I have one of these and the braided cables do offer a quality look and feel to the whole thing - but they are not flexible at all (doesn't bother me) so if you need to route the cable in any way I would look at something else.

Hot from me though!!;)

Yep if this was in Currys or Comet you would be looking at £39.99 because of the vast amount of oxygen less copper that has gone into making this product.:p

wrong, you need to learn something about cable quality, data transmission and also HDMI standards & testing

for the average home user a 99p cable will be fine..you probably wouldnt notice the different between one for 99p and one that costs £40....unless you are some techno geek...lol....i used a £40 monster hdmi cable and one i bought from amazon for a few quid on my 40" samsung lcd tv with sky hd channels....to be honest i didnt notice the slightest difference...

Cold, on the ground that these cheap HDMI cable deals are getting kinda boring now.
#15
I was under the impression that you can get better quality ones from currys..
#16
The only time you will notice a difference between standard and expensive cables is when the cable is longer than five meters as after that the signal degrades bear in mind most cables used in the average home cinema are 1 to a max of 3 m long as everyone says a cable like this will do the same job

I absolutely agree on picture quality, but I dont buy bottom end of the market HDMI cables anymore. I have have too many 99pish cables leave the connector in my HDMI socket now when I pull it out. But then maybe I move my cables around more than most. I now buy HDMI cables based on durability, but provided they work and dont fall apart they all work exactly the same.

(except for 3D)

I spent 5 years studying this, perhaps we could benefit from your insights.

(well not specifically HDMI but digital electronics)

er what you on about??

Explain....
#22
The connector on this is quite large so beware if you have another socket right next to it. I have a similar cable and if I use it with my WDTV there is not enough room to use one of the usb slots.
As people have already said; it's not worth worrying about which price range cable you buy for such a short run.

oxygen-free as well, nice! :{

er what you on about??Explain....

Expensive HDMI cables follow the same principe as commercial grade communications cabling - it only makes a difference when you're at the end of the specification in terms of distance

I'll explain why... Whilst transmissions are all digital, your cable is still prone to electrical loss and attenuation. As long as you put in a one or zero bit and get out a one or zero bit at the other end, everything else like how much electrical loss you get on the cable is somewhat irrelevant (unless you're at the edge of causing errors due to attentualtion or the cable is likely to break easily and cause errors).

I don't know the full HDMI 1.4 spec but at up to 10 metres, the picture from a £1 cable will be should be perfect at up to 10 metres.

I'm just waiting for the nay-sayers to shoot down someone who's been in communications for 12 years and dealt with rubbish places for communications like African countries and Afghanistan with bit error rate and pattern testers and commission times of up to 12 hours to prove the communications path! :D

The ones I bought were £1.37 each. They're slightly cheaper, 0.6m longer and work fine.

I have one of these cables and in truth i found that because it is slightly rigid & in a woven jacket it was easier to thread from a hole in the wall behind my tv down to another about 1.5m down. My other 2 HDMI cables where much harder to thread .

Don't you just love these threads.

Can you point me (and others) in the direction of a cable other than this that would give noticeable difference in quality to the average user in a typical setup i.e. PS3>32"LCD less than 3mtrs apart ?

Just bought aN expensive new printer cable which should give me better image quality when I print!

Good spot, I picked up a cheapo in poundland today, only 1m mind and doesn't look as good quality as this. I agree that the signal quality will be fine, but with the cheap cables my concern would be that the connections might snap off or something
