build quality of the cables does differ, i have bought several cheap cables which have crapped out on me or broken while removing it from a socket etc. Never pay over £10 for a HDMI (unless the cable needs to tavel over 1.5/2m).

This seems a good deal, a hdmi cable that is cheap enough with decent build quality that will last.

which part (or all) are you calling bs, ill elaborate if need be?

remember my point was (note my summary): that there are technical differences but no one will ever notice.


interestingly after reading paul738 post cited above - i do not agree fully with some of his points, and i too have ee qualifications.. :oops:

I can’t understand why anybody would think that the HDMI socket on a TV was designed for multiple plugging and unplugging of cables:p. If you don’t have enough HDMI sockets buy a switcher;-) And the cheapest cables you can find:thumbsup:

Unfortunately what it really shows is just how much mark up there is on these products and that the buying public are easily fooled. Add a gold plated connector and you can set a silly price which has little relationship the real manufacturing cost. The prime cost of these materials are very low, especially if they are manufactured in the far east.

Some say that not all cables are the same, :-D

I say theres now way I would pay anything over £10 for a HDMI cable :roll:

Not a bad price but it's never worth that price over £50, never
