Great price!

Ebuyer HDMI A/M 19Pin to HDMI A/M 19Pin 2M in Black

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specification that combines video and audio into a single digital interface for use with DVD players, digital television (DTV) players, set-top boxes, and other audiovisual devices. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video plus standard to multi-channel surround-sound audio. HDMI benefits include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to 5 gigabytes per second, one connector instead of several cables and connectors, and communication between the video source and the DTV. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements. Instead of using multiple of the two dozen connectors on the back of a home theatre component, you use just one HDMI connection.

HDMI offers two big benefits: - Instead of needing multiple cables for the video signal and multiple cables for the sound signal, HDMI integrates all video and sound signals onto a single, thin cable. It makes it trivially easy to connect components together. - Instead of converting digital signals to analogue (to run through the cables) and then back to digital, everything on an HDMI cable remains in its original, uncompressed digital format. HDMI 19 Pin Male Connector


Our range of HDMI cables are 100% compatible with all Hi-Definition Standards (720p,1080i & 1080p) They are also HDCP Compatible (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) - the content scrambling standard used in all current TV/Satellite and Cable boxes/DVD/Projectors etc.
We are so confident in the quality of our cables that we supply a LIFE TIME WARRANTY.

Only for baskets less than £10. For others, it's the usual courier

I have tried it with just one cable in the cart, and still no free delivery. (Royal Mail come out at £3.99)

Spent thousands with them, so it can't be because I'm a new customer.

Still voted HOT though.

I added it to my basket, then logged into my account. It then showed it as free next day delivery.
#11
from experience it's best topay around £30 for one!
#12
Under <=2M, I wouldn't spend more that £8-10.
Over >2M, I'd possibly go up to £20.
Over >3M, I'd be asking myself why my PS3 is so far from my telly!!

From the laymans perspective, there's no difference between a network cable, and a HDMI lead. Both carry digital data. Both are rated to a specific bandwidth. And, I wouldn't dream of buying OFC with gold-plated connector network cables, in the hope it would improve my network connection. Work would kill me if all the network cables I bought had that spec, and more imporantly, that price!

nah, this cable is way to expensive...i use string ftom b&q...its much cheaper at 1p/metre and works brilliantly - you lot are wasting your money....lol :roll:

I'm an idiot so i prefer spending £60 on one. Cold:whistling:

if you can afford it then why not. but i see it like this - you prob have a £100 pair of shoes where my cost £20 but they both do exactly the same thing. the only difference being yours will be made slightly better material and come in a better box . same with hdmi leads.
ive seen cheap leads and expensive leads on the same tv - IMHO no difference and thats on a 42" . now if you are going into megabuks screens 50- 60" or even theres a 100" one out there for around £50,000 then yes maybe one of the top branded expensive hdmi cables would be more apllicable .

sorry - no offence i hope
#21
I have a few different HDMI leads, the most expensive being around £14. The big difference between that one and the few £2 leads I have is the connector. On the cheps ones they can easily come out of the socket by just moving the equipment.

Never spend more than £15 but to me its worth getting a decent cable just for the connectors on them being much better and fitting properly.

jakenjo;1590146
yes, you have to buy and compare, moron

no all cables are the same as a piece of string..i work for myself as a freelance telecoms/IT expert and they still would rather believe that all cables are the same because joe bloggs the cleaner's website says so...but i dont care let them carry on....guess you wouldnt notice much diff if you have a beko or dmtech lcd
me, im going to go and spend £5K on av/tv kit and wire it all up with string....im also going to buy a ferrari and run it on water instead of petrol because its cheaper and itll work, well thats what joe's site said anyway...even though he says he's never seen a ferrari

some intelligence at last, but whatever you say im still gonna use string......though john round the corner from me said that shoe laces are better but cost £1/metre, but i told him not to waste his money

Amazon do HDMI cables for cheaper than this.

Anyone who wants to see 100s of posts making it clear that cheap cables are just as good as expensive ones can check out this thread: http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=477281&page=1

One snippet from just one of those posts:

FACT - HDMI say a cable is not a proper HDMI cable if its error rate is greater than one bit in 1 billion (that's 1,000,000,000).
FACT - On a full HDTV there are 1920 x 1080 pixels, that's 2,073,600 pixels. That's sent 24 times per seconds.
FACT - That's just under 50 million pixels per second.
FACT - that means that, if every bit of information is one full pixel, then a HDMI cable must have a maximum error rate of less than one faulty pixel every 20 seconds. Absolute maximum.

