Cheaper and better then the ones in comet/currys, 29 Jul 2009
By Mr Blobby (London, UK) - See all my reviews

Very good HDMI, this looks better, is cheaper, and works better then any other HDMI cables i have. Dont get ripped off by paying £50 for a cable at comet or curries, also they wont look as half as nice as this. The gold connection really does perform. If you wand to connect your PS3, this works a treat. The visuals of the games look great. This cable will give you true 1080P.




A very heavy duty cable, 17 Sep 2009
By Duronic Team "Duronic Team" (UK) - See all my reviews

This cable has a solid metal connection to give better reception. The problem the other reviewer had is easily resolved bi tightening the connectors. This cable is made to last, hence robust materials have been used. Tightening the gold connectors will secure you get best reception

Bad cable, 16 Sep 2009
By P. McDonough (UK) - See all my reviews


This cable is badly put together. It appears that the gold connection bits must have a bad connection to the actual cable part. Any movement of this cable, or the media player it is attached to will lose the signal. Don't be fooled by the "Original price". I am returning for a refund.

Why spend more than you need to on a digital cable? It gives NO added benefit, anyone claiming otherwise either doesn`t understand the technology behind digital encrypted signals, or is trying to convince themselves that they didn`t get ripped off when they spent £100 on a Monster HDMI cable :-)

Or people need to stop convincing themselves that cables degrade significantly when sat behind a tv not moving. Sorry but £10 is a waste when I can get a cable for £2. My HDMI cable is over 2 years old and working just fine after moving the TV between houses, removal of the PS3 its connected to out of the way and still plugs in fine. Oh and I paid £3 for mine.

Gold plating on a digital cable does nothing because so long as the connection is made it will still work. Unlike analogue signals. It is the usual misnomer that consumers will believe anything because of a perception about a particular feature works across all items using it. Gold plating works great for old analogue stereo systems but makes no difference to modern digital systems other than as a gimmic.

Very good HDMI,
Like most of them
this looks better,
and you are concerned with constantly looking behind your TV why?
is cheaper,
£10 isnt cheap for a HDMI....
and works better then any other HDMI cables i have.
Are we comparing HDMI to a scart lead
Dont get ripped off by paying £50 for a cable at comet or curries, also they wont look as half as nice as this.
Well thats probably true with DSG and co. But again if you are paying more than a few quid for a cable you are being ripped off. The only exception are gripper HDMI cables that hold well to connections made vertically into a HDMI.
The gold connection really does perform. If you wand to connect your PS3, this works a treat. The visuals of the games look great. This cable will give you true 1080P
In exactly the same way every other HDMI cable will do the same

Are you skipping around the house with them? Wrangling cattle? Scaling cliffs?

They sit behind equipment without so much as a breeze to disturb them.

ive done an installation or two with the hdmi cable chased in the wall...believe me you dont want to 'risk' using a £2 cable that might degrade in a year or two. Buy quality and worry less about it, and i bet it will last longer.

also for example my mum has cats so i got her latex covered ones so if they decide to have a nibble it wont get damaged...

Want one of the best 1 Metre HDMI cables? Then get it ffs.

You don't need it? Shut up.

I can buy a watch for £5 and it will last for 40 years and will tell me the time, but I can also buy a watch for £5million, even though it does EXACTLY the same thing.

People who buy this have dosh, and don't watch the cheap HDMI cables available everywhere.

I know some people who buy gold plates cables for EVERYTHING, they want the best.

Someone clearly doesnt like discussion. Certainly no sense of when you are wasting your money. Gold plated digital cables are a waste of money as they do nothing to assist a digital signal.

Yes but the 5mil one will be a lot more watch for your money. Diamonds, prestige and exclusivity etc. More money on a HDMI cable would be best spend on a grabber HDMI. As the gold plated aspect will be a waste of your money.

