Advice needed on a quick question......?

Found 23rd May 2008
I've been looking around for a HDMI cable for my ps3.
Not to concerned about the price at the moment (as long as its under £25) but just want something that actually works and won't break after a few weeks.

I've heard that the longer cables are worse so not looking for a long cable, less then 2m should be fine.

Any helpful answer would be appreciated.

Thanks.

They work well with my sky HD... They say that because it's digital you either get the picture or you don't and there is nothing in between..

I bought two of these.. ebuyer.com/pro…508

I will look for a bit of info for you...

A big thread on this on avforums somewhere..

]HERE it is....

The Gadget Show on Five did a test of HDMI cables.
One was a £19.99 job and the other being a £120 cable. All the equipment they used was the same and they came to the conclusion, that both picture and sound was perfect on both set ups.

That is true, we probably won't see the benefit until the digital switchover!?!?
I cannot tell the difference.

What has the digital switchover got to do with HDMI cables?
