    Anyone here bought HDMI cables off ebay?

    I'm looking for the cheapest HDMI cable I can find and I came across this: 360199383366

    I just want to know whether using a cheap HDMI cable will hinder performance/quality. I'm planning on hooking up my HD monitor to my ATI4850 with HDMI instead of the DVI I'm using right now.

    And if anyone has bought the same product, please let me know your comments/thoughts on it.

    Thanks

    I bought a vga cable off ebay, crazy price at like £1.40 delivered

    Works fine, now using PC through tv.

    I know its not HDMI but looks fine, sometimes the cheap ones do the job, you can pick up HD cables really cheap now

    Someone somewhere posted a link for one at under 2 quid with recorded delivery. Cant remember the site though

    As long as it is a hdmi cable 1.3 it will be the same quality as any other hdmi cable.
    Also amazon.co.uk/1-8…8-1 is great.

    Nope.

    make sure its HDCP compliant.

    i have a 5m cheapo which wasnt, had to use ANYDVD HD to play back onto my TV.
    changed the cable, works without AnyDVD

    Play traders have some decent cable sellers with near ebay prices.
