The first one was defective, but great Monoprice customer service quickly replaced it and the new one works perfectly. I like the size because the old bulky HDMI cables look awful. This looks great and is as good as any other thick HDMI cable. We have a 4K TV and the picture looks great!
My bedroom TV is wall mounted with a Dish Joey and splitter mounted to the back with Velcro. I needed cables that were short and compact to complete the package and not restrict the space behind the TV. These are amazingly small, flexible, compact, and work perfectly.
