From the Manufacturer

1080p certified The Demands of High Definition
High Definition home entertainment delivers astonishing life-like picture and sound; from Blu-Ray discs to video games picture and sound quality has been raised to levels that standard cables cannot match:
  •  Bandwidth has increased from 2.2 Gbps to greater than 10.2 Gbps with features such as:
  • Uncompressed 1080p high definition video with up to 16 bit Deep Color
  • Eight channels of 192/24 digital audio for ultimate 7.1 surround sound, and an integrated control channel
Achieving every audio/video detail and nuance requires a fast and accurate high quality cable that can not only produce the highest quality image, but maintain that quality during the most demanding of situations requires a cable that can produce and maintain the highest quality image. Using a higher grade HDMI cable ensures that outside noise interference bends in the cable or poor connections do not interfere with the high definition experience.not all hdmi are the same

Surpassing the Demands
Monster has been manufacturing High Performance Quality cables for more than thirty years, and the ultra-high speed M1000 HD for HDMI is one of Monster's flagship cables. Monster's M1000 HD ensures everything you like to watch in high definition has maximum realism, and impact.

Get All the Bandwidth You'll Ever Need:
4Kx2K screens provide four times the resolution of 1080p TVs for dazzling displays on par with today's digital cinemas. This quadruples the need for speed and the Monster M1000HD delivers the full experience.

Reproduce All the Colors Your HDTV Can Capture
Displaying movies and photos on your HDTV in all the living color your camera and camcorder can capture calls for today's higher bandwidth cables like the M1000 HD.

The Monster HDMI Difference
While it is true that HDMI is a digital connection, not all cables are the same. Any cable used must not only pass the signal; it must maintain he signal with high-speed especially when accessing all of the advanced formats that are available from sources such as a Blu-Ray disc. Other HDMI cables do not provide protection from bends necessary for tight installation, or provide advanced manufacturing techniques and materials for proper terminations to eliminate noise. Only cables designed to eliminate noise and constructed with the highest standards to protect against installation methods will produce the highest definition audio and video.
Monster has been a leader in the HDMI connectivity from the beginning, working with HDMI LLC to educate consumers on the benefits and performance aspects of the cables. With Monster Advanced for HDMI design and construction for the highest level of HDMI performance is guaranteed, thanks to greater cable capacity for support of 12-bit, 14-bit, or even 16-bit color (Deep Color) available from advanced HD sources and displays.
Every Monster Ultra-High Speed rated cable is manufactured with 24K contacts for maximum signal transfer and ultra-low distortion at the point of connection, silver-content soldering, connecting the HDMI cable's conductors to the connector's internal connection pins lowers resistance and maximizes digital signal transfer. Additionally, Monster Advanced for HDMI cables feature a heavy-duty internal metal shell which provides full shielding of the internal conductor wiring routed inside the connector. This provides an extra defense against interference that can enter at the connector can degrade the digital signal causing a poor image or drop-outs in the audio. This provides an advantage in performance not found in other HDMI cables. Many HDMI cables only feature metal at the connection point. Inside the connector, a thin plastic shield typically separates the molded or metal connector body from the wiring inside. This type of construction allows for damage to the conductor wiring caused during installation or everyday use to needlessly expose the stream bit to noise.

These advanced design and construction features provide for the Highest Definition possible for the full entertainment experience today and into the future.

You'd be a fool to buy a monster HDMI cable.
HDMI is a digital signal - you either get the complete signal or no signal at all, there is absolutely no difference in picture and audio quality between HDMI cables.
After disconnecting my free HDMI cable with this Monster HDMI cable, there was absolutely NO difference in sound and quality.

FUD - Fear, uncertainty, doubt.

According to Wikipedia, "the term originated to describe disinformation tactics in the computer hardware industry and has since been used more broadly. FUD is a manifestation of the appeal to fear."

