Ordered 2, one was a dud, one wasn't, no response from seller,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Link Depot HDMI to HDMI Cable 25 feet (Electronics)
I ordered the second cable before I unpacked the first, in whose sheath there were some small punctures. Fortunately, the second cable was free of damage and works fine. (The first cable transmits the signal but little white dots of noise show up in the otherwise good picture.) I contacted the seller about the damaged cable in the first order and got no response, which is why I have to give 2 stars. The one cable that wasn't a dud works fine getting HD signal from my FIOS DVR to my Samsung 1080p TV and also works getting HD signal from my Samsung Blu-ray player to the same TV. The good news is that the price of these cables is so cheap that I can afford to order another one risking it not working instead of buying some fancy cable. By the way, anyone who is shopping around for HDMI cables, just ask an electrical engineer who will tell you that HDMI quality is not important because of the error correction in the signal, etc.

Although this was a 2 star review, it actually made me want to buy this cable because it pointed out that even though he got a bad cable, he also got a good one, and based on the amount of good reviews, I would guess the bad cables are pretty rare. You can still order 5 of these for less than the price of one that you'd find in a retail store.

@ Tinman357, love your way of thinking. Can't beat the price. Duds happen and the odds are with us. ¢¼

I only purchased one of these. The strange thing is that it maintains a perfect signal when connected to my projector and DirecTV box, but when I connect it to my projector and LG BD390 (which is why I purchased it) it has a hard time picking up a signal. It will come on for half-a-second then drop to a black screen and is mostly off than on. I would order another cable but it's hard to say whether another would resolve the issue, since a regular shorter HDMI cable works ok with the BD player and also the long one works ok with the DVR. Weird.

Is your DirecTV outputting 1080P? If not then its the cable is too poor quality to support high bandwidth signals. IE Your Blu-ray player can't output the higher signal.

So I'm guessing like other reviewers said either it work or don't just 1s and 0s. But listen even though you can scrap off the gold and get your money back last time gold was $1758 an ounce. Since it only $5 you came out winner......c'mon peoples common sense here $5 gold plated connectors?.
