Hdmi????

Just purchased a new Flat Screen LCD 1080p also an X-Box and a Blueray Player.......

Just want to say that I'm not completely ingnorant to electronics as far as home Audio and TV Etc.... But I'm curious to know what some of your experiences have been with your setups. This is my first major Electronics purchase IN QUITE SOME TIME! More so concerning the HD side of things. I also know that I need 2 but preferably 3 HDMI Cables and was wondering if anyone has a hook on some good deals on the cables?

I hate to buy them off line but I will if I have toO because in the stores theres OBNOXIOUSLY overpriced! Like $115 for Monster Cables..... So come on some of you Best Buy guys or somebody if you can help a brother save some $$$ Let me know, it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Yours Truly TC

Tom

Well I will say Monoprice seems to be the spot Thanks for the tip....

Now any advice on what the hell the differences are on the 100 different cables they pull up? Without Freshining up on HDMI cable Information The Descriptions are losing me a bit?

What would be similiar to the Monster Ultra 1000 cables.....
  • Delivers a bandwidth greater than 10.2 Gbps for maximum performance
  • 24K gold-plated connectors and large-gauge high-purity copper conductors enhance conductivity, resist corrosion and provide high-quality signal transfer
  • Duraflex protective jacket; precision-wound DoubleHelix construction
  • Nitrogen gas-injected dielectric for enhanced signal consistency and strength
  • High-density triple-layer shielding for superior rejection of RFI and EMI interference
  • Durable gold-plated internal shield; heavy-duty internal dual-strain relief

I'm open to being educated a bit or any constructive critisism lol

Great place with fast shipping and good low prices. NEVER spend a lot on HDMI cables. The signals sent over the cables are digital, 1's and 0's. Any wire will work, do not buy the hype of Monster or any other fancy cables that are made in zero oxygen rooms by German scientists LOL!!!!!

The in wall I take it means the wire is running from wall mount install thru wall to components? Whats the difference between those cables and regular cable???

I'm not running anything threw the wall just external install from component to component.

Is there any real difference between the "Tin" plating "Gold" plating Etc....



Just wanna say again I appreciate any thoughts and or opinions on the subject.

1.3a just means its been rated to pass everything within the HDMI 1.3a specifications, dont worry about it. 28 awg is the gauge wire the cable uses.

Alright Alright....... No I honestly don't do much shopping on line so thats why I ask. I've heard some Horror stories of what happens after certain peoples purchases and anytime I put up a CC # it's better to be safer then sorry ya dig. Thanks.

I just got my cables from Monoprice.com and I ordered a projector mount from them a few weeks ago as well.

Good people, good inexpensive products.

I just pulled a Monster 1000 from between my PS3 and 1080p projector and replaced it with a $10, 6', 24AWG Monoprice cable and I can't tell the difference. And I'm a picky bastard.

Just go with what vcook said, it's good stuff.

If you really wanted to save on HDMI cables, you would have bought a PS3. Bluray playa and game console in one.

Don't think its been mentioned, but monoprice.com has great prices on cables.

He must have wanted a functional viable system that people use for playing games instead of just an expensive BRD player .

oh and I've also used monoprice b4, you may have heard of them.

If that were the case, he'd get the game system that sells the best (which means the most players), the Wii.
