    Lidl do a very cheap one ebuyer.com again have a cheap cable. My choice is scan.co.uk who have one for about £7 which is excellent quality, and there is a trick for free delivery from Scan that you can find by searching around on here

    Wilkinsons do one for £4.99 ebuyer is cheaper but more once you pay postage.
    Morrisons do one for £9.99 and you get a optical cable too, its for the PS3 but will work with anything,

    I would only ever buy one that is v1.3a compliant. I am not sure if this is a marketing gimic but lesser revisions do not support all the features of the v1.3 spec (high bandwidth)

    Which is great for 1080p, but unless you've got a 1080p screen that particular weak link isnt really relevant.

    Thanks guys some of these are brilliant. I think i originally bought one for £90 puts it into perspective how good it is to look around before you buy!

    v1.0 does not carry audio, although it has enough bandwidth for a full 1080p signal. I would call that a very relevant weak link!! Also there is other functionality which is too tediously technical to go into detail about.

    Please take care to give factually correct advice:

    Picked up one from Zavvi the other day for £5 and HMV are also doing the same HDMI lead but they want £10 for it. Not tried the cable yet as not ordered my PS3

    If you can find any V1.0 leads around these days I would be very surprised and I believe that ALL hdmi leads carry audio (over the alternative DVI connection) although originally that was only 2channel. I stand by the fact that unless you have a 1080p screen, you are unlikely to see any difference between a v1.2 and v1.3 cables.
