cables are always cheap at ebuyer. But unless bought with something biger need to pay for P&P

but CCL offers free delivery on small items, so inc postage ccl will be cheaper.

£4.44 inc postage

OK but go to kenable.co.uk are cheaper and wider range (bought 2 x 3m 1080p hdmi + post for £9.25)

I'd rather pay £50 for one.

best to use string its much cheaper
#7
Does it matter how much you pay for these dont they do all the same thing in the end?

I got some free off VirginMedia seems to do the job ok.

How is that relevant to someone who (sarcastically) claims they'd rather pay more. Surely you should suggest they use finely spun layers of 24carat gold, as £50 is not expensive enough?

Andy I think timwishart was being sarcastic, every time someone posts an overpriced cable people reply saying they are pointless and a cheaper cable works just as well - I imagine he was doing the reverse. ;>

Welcome to HUKD abrar. :) (even though you joined 6 months ago)

Can you edit your post to include the price inclusive of postage?
#11
Thanks OP... Ordered 2.. heat added..:thumbsup:
#12
It's a digital signal being transmitted over a short distance, the connection is either there or not. Expensive cables that claim to give better picture quality are a con.
I purchased a non gold plated one of ebay for £2.98 delivered.

#14
Yeah for something as short as 2m these cables do the job just as well. Great to pop on to an order, bargain...voted hot!
#15
I bought two of these last week after seeing the other topic.

Great quality cables which even made a noticable difference and gave a better picture quality over 2 £5.00 each HDMI cables which I bought from eBay six months ago.

Half the price but better quality, this truly is a fantastic deal and voted, hot, hot , hot by me.

Agree with the saint - you should include postage unless you state it as a "filler" item in the title - otherwise it looks like you can buy it for only £2......
#17
Thanks mate. Good find

I think thats just a placebo effect - it's not like an analogue cable - either the signal is getting there or it isn't. if not the picture just won't display (or will breakup).

All cables will give the same picture quality (at such a short length) - just some will last longer than others.
#21
It doesn't say what version it is....does anyone know?
#22
My local computer shop tried to charge me £30 for a 2m gold plated cable!
But then the owner has the upkeep of a Ferrari to worry about. Bless
#23
When will people realise that paying over the odds for a HDMI cable is throwing money away.

This link to the PS3 boards has a helpful post about the electrical properties of HDMI cables and why there's no discernable difference between cheap and expensive cables.

As for me, I voted hot. :thumbsup:

hi, can anyone help me with this question:

Does a DVI splitter decrease quality and does a longer cable decrease picture quality also? I'm looking at 5m. Thanks

No, with my eBay cables there was some slighty grain some times on various Blu-Rays. Now, when watching the same films with the new cables there's none, just perfect high def pictures.

I'm of the opinion the HDMI cables I got from eBay were a bit ****, regardless of the 'digital is digital, no diference' rule which usually applies.

Please don't imply there's no difference when both my partner and I have seen it with our own eyes.

There is no way a digital cable can introduce grain, so I'm not implying there is no difference - I'm telling you outright there is no difference and it's simply a placebo effect.

Please don't try and claim otherwise, it's simply ridiculous.

Any grain is from the source (which lots of BR and HDDVD's still look grainy), or the TV doing a bad job of displaying the source.

'digital is digital, no diference' rule which usually applies.
ALWAYS applies.

I don't have to prove myself to you.

It's obvious the cables I bought on eBay had something wrong with them and didn't display the picture properly. It seems in this case that certain brands of cheap HDMI cable can impede the picture quality.

Regardless of what you say about 'digital is digital, full stop', unless you come to my house and see the difference you can't call me either a liar or someone under the 'Placebo effect'

This is hilarious, I love listening to gullible people like you spouting this garbage........very entertaining.

Any more?

At 5m, it does make a bigger difference....depends if you think its worth the extra expense.....most cheap cables are max 2m...there is a reason for that...not that the numpties on here would understand....but dont take my word for it, buy a cheap 5m one (if you can find one) and see what its like

I have a unicorn in my garden, and unless you come to my house and investigate then you cant tell me otherwise.

Thanks for the info. I only have one DVI output on my video card and I need two so if I get a cheapo DVI splitter is it likely to affect quality at all? Thanks again

you seem quite in the know....do you have any facts though?
what he is implying is that the build quality of the cable was rubbish...how hard is that to understand
why do you assume the grainy picture is from the source...it could be any component between the dvd (disk damage) and the tv (inc. cables, amp, tv-upscaling)

A lifetime LIFETIME WARRANTY? As opposed to a 4 month LIFETIME WARRANTY? :whistling:
Great price, voted hot hot hot!

prove it


Prove what? if a signal doesn't get through then you get breakup (just watch skydigital or freeview).

It's simple physics, a child can see it. grain is introduced when part of the signal is lost via an analogue connection. signal loss in a digital connection will result in picture breakup and clicks & high pitched squeaks in the audio.

Again, even children understand this.

"numpties" indeed...


what he is implying is that the build quality of the cable was rubbish...how hard is that to understand

It's not, and I'd expect the build quality of most cables under £3-£5 to be on the rubbish side.

why do you assume the grainy picture is from the source...it could be any component between the dvd (disk damage) and the tv (inc. cables, amp, tv-upscaling)

Because a digital connection CANNOT introduce grain. The CCD on a camera is responsible for most grain, anything recorded on film is liable to film grain, digital cameras will give you image noise which is similar. Grain effects can/are added to give movies a certain look. Thats the source taken care of (although bad mastering can play a part in it too).

I never assumed it was from the source, I said it was from the source or the tv doing a bad job of displaying it (as you say, the tv's upscaler and any video processors).

Disc damage wouldn't introduce grain, just like the cable wouldn't - scratch a disc up and see what happens; grain doesn't mysteriously appear, you get jumps in the video and squeaks/pops/clicks in the audio.

the burden of proof should be on the one making the extraordinary claim. prove that theres no unicorn in my garden.

Have to agree with DUN3 here.

If there is signal loss in digital format, you will witness digital break up and not grainyness.

i cant find it now, but a little while ago i read a HDMI cable review. The conclusion was that for lengths under 20m, the price of the cable didnt affect the quality of the picture.

For longer lengths paying more was of benefit...
