25ft 24AWG CL2 Standard HDMI® Cable With Ethernet - Black
A Standard HDMI® Cable With Ethernet from Monoprice is the only way to ensure that you have the ability to pass the standard and Ethernet signals authorized in the latest HDMI® feature specification.
The CL2 rating on this cable indicates that its outer jacket has been designed to burn more slowly, thereby making it safe for use inside or through the walls of residential classed buildings. The CL2 rating ensures that your cable installation complies with fire safety codes and insurance requirements.
TIP: It is a good idea to test cables and connections before installing them inside a wall. If there are any issues or problems, we can help you resolve them before you spend the time, effort, and expense of installing them inside the walls.
This cable supports the following HDMI® features:
720p/1080i Resolution - The Standard HDMI® Cable With Ethernet has sufficient bandwidth to transfer 720p/1080i video signals between 720p/1080i rated source and sink (display) devices.
HDMI® Ethernet Channel - The HDMI® Ethernet Channel provides 100 Mbps, full-duplex Ethernet traffic along the HDMI® cable, allowing a wired or wireless Ethernet connection on one device to be propagated to other devices. Note that for this feature to be functional, all pieces of equipment between the Ethernet source and the destination must support the HDMI® Ethernet Channel feature.
Audio Return Channel - Normally, your HDMI® cable carries audio information along with the video from a source device (e.g. blu-ray player) to the sink device (display/television). Often times this goes through an AV receiver to drive a home theater audio system. The Audio Return Channel is primarily used to send the audio signal generated by the television when its internal tuner is used, back to the AV receiver, so that you can use your home theater audio system when watching television signals.
Deep Color - The Deep Color feature provides a minimum of 8-bits per color element (24-bits total), providing for a total of over 16 million color variations. Other versions of Deep Color allow for up to 16-bits per element, for a total of 48-bits and over 281 trillion color variations, which really makes your video images come to life!

I recently had the opportunity to test Monoprice HDMI cables with equipment running at 1080p 60Hz with HDCP 148.5MHz The results were very positive.
Please note that success at 1080p depends on a lot of factors including quality of TMDS transmitters, receivers, and anything you might have connected to the cables like HDMI switches, repeaters, HDMI>DVD adapters, etc., therefore these test results should be taken as a data point and not as a guarantee the cables will be problem free @ 1080p with your specific equipment.
For example, during initial testing I had discovered through process of elimination that one of the HDMI>DVI adapters I was using could not reliably pass 1080p. At first I thought the cables were the issue, but after switching out the adapters, the cables worked great.
Also please note, even though some of these cables are listed as only 1080i certified, they did nevertheless pass 1080p without issues for the equipment combination I used. See this post for what was tested at the factory: http://www.avsforum.com/avsvb/show...4&post6953664
The process of listing a cable as passing visual inspection involved looking at black screen for 30 seconds to detect sparkles, then watching video for 1 minute to detect additional artifacts.
Sharp LC45GX6U is a 1920x1080 LCD display which accepts 1080p and 1080p/hdcp when devices are connected directly to the panel, bypassing the external video processor.
Hope you find this information useful.

Cons: 24 AWG cable is really stiff and heavy, use a lighter gauge if you can get away with it. Cable quit working after about a week. It's guaranteed but it costs more to ship back then buy another.
It is really heavy and stiff, I should have ordered a lighter gauge. It quit working, bad connector.

Thank you for your review and my apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 6051. May I ask what is the order number associated with this cable, thanks in advance.

by Brian The problems with the original cable were resolved by Monoprice sending me a brand new one. A good company to deal with

does the job
Cons: thick cable
The 25' cable does the job it was intended for perfectly and at a very reasonable price. The only down side I saw was the thickness of the cable. It's a little harder to make it bend around corners but, not enough to stop me from buying it again should the need arise.

Excellent Long HDMI
Pros: Supports ARC, CEC, 3D and more! This is a great cable.
Cons: It is a bit thick, and very stiff, was hard to pull through conduit.
As far as HDMI goes it is a horrible spec. Features are not requirements of spec version, but if any one of them is present then a cable or device can be listed as compliant with them. Make sure you HDMI cable supports the features you want. This cable indeed supports ARC (Audio Return Channel, if you own a smart TV you want this) and CEC (remote component handling). The only complaint I have is the cable is very stiff compared to some competitors, so make sure you have plenty of space for winding this thing around, tight bends are NOT an option.
