Personally nobody in this place has a clue, they all think they know best but let's be honest they're gonna get a lot of viruses unless they switch to a HDMI cable that has anti-virus technology, like this one 39938844-wDKab.jpg

Cheap. I use £100 HDMI cables that are about 3 inches thick and made from 100% pure gold. Those digital signals flow through it with ease turning my old 1020p TV into an 8k HDTV with blacker than black blacks and a huge contrast ratio.
I've been rigging my house up with a lot of HDMI cables and I can give you some advice.

For cables less than 3m it doesn't matter how expensive they are. Any recent cables will work fine. I've got 1m cables running UHD that only cost £1.

For cables over 3m if you want UHD (aka 4k) you should buy "Certified Premium High Speed HDMI" cables if you want to be sure it will work. They are expensive but you that can be sure they will work if they have the official hologram. I'm sure there are plenty of non-certified Premium High Speed cables that work fine, but it's hard to really check if they are any good unless you see a professional review.

For cables over 5m if you want 1080p you should check for good customer reviews, as I've got several 7 - 10m calbles that only work at 720. They are all "high speed" cables and so should work at 1080p but won't because they are crap. Or just buy a "Certified Premium High Speed HDMI cable" which you know will work because it's actually been tested.

There are LOTS of crap cables out there and they are all labeled as High Speed / 4k / UHD etc and so you have to be careful if you want a long cable. ,But if you want a short cable like 1 or 2 m it won't matter at all.

Local Poundshops sell 1m HDMI cables for a quid. They have high speed printed on them which means they're 4K compatible. This is a rip off for a 1m cable.

Also, the fact that its braided actually makes this cable worse. My first ever HDMI cable back in 2007 was braided and gold plated and all that crap and cost £25. I bought it for my launch PS3.

Yeah it did the job and worked fine but being braided actually made it incredibly difficult to manoeuvre around my entertainment centre. I've not purchased a braided cable since.

I wouldn't buy this personally. It's not a great deal and available cheaper for the same quality and length. Plus I really do think 2m cables should be the minimum length these days.

Is there a common cable marking or different layout of pins?

£4.15 for 2m using the available voucher (21% off). Always good to have a spare HDMI cable to hand.

Great spot.

Thanks.

Edit: Sadly, only one voucher per customer. So, you can’t receive a discount on say one 1m cable plus one 2m cable. Opted for the 2m as better value, more cable for less money. No brainer, lol!

TL;DR - All High Speed HDMI cables (v1.4, which was released in 2009, onwards) will support 4K functionality when connected to 4K devices — hdmi.org

They often have ‘High Speed’ printed on the cable sleeve (obviously not on braided ones)

HDMI cable 1.0 – 1.2 – no 4K Ultra HD support

HDMI cable 1.3: Probably no 4K support depending on the cable

HDMI cable 1.4: 4K support very likely, but not guaranteed

HDMI High Speed Cable: 4K Ultra HD support guaranteed

Interesting. Nor could I but I thought that was because I ordered the longer 2m orange coloured HDMI cable from the same seller.

£4.73 is the price I see which mentions a saving of 21% off the regular price until the end of today (limited time deal).

ah that would be why people say the xbox one original had a high speed 4k cable, but only the new one x has high speed written on the cable itself
It's a 1m digital cable! No amount of flashy crap will make it send a digital signal better. This is just a complete rip-off.
Apocc19/02/2020 07:55

£4.26 for a 1m HDMI is a good deal?


No, it's not.
Good price for a high speed and (I suspect) well made HDMI cable.

T'interwebs needs to get over itself, it is less than a fiver. I've tried those cheap "But you can get them for a quid" leads and I had to bin them. I got sparkles. Amazon Basics worked fine though. But damn! What am I to do? They were gold plated!

I've used more expensive ones for longer run permanent installations. Chased into walls etc.

I think some of the people in here that come out with the all cables are the same etc so just buy £1 ones to go to factories that produce cables you will find they are not all the same.

The big differences are the connectors and shielding.

For normal person yeah buy cheap as possible but you may find the cheap cables are not always the best fit or you could have issues with it supporting all hdmi version features due to a lot of these wouldn't of gone through a lot of testing the cheap ones are the ones that dont tend to meet the specs of say hdmi 1.4 but it may just meet 1.2 so its still sold.
but the nice young man in currys told me that I needed to spend £80 per cable to get the best 4k

“Next, we decided to compare a cheap 5m cable (£5.99) versus an expensive one (£130), as the argument is that cheap cables suffer over length. This time around we didn’t find one error on either cable. Throughout all of our testing, mathematically and scientifically, bar that one-bit error, we didn’t see any differences between expensive cables and cheap ones, proving that price doesn’t influence quality.”

That's quite funny. I like the first one, 180⁰ adjustable. Yeah, its Male to Male, it would be, perfectly designed for those 180 right angles. Things have changed since my day. I'll have to get new protractors.
HDMI cable care

Doing a bit more testing, we found that the only reason you may want to pay more for an HDMI cable is for better build quality. This isn’t because out-of-box you’ll see any difference, but because a more expensive cable will likely be more rugged and have a better-made connector. As proof, we tested a few cables that had been hanging around for a few years and had been rather mistreated and stored badly. These cables were showing signs of physical wear and, when we plugged them into our capture card with no error correction, there was an extreme number of errors in every frame. As such, this cable would no longer pass the HDMI certification, and so it is effectively broken.

Dozens of sparkling, coloured and white dots dancing across the screen showing just how badly damaged the cable was. However, even a cable in such poor repair would be hard to spot on a TV, as error correction will make those pixels impossible to spot even if they are technically wrong.

Even so, this gives us two important bits of information. First, treat your HDMI cables with care and make sure that connectors are securely plugged in and there’s nothing putting pressure on them. Secondly, if you’re buying an HDMI cable for a piece of kit that you move around a lot, such as a projector or a laptop you’re constantly unplugging and plugging back in, it will pay to buy a more rigid cable and a stronger, less flexible joint between the cable header and the wire itself.”
I get motion sickness from high-speed HDMI cables, please can I get a deal on a 'slow-speed' one?
I bought these from amazon last month. Decent quality cables. In the end, I ended up returning it an buying a cable that supports hdmi 2.1
It's the 4K @ 60fps which is important to me, this can't be done with v1.4

Their article actually agrees with my experience. They were testing at 1920x1080 on a 5m cable. I would like to see their results using a cheap 5m cable at UHD resolutions
They compared a £6 HDMI cable with a very expensive one.
You can get HDMI cables cheaper than that, especially on eBay.

It's also important to consider that if you are doing a very long HDMI cable run, are you going to be using any adapters at each end? For example an IR over HDMI adapter. Or are you going to be using an HDMI wall plate? These types of things will degrade your signal to the point where it might not work, so using a better quality cable will increase your chances of success.

But HDMI cables aren't 1.4 or 2.0 etc. The specification number is irrelevant to the cable. The cable is either High Speed or not (all new ones are) and With Ethernet or not (all new ones are). The HDMI specification does not dictate the quality of the cable. They can use any conductors or shielding they want withy any cable and they can put any number on the packaging.

Correct. HDMI 2.0 (maximum signal bandwidth of 18Gbps) onwards is required for 4K60fps (or 8K30fps)

HDMI 2.1 (48Gbps) is capable of video resolutions up to 10K and frame rates up to 120fps (8K is limited to 60fps)