Funny cat... latex wouldn't stop a limp woodlouse from chewing through! Any cat I have seen would chew through a steel lift cable - but of course being a cat, it would only be if the mood so came over him. In fact it might even encourage chewing as the latex will give added "mouth feel, after all, cat and dog chew toys are made of rubber!" ;-)

its that hard plastic like latex so i doubt it feels like rubber its hard but flexible, and yes they probably could chew through it, but not as easy as a standard cable but yet again i paid under a fiver for it.

Even the ones ive run through walls or even my long one i use for my projector all cost me under a tenner, i still search for bargains.

i would never buy one for example jsut because it was gold plated, or just because it was latex covered, or just because its armoured unless i have a need for it.

Pretentious gits probably have no idea what constitutes the best. They just like flashing the cash.

I have a mate who just pays through the nose for everything. When he's showing me his latest over-priced acquisition all I can think is ar$e

Why would you want to spend more money then necessary on something like this? I can see that for a particular application you might want to spend more but not for ordinary everyday use. Unless you are an ar$e

If they want the best, why do they buy gold plated cables? All gold plating does is let you pay a lot more for a cable that does EXACTLY the same job.

There is no corrolation between the price of a HDMI cable, and the quality, once you get to a point where all the wires are connected according to the standard. Any over-engineering is simply a way for get idiots to pay more money, and nothing more. There is NO signal degredation, there is NO difference in picture quality, and anyone saying otherwise is a liar, plain and simple. Despite there being many threads like this online, nobody has ever given a convincing arguement why a more expensive HDMI cable would give a better picture on a TV.

you wont find better value hdmi cable that this:

imho its pointless spending stupid ammounts on hdmi leads, unless you are sending signals over a long distance or you want more sturdy connections if you are constantly plugging ang unplugging them.

You can clearly see that using a cheap cable might lead to ghosting, and data-lag (personal experiance).

So people who think are the most clever coz they bought a £2 cable instead of £10 one, are actually not.

Cable are same as ink carts, u can get the cheap ones who will work NEARLY the same as orignals but will never exceed them.

People who say that its a waste of money, this cable might not be value for money but certainly is better than the cheap one.

A cable with beads must stop signal interference upto some extent and will have less data-lag, and I cant see any reason why it should be.

There is a specification for the maximum error rate allowed for a compliant HDMI cable (IIRC it`s of the order of 10^-9 bits). Errors above that degrade the signal in a digital manner.

Why is data lag important for a digital signal in this way? Any lag imposed by the cable will be consistent for all the information sent along the cable. A lag of 1 second just means that you see on your screen what the display device was showing 1 second ago, nothing more and nothing less. Bearing in mind that the transmission time for a typical cable is of the order of nano-seconds, any lag involved is completely insignificant.

The people posting in the forum you linked to are trying to convince themselves that a moreexpensive cable makes a difference, that`s all. Until and unless someone can provide proof, in terms of a double blind test done under scientific conditions, I`ll stand by my claim that spending upwards of £5 on a HDMI cable, unless you have very specific requirements (for example a more robust connector) is stupidity.

Are you able to provide any scientific evidence to support your claim that an expensive HDMI cable gives better picture quality that a cheaper one?

Voted cold.

You can pay less than a fiver if you shop around. http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/hdmi-hdmi-cable-1m.html
Granted, the cable itself might look "basic" but who cares? The picture and sound quality is identical no matter what HDMI cable you buy.

If someone can`t rpovide scientific evidence as to why two cables that have the same specification produce different results then their claims must be treated as false. :-)

Gold plated digital cables are a waste of money as they do nothing to assist a digital signal.

If your TV and AV equipment have gold plated connectors, you should use a gold plated cable. If they are nickel then you should nickel plated cables. Mixing gold and nickel connectors increases the rate of corrosion of the nickel connector until eventually there is no longer a good enough electrical connection.

I wonder how much atmospheric moisture would be required for the corrosion to have an effect within a reasonable amount of time. For all we know, in normal conditions, it could take many years before any appreciable corrosion takes place, by which time we'll all be moving onto super HD with DisplayPort or whatever connection is invented. We need a scientist!

It only takes a fairly short while. In the olden days of 486 processors, I saw a similar effect on the memory sockets/sticks. So it is something that happens within the working life of a product.
