    HDMI cable

    I have purchased speaker wire, speaker brackets, and wall mount bracket all off of Monoprice due to those of you on here. I would like someone to point me in the right direction for a specific kind of HDMI cable to purchase off that site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Just buy the cheapest one in the shortest length you need.

    I just read an article in Popular Mechanics that said exactly that. They tested high dollar cables against the cheap ones and saw no diiference at all. Digital signals can't tell the differnce.

    Re: HDMI cable

    As long as you don't buy them for a fortune at best buy you'll be fine. Any cheap cable you can find on newegg, slickdeals, or whatever that website you said would be fine.

    Re: HDMI cable

    I bought mine from cablemart or something like that....a store suggested from an earlier thread. Monoprice was out of stock, 2 HDMI cable for 22 bucks very nice. I this is another reason I love this website, without it I more than likely would have been grabbing my ankles at bestbuy/walmart.

    Thanks to everyone.

    I've had luck with everything I've bought from monoprice which includes HDMI cables, component cables, and speaker wire.
