I bought 3 of the Inspire HDMI cables, mainly because of the insanely cheap price and the glowing user reviews.

Once I received the cables, I connected my upconverting DVD player to the TV and, the very first time I disconnected it, the connector broke clean off the cable. Hey, it's a $2 cable, right? Luckily, 3 cables was one more than I needed, so I had an extra. I hooked up the DVD player again and it works great: no garbled data or loss of picture quality.

Next, I connected my HD cable box. This time, the structural integrity of the cable held up, but on some of the HD channels, I experienced pixel and audio drop-out. I reverted back to my previous setup of component video and optical audio and the problem went away. Thus, it's reasonable to conclude that this cable was the problem.

A success rate of 1 out of 3 with these cables does save a considerable amount of money vs. a Monster cable, but temper your expectations. A $2 cable is what you pay for, and a $2 cable is what you get.

I bought this cable sometime back. It works but I had no idea what it supports what it doesnt.

Recently I bought a PS3.
I connected using this cable to my 1080p Samsung TV.
When I select 1080p as output from PS3 it says doesnt support.
If I select 1080i it worked. Even when I played a blue Ray movie
from my PS3 it worked good. But I had no idea what was wrong when I selected 1080p from Vedio settings in my PS3.

The only problem is the TVs that support 1080p always support 1080i also
and one maynot be able to figureout whether the output is 1080p or not.
Even the frequency I guess is a problem with this cable. It doesnt seem to support higher frequencies like 60Hz/120Hz.

I suspected the cable might have a problem.
Then I bought below cable and it works perfectly good for everything.
Mediabridge - 3ft Ultra-High Speed HDMI Cable - 120 Hz - Version 1.3 Category 2 - 1080p - Blu-Ray - PS3 - W/Nylon Sleeve.

I bought this cable, hoping that it would be a reasonable substitute to the $50 cords sold in stores. Initially, the cable worked perfectly, but after around two months of normal use (it was basically untouched and stayed plugged in) it began to cut out, making it useless for high-def gaming. I guess two months for $1.09 isn't so bad though. I could buy 45 of these cables instead of a $50 cable somewhere else, and those 45 cables would last me about 7.6 years at the current rate...

Both the original and the promptly sent replacement have problems keeping contact at the plug interface with my new WD Passport. A much more expensive cord maintains contact with no problems.

I don't want to jinx a product that has a great reputation so far, because I know there are defects during production, but when I received this product it had a connector on it that was not attached properly. It was allowing the audio signal to travel through the cable, but not the video. If I moved the cable around it acted like it had a short in it allowing me to see the video when I held it in one place.

I had to go to the store and purchase another HDMI cable, and the new one worked fine letting me know the problem was the cable.

I am not going to give it 1 star due to the fact that I have not returned the cable for another one, but be aware there is a possibility for a defect, as is the case with any product. :)

Great deal however as far as cost goes.

Bought this cable thinking that for under 3 dollars it couldn't hurt, especially after seeing how many good reviews it had. When I hooked it up it seemed to work great. For about a minute... The picture constantly flickers and the sound and video will cut out for a second or two. Also randomly the picture will disappear and be replaced by wonderful rainbow static. Just as randomly it will go away and the picture will be back. It seems to me that jiggling the cable, even the slightest bit, will cause it to malfunction. The only thing I can think of is maybe the small gauge wire that it is made of is broken inside and which is causing a bad or no connection at times. It is very possible I was the unlucky one to receive a broken cable and my case is a fluke. I will say when the cable DOES work the picture and sound quality is very good and I can see why people would be raving about it for the price they are selling it for.

I would say for under 3 bucks it can't hurt to give it a try. Pick one up and see if it works for you because if it does work it is quite the steal. If not, well then you are only down a few bucks I guess.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this cable is not Category 2 certified which means it has not undergone testing to verify that it works consistently for 1080p. Because this particular cable is so short, you most likely will be able to get away with this "non high-speed" cable and pass 1080p without a problem. However, there is no guarantee. Also, Category 2 cables are rated at 340Mhz and support the "x.v Color" and "Deep color" modes that newer TV's are supporting.
[...]

I've had problems with this cable. I've seen the "red sparkle" effect on my TV while watching Blu-ray movies and I believe the source was this cable. I'm not going to return this cable because the shipping costs more than the $.92 product. For $.92, you get what you pay for.

Pay the $3-$5 and get a good cable.

The quality is great for the price, but it is hardly 6 feet long, more like 4. Very disappointed with the length.

i bought this cable because i had recently bought a new dvd player that upscales and wanted to see if it made a visual difference. now in the picture for the hdmi cable it shows gold connectors, they have a slight gold hue in the right light i guess but def not gold. silver connectors would better describe. as for picture quality it seems pretty good. I don't have another cable to compare too. So i would have to say if you have a setup on your tv using a hdmi cable that is more expensive than, try one of these if you buy a new component to hook up it was cheap and if gave picture and sound.i will update if i come across a monster cable and give a comparison.
