Found 23rd Jul 2013
Just a reminder as I saw this over a month ago now on here, these are branded cables that carry HDMI and Ethernet - ideal for future proofing your AV setup.

Just arrived at my local in Nuneaton and weren't available when last posted on here, so may be worth a check!

This is what I find. Different areas have the items at different times so a reminder is always worthy

There is two for 89p that ship from the UK. I however noticed they do not have ethernet so removed my post before you posted.

And wow , what a risk 89p cant risk buying from someone without a review for 89p. You must live in a bubble.

Didn't even know such a thing existed. Turn your back on technology and you're scrambling up a hill to catch up again. Voted hot for bringing it to my attention.

I assume these are the v1.4 HDMI cables so also have Audio Return Channel

Voted cold. The picture will be terrible on this compared to a decent £90 hdmi cable!

The more expensive the cable the better the picture! Ignore all the idiots who say its a digital signal so it doesn't matter, it does! Cheap cables are only limited to passing digital 1's and zeros. Expensive ones can pass the 3's and 4's needed for 3D.

LOL I use HDMI 1.4 cables that I got off of Amazon from the UK for under £2. 3D works perfectly fine and never had problems with the picture quality or interference using the cables. I would never be a sucker and pay more for a HDMI cable.

Preacher is clearly trolling and knows it. Unfortunately people reading will take the comments at face value and believe it. They're totally untrue.

It either works or it doesn't .. it's not giving you give you rounder 0's or straighter ones - accepted the better cables are marginally better .. not that you will notice

LMAO!

First... the cheap cables are usualy up to 75 MHz and the expensive ones are up to 340 MHz so there is some sense in buying the little more expensive cable if you have really expensive equipment at home, but you'll personally not see the difference even if you really try!
Second... could you PLEASE explain the "Expensive ones can pass the 3's and 4's" part? Maybe I've misunderstood but since when digital signal have those? :-D

Wow. Someone really took the PC World sales spiel to heart!

Why would I want a hdmi cable to carry ethernet signal?

Voted hot, great price!

Its amazing that some people cant pick up irony or sarcasm, even when its totally obvious.

Do any products actually make use of the internet over HDMI feature or is it still theoretical marketing hype?

Genuinely depressing to see how many people replied to preacher as though he was being serious.

Yep, basically an AV receiver can accept the internet connection via Ethernet, and then if shared accross to Smart TV, Sky Box , Blu Ray players etc, each individual unit won't require its own connection as it can take it through the HDMI cables direct from the AV receiver.

Means less wires in the long run if you have a lot of these things - wouldn't be surprised if Consoles couldn't use this - wired is usually a better connection that wireless

That is how it works in theory but has anyone actually got this up and running with their devices?

Genuinely interested as opposed to trying to put anyone down as I've not found much info with this up and running anywhere.

For 99p worth a try, but I had some others at this price where all the contacts had gone green and oxidised to the point where they had turned to green powder.

Can't comment on these particular cables but for years I have believed that a HDMI cable is a HDMI cable so no point spending more on them but recently got a 3 into 1 automatic switcher box and the cables from the local poundshop didn't like it, there was a constant popping sound from surround sound and interference on the picture, when plugged straight in without the switcher the £1 cables were fine. Contacted the seller in the belief that the switcher was faulty but they suggested better cables and low and behold with cables costing about £8 it now works like a charm.

So it turns out, much to my surprise and previous experience, that slightly the more expensive cables do seem to make a difference albeit only when using a switcher box. And even then we're still talking sub-£10 vs £1 cables and definitely not the silly prices charged in PC World etc!

how much is it

I think the point is thought that if they work then a 99p cable and a £100 cable are gonna give the exact same picture/sound. I would agree though that if you need a long run or are going through switchers/splitters and run into problems with the cheapest quality cable it's worth trying a slightly better one. Better cables can be less fussy but if a 99p cable is working with no problems then no amount of cash spent on a better one is gonna make a difference.
