Good if you can't get to a pound shop.

Good price........

The pound shop ones are 1 metre and very low quality thin cables
This is a 1.4a version

Cold it's not 2.0

Freezing

HDMI cables only come in standard speed or high speed, pound shop ones are high speed so will work just as good as any other.

Where is the best place to get 2.0 3 metre cables?
Amazon is £5.50. needs to go behind wall for wall mounted TV.

Cheap if you just need a basic connection BUT

Doesn't support 60fps so no good for gaming or some 4K tv/films. 8 bit colour limit. Wont work with Atmos.

You want 2.0 or preferably 2.0b for all the latest stuff to work properly.

Are these actual gold or gold plated? Interested in scrap value.

Thanks

Cheers mate. Got a magazine from them the other day. Wall mounts for TVs are a fraction of the cost there than at other retailers. Are they all 2.0 as it doesn't say? Will be running 4k stuff through them

2.0 and/or 2.0b are the connector specifications not the cables, there aren't 2.0 or 2.0b cables, just standard-speed, high-speed and premium high-speed (which are certifies). These cables are available with/without Ethernet. There's also a 48G cable.

It's in the HDMI standard, some devices can utilise the data channel although most don't.

how many days for shipping?

Just got a ps Pro, presumably the hdmi cable that comes with it can transmit 4k fine?

oh thanks for clarifying. Genuinely puzzled me

Yes, the supplied cable will work fine. In fact pretty much any HDMI cable under say 3M-4M in length will do 4K without issue. For the vast majority of people all you need is a cable from a reputable source marked as "High Speed". Cables marked "with Ethernet" can be used or avoided as you wish; having it doesn't impact the cable but very very few devices make use of it so don't pay extra for it.

There is no point buying cables certified to higher standards just to future proof yourself because any device that requires such cables will come with them. The PS4 Pro and XBox One X come with great quality HDMI cables as an example that can do 4K @ 60Hz with HDR all day long. No reputable company is going to ship a device with a HDMI cable that won't enable the device to do everything its advertised to do. Especially when cables are such a small expense the grand scheme of things.

It should also be pointed out that HDMI cables either work or don't, there is no quality loss or anything due to the resolution etc. All these expensive HDMI cables you see for silly money are essentially snake oil marketing and can be avoided.

Also all this 1.4a / 2.0 / 2.0a, 2.1 version stuff being mentioned on cables forsale is complete non-sense. Those numbers are the HDMI standards and have nothing to do with the cables. HDMI cables are simply bits of "dumb" wire that carry the signal from one connector to another.

HDMI cables work a lot like network cables, they are certified for a standard and are backwards compatible. What that means in practice however is that many of the shorter lower standard cables will work the same as the higher standard cables. At lot like how Cat 5 was never certified for Gigabit Ethernet but under a certain length will do it anyways.

I could go on and on but there are countless articles from great websites that explain it better than I could here.
