My receiver is not new enough to handle HDMI and I wanted a stop gap cable till I upgrade to a new receiver that has HDMI. The cable is solid and the connections are tight and very good. The picture quality is excellent and comparable to HDMI connections.
I have found after many attempts to buy cables for my new projector that any cables running over 30' have degraded quality too much to be worth it. I had issues with hdmi and component cables mainly, a pink line scrolling up the screen. Since then, I have moved all of my components closer to the projector and used 12' cables. This solved my problem. I did keep this cable for certain situations, it was the best quality out of all the store-bought cables I tried(including monster).
It passes the component signal from the cablebox to the TV in another room just fine. The cable is pretty stiff at the ends - because it's a quality cable, so it sticks out quite a bit before you can really turn it. That makes it somewhat tricky to keep in the connectors but you can't use a thinner one if you're running 35 feet.
The Quality of the connectors is good, the cable seems heavy duty enough. The only thing I'd have to say negative about it is that it's a lot thicker than I had anticipated. It's three individual cables stuck together as opposed to a snake type design. It'll work for running the cable along the ceiling which was it's intended purpose, but it's not super flexible.
