    My truth:

    1992-1994 I made a killing on selling these things at Best Buy... oh the days of commission at BestBuy.

    Re: Monster Cable

    That's why I don't listen to Best Buy employees.

    actually, since they went to non-commission, the staff became less aware of the products. For a commission sales guy, when buying the main product, you had the most knowledgeable person selling you your equipment.

    It was a career for many.. now the job is just a job.

    -keep.

    I'll agree that the staff doesn't know much about the products. ;)

    But they do push monster cables, among other things. It's not just Best Buy. People should not go into an electronics store without knowing exactly what they need and doing research beforehand.

    I can second this, but without commission as Best Buy is no longer on commission.

    I just bought a 15 dollar HDMI cable with awesome sheilding from Japan on ebay a few months ago. I don't think I've seen an HDMI cable for $15 anywhere that is near the quality.

    I also bought a monster surge protector when I worked at BB. It had an antenna port that is suppose to make the images, or signal more clean. Lets just say I don't plug my antenna into it.

    Reminds me of the whole monster cable vs coat hanger deathmatch. The coat hanger won.

    HDMI cable quality is irrelevant for short cables.

    Anything over 15 feet it might make a difference, but so long as it can carry a digital signal, it doesn't matter.

    It's like USB or Firewire cables in that regard. You don't get better data transfer speeds from more expensive USB cables...
