Mediabridge 50ft HDMI Cable exceeds my expectations!
on November 24, 2012
I was disappointed with a 25ft HDMI cable that was recommended with my recent home theater component purchase. It was NOT a Mediabridge cable, but a cheap cable that worked for many other people that bought it. It didn't work for my application. Therefore I was reluctant to buy anything that was priced reasonably and without breaking the bank. I searched for several days reading over 100 reviews. I was being very critical and patient, even with the positive reviews. I needed something that I didn't have to adjust settings for. I wanted it to work 'right out of the box' so to speak. I picked this Mediabridge 50ft HDMI cable even though some reviews said not to. I was hoping NOT to lose a connection and have it reset every 5 minutes like the other cable. This Mediabridge cable works FANTASTIC and exceeds my expectations! The cable is layed next to 11 other media cables that share the main receiver connections and computer cables without any interference. The first 25 feet of cable stretch straight from TV to BD player, then I wound the last 25 feet and secured it with wire ties to prevent accidental movement or shifting. The connections are as snug as many of the reviews indicate. If someone says that they are loose, it may be the first production cables they released. The one I received are perfect. Every BD video works fantastic, including 3D which was something new to me. It also sends audio perfectly and without a setting adjustment or electrical interference from either unit.
I am completely satisfied with this purchase and hope that it helps to 'weed' out any doubts to look further for a cable of this length to work in your application. I have had the cable connected since receiving it and has not flawed on me. I want to also add that I am an experienced 'tech geek' with home audio, video and PC experience for more than 25 years. I have helped many and hope to have helped you with this review.
