Don't buy! Good at first but 3 out of 3 cables are no longer working.
on September 6, 2016
I originally purchased the 25-foot 2-pack for a new wall mounted TV set-up. I was very happy with the HDMI cables. They seemed sturdy and were easy to fit through the in-wall conduit. I actually ended up purchasing a 3rd 25-foot HDMI cable for another new wall mounted TV set-up. Well, it all went down-hill from there. Shorty after everything was installed the picture would cut out for a few seconds and/or we would get a warning message along the lines of "...your TV does not support the broadcast signal...switch to component cables for best results..." which was impossible since we have a brand spanking new LG smart TV and an HD DirecTV receiver. Anyway, we thought it was a fluke so we dismissed it. Then one night the other TV set-up lost picture all together and after fiddling with all the cables I got the same "..does not support the broadcast signal..." message and the screen went completely black and wouldn't come back. I knew at this point that it had to be the HDMI cable because we were still getting sound via our surround set-up which is connected via component cables(old school Bose system that doesn't have HDMI capability). After having these problems I looked at other negative reviews it turns out I am not the only person with this same issue.
After all this, I attempted to return the cables only to learn that I am outside the return window which I thought was 90 days but turns out it's only 30 days. I am completely unsatisfied with the fact that I spent over $30 on cables that are completely useless.
