    It works.

    Pros: Works
    Not too thick to handle.

    Cons: None

    Used the 50 ft active cable to replace an ordinary HDMI cable and a booster to connect the PC to a TV.
    The cable worked fine without a need for any additional signal boosters.

    Good 4K@60Hz support when the cable is not defective, but bad ARC support

    • Adam,

    Pros: - One of the two cables I tested could do 4K@60Hz, so that seems to be fine.
    - No HDMI handshake issues detected.

    Cons: - Trying to do Dolby D+ or Atmos over ARC from a 2016 Vizio P-Series TV resulted in very distorted sound.

    I ended up buying two of the 50ft cables and returning both. One could do 4K@60Hz and the other couldn't (although notably my TV can't do 4K@60Hz with full 4:4:4 chroma so I didn't confirm that part), so overall I was satisfied with that aspect. But both cables couldn't do anything better than 2.1-channel stereo over ARC. The 2016 Vizio P-Series line can do Dolby D+ and Atmos over ARC but this cable just made everything sound metallic and weird.

    Overall this cable convinced me that doing long HDMI runs and expecting all picture and audio features to work properly just isn't reasonable. So I ended up redoing my plans for my home speaker room to no longer need the long cable run and am happy with that choice.

    Excellent quality and worth the wait.

    • Josh Brown,

    Pros: Excellent signal no issues at all with audio and video.

    Cons: None.

    I've been waiting years for an affordable 50' HDMI cable that is thin, but doesn't lose signal at long lengths. This cable met all of those demands. I snaked this cable through a tiny cable track taking 90 degree turns around corners/walls with no problem. The cable uses Redmere technology to produce a better signal and it shows. My application was a 1080p projector going back to my receiver which is abou 46 feet away. I have watched multiple action Blu-Ray movies in full HD and have not seen any issues with A/V quality. Thank you Monoprice! Couldn't be happier.

    Surprisingly good

    • Rastus,

    Pros: HDMI picture works from across a large conference room.

    Cons: Cable is a little stiff and takes a bit to unwind, but that's being very fussy.

    Was quoted 10x the price for a commercial cable install due to the distance between computer and TV screen. I decided to 'risk it' on a Redmere cable, on the basis that if it didn't work it wasn't a horrendous loss. The professional cable installer was quite skeptical but agreed it was worth a shot.
    Tested before installation and it worked. Pulled the cable and it still works.
    Very pleased with the result and saved a pile of money. Can't beat that!
