How many 'connectors' are there inside you TV and PS3? It will be almost 100% hard wired so no need for anything to be plated.

I gold-plated my printer cables, now my photos look so much sharper and more colourful.

Good price. I picked one up a few weeks ago. It was the last at my store or I would have got a couple of spares.

Well there's at least one on each or the cable would be useless.....

Went there the other day, cheapest one they had was 14.99! (and was out of stock too)

Is this in all Tesco's ?

:thumbsup::giggle:

mine are nasa developed kryptonite coated that can withstand heat of upto 1000degrees and are rabbit chew through proof. Not bad for £10,233.03. Was posted on here 3 weeks ago. Quidco too.



Nice deal btw

CAn anyone confirm this is a one off?

Seems like its getting lots of heat for no reason

yes i guess they must be in all store just give them a ring i guess

Has anyone actually seen these in any other Tesco stores before voting hot?

I have a feeling this is store specific. Called my local Tesco Extra and they don't have them, sounds like they don't stock them at all.

my mate told me he gold plated his wife.....but he still gets plenty of interference!

(boom boom!)

Gold plated jump leads make you car warmer inside after use as they pre heat the bodywork.

Comments like this really are irrelevent in a lot of instances.

After recently having to take apart my Philips LCD TV to repair (faulty LVDS cable..not through corrosion, a break in the shielding wire) upon troubleshooting it, it became quite apparant that the female connectors on the AV board are only nickel plated themselves.

Now really the only advantage gold plated connectors have is their anti corrosive properties, but thats on gold to gold. But has anyone using nickel plated HDMI leads to nickel or gold plated connectors actually had corrosion?! I somehow doubt it.!

Which leads me to another thing I found about my TV, the side mounted USB slot has an extension wire bridge running inside the TV cabinet to a processing board which is connected nickel to nickel.

If nickel to nickel connections inside TVs are good enough for manufacturers to not worry about corrosion, I am sure they are equally as good outside.

This offer has been going on for ages and ages because they are discontinued stock. You'll be lucky to find one. I tried South Wales and nowhere seemed to have them, this was about 4 months ago?

I really don't think it matters for normal consumer devices what they are plated or not plated with, but to respond to your point about internal/external. External sockets are much more exposed to all sorts of environmental factors (air moisture, pets, the greasy fingers of the owner) than internal components which is why lower grade connections will suffice. Its all pointless in the use for 3 years then throw away world we live in because the manufacturers don't expect people to own things (let alone for them to work) for more than about 3-5 years max! Gold plating things can improve performance but its more about getting the word GOLD on the front of the packaging to make people think 'OOOOOoooo Gold. Shiny, I wants'.

almost got one from tesco for £3... i thought THAT was a good deal
thanks

people keep rubbish for 3-5 years....i like other av fanatics keep decent quality stuff for >10 years....i had a seperates hfi system for 22 years....which is still better than any midi hifi built today.......buy cheap stuff and you have to throw it away after 3 years as its garbage quality...if you buy decent quality stuff you dont have to throe it away after 3 years!
the people who laugh about this have prob bought the vaginatech tv's from asda...so using string rather than hdmi cables will be fine as the quality is so awful you wont notice the difference

My TV is 10 years old any some of my Hifi is 20 years old and should last another 20-50.

When was the last time you had any corrosion on your cables? My Atari is knocking on for 20 years old, with no careful storage and there are no problems with any cables/connectors, no gold in sight. Various other kit from the era is also fine. It's only likely to be an issue where they are getting damp, which your AV equipment shouldn't (And even then, it is surprisingly hardy!).

Not in Derby just been.

No it won't. Different boards inside consumer electronics are always joined with removable connectors as you will find if you care to dismantle something.

And you'd better learn a lot about the subject before you make a rather major fool of yourself by attacking others so vehemently when you yourself appear to be displaying a classic case of "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing", presumably because you have fallen for the pseudo-science peddled by overpriced cable vendors.

As someone else has said, connectors simply don't require this sort of protection in a domestic environment. Just because corrosion can theoretically occur doesn't mean it will. Besides which, "gold plating" can be so thin that it rubs off the first time the connector is used - it is simply marketing drivel.

Take a look at professional connectors such as, for instance, XLRs, which are relied upon to carry very low-level microphone signals, or Speakons, which carry very high power speaker signals. Neither of them has traditionally been gold plated; if you find any that are, it will simply be for the marketing reasons mentioned above.

Oh, and the cables aren't "oxygen free" for anything other than marketing reasons either.

PS If connectors did "weld" together, they'd make rather good contact!

same here, tv i have is 9 years old, and i also have a sony LISSA sound system that is nearly 8 years and still looks like something thet i may have bought this year.

oh and if anyone can really tell the difference on the screen between a nickel and gold plated cable i will worship you!

fantastic price for the piece1 of kit, and also the brand name too makes it an even better deal in the commerce world, good find

Any chance we can avoid the highly predictable nickel/goldplated argument and establish whether this is a hot deal - i.e. widely available at tesco's nationwide?

I think this was posted months ago on here, so went to look for it at my local months ago, and as expected none to be seen, so it must have been on clearance/end of line stock, store specific, and OP got lucky at his local.

I'll reserve judgement till anybody else says they actually found some and from where would be a help

hot if anybody could find one it would go great with the £50 Blueray player :whistling:

same for me, Tried Tesco St Rollox (Springburn) last week and they had no decent value cables so I bought one off ebay for £1.50 or so gold plated.

This is a good deal if you can get it.

Let's hope not as there are still people out who have not yet purchased their first HDMI cable.....and who if they follow a HDMI cable thread to the end will end up knowing whether Cheap is Best or Expensive is Absolutely Neccessay. The dust up that usually follows should give the necessary info to make a good choice....... :thumbsup::thumbsup:



BTW a HOT DEAL If you can find it !

i got 2 of these the week before xmas from tesco in hartlepool, looks like it has been tation wide however they are likely like hens teeth!
