1) They are high quality (some of the best that I've seen)
on January 24, 2016
I am an IT Professional and have tons of cables and equipment at my disposal...I ordered these simply because I needed a 10 footer.
1) They appear to be high quality...and we all know that the only real benefit of using gold-plated connectors is that they don't produces any patina and can be touched with bare hands etc...so they should last longer. However, when I mention high quality...I'm talking about the cables and fittings themselves - no doubt these are beautifully coated and tightly wound braided jacket, but I cannot see whats underneath the jacket! The HDMI fittings appear to be connected to the cable and sealed well, however...these are thick and rigid and if one end is moved around a lot...it could damage the HDMI solder connections - in my scenario...I should never have this issue.
2) This came with...a right angle adapter if you're HDMI ports are too close to the edge of your TV - you may use this...but again...there is a chance of attenuation if you do - speaking of throughput...I don't have anything to test the actual signal-strength with, so this review may not be as accurate and thorough as others. I can say however that I did not see a difference in quality (bad or good) on my Plasma and LED 65" TV's.
3) Lastly, they also come with (x3) velcro cable straps with their logo on it! FREE of charge. Nice touch that they didn't need to do...and the overall appearance of the aqua blue braided jacket of these cables are just gorgeous looking; so if you need to leave this cable out in plain sight - they look kewl!
I am happy with this purchase for the price...and these are less expensive/better quality than Monster Cable...but if I had to do all over again...I would probably look at "Monoprice" cables w/Redmere technology (http://smile.amazon.com/Monoprice-10-2Gbps-Performance-RedMere%C2%AE-Technology/dp/B00AJHBMSS/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1453677152&sr=8-2&keywords=monoprice+redmere )
...I was unaware of this brand/quality until I read another reviewer's comments...thanks Lisa!
