wow they are expensive - whats the difference between these and the cheap
£10 ones off ebay?

All down to how much you want to spend I guess. QED make very good quality cables, but then ebuyer have some (2m for £5) and there is GC if you can make the basket £30...

ebuyer.com/UK/…DMI

Better still SVP have some, though again it seems only 1.8m and 2m
svp.co.uk/pro…407 @ £6.49 looks good

If you're crafty you can get 3 of these, 50 blank DVDs and £2 worth of other stuff for £21 delivered!

:? you asked for decent ones! i just quoted some semi-decent ones!!

much apprechiated!!! is there a difference you can see when watching the tv with the cheaper ones?

no noticable difference between £10 cable and £70 cable, but i've done all all cabling in-wall and don't want to take any risk.

If you want to run longer lengths of cable (hdmi/dvi) it would be better to go for quality ones!

Cheers Suniil, I Know It May Sound Silly But Whats Dvi?, When You Say Longer Lengths, It That Like A 3 - 4 Metre?

3-4 meters should be okay with cheap cables. it's worth to note that end pins, sockets, soldering etc makes cable expensive, hence don't go for cheapest stuff. make sure the cable has good sleeves, plugs etc.

similar the case with DVI as well (generally used for PC outputs). If you plan to stream movies from your computer to TV you have to use DVI, but i doubt you have DVI input on your TV, if that's the case you may need a DVI - HDMI adapter/converter (£9ish).

Sorry I didn't see what length they were but Asda had Philips ones reduced to £6 each in the clearance section of our store this morning. Were in the usual blister pack, possibly may have been only 2m though.
