You do realise that HDMI is a digital format, right?

If you don't, might I suggest a fantastic HDMI cable I think you'd love....

Oh dear.....
I have a few £90 cables... but they're analogue. £90 for a 1m HDMI? *shakes his head*

With Ethernet? I don't get it. Can someone enlighten me on what you would use this for?

Hopefully, this is an ironic posting to see who takes the bait?

Still confused. Is the TV supposed to receive a network connection through this? From where?
Or send information to the network? To where?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we have our first loser!

The combined ethernet thing is something to do with 3d I think

What you don't understand is that HDMI is a digital cable; either it works or it doesn't. The only time higher end cable matters is when you are running several yards+ of cable, like from one floor to another or throughout an office building. This is because of the increased possibility of electrical interference; the thicker, more insulated cable will help this. Even in this case it's still either it works or not. There is no "it looks better". The few feet from a DVD player to your television has pretty much 0 interference. The only real time "cheap" HDMI cable may be "bad" is if it was so poorly made, the actual connector isn't the right size and becomes loose and falls out, but I have never seen this happen.

Basically if anyone tells you expensive HDMI cable is "better" for home use, they are making more money/commission by selling you expensive cable or they do not know what they are talking about. Period.

This is true. If you took a record needle to the underside of a Blu-Ray disc, you can hear faint scratching noises that cheap cables amplify. People should try it and you'll see what I mean.

Ethernet over HDMI just means the cable is capable of transmitting ethernet data (networking) over the HDMI between devices supporting it. This means no need for an additional cat 5 network cable.

Useful if you have the kit that does it but worthless (like this cable) if ya kit doesn't.

This is yet another "OMFG it's awesome" HDMI deal that's so cold it should come delivered in liquid nitrogen!

HDMI, as people have said, is a digital cable system. As a result as long as the 1's and 0's get from end to end then a £1 cable will work just as well as a £80 one. Blacks will be as black as an £80 cable and nothing will be fuzzy cos digital doesn't work like that.

As long as the HDMI cable supports the version of HDMI that you need and you don't need a humoungus length of cable then a cheap cable will work great.

Companies make a killing on this kinda crap.

Just like the gold plated optical cables.... I mean come on! Light doesn't need a conductor so making the ends gold makes bob all difference apart from to convince Jonny Noidea that it's a better cable.

Incidentally I had a mate that bought a 1m HDMI Monster Cable for £80... Didn't have the heart to tell him he got ripped... BAD!

Original Poster

Yes it was an ironic post, as someone says it either works or doesnt get a cheap £3 one instead. Sorry if this confused anyone

I once witnessed a training session in Currys where the manager was instructing the spotty techno clueless sales assistant how to do the hard sell to little old ladies on these overpriced cables.... Shameful robbing barstewards!!
