I have a bunch of these. They're great!

If you're looking for exceptional quality at a reasonable price, look no further. I have a number of these cables in a variety of lengths. Don't let the price fool you, these are not 'cheap' cables. They do everything you need an HDMI cable to do. They support 3D, 1080P, ARC, etc.
Cheap cables cause problems. I recently had DirecTV installed in my home. The installer used a cheap HDMI cable to connect the box to my Onkyo AVR. The audio return channel from my Panasonc ST50 stopped working. None of the audio being sent from the TV's apps would play through the 5.1 setup, e.g. Netflix, Amazon VOD, etc. I spent considerable time trying to find the issue. The only thing that had changed was the addition of DirecTV. So, I unplugged it and all was well. I replaced the cable with this one from BlueRigger and everything started working again.
There are places that charge many times the price of this cable for gold-plated, high-speed, blah, blah, blah. The AV guys selling them seem to make things up as they try to justify the high price. There is no reason to pay that much money.
You can buy these with confidence. They're great.
