hdmi cables on here recently for a quid,
#2
Im pretty sure with HDMI cables they either work or don't. Its just 1's and 0's getting passed down the line.

Analog was different as that was an analog signal (waves)

Overpriced tosh if you ask me, never go near a monster product!
#3
I bet the vibrancy, colour tone and sound brilliance are much enhanced by this superb cable (in the opinion of some junk magazine paid to say crap like that)/.

In analog maybe, not with digital cables.

^ good thread from the avf there. Pretty much saying below 5metres there is no difference as signal quality does not drop off unless cable is damaged.

Yeah that's the joke, the hifi magazines seem to review digital cables as if they were analogue trying to sell the expensive cables, they're so stuck in their ways they can only use analogue-related catch-phrases to try justify spending £100 on a cable where a £5 one is just as good.

Oops, I only read half of you post, then reread it after I posted my reply to realise you were joking lol

Psst...
Wanna buy a bridge ?

So is this just as good as my free virgin hdmi? as in What hi fi magazine i brought yesterday it said you can tell the difference on hdmi cables no matter what people tell you:o
#9
Thought I read somewhere that these cables are so rigid that over time the hdmi port on your device can work loose.
#10
Ah think ill leave it , how comes it was over £100 if its so rubbish , if they all do the same thing then why are some only a few pounds and some alot more and why do allt he mags say give them reviews if they do all the same thing?

I just spent a £1000 on a new tv so if it makes a difference at all from my free virgin media hdmi cable then i would like to know?
#11
I bought these for a grand and they're excellent. But to get the full experience you have to regularly lubricate the outside of the cable with Monster Snake Oil, and that only costs 3 grand for a year's supply.

Oh! The usual "all cables are the same" brigade is at it again with links to forum discussion sites and talking about "1's & 0's"!!!
SO... is this a HOT deal or not?? Let me remind you that this is the purpose of this site! I actually think a lot of you are missing the point. Are all HDMI cables the same? My **** they are!
The current standard of HDMI is version 1.3 with version 1.4 in release. Bear in mind that the HDMI standard is evolving very quickly and transfer rates for future equipment will increase with it.
Forget the snake oil... what you should consider is "is the HDMI lead I buy (for £1 or £100) future proof"? Will it work with the latest 'cutting edge' technology and that emerging tomorrow? Is it suitable for the equipment I need it for, e.g. for a 1080p 12-bit 60Hz Blu-ray Player you will need 6.68 Gbps Category 2 (High Speed) HDMI cable? Now you may be able to find one for a £1 (if you're lucky)... but probably not.
I'm voting this deal HOT! It’s a good price for a top quality cable that has a 10.2 Gbps transfer rate capability. Also, Monster offers a ‘Cable for Life’ guarantee.

Horrid horrid company and I wouldn't pee on their Directors if they were on fire. The sooner this company goes breasts up the better.

And believe me, 1's are 1's and 0's are 0's - fools and their money are easily parted if you think this cable is any better than the cables that are a fraction of this price.

chilly in here :)

Okay, I'll use my Honours Degree in Electronic Communications and years of experience in the industry to state this is massively over specced and over engineered for home use. Not all cables are the same, but a £3 cable that won't fall apart in your hands is more than adequate.

A properly made cable will work as good as any other, end of. Badly made cables may deteriorate before the 5m length generally commented on, but most just work. I think the people who say it makes a difference are trying to justify their waste of a hundred notes.
#19
Ok... here we go... and wait for the deluge of abuse... I've compared a number of hdmi leads on my Pioneer Kuro 5090 (no ol' rubbish - regarded as just about the best panel you can get) and I can categorically state that hdmi leads are not all the same: you get what you pay for. I've A/B'd cheap ones for £1 and decent ones of different makes, and I reckon that if you buy a QED (you can get one discounted for around £25-30, and some AV mags even give them away with subscriptions) you'll get a better picture than with something costing £1. In my experience, the hdmi lead SKY supply with their HD box is nfg, yet the one that was supplied with the 360 isn't bad, but not great. If you have SKY HD, you'll definitely get a sharper pic and brighter colours with a better lead. I've tested it myself extensively with a number of leads on SKY HD, HD-DVDs on a Toshiba XE1, DVDs on a Denon 1940, Blu Rays and games on a PS3, and a 360 - through an Onkyo 606 amp. There's no point spending hundreds/thousands on AV gear and not using decent connectors, or your system will be reduced to the quality of its weakest link. The accepted wisdom on HDUK seems to be that all hdmi cables are the same 'cos they're digital; take it from me - they're not.
There... I've gone and done it, 'cos I'm fed up with reading a lot of misinformation about hdmi leads on here. Hope this helps any interested parties.

