Looked at other products for price, stayed at this one for the pretty.

Look folks, as anyone here can tell you, an HDMI cable either works or it doesn't work, as it sends a digital signal (traditionally a large voltage bump for 1, a small bump for 0). If you don't know what you're doing and just need an HDMI cable, go find the cheapest one (unless the cable needs to be more than 10 ft long. Get the second least expensive one, then, to save heartache). If you don't know what the version numbers mean, you probably don't have to worry about them. But if you're interested:
1.3 introduced a deeper color pallete than before (if you have a TV or other device that doesn't use the standard RGB color space, you would be interested) and allowed for new certain audio streams for decoding by a receiver.
1.4 introduced up to a 4k resolution, ethernet through HDMI (up to 100Mbps), and 3D video
1.4a allowed for more 3D video resolution options
1.4b allowed for 1080p at 120Hz (important for 1080p 3D TVs)
That said, these cables were really pretty and I figured that if splurging meant spending just under $10 for an HDMI cable that was really gorgeous I wouldn't mind splurging here. The cables work perfectly, just as I'd expect.
