Wait, oxygen-free copper? I'm sold.
So these aren't 4K HDMI's? Be careful folks. Not a bad price but I think a lot of users on here may just buy for their new consoles thinking it'll be fine..

High Speed Category 2 cables (which these are) should be able to handle the higher bandwidths required, but they're not guaranteed, you can run into issues with longer lengths. If you're running long lengths or hiding cables behind walls, you may want to pick up Premium High Speed cables which are certified for that purpose (the higher bandwidth not hiding behind walls).

So for this price they're worth giving a go. You should know they're up to the job if you give them a decent test.

Well that's it, although they should be able to handle higher bandwidths because of the category, it isn't guaranteed, unless you've tested it yourself and know. And yup, anything over 5m of HDMI moves into ultra high prices if you want the best quality.

I recently discovered that an Xbox One X is actually one of the cheaper ways to test for full fat 4K 4:4:4/60.

You can get Premium High Speed cables for about $15 for 15ft and $30 for 25ft from Monoprice and I know a lot of people who use them in the US, but they're lot as cheaply available over here (nothing new there). Unfortunately we still have to pay a premium for premium cables.

With HDMI, you dont need best quality. All you need is for it to work. The beauty of a digital signal.

You do if you have 4K UHD devices and plan to get the most out of them.

Nope - as long as it supports the specifications you need.

I don't really understand what you are saying.

If you want to watch ultra high definition content but your hdmi cable can only do up to 1080, then your 'specification' will be ultra hd 2160p, and it won't support it. Sure a lot of older cables can run it fine, but not all of them. I'm not saying you need the best of the best, I'm saying you need it to support the format you want your content to be at, just 'working' is definitely not always good enough.

You can disagree if you like but those are the facts. I deal with a lot of high end, less consumer AV that you are probably referring to i.e. projectors, where actually the cable makes a whole world of difference.

Your initial comment was about quality - not specification. If it meets the spec you need, then quality (and cost) dont matter as they do in the analogue world.

It was more about compatability than anything else but yes I get your point..
