I purchased an HDTV 1080p TV with true color support about 2 weeks ago and a PS3 about 3 weeks ago. I had my PS3 hooked up with a $130 monster cable because the guy at the store convinced me it would make a difference in my picture.
While surfing the web, reading video and audiophile reviewers comment about HDTV related stuff, long story short I came across the cable debate and thought I'd test it out myself. I hooked up the PS3 with the monster cable, played clips of Black Hawk Down in Blu Ray, then hooked it up with this cheap cable. No difference at all. I guarantee you I am so picky with the picture and sound aspect of home theatre (well isn't that the point of home theater!) and would not subsidize quality to save a few bucks.
The picture is exactly the same as the monster cables picture. For those who complain about durability:
First off, the cables more durable then the monster cable. The monster cable was so thick it began to angle itself on the HDMI connection port. All that unnecessary crap was weighing it down and bending the connector port. Secondly, you don't say hey check out my super durable ultra quality HDMI cable that does the same thing as a $5 cable, you do that with cars and clothes, not cables. Therefore the performance is what should count not the brand name. Thirdly, digital signals have no loss, no matter how bad the cable is. This cables quality isn't bad, its actually very good, but assuming it was so bad that it was crap, the picture simply would not go through instead of going through poorly.
Injecting gas and having 10 coats of plastic around the cable won't increase the bandwidth of it, either. Only the HDMI version certification can do that. An HDMI 1.1 monster cable has the same bandiwdth as a $10 HDMI 1.1 cable because its meant to support the expected bandwidth requirements of an HDMI 1.1 unit/tv/ps3, etc
As an electronics engineer, I know all this is absolute BS. In analog signals the argument of display quality corresponding to signal strength can be made. But digital signals don't work the same way -- either the data is received, or it isn't. If the data is successfully and consistently received, the signal strength (or signal "quality") is irrelevant. The display on the TV and the sound quality is exactly the same. An analogy can be made of a digital computer file -- a JPG photo stored on a top-quality hard drive will display exactly the same as the same photo stored on the cheapest sub-standard floppy disk -- either it displays, or the file is corrupt and won't display. What is certain is that the quality of the photo displayed from the cheap floppy will not be fuzzy or otherwise any less sharp than the same photo displayed from the expensive hard drive. The digital photo will display EXACTLY the same, regardless of where it was stored. You can also copy it multiples of times and the quality will not degrade over successive duplication ... the nth copy will be exactly the same as the original. Such is one of the key benefits of digital transmission over analog transmission.
Don't get me wrong -- M### cables are indeed very high quality. But there is a point of over kill. Gold plating contacts is good, helping to prevent high-resistance corrosion on contact points (which is why all computer memory contacts are gold plated these days), but it offers no benefit in the middle of the cable (when is the last time you've seen an electronics cable corroded completely through). And, how much oxygen do you think is in the copper of even the cheapest cables? And what difference does a minuscule amount of oxygen make anyway? For the ultimate in hype, I've even seen a special $165 115v wall outlet receptacle offered for sale to replace the standard run-of-the-mill $2 receptacle. Supposedly, the conductors inside are gold plated solid silver for the "ultimate in power purity to achieve the cleanest possible sound quality." Geez! And what about the house wiring up to that point? And the circuit breakers in the breaker box? Or the "cleanliness" of the power coming from the power company? I guess as the saying goes, there's a sucker born every minute.
Basically, in digital transmission cables the proof is in the pudding -- if it works, it works. There is no point in paying big bucks for esoteric nonsense. The super expensive HDMI cables will NOT provide superior visual or auditory results. Put the money you save into something actually meaningful.
Also, as the former owner of a chain of computer stores, I know very well how retailing works. One thing to know is that it is common practice to boost profits with very high profit add-ons: you shop around and find the best deal on a computer, printer, TV, or whatever. That main item may often have a low profit margin (due to heavy competition), but where they get you is in the add-ons that you select to go with the item, such as cables and other accessories. It is not uncommon for items such as cables to have 100%, 200%, 300% or even higher markup. Then along came a sharp marketer who had the idea of creating super expensive cables, with all kinds of phoney "technical" hype for selling a $15 cable marked up to $70 instead of a $3 cable marked up to $12. They are successfully re-educating consumers into believing that cables are very expensive, and that less expensive cables are inferior and don't work well (you paid a lot for that TV ... don't you want a good, clear signal?). Most customers probably think that's just what cables cost. And, to further force the customers to pay up, they carry ONLY those super overpriced cables so the customer has no choice. Knowing that most customers are not technically savvy, almost all customers fall for the hype and pay up. The retailer may actually make more profit in your cable purchase than in the TV you buy!
Another thing to know is that something called "spiffs" are very common in electronics retailing. A spiff is a set amount of bonus to a salesman to encourage him/her to push people on a specific product. It could come from the manufacturer -- for example, XYZ printer manufacturer offers a $20 spiff for every model #B printer sold and $10 spiff for every model #C printer sold. Retailers are happy with this because it's a cash benefit to their sales staff which, since paid by the manufacturer, costs the retailer nothing and increases profits due to increased sales volume. Or, it could come from the retailer itself -- for example, the salesman gets a $10 spiff for every M### cable sold, which would certainly encourage the salesman to sell an expensive cable with every TV sold. You can hear the sales meeting now: "When you sell a TV, make sure you sell a cable with that TV!" In my stores the manufacturers were constantly trying to get me to allow them to offer spiffs to my salesmen on their products, however I outlawed all spiffs because I didn't want salesmen pushing anything on customers. Instead, I wanted them to offer honest advice with no ulterior motivations. But I can tell you spiffs are very common practice. How often do you have a salesman try to push you to buy a warranty extension? Warranty extensions are extremely high profit margin sales which are almost always spiffed. Whenever a salesman seems to be pushing you a little too strongly to buy a specific product, suspect that a spiff could be the motivation.