I can understand why people think their £30+ 1m HDMI cable is way better than their mates £2 version. The alternative is too horrible for them to consider, as it means they've flushed £28+ down the toilet. It's simply the placebo effect in action. The strange thing is that these people don't generally see the need for gold plated kettle leads, mains plugs, USB cables etc.

Not this one (though it's only 1m). I got it with a player I bought from them, so shipping was free.

Hi jakenjo,

I have some magic fairy dust that, when sprinkled over your telly, will improve the picture quality no end. Simply send me a cheque for £30 and I will send some to you. PM me for details.

Thats a bargain, shouldn't you start a thread of its own for this wonder dust :w00t:

There is at least a company that's done this already, magic dust potion in soft drinks, it is coca cola made of concentrate chemicals and extracts and diluted with water and pumped up with green house gases. You will need to spend a lot of money in marketing and promotion to get your magic dust to sell though.
[COLOR="Red"]Seriously a well constructed digital cable will be superior. Any one who has worked in IT in hardware cabling knows the disastrous consequence of cheap digital cable vs. expensive digital cable. I suggest any one who thinks all digital cables are the same should do some reading on the internet. One of the most important aspect is that digital signal still travels down copper wire and the copper wire needs to be well shielded, earthed and has a balum , preferably at both ends. For high bandwidth digital data you will need better cables, that is why, for example in ethernet cables you have different standard cables for 10mb/s, 100 mb/s and now 1Gbit/s.USB 2 and USB 3 will have higher demands for better quality cables and of shorter length.However I have to say that for video viewing it is not important to loose some data on the way from the PC to the monitor.[/COLOR] Although the effect is minor and it may even be in the mind but it is what is in the mind that matter to the individual, here is what someone post on What Hi Fi web site after reading recommendations on What Hi Fi review:-
I bought a PS3 from play.com (in fact, didn't actually want it as I had an Xbox 360, but forgot I'd pre-ordered it about 16 months before!). Decided to keep it, it came with a free HDMI cable etc. When I got it, and started to use it, I loved it (outside of playing games on it - this is a bonus with the PS3 if you ask me).

After a few months, having bought several Blu-Ray films, thought, let's see what a new HDMI cable does. Read a few posts on forums and saw the argument about how digital is either on or off (and agreed with them to a certain extent). Then, I looked at WHF reviews (which I trust) and saw the Chord 1.3 Silver Plus as the recommended cable for about my price range and the rave reviews it got. So, given the conflicting opinions, I got one on condition I could take it back if I noticed no difference.

I played Casino Royale through the PS3 with the normal cable first, to get an idea of what had to be beat. Then I played Casino Royale through the Chord. Ohhh! It was so much better! Everything was smoother, and a bit clearer I think (not sharper, but clearer). I swapped a couple more times, but I was happy it was worth the extra, so I kept it.

Many will say I saw the "placebo effect" - I'm not sure how since I would prefer it if the normal cable was better and I could keep the £80 to spend on more Blu-Ray discs! I can't deny (or explain) the difference in picture I saw, nor would I want to. The fact is, I'm happy with it, so I kept it.
--------------------end of cut and paste from What Hi Fi web site user comments
Bottom line is, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and visual wonder is what the "mind" feels rather than what the eye senses. Better cables will always be at "rip off" prices mostly as less than 3% of population will want to pay more for a bit better performance. 97% will buy the normal standard stuff. So the volume purchase of 97% of the rest will get bigger volume discounts. So small 3% volumes will always be much more expensive. For £1000 worth, say of LCD/Plasma + Hifi, you may not want £30 (expensive cable) minus £3 (cheap cable)= £27 differnece [COLOR="Red"]to be your weakest link out[/COLOR] of £1000 worth of stuff. Especially, real or virtual, you can actually see a difference!

Not sure why you would think that? Its a digital signal. Paying more is a big con for these cables.

Digital information can get lost, this is called error rate. The error may not be corrected, partially corrected or corrected fully. Correction ability depends software/firmware.

The error rate for any HDMI cable can be no higher than 1 bit per billion, no matter how cheap it is. If you are seriously telling me that one incorrect pixel displayed every 20 seconds (and that's a worst case scenario) makes a discernible difference to viewing then you undermine your credibility IMO.

Also, we're not talking about people on here buying 3000 of these for use in industry/chasing through multiple walls and floors. It's people who want to connect their PS3 or HD upscaler to their TVs. If these 'shoddy' cables fall apart at the rate of one a year then it'll still be cheaper to buy five of these than get one uber expensive cable. You even admit that any difference may be in the mind of the viewer.
