Buy your HDMI cables here, May 5, 2010
I'm not spending $49+ at Best Buy. This cable works connecting my XBOX to my Samsung TV. Great picture all the time.
Don't buy any other cables, May 4, 2010
I bought all the cables for my home computer and theater setup from Amazon.
They work like a charm.
If you're doing all digital I can't see why you would ever spend more for "name brand" cables.
Also, the frustration free packaging deserves all the hoopla Amazon gives it.
Does exactally what it says on the tin, May 2, 2010
The cable comes in a simple box, straight out and ready for use. It has small, slim connectors and is black throughout. The quality matches that of my previous cables (I purchased this so I could move my TV further away from the xbox). Not much else to say, a great basics product from Amazon. If I need another HDMI cable, or any product that is available in Amazon Basics, I will have complete confidence in buying from them first.
Awesome and inexpensive cables, April 30, 2010
If you were to walk into a big-box retailer and buy a Blu-ray player, you'll invariably be shuffled towards the higher end ($40+ and up) cables. They don't add any value or performance. I have two of these HDMI cables, and they work like a charm. They're well built and feel sturdy.
Bottom line is that for the price, you can't go wrong. And to spend more money than is needed on these cables is just ludicrous.
