How much will they fetch in cash for gold?

Well, this one has a RRP of £20. So it must of of good quality !

Some people only want 1m compared to 1.8.

Though, not really sure why we bother with HDMI deals cos you can find any cable for pennies on Amazon or a well known auction site at any time of the day.

thanks - ordered

I bought a 1m non gold from poundland and it gives the same picture imho as a £20 1.5m by pannasonic I got from argos. The old analogue scart cables yes expensive, as hdmi is digital the cheaper cables do the same job as the expensive and I am happy with my 1 pound cable.

People need to learn not to feed the trolls otherwise every so single HDMI thread will turn into a free-for-all!! GAWD!

I actually share the same point of view - a while ago I did a test on my PS3 where I bought a £15 HDMI gold cable from ScrewFix and compared it with a Tesco HDMI gold for around £5. Absolutely no difference.

been waiting for one of these as im not sure wether ill get cables with skyHD

with hdmi you ether get signal or not , there is no difference in quality of signal since its transmited digitaly, so no matter what you buy you will always get the same quality picture, the only difference is buid quality of the cable.

If you want quality then i would recommend you visit audiovisualonline.co.uk. They are even on Amazon.

cheapest i c it is @ 1.49

got one the other day for 99p will see if i can find the item no.

Surely you can still lose the odd 0 or 1 with a bad digital HDMI cable.

Sometimes I get a bad signal on sky when we have bad weather, but I don't lose the picture altogether! And that's digital!

You do get what you pay for.

its all to do with interferance maybe??
crap cable with lots of interferance migth lose a few 0 or1s ?
good quality with better shielding might not?
but if noth in same perfect enviroment then i imagine both be 99% identical

A £20 cable is the same quality as a £1 cable, it just has a bigger mark-up

Edited by: "whatsThePoint" 9th May 2011

Jesus Christ, *facepalm* It is digital. There is no argument, they all give EXACTLY the same picture. You cannot lose 'the odd 1 or 0'. Did any of you lot go to school? Get the cheapest one possible.

A it would cost me more to get than 5p to get into town and go to poundland - i vote hot.

Banned

If they sell this for a pound how much does it cost them? 5p

It's amazing to think that a 5p hdmi cable will give the same quality of video and sound as a £50 QED cable. However over 1m there shouldnt really be any discernible difference. I usually get my cables from here, but they're £5 a pop, and I was naive enough to believe in their 5/5 stars from some magazine...

What about bit errors?
What about speed of data transfer?
Length of data transfer?
Cable equalizers?

It really isn't as clear cut as a £1 cable is as good as a £50+ cable!

It's just that most people jump on bandwagon when they see a thread about HDMI cables because they've seen other people post about cheap cables being as good as the more expensive.

What rubbish. I bought a perfectly good one for £1.75 from Play.Com DELIVERED, and the signal is excellent - seems some people think quality always equates to inflated prices.

Economics children now pay attention:
A manufacturer produces a product (say a 1mtr HDMI cable) It manufactures 10,000 of these. It costs them 30p each they then sell on at a profit to retailers. The retailers buy these at differing prices, depending on the amount they buy.
Joe Bloggs independent TV buys 2 @ £5.00 and sells them for £37.50
Tesco's buy 3000 @ £3.50 and sells them for £10.00 each.
Other buyers fare differently but still sell the product.
After a period of time the manufacturer has made a good profit as has most of the retailers ( Joe Bloggs independent TV sold none because only a J. Arthur would pay his prices). Now listen! The manufacturer has 1000 of theses cables unsold.They are taking up space which costs money, so they push them out to companies like Amazon at cost, 30p each. They are then retailed at 99p.
This applies to all types of products not just HDMI cables.
Next week we'll be learning about repackaging and how to re-invent a stagnant product.

"you get what you pay for" is an uneducated statement, or commonly known in the trade as 'boll-ox'.

Thank you (I also do impressions)

your logical thinking is messed up. these days it works more along the lines of:

taking a product to china. telling them you want xx units of the item. they will tell you how much it will cost. they will give you multiple prices which vary on the quality. you then buy them and get them shipped to the uk or whereever and sell them on for profit.

manufacturers no longer call the shots. its the buyers who are in control. you can get the same cable in differing qualities but if you are only willing to pay 30p for a cable then thats the difference in quality with say one that costs 50-90p to make.

All irrelevent for a 1M cable, really.

It makes a difference for longer HDMI cables i.e. 5-10M+ is where you may start to see bit errors,
even then it's not a picture quality issue - it generally gets "sparklies" and blanks out.

You just need to buy what you can afford, it's simple really.

Get the best you can at a decent price, but don't come bragging saying you £1 cable is better than a £50 cable because even if it was, then the people who can afford the more expensive cable wouldn't admit it anyway.

It's like buying a fiesta rather than a porsche, they still get you there, and probably in a similar amount of time, based on speed limits, traffic etc, but some people would prefer the more expensive car, it's the same with everything in life, tv's, kitchens, phones, computers, wives etc etc

OMG!!! Do you people not get it???? ALL Cables are the same - Only difference is brand and marketting. A gold HDMI is a gold HDMI whoever you get it from. Just Google it, there's nothing to discuss.

The people that buy expensive cables, also pay for their Anti-virus! Coz that's got to be better than the free one hasn't it??? - LOL
