No such thing as a '1.3' cable - it's the AMOUNT and FREQUENCY of that amount of data that is being passed over a digital cable that matter in terms of its spec and at this length just about any HDMI cable should be able to carry any HDMI signal. (HDMI 1.3 spec and HDCP signals are fundamentally attributes of the data values passed on the cable - it would be like advertising a monitor cable as 'French language' compatible because it will allow French characters on the monitor!)

That said I bought one of these cables for my folks upscaling Sony DVD player to a Sharp 42" HDMI TV last year at this price and plus factors:
- the length, a generous 2.4m gives you great flexibility for routing
- quality of construction is evident

However the colour and pattern of the cable covering are plain daft - a cable needs to be as inconspicuous as possible and this sure isn't so you'll definitely want to route 100% out of sight.

So overall £10 is a 'fair' price for it delivered (less quidco/discount etc) but not great value for a 2.4m HDMI cable.

£7.57 delivered at ebuyer for 3m and some of their HDMI cables have free delivery so if you're bothered to search around them you'll probably find one for even less than £7.57.

other members have previously stated that this cable is one of the best available for the price which is why it is always out of stock at play...I've been waiting for it to come back into stock and ordered...could have got one for £3.99 in home bargains on Saturday but this is the one I wanted

Good cable, mk-donald is right about the colours though.
And correct me if im wrong, but there is such a thing as 1.3.... You should do research before posting derogatory remarks on someone else's post.

Nice cable think. Definitely worth getting, just make sure that your TV is 1.3 compatible... :thumbsup:

Dear god here we go again.

Please read the last few pages of this thread http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/194662/2-metre-hdmi-cable-3-75-delivered-c

Yes there is such thing as a 1.3 HDMI cable but you dont need a 1.3 cable.

Your link however has nothing to do with the cables, its refering to the HDMI electronics in the devices and not the cables.

There is nothing on the market at that moment than needs a 1.3 cable. Any HDMI cable (within reason) will cope with anything you can currently throw at it.

Dont forget that the device is different from the cable itself, you do need 1.3 devices to do certain things such as bitstream HD Audio, but you dont need a 1.3 cable to do the same.

Its all in the link with reasons why all proved by looking at the bandwidth numbers.

Its all marketing hype at the moment.

I have had this cable for a year now and I have found it to be extremely good quality. it looks a lot better in real life than the pic BTW.

If you are in to that kind of thing :w00t:

Broadsword my main man, i'm not going anywhere.... :)

You say... 'Dont forget that the device is different from the cable itself, you do need 1.3 devices to do certain things such as bitstream HD Audio, but you dont need a 1.3 cable to do the same.'

Don't take this the wrong way, but the last bit kinda confuzzled me. You don't need a 1.3 cable to do the same as what? :?'

I'm not trying to be rude or anything. I'm just trying to understand what you mean, its good to learn a new thing everyday :-D

The official HDMI 1.3 specification doesn't really cover the cables, it may touch on it in places but in reality its talking about the devices, i.e the port on the amp or bluray player and the electronics inside it etc. That can be HDMI 1.1 or 1.2 or 1.3 etc etc. Much like USB 1.0, 2.0 etc. You know when you buy a USB 1.0 or 2.0 PCI card for your pc? Well its the same thing, the usb cable is irrelevant isn't it? However the maufacturers still advertise usb 2.0 usb cables. Big con.

It really isn't the cable.

Now, there is another specification that does cover the ables, but its not the same thing, its called category 1 and category 2. Its not really 1.1. or 1.3 despite the fact it generally gets called that.

So don't confuse the 2.

So for example you want to bitstream HD audio from your BD player to your amp. Assuming that both devices can handle bitstreaming then both will have to have 1.3 HDMI sockets on them.

i.e that follows the HDMI 1.3 spec.

The cable you use to connect the two together does not have to have this spurious 1.3 certified badge that seems to have appeared.

Any cable will do that.

The HDMI 1.3 certified cables, or more correctly the category 2 HDMI cables will be needed in the future when resolutions are higher (1600p) and features like true colour are implemented.

It is totally irrelevant today to do HD audio or 1080p.

I am looking to buy a HDMI cable, preferably 2m or more in length, in order to connect my upscaling DVD player to my new Toshiba 37XV503DB. Am I right in stating that unlike SCART cables, the more expensive HDMI cables do NOT function better than the considerably cheaper ones. In that respect, can someone advice me as to which HDMI cable will be appropriate for the connection I referred to above, i.e. a link to the product, online merchant, etc. Any help will be greatly appreciated...
