Cheer's... I ordered a couple.
Bought 2 of these a few days ago. Good job I bought two, because the first one randomly stopped working after the first day.

It was working fine...didn't move the cables or even touch them. Went to turn on the PS3 the next day...and the cable had broken!

Avoid.

everyone seems to be monster fanbois because of the name.

same as apple, big brand name **** products.

you would be a fool to spend £90 on a monster cable when a £20-£30 cable will be the same speed cable.

Same speed? £20-30? Aside from durability and the quality of the actual components, there is no 'speed' difference at all, or quality difference between cables. I'd recommend spending a few quid on a cable to ensure that its actually durable enough to stand up to the job (unlike these ones), but £20 is still waaaaaay to much, but It's probably what you'd pay for a 'low-end' cable down at Currys etc. £50? Well, one company sells a 1m HDMI cable for £1000 - so I guess that would be cheap to these idiots.
Agree with the '£50 cable' guy, clearly anyone can see that the more expensive the cable the clearer the digital 1s and 0s will be... guy in Comet told me so and they are a massive, successful national brand.

...what, they went bust??? Oh well bargain 85p hdmi cable it is
Which version of HDMI?
too many trolls on HUKD these days!

good deal!! & HOT
An HDMI cable is nothing more than 2 connectors attached to each other by a number of electrical wires. Cost pennies to manufacture, cost in a sensible profit margin, and you have there true valve. A £90 cable is marketing hype and a very large profit.

Aren't the "Monster" cables the only good ones on the market? (_;)

Cold. Everyone knows these need to be diamond encrusted in order to obtain the best possible clarity when viewing standard definition VHS streams.

Ha ha, so the choices are a dirt-cheap, poorly made Piece-O-Sh... OR a way overpriced one from ONE make only? Ever heard of the middle ground? Looking on Amazon, there are a few reasonable-looking choices for 2m or 3m coming in at under £4 - the BlueRigger ones look good (decently put together and get good reviews across the board)
1m = £2.80, 3m = £3.50, though the middle length of 1.8m is OOS from Amazon, there's only ONE rip-off 3rd party seller, however there is a MICRO HDMI to HDMI 1.8m @ £4!):

For half decent build quality and low prices, then you won't go wrong with Belkin ones.

Yes my post is true, and the evidence was provided beyond any reasonable doubt during that war!!! and I guess I was trying to start World War 3 with the post.
More expensive doesn't mean better!!! I bought my HDMI cables for 2p each (yes actually 2p) about 4 years back and they work perfectly to this day. If you say a "Monster" cable costs £90 then I would expect it to be 4500 times better quality than mine... although I doubt it will be!

Anyway why would you pay £90 for a brand just to tie it up behind your TV that no one ever gets to see?

Except I haven't.

That above was what my original, very first post in this thread looked like, word-for-word. It was sent from my mobile, which I then later EDITED (on a desktop) to become the well-polished, useful and smart post you see before you on page 1.
I then DID NOT POST IN THIS THREAD AGAIN UNTIL THIS VERY REPLY.

Why and HOW THE F this has happened, you'll have to work it out the HUKD web mechanics. Something odd is definitely afoot.

But thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt, you and the donkeykong who liked your comment.

Bought one of these and they work perfectly, I can now connect my laptop to my TV. And so cheap! Thanks
