Yeah any HDMI cable will fit a PS3.

That's right - any HDMI cables work with PS3s. I paid a tenner for mine, wish I'd seen this first :-(

dunno bout the quality of these but where i work we can buy them wholesale for £1.50 for 1m & £1.90 for 2m

£2.99 + £1.99 shipping.

Seems about the going rate for a value cable.

Id rather pay a little more personally though and get a quality lead.

Thanks.

Doesn't look like a great buy to me. If that's the actual picture of the cable, then its a just looks like a cheap 3th party cable.

Why would a HDMI cable fall apart? It's probable a stock photo anyway. All the HDMI connectors I have seen are the same apart from colour. This won't fall apart.

Honestly....

why do so many non-experts state this...tell that to a Telecoms/IT/Audiophile expert and youd be laughed at
do you actually know how transmission between sources works? obviously not.....0's and 1's (lol!)
oh i work in Telecoms and IT and not all digital cables are the same...alot of **** has been posted on the web about this subject
in my experience, generally cheap cables equals:-
poor quality cabling material
poor shielding
poor connectors
poor build quality - cheap cables often fall apart
i only buy decent cables (for av stuff i use Chord or QED), but i dont pay rrp - i pay £20-30 depending on length of cable instead of the rrp of £50-70 (we all know there is a big markup on these things so shop around)

Are you for real? Focus on how I said connector not lead or cable. How can the connector be different? It wouldn't be a hdmi cable then would it.

At the end of the day I'd say this was cheap rubbish and I wouldnt waste my money on it, I'd much prefer to spend a few quid more for something that looked like its been put together properly.

Can you elaborate?

Generally interested - as far as I know digital signal = 0/1's, so it either transmits the signal, or it doesn't...

Enlighten me...

afaik there are different types of hdmi connectors, each of different size and shape. so yeah they can be different.
I've tried quite a few cables over the years and I've never been able to tell the difference between them. All were under 2m, and none were using 1.3. Maybe as the protocol evolves and higher bandwidths are used the older cables will struggle, but if a cable is rated as able to cope with a certain level of hdmi, I cannot see how quality would differ between cables.
Someone earlier quoted shielding etc. but all this has to be within acceptable limits and if the data packets are being transferred ok then there will be no difference between any cable. If any cable is badly made enough to cause packet loss or corruption I doubt very much it would make it onto the shelves.
#25
I wouldn't go for anything that wasn't £30 or over. Gold connectors are best! Very pleased with my cable!
#26
Why I didn't get into the cable business I don't know. Honestly.

With digital, if it works, it works. As long as the cable is made well enough that it doesn't fall apart (never seen one that poor but I expect they exist) then it will be just fine for this length. Transmission line effects like alluded to by our friend the telecoms expert above will not make a jot of difference unless the cable is a lot longer or the data rates get a lot faster.

But feel free to ignore me if spending more money makes you feel good.

Y'know, someone with a £30+ HDMI lead should buy one of these, take photos of the difference in picture quality (if any), post them here and put this stupid argument to rest.

Edit: In fact it has already been done http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/upgrade/4235717.html

The next time someone starts recommending that people buy an expensive HDMI cable can we just start pasting this URL and leave it at that?
#28
Why would it matter if a HDMI lead has losses of 0.2dB per km, or 1dB per km, when you have a 2m run, then most of the long distance problems and associated loses are negligible. I could see spending the extra and actually noticing a difference on cables that are used in the telecoms industry, but not on something that is so short.

Elaborate please? Show me the internet pages where there have been proven blind tests showing the difference. I'm one of these people who you would call an Audiophile. My stereo is worth £4000 and I have expensive speaker cables and interconnects. But they are both analogue connections. You read magazine reviews in Hifi Choice, What Hifi and Home Cinema Choice every month talking about different digital cables and how much they help if you spend more. But they're all paid loads to do this. the whole cable industry has always been one big can of snake oil but at least with analogue cables there was some difference. But now with digital cables there's absolutely no difference between a £2 cable and a £100 cable. I do admit that I would probably choose a 1.3 HDMI compliant cable because "apparently" it has the potential to take more bandwidth. But that's only because they're the same price.

Save your money and buy it on equipment.

And another thing while I'm on my high horse. Those of you looking to buy top quality amps for music should forget about these huge (in size and cost) class A amps. Buy one of the new class D or T amps from Asia. Like a Trends Audio TA-10 or a Sonic Impact for less than £100. A bit of research will show you that they can beat Class A amps costing £5000 or more.

For those that are saying they are cheaply made and fall apart - get a life. Do you spend all day plugging it in/out.

I plugged mine in the day it came and it has stayed there since. Spend the extra money on a good TV, that will make the difference, not a cabel.

Great article flusterpie - thanks for that - might stop a few of these arguments in their tracks.........! ;-)

Trust me, if it ain't V1.3 then I wouldn't touch it especially if you're using it with ps3. OK so you're gonna need a V1.3 HDMI HD TV to fully appreciate it, but atleast this way you'll have future proof cables going forward if nothing else. I have to laugh at the fact that I've wrote Future proof, never has there been such a non-sensicle word. Remember when we were all bying LCD HDTV's and were told they were future proof, well guess what, they're all ready obsolete. If it ain't got V1.3 HDMI then it's already yesterdays news. Nothing, I repeat, nothing is future proof, it's only good in the here and now, tomorrow it's old hat.
