This cable does what I need it to do for about 15% of the cost of most of the alternatives out there. My picture looks great, I can get 1080p out of my Playstation 3, and I saved some bucks in the process. I couldn't be happier.
From some of the reviews, you'd get the impression that this cable is exceedingly thin or poorly manufactured. Not true. It does have gold-plated ends, it fits snugly in the sockets--won't pop out from its own weight, but also will come loose instead of dragging your equipment to the floor if someone trips over it.
And I got news for you: I used to work at Best Buy, and stuff like cables have some of the highest mark-up in the store. Yup, most of what you're paying for those $100 cables--probably somewhere around $75--is going straight in to the "Profit" column in the ledger.
Buy these and a couple of BDs or a game for the same price as the big name cables.
(1) The cable transmits a digital signal. Digital is "on" or "off", there's nothing in between those two signals. Digital is highly resistant to interference, so you don't need gold tips, fancy shielding, etc when all the equipment cares about is: "Hey, is this an 'on' or an 'off' signal?".
(2) Quality control.
(2a) I've read on here how some people get sloppy connections with these cables. One out of a thousand cables is bound to be funky, no matter what the company. Easy solution (or not easy for those immediate-gratification types): Return cable, exchange for another $12 cable. If the next one you get is still sloppy, I'd check your equipment.
(2b) If the more expensive cable makers are charging $100 for the same product, and that extra money goes to "quality control" (not likely, but bear with me), then I want to work there. Seriously, if the quality assurance folks get $80 for each cable they sell... Well, it adds up quick.
(3) I have one. I may not be a celebrity, but I can definitely say that this is a great product that has yet to steer me wrong.
I was curious: Are there differences that the home user can detect? I bought an inexpensive DVI Gear cable (well, many sellers do add hefty shipping and handling charges), and a slightly more expensive Cables To Go - 40315 Velocity HDMI cable directly from Amazon. I set up a test that I invite others to replicate and expand.
Both cables are made in China. The DVI Gear cable is thinner than the Velocity. Its connectors' gold plating is noticeably thinner than the 24 Karat gold plating on the Velocity (some folks contend that thicker and higher quality plating will maintain a cable's performance over time). The Velocity is advertised as having "100% aluminum foil and braided OFC shield" which "protects against noise and interference." No similar claim for the DVI Gear cable. The Velocity is lifetime warranted; according to a vendor, the DVI Gear has a one-year warranty.
Riders of Rohan scene from LOTR, vol. 2 upconverted to 1080p using a Sony DVP NS77H connected to a Toshiba 40XF550U 40" LCD with 120 Hz frame rate in "natural" picture mode. All gear in a cabinet with numerous cables and electrical cords bunched together. Potential for electrical interference high.
The same scene was run several times using the DVI Gear cable and the Velocity cable. Cables were switched to two different ports on the television to ensure that one port wasn't skewing the test. Two people subjectively judged picture quality, one person (not me) got the test "blind" (not knowing which cable was connected). Audio was not tested.
We were in agreement that the DVI Gear cable appeared to produce a slightly less sharp picture, possibly with slightly less color saturation than the Velocity. No artifacts detected, though.
A BETTER TEST
A better test would be to have exactly the same set-up with two TVs side-by-side, running different kinds of scenes or calibration disks. But our pocketbook ain't that deep!
The Velocity might cost roughly twice as much as the DVI Gear, but offers better performance (hence value) - at least on our gear.
1) Both arrived within a couple days.
2) Picture and sound quality are fantastic.
3) Connectors seem to fit snug, even when there is a fairly sharp bend near the cable-end behind LCD in order for the cable to reach the hole I made in the wall.
4) Cable is pliable and it was easy to fish behind the wall and around a tight corner. Both cables were able to fit nicely in a gap under the bottom of the dry wall and behind the floor board. If you are going to fish your cable behind the dry wall I recommend taping a plastic bag over the end of the connector so that you don't get any dust in there while pulling it up behind the wall.
Bottom line: great product, great value.
