As I see so many times myself! please be gentle as this is my first post.

I saw these yesterday in Comet for £99.99 which drove me to look for cheaper online when I returned home.

Glad I did!! This is an amazing saving and everyone should invest. I have purchased 3 of these for the blu ray, ps3 and SkyHD. You will not believe the difference they make to the quality of your HD viewing!

"You will not believe the difference they make to the quality of your HD viewing!" = correct 100%, I won't.

Nor will 99.99% of people
eg http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/upgrade/4235717.html

As long as YOU believe you got a bargain that's fine though - otherwise wasting HUKD time as there will be dozens of postings like mine!

go easy people, some people dont know.

comet and other retailers, should be reprimanded for what they sell some of these cables for, espescially the hdmi cables.

basically save yourself £16.99 and get one from the pound shop, they will be just as good over short distances, dont listen to any of these visual *****s who tell you different.

over a short distance, real world viewing on a cheap low quality hdmi cable will be exactly the same as on a top of the range one. FACT.

many people will spout about how its its proven that better quality cables, give better quality dignal..................yes, this may be the czse, but where talking about signal, not picture quality, it all gets decoded into the same ones and zero`s at the end of the day, that whay over short distances (1 - 5 meters) any old hdmi will do.

looking at it on an ociloscope and looking at it on a tv are very different.


dont belive the hype!!!


im sorry i had to vote cold, if you want a monster hdmi @ £100 then this is a bargain, but to everyone else it isnt, no offence though and good find.

If you BELIEVE you are getting good value then you haven't lost anything by sharing your "HUKD".

Otherwise if you've now seen the light, realise that 7Dayshop are a long standing & reputable outfit and despite their being C.Island based and hence outside UK law (so not required to do so) you may still be in time to cancel the order before despatch anyway (Though I think understandably they make this very hard to do?)
BUT anyway you should be able to return the items (in new/condition received) PROVIDED you take the hit of paying for the return postage. (Do remember to get certificates of posting at the Post Office, and send as more than one package as 100 x 1st Class = maximum PO compensation for loss/damage).

BTW: Even CNet say THEY use inexpensive HDMI cables in their review rooms (ie where connections are being made/unmade repeatedly, not just once every year or so!)

And don't worry, you're not alone - there's plenty of people who have been duped into a £10-£20 for a 6' USB cable from the con-merchants too, whereas a 99p one produces the SAME PRINTOUT on anyone's printer, or the SAME BACKUP on anyone's USB drive; or indeed conned into paying £5-£20 for exactly the SAME branded Ethernet cable which is sold for £0.30-£3.00 IF you know where to shop. Cables/stands/brackets etc are where retailers make a very healthy markup while consumers increasingly price-compare the big-ticket items!

This cable is a waste of money and has been proven to be unable to improve your signal. Cold.
#10
I doubt the circuit board soldering in PS3, TV or SKY HD are gold plated.
So I don't think an expensive gold plated cable will be any different to a normal HDMI cable.
Not voted cold as it already is cold...

No cable in the history of cables has ever improved a signal. Not to get into this (again) but HDMI transmit electronic signals and are still susceptible to degradation, not in the same way as other analogue signals, but it can still happen.

Note the use of the word CAN not WILL.

respect to OP - only a member since December and a baptism of fire ensued.

Hang in there mate, as D:Ream once said, things can only get better.

Shame you didn't get a warmer welcome (no pun intended).

Got two 1 metre hdmi cable from poundland other day and they had a good amount in stock, St johns, Liverpool city centre:thumbsup:

bought a 5m hdmi cable made pretty well from ebuyer for a fiver, basically as long as it's not going to fall apart and it's made to specification then it makes no difference - it's digital, innit??

CHEEPSTUFFRULES!

I think we are singing from the same sheet, but degrading a sheilded PCM digital signal used in HDMI would require a 100% signal loss to affect the data. Ie: you need to snip the cable in two or blast it with EM radiation to affect the signal.

what about interference from other poorly shielded cables/devices/power cords... the transmitted signal might not degrade, but the introduction of additional noise on the line from external sources can be a problem, as can magnetically unshielded things like subwoofers.

So the question with these aftermarket cables should be, can they protect the signal better than generic cheap cables, not, can they improve the signal. I think we can all admit to running cables of all types together to make the install look tidy, where common sense tells us to keep the mains cables away from the others, so in the end, we are usually to blame for signal interference.

I will usually prefer to get a good build quality cable, i guess i come form the old school of thinking here, but, i would not spend the type of money the retail stores are asking for digital cables... screw that !

they also have the M2000HD for the same price if anyone's interested !

it is true that a really crappy cable could suffer from signal degradation especially as cheap cables use less metal in their shielding. However, few consumers swap their cables around all that much. Even so, HDMI is a balanced digital serial signal and there are few interference sources in the average home that will make a difference to a cable a few metres in length.

you might do better using bent coat-hangers.. seriously! :whistling:
