Thanks on my mobile

Bought these a few week back and they are decent leads but this is already been posted.

Thanks for posting. I’ve added the various postage options.
Please see this thread here for further information as to why postage costs have been included. Please feel free to contribute to the discussion.


thanx

These are a good deal and good quality leads, I bought a 9metre one a while back to connect computer to tv and found it a good cable. I've just bought these too with a splitter box to bring it up to just over a tenner for free postage, thanks for posting

Hi Everyone,
These cables look great but be aware that they may be slightly short for most connections. I didn't check properly and had to use chromecast's extention hdmi to make up the length

Is there any way to tell which version (i.e. 1.4 or 2.0) a HDMI cable is? For non-braided ones, I believe since HDMI v1.3 they have something along the lines of 'High Speed HDMI Cable' printed on the rubber sleeving. Would make life so much easier if they also printed the version number too! Got stacks of them but no longer able to tell which are the older ones which don't support 3D or Ethernet.

Good cables. Even came with a keyring light!

Do you actually own a piece of hardware that can utilise the Ethernet channel through HDMI? I doubt it, but please feel free to prove me wrong.

Also, you only need a "high speed" cable for 3D. 3D is compatible with all high speed cables; the version number you're quoting is in relation to hardware only.

Excellent - just what I've been after - running multiple games consoles into my amp has used up all the inputs so these leads along with a splitter will do the job nicely!

Just found this article which explains the differences between the various different HDMI version numbers:

audioholics.com/hdt…ons

And this video on HDMI cable differences:

youtube.com/wat…MDA

Don't have any compatible equipment that needs to run ethernet over HDMI (not sure if any have been released in the domestic market?) but do have a 3D Full HD TV and shall upgrade to a 3D Blu-Ray player at some point. Guess so long as I use a 'high speed HDMI' cable, I should be fine?

Until the next upgrade to 4K...

There's no such thing as 'performance' HDMI cables.

There is no such difference in using hdmi cables from pound land versus these. Don't get mugged off!!

Why do you say that?

got these last time and they are excellent for the money, only gripe being is 1m is a bit short. Petty there is no 2m version.

Seriously? these work out at £1.66 each and includes 3 Velcro ties, a torch and a right angled HDMI adapter thrown in. They are of much higher quality than the poubdland ones also.......So it's hardly getting "Mugged off"

Good spot thanks, there were none when I ordered theses last time.

The age old debate of whether there is or there is no difference in audio/video quality between cheap or expensive HDMI cables, lol! Not what I was asking but plenty of comments cropping up, no doubt from people more than happy with their cheap as chips cables. If there is no scientific proof that indeed there is any difference between HDMI or optical/coaxial cables on the premise that they are carrying digital signals, therefore they either work or they don't, do you think there would be any market for expensive cables? Who would buy them? Surely there can only be so many gullible consumers out there?

I've seen with my own eyes the difference that analogue cables such as RGB SCART & Component can provide compared to RF and heard the difference that quality speaker cable can make on a high-end system. It can be harder to notice the difference with digital cables but in blind listening tests years ago, I'd say my ears noticed a difference between a cheap and a high quality coaxial cable.

Because HDMI cables are for digital signals and digital signals can't be enhanced. It either works or it doesn't and anybody who tries to sell you expensive "High Performance" HDMI cables is selling you snake oil.

yeah all that goes down the hdmi cable is a load of 1's and 0's so they cant pick up interference like the old analog scart leads of old, so the only difference between a cheap hdmi and an expensive one is the build quality(so it may last longer) but it wont give you a better picture over the £1 one

because it is digital. so it is either On or Off - there is no inbetween.
Its not analog where signal can very.

That's not strictly true as the HDMI standard contains no parity checking or error correction and it is only single direction so any packet losses are lost forever and not re-sent (squares/pixellation). However in short runs between devices this is rarely seen unless the cable is of extremely poor quality.
I wouldn't pay lots for an HDMI cable as as you say it's digital and packet loss is rare, however really cheap cables have poor quality plugs that can give loose connections and is quite common. I learned the hard way after plastering cheapo HDMI cables into my walls only to find a couple had dodgy plugs!

because people see expensive cables and think they must be better and believe the hype.
of course there is a difference between rf and scart but that's analog so it has to be converted then sent down the cable, then converted back once it gets to the tv, in all that conversion it picks up interference and you lose quality.
htmi cables could pick up interference also but it doesn't do anything as the tv only looks for the 1's n 0's of the digital signal to make the picture anything else is ignored

Good price, just beware they are very short.

I got these really good value for money should cost a lot more, not to be compared to poundshop cables which fall apart, plenty of added value with the extras. I would buy some more if they weren't so short, they have limited use in this respect.

Performance drop will occur depending on the length of the cable, a £100 1m cable vs a 99p 1m cable you won't notice the difference,15m however you will, longer cable means you need better quality cable with less resistance, better shielding to stop the performance dropping. Was a question I asked my engineering lecturer many years ago when monster hdmi cables were going for £80 for my new hdtv.

How big is your front room if you need a 15m cable!?

How big is your front room if you need a 15m cable!?



a hdmi cable is used in business and many places outside of a home. Personally would never need one at my house but have one at my work place. Also it depends on the bitrates you plan to run through your cable, like i said high bit rate through a long cheap cable will give bad performance( This depends on resolution, hz) unless you use active components which increases costs.

mine are all 10-15m they go from my matrix in the media cupboard to the TV's

Maybe type this into Google and educate yourself on it.

'cheap hdmi cables vs expensive'.

You will find a whole host of articles stating the FACT!

Digital or not attenuation, capacitance and cross talk still occurs. over distance this becomes more and more prevelant eventually causing data corruption.
Although I agree over the usual 1 or 2 meters it will not be an issue even on a cheap cable, but go longer and the likelihood increases.
The main difference with decent cables is the decent plugs cheap ones have poor quality connectors.

If you Google you'll find a study where someone gets digital equipment to test various HDMI cables, from cheap to Monster level. The only time the cheapest cable dropped a single bit of data was when running very high data rates (approaching the theoretical maximum of HDMI) over long distances, well above normal consumer usage.