Still Wikipedia, quoting Eric S. Raymond: "The idea, of course, was to persuade buyers to go with safe [...] gear rather than with competitors' equipment. This implicit coercion was traditionally accomplished by promising that Good Things would happen to people who stuck with [...], but Dark Shadows loomed over the future of competitors' equipment [...]".

HDMI is all-digital for both sound and picture. As such, it either works or it doesn't and, when it doesn't work, you will know immediately. There's really nothing in-between. If a claim is made that the Monster is 'more reliable' or that it 'lasts longer', I can't see how such claim can be backed - does the hundred-dollar cable last 20 times longer than than the five-dollar cable? And, if it does, do we REALLY care that a cable supporting a standard that may be obsolete in 5 years COULD last for 100 years?

By the way, I do not challenge the claim of high quality for this cable. It appears to be well built. However, it is quality not needed and, in my view, not worth paying for. The way most of us use cables is: we plug them at the back of our electronic boxes and, if they work on 'day one' they are likely to work in the exact same fashion on day 1000 because they are not going to be subjected to any physical or thermal stress and the materials used to build them are not easily degradable. While 'quality' was important for analog cables where good quality made all the difference in the world, the digital wires either transmit the digits or they don't.

Many here have attempted, through both negative reviews and comments, to present a convincing case that Monster Cable products are a complete ripoff, essentially identical to products which cost less than $10. Phrases such as "it's digital, it either works or it doesn't" or "all HDMI cables are the same" have a factual technical basis, but are unfortunately susceptible to the FUD-based tactics of both Monster Cable shills and individuals who are completely consumed by that ultra-defensive psychological state so commonly induced by the realization one has purchased a commodity item for an obscene multiple of its actual value. So, I submit the following information concerning both HDMI itself and Monster Cable as a corporation, information which cannot be dismissed, even by a middle-aged male with a massive new television, who is no doubt considering the price of this cable both in relation to the value of said television and under the influence of a nagging desire to "be on the safe side." In other words, the perfect mark, for whom Monster Cable has devised a devious but entirely predictable sales pitch.

HDMI is simply a standardized interface for the transmission of uncompressed digital data. The standard is promulgated, licensed, and maintained by the HDMI Forum, whose website (hdmi.org) is actually quite informative but rarely referenced in the review/comment wars here. HDMI is inexpensive and flexible, well-suited to connecting consumer multimedia devices, and was expressly designed for this purpose.

Any group who manufactures an HDMI-compliant device or cable pays a fee of several thousand dollars per year and a few cents per item (around $10,000 and $.04, respectively).

Please! Please! Please! Don't be a total "Dumas" and believe the in-store Sales-Hole hyping these over-priced, do nothing extra cables!! These shameless in-store thieves know that you'll be spending some serious coin on your new flat-panel, so whats another hundred+ for some bogus cable if you think you'll be getting a better picture?? NOT!! It's common knowledge by those in-the-know, that measureable lab tests using an oscilloscope show ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE in signal, picture or audio quality between these cables and the ten buck or less generic brand cables on Amazon.com, [...] etc. This was both professionally measured as well as being demonstrated by an engineer on a recent expose' on FOX13 News in Tampa, FL. Keep in mind that all this cable has to do is transfer data only; (not high power, like a loud speaker) so any reasonably good conductor would work just fine just to transmit a data signal. So, either it works or doesn't work at all - there is NO middle ground!! Furthermore, if the cable really made that much of a difference, don't you think that the Manufacturer would either include the cable in the box or mention that in the set-up instructions?? I have tried several brands of HDMI cables, doing brand-blind tests and could never see or hear any difference of any kind!! EVER!! Don't be a total "Dumas" and fall for the BS!! I hope this clears up any myths regarding so called "high end" cables. Don't believe me??? Humor me; and try it yourself: ask the in-store Sales-Hole to let you compare an inexpensive HDMI cable and the Monster "scam" cable side-by-side, so you can see that "HUGE" differnce (NOT!) that he's telling you about. (Then, watch for the lump in his throat and listen carefully, as he craps his pants, knowing he's about to be proven WRONG!) You'll be glad you did...Read more ›