Monster cables are a rip off, but £17.99 for a 2.5M HDMI cable with a life long warranty, in my opinion is not a bad deal at all.
The HDMI debate will continue for years but certain people feel better spending their money on a known brand, if thats the case then buy this cable.
#22
As the OP of this deal let me say, I believe (and some have demonstrated) that their is a difference between a £1 and a £20 cable, have you ever cut open a £1 cable and seen that quality of soldering?

Would I spend £100 on a HDMI cable? Hell no!
Would I spend £1 on a HDMI cable? Probably (I have spent £3-£12 before)

However I was happy to pay £18 for a cable that "some" people have paid over £100 for. If I do ever have any picture or audio issues I know it will not be the cable! Also if my next equipment supports Ethernet over HDMI or 2 way audio monster will swap the cable for me to allow this function to work.

Am I happy? :thumbsup:
#23
If you're a videophile and have splashed out on an expensive high-end system then I wouldn't imagine for a second that you would choose a Tesco Value cable to link it all together.

On the other side of the coin if you have a £20 HDMI DVD player then you are unlikely to buy a cable that costs more than device you're plugging it into.

So there very little point to this argument.
#24
For what it's worth, although I consider myself a bit of an video/audiophile I only buy inexpensive HDMI cables. I'm happy with the results, however I nothing to compare them to.

That said, I do not have the cash or the drive to buy a collection of expensive HDMI cables to test which ones work best with my devices.

At this price it's well worth a punt though, so it's hot from me.

[If there are any braniac engineers listening, could you explain how there could be a difference between cheap and expensive digital cables? Cheers :-) ]

If being gold plated is all that matters see http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130511 £6.55 for a 5 metre cable, the cable itself is nice and thick too. Lifetime warranty too.
#26
I like my cables to look nice.

I know I am being silly but I do. However £5.00 gets a nice looking hdmi cable.

Got to say I waver on this because, like so many others, I have no way of making the direct comparison myself and, I suspect, most of the people on here panning expensive cables have more than likely not sat and watched the same piece of film again and again with a variety of varying cables in a "blind test".

It is your money and you spend it how you wish.

Price, cost and value are three entirely unrelated things.

I'll Take my Honours Degree in Electronics and Broadcast and 10 years of industry experience and second what you posted.

The only thing I'll add is that if the cable is too heavy, it can begin to damage the crappy HDMI connectors in your equipment over time. DVI got this right with sturdy screw-down connections.

One immediate flaw that jumps out to me.
HDMI version 1.4 is, currently, expected to change the plug type to accommodate higher audio and video bandwidth alongside a 100Mbps ethernet connection. So your future proof argument bares no relation to the actual situation and shouldn't really be used.

Besides, anyone that uses the phrase "future proof" when trying to express why I should buy an item of tech is either lying his **** off to make a sale or totally ignorant to how quickly tech evolves. With the HDMI 1.4 example above you can see how tech is already trying to obsolete itself, thereby giving the lie to anyone using the phrase "future proof" when talking about televisions.
There are plenty of other examples, computers being the main one at the moment.

In-built obsolescence is a necessity for consumerism to work, if nothing wore out or needed to be upgraded then people wouldn't consume.

This is a good deal regardless of your opinion on the product.

I don't like marmite but if someone posted a deal for a bucket of it for 10p at tesco I would'nt vote it cold just because I can't stand the stuff.

Great deal, dubious product.
Heat added.

What about if next to the bucket there was another bucket next to it with the same content apart from on the front there was a sticker saying 'monster marmite', yet cost £100 instead of 10p. Would you buy the monster marmite even though everything else was the same but much cheaper?

I think this makes it pretty much 'future proof'...
