Might as well buy a cheapy HDMI cable off somewhere like ebay for a couple of quid, it'll give exactly the same picture quality.

It's not just a case of digital signal can use any old cable, read this review I got from Amazon, about this cable actully!

Buyer Beware - you really do get what you pay for...

I bought these cables to connect up a Sony KDL-32W4000 TV, a Sony HT-SS1300 AV Amp, a Sony BD-S550 Bluray player and a Humax HDR Freesat recorder. They worked OK for the basic transmission of picture and sound, but I had all sorts of problems with the Bravia Sync control system. The TV would keep losing its HDMI Control functions and fail to recognise the other Sony components. Sometimes the TV remote would control the AV Amp, other times not - the TV reverting to its own internal speakers. Occasionally the Bravia Sync system became so confused I had to do a full reset on the TV.

After talking to Sony, they suggested that the HDMI cables were just not up to it. To be fair, Sony didn't try to push their own, much more expensive, cables; just that I needed High Speed, fully HDMI 1.3a spec ones.

So I have now bought the High-Speed PLATINUM HDMI Cable (Full-HD 1080p v1.3b 10.2Gbps) from HD Cables (via Amazon). Result? Everything is now performing correctly, but even better, the picture quality is far superior with much better detail, contrast and colour saturation.

So I cannot recommend these cables for anything other than a basic HD Ready setup."

yeah, a one-off anecdotal review that is similar to having a chain smoking great great grandfather living to 110 years old proving that smoking is good for one.

Hardly anecdotal when it's been tried and found wanting, the cheaper ones may well work fine when not being "pushed" to hard but if you're going to spend on a lot system why spoil it for the sake of a few £'s.
The idea that digital either works or does not is rubbish ever seen blocking on a cable TV, caused by bad connections or poor cabling. There is an awful lot of data being transmitted, poor cables or bad jointing can cause very annoying faults that can be intermittent.

i for one dont like to buy cheap HDMI cables, for starters these are braided and look good.
