    does this cable support 4k at 60hz with HDR?
    A shopper on Jan 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: These cables say it can transmit 18 Gbps, which is basically 4K (4960x2160 resolution) at 60 fps with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling. That will pretty much work what HDR demands. If you see other HDMI cables that do not have a bandwidth of 18 Gbps, most likely they are only able to transmit half that information (such as 4K at 30 fps, or 4K at 60 fps but at 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 subsampling. You'll probably either notice a loss in clarity of color (this is very noticable when you see text and spreadsheets since text is very defined on the edge next to white space.. a 4:2:2 or 4:2:0, you will notice that there is a fuzz of gray pixels.. so your text doesn't look sharp. Or the other case is that your movies have a lot of motion blur at 30 fps..
    I notice the 3ft cable is also available as the shortest active cable. Is there in advantage in the active version at such a short length ?

    Ultra Slim Series High Speed HDMI Cable, 6ft Black
    BEST ANSWER: If the cable is less than about 40ft, the difference between active and passive is mostly the specs alone. So if the passive cable has the same bandwidth, rating & HDCP as the active one; save money and go with the less expensive cable which is usually the passive one. I hope this helps. In my install business, we only use active cables when the run is longer than a passive cable will handle.
    will this active HDMI cable works with HDMI extender over CAT6, also on monoprice?? ( Product ID: 8200)

    HDMI Over Cat5e/Cat6 Extender Wall Plate with LED Indicator (Pair), Single Port (1P), White
    BEST ANSWER: I have used these cables with a Kramer TP-580T/R series HD-BASE-T units. They work fine. Not all HDMI over CAT5E may work well and it varies from unit to unit (you get what you pay for).
    Are these cables compatible with HDCP2.2 components?
    New User U on Feb 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use this cable to connect a Samsung UBD-K8500 to an LG OLED65E6P. I have not encountered any video issues with this setup.
    Hi, my current set up is what I would like to keep the next one laid out like. I plan on getting a 4k receiver with full specs it has 4k in's and an output to the tv and the output on the receiver is also 4k compliant. Currently with my 1080p I have my blu-ray player, and ps4 connected to the receiver and the out from the receiver to the television. My question is if I do the same thing but with all 4k UHD compliant components: receiver, ps4 pro with 4k, oppo uhd bd player can I hook up all the cables to my compliant 4k receiver with the tv in part of the cable to the receiver with an 4k compliant output to the tv without connecting all my devices to the tv directly? Everything in the chain will be 4k uhd spec including the output on the receiver. All my cables are under 15ft. Thanks in advance.
    Benjamin G on Jun 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Active HDMI cables are best used as the last cable that will plug directly into the TV's HDMI input. For your setup, I would recommend using our Certified Premium HDMI cables. We have various lengths available up to 25ft. Below is a link to the 6ft cable (Product # 15428).

    I want to use three of these to connect my TV to my cable box, dvd player, and apple tv box. Is that ok?
    ROBERT M on Feb 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It took me a while to find time pull out the components, but when I finally hooked these up for all of my inputs and outputs they worked fine, take up less space and are nice and flexible. 3' reached nearby components, used 6' for TV and cable box so cable could be on top of a shelf for easier pwr off/on rebooting.
    i need 2 HDMI cables to:
    1. connect TV straight to cable box (10' length)
    2. connect TV to a Processor (10' length) where all other video devices connect to (PS3 & Wii)
    i know the "Active" cables are best used for direct connection from TV to devices, but will a "Active" cable work THROUGH a processor and display the video from the video sources (PS3 & Wii) along with playing the audio?
    FYI: i am currently using the Passive Slim HDMI cables from my Processor to all my video sources and everything works great.
    David N on Apr 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. We would not recommend having the TV labeled end plugged into a processors input for the TV end has the active chipset inside of it and requires 5V of power that the TV's HDMI input will provide. If you are looking to have 18Gbps, I would recommend using our Certified Premium High Speed HDMI cables. Such as Product ID 15429.

    Poor quality
    1st one did not pass a 4k 4:4:4 60Hz signal. Other (active) cables worked fine. I think these cables have quality issues.

    Very disappointed customer
    I just bought new 4K TV and had the cable company (Rogers Cable in Toronto). In anticipation of this I ordered this product thinking this cable would be much better than the one from the cable company. This product was slimmer, faster and had 60 Hz, or at least that was what was advertised. The cable guy was skeptical when I asked him to substitute this product for theirs. Sure enough the Monoprice cable failed miserably and their cable worked perfectly. Still not believing this I tried it on simply HDMI and it didn't work. Nor did it work on my friend's 4K TV. I should have know better with all of the other poor reviews. Please do not may the same mistake I made. Monoprice is great but this product is very poor quality. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!!!

