Ice Cold.
a HDMI cable is a HDMI cable. You can get them for about a quid.

Capitalism in action mate.

If I paint a banana white, call it a platinum banana and charge £8 for it..
1. It's still a banana
2. Some idiots would buy it.

Hmmm.. only about £7 overpriced :p.

what a rotten deal, £1 each would be on dear side.
#10
cold for me you can get it in poundland at a fraction of the cost

Since an HDMI cable carries digital information, as long as it's not broken, one is as good as another. So no point paying for expensive ones. The only exception may be for long cables (>5m) where you can get interference, but not an issue for most people.

own personal experience.

i've bought a number of cheap cables before and after a while they have knackered (stretching, kids etc.). if your hanging a tv on a while please for your own sake buy a decent'ish one other wise you will regret it when you have to channel the wall out again.

im not saying spend £40, but that cable looks a hell of alot better than the crap from the £1 shop.

Much better to teach your kids not to touch, and there shouldn't be a load on a cable to strech it.

Agreed. I've bought cheap cables before (that includes Amazon basics) and the overall quality of the cable and connections is poor. I spent a little bit more last time and bought cables from Neet, not had any problems since. Spending between £5 and £10 on an HDMI cable seems fine to me...

If she's yanking the cables on a wall mounted TV enough to knacker them, I'd be more worried about her knocking the TV of the wall mate (potentially onto her head) :(

Personally I've never had a problem with any HDMI cable, and I've been using (cheap) ones since the early days of Sky HD & BD. Unfortunately the maxim you get what you pay for doesn't always apply. It doesn't cost several quid to make a better connector, in my experience most of the additional cost goes to retailer/brander margins not improving manufacturing/testing :(

mentos, let me assure you she doen't hang from the wires :)

maybe i should make myself clearer, the cheap cables which knackered weren't in the wall they were just in a unit. but when you have SkyHD, wii. ps3, 360, WDTV and sweet wrappers all behind the unit it becomes a tad messy no matter how much you try! things get pulled and unplugged and this can cause the issues.

im just giving a heads up to people, if you are looking at hanging a tv on a wall with 'channelled' wires just spend that little bit more for a better protected wire. if you want to use a cheap wire fine.

Ah, that makes it clearer. Was thinking she must be bloody "good" to get at them behind the panel mounted on a wall :D

I do agree I wouldn't bury cables that looked flimsy into a wall (have got 4 x 15m in the wall myself) However, I know its often hard to judge purely from looking at the cable and connector if its truly durable. Thats why I would always adise embedding some spares or better still some CAT6. I've gone the CAT 6 route for my spares, as its more versatile (can re-terminate, use for other stuff) and the price of Baluns these days makes it viable for almost everyone.
