Remember: You Don't Need To Buy Expensive Cables For That New TV

Adam writes in with a reminder for those of you who got a new TV, Blu-Ray player, or video game system this holiday season: you don’t need to spend a fortune on fancy HDMI cables.

We’ve been saying this for a while, and we’re not alone. Those $50 cables you see at Best Buy aren’t any better than the cheap ones you can find on Monoprice or Newegg. Our reader also recommends PCH Cables and Blue Jeans Cable (which is clearly not bundling any site design costs into its cable prices). Other suggestions?
