CNET Says Cheap HDMI Cables Just As Good As Pricey Ones

CNET has weighed in and agrees with what we’ve been telling you: cheap HDMI cables are just as good as pricey ones.

Do you really need to spend that much money on a single HDMI cable? Absolutely not–those cables are a rip-off. You should never pay more than $10 for a standard six-foot HDMI cable. And despite what salesmen and manufacturers might tell you, there’s no meaningful difference between the $10 cable and the $50 cable…The editors at CNET are so confident that cheap HDMI cables offer identical performance, we’ve been using inexpensive Monoprice HDMI cables in the CNET Home Theater Lab for more than a year with no issues.

They recommend buying from Monoprice.
