£6 for v1.4a for just 1.2 metres long is way over priced.

I agree that it's possible to get a £1 HDMI cable to do as good a job, but the cheap HDMI cables are more likely to have cheaper quality parts and more susceptible to break, snap or have issues (e.g. connectors, pins etc).

Yes, you pay more for such a HDMI cable, but generally get a more durable and reliable cable - as the saying goes, 'you get what you pay for.'

Really and truly HDMIs are barely moved around

This is true but somehow all my braided cables failed one after another because they're so stiff that you have to really force them to change direction which in turn puts pressure on one end and eventually breaks them.

Version numbers apply to HDMI devices, there's no such thing as an HDMI 1.4a cable.

Not if you need a 1.2m cable, the cheap bits won't miraculously jump the missing 20cm.

Well in that case this cable must be really worth £949 (for one metre)
(It's one of those 'directional' ones)
Must be hundreds of times better than the one here

And I don't really see why you're on this site anyway because this site is about getting better value for money which simply can't exist if you always 'get what you pay for'

This is true, although there are 'high speed certified cabling and better constructed cables.

Bit stupid that the hdmi consortium decided to not allow proper branding officially as it does make checking which cables have been certified to higher spec or say hdmi 2.0 a little trickier...

Overpriced, and as for the rrp, it is a joke, I paid half that last year for a much better quality active (amped) 15m hdmi cable with extra thick conductors.

The plugs on this cable don't appear to have any strain reliefs, so I would expect it to be prone to wire breakage where the cable enters the plugs if frequently disturbed. And as far as I'm aware betron is not exactly a premium brand, they appear to me to just be yet another Amazon/ebay trader importing generic Chinese made and designed goods with customer branding applied.
