Great product, excellent price,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mediabridge FLEX Series HDMI Cable (6 Feet) - High-Speed Supports Ethernet, 3D and Audio Return [Newest Standard] (Accessory)
I purchased one of these to enable 3D functionality (HDMI 1.4 required). Since they were inexpensive and advertised as "Ultra Thin", I added two more to the order for my other connections so that I wouldn't have to worry which were 1.3 and which were 1.4. Note that this isn't the first Mediabridge product I've used. All my other cables have been the Mediabridge sleeved versions (8.5mm thick). Since I was very pleased with those, I had high hopes for these.
The cables did not disappoint. They were as thin and flexible as I expected. They have performed flawlessly for me with no apparent noise or drop-outs apparent under direct connect 480i, 1080i, and 1080p 3D sources. I don't have a receiver to use as a source switcher and since the cables are advertised support the Audio Return Channel (ARC), I'll probably use the plasma for source switching and feed the ARC out to an amp instead.
The cables came in the standard Mediabridge packaging - a small thin heavy duty cardboard box with the item name/size on the outside. I appreciate the packaging so that I can keep the spares stacked away and not have to wade through a box of tangled cables to get what I need (ESPECIALLY length). The cables were coiled inside and loosely held that shape. Running my hand down the lenght (to make it warm) got rid of most of the coil as expected. Cable connectors and molding were ideal.
I was concerned about functionality based upon the original negative 1-star review, but for the price and my prior experience with Mediabridge products I figured it was worth the risk. I'm glad I did as the cables have worked out great for me and an exception value at the price compared to other name brands.
My only complaint is that it's currently only available in 6-foot lengths. I'll be on the lookout for thier 3-foot and hopefully 10-foot versions (if they end up manufacturing them).

IS THIS A 1.4 hdmi,AND HOW DO I KNOW IF ITS 1.3 OR 1.4?TANK YOU

Yes, it is tested under the 1.4a specification. They were kind enough to show the certificate on the main product page. 3D and ARC are 1.4 features. Ehternet is a 1.4a feature. So, if they are advertising those features, you could infer that it is a 1.4/a cable, but that is an assumption unless the manufacturer specifically states it (like MediaBridge has by showing the certificate).

Mediabridge... you should get this page updated then, cause all that it shows available is 1, 6, and 10 foot. Mediabridge FLEX Series HDMI Cable (3 Feet) - High-Speed Supports Ethernet, 3D and Audio Return [Newest Standard]
I was gonna get the older version 3 ft till I saw your comment lol...... Going to need a 3 ft for my PS4.
Edit: well... I clicked on your 3 foot link and it went to the 1 foot.

The link to the 3ft cable is correctly directing to the 3ft length at this time. I'm not sure if there was some sort of Amazon system error when you were looking at the page. We only have a couple left in stock right now but we will be replenishing supply as soon as possible.

The link only goes to the 1 ft., 6 ft., and 10 ft. I am looking for the 3 ft. (Flex) but cannot locate it. Is it not currently available?
