PS3 HDMI Cables. Buy cheap or expensive?

Found 3rd Feb 2010
Just bought a PS3 and am linking it up to my 42" plasma TV

How much should you pay for hdmi cables? A few pounds or about £30+?

Is there any difference in picture quality for the price difference?

Cheers

HDMI is a purely digital signal. As such it makes no difference whether your cable is one pound or one hundred pounds. Cheap is absolutely fine.

cheap its a con

It doesn't matter how much you spend, it's a digital cable so you can't have a best or worst.
So spend around £1.50

SO, it seems no more than £3.00 is the order of the day.I wonder, have … SO, it seems no more than £3.00 is the order of the day.I wonder, have any of you tried your exact same set-up with a £30.00 lead to see if there is a difference?What's that you say, noooooooooooooo.So how do you know there isn't a difference.Next thing you'll be saying is "all women are the same". :w00t:I haven't tried to compare them myself 'cos I don't have a Blu ray player, but there does seem to be evidence that it does make a difference.Try going into Currys or the like and ask for a demo.Then decide for yourself.



Over long distances there can be some difference. Not in short cables though.
