Good looks, spotty results
on December 20, 2010
I bought two 25' cables, and I was very impressed by the appearance. For the price, I thought the assembly may look/feel bad, but that is definitely not the case.
When I installed the first one to go between my Bravia TV and my Onkyo receiver, only Audio came through. I thought the setup was wrong. It turns out the cable was faulty. After spending a little while checking the setup, I used the other identical cable and it worked right away.
I tried again between the DirecTV box and the Onkyo receiver, and got the same results.
Overall I am satisfied: I am sure the cable that works will continue to work for a long, long time. Since Amazon offered me a refund right away, there is no loss for me.
I hope BlueRigger improves their QC, without raising the price, because the cables look and feel pretty good. In fact, I also bought a 6' one that works as expected.