    PROS: Absolutely nothing.

    CONS: A waste of time and money. I am now out of shipping costs, exchange rate and custom duties, even if I spend more money to ship it back for a refund. Read the other reviews and buyer beware, if you don't want to take just my word for it.

    Work great for 4K
    I've been trading out and using Ultra Slim HDMI cables for a couple years now. These 18Gbps do the same job and support full 4K (60Hz) resolution. The slim design reduces the clutter in the cabinet for sure. I use these to connect from XBOX ONE S directly to my Sony UltraHD TV, since my older Onkyo receiver does not support 4K HDMI switching. The cable is nice & flexible, connectors are a good size & do not extend too far out, and most importantly the picture is awesome!

    The regular Ultra Slim HDMI cables work great up to 1080p going from Cable Box or BluRay to Onkyo receiver, with a second Ultra Slim going from Onkyo to the TV. I mention this because you cannot string two active cables together in series, but you can if you have an audio receiver in-between. Hope that makes sense & helps.

    Utterly Worthless. - Not a "rage" review - 4 cables tested
    Let me set the stage: I just upgraded my entire entertainment setup. PS4 Pro, Xbox S, Denon AVR-X4200W, Roku Ultra, and a shiny new LG OLED65C6P. My PC of course also pushes 4k content.

    Once I bought ALL of this stuff, I immediately put my knowledge of "expensive cables are pointless" to use, and purchased 10 Amazon Basics High Speed HDMI cables to hook everything up.

    No problems. In fact, I argued with some folks in a TECH forum who were discussing 18 different types of cables and whether they could carry a 4k 60hz HDR 4.4.4 4.2.2 etc signal. Brands I never heard of, prices all over the place. I simply said my $6 (for the length I was getting) Amazon Basics cable did everything just fine.

    Then I had an issue with getting Dolby Vision and HDR to work on Netflix with the TV app, Roku, PS4, etc. Turns out it was user error, but in the process I went hunting for a different type of cable to try out. Supposedly you need 18gb/s to push all this. My cables are rated at 10gb/s. I came here because I have purchased decent quality cables before for a good price.

    The only cables listed at 18gb/s were these active cables, and of course I liked the fact they were slim. So i bought 3 actives and one non-active.

    EVERYTHING I tried these cables on had issues. The PS4 Pro would lose signal intermittently, blanking in and out. I've read about HDCP handshake issues with the console so I chalked it up to that. I used it on other devices.

    From AVR to TV - ARC works (even though some say it doesn't) but HDCP handshake fails from time to time, and I get the same blanking out randomly.

    From Xbox One S - No drop outs on signal, but from time to time when I turn on my setup (DVR - Xbox - Denon - TV) the xbox gives me a picture lost message and I have to unplug and re-seat the cable. Then sometimes when I turn the xbox off and on (I was testing my Logitech Elite remote) the sound simply wouldn't work until I rebooted either the console or the AVR.

    From DVR to Xbox S - Intermittent sound issues (very infrequent) and intermittent video blanking, AGAIN. This is on a 1080P SIGNAL from the DTV box! Not 4k!

    So basically on every single device, using a combination of ANY of the 4 cables either together, one at a time with my tried-and-true hdmi cables, or in any combination thereof, I get both audio and sound issues. INSANE. ALL FOUR. Whether it's a 4k Device or NOT.

    And yes, I know how to tell which end goes into which device. It plainly states which end goes where.

    Bottom line, these cables are worthless. I could understand ONE problem. ONE bad cable. But the chances of me receiving FOUR (3 active, one not) HDMI cables that are ALL defective I have to say is one in a million easy. These things can NOT handle 4k @ 60hz FOR SURE, and you will still have issues with 1080p as well.

    I know this is word-y, but this is lengthy to show that I have intensely put these things to the test to make sure it wasn't anything other than the cables themselves. Couple that with other reviews, and well....

    These cables do not work well with PS4 Pro.
    Bought some of these cables to use with my PS4 Pro. They do not work with the system at all when used on the 60hz port on my Samsung 6300KU 4KTV. Monoprice has seriously gone downhill as of late and I am looking for another HDMI cable to migrate to.

    Will likely return
    I picked up several of these as they are cheaper than many of the other 18Gbps RedMere cables I've found out there. I got one to hook up to a Roku I bring with me while I travel, and one to hook up to a DirecTV Genie Mini, and one to hook up to a Samsung BDF7500. The Samsung device has no issues. The DirecTV Genie Mini will only support 1080i with this cable, not 1080p. The Roku won't send a signal through this. And yes, I've tried both the source end and the TV end (potentially thinking they may have been labelled incorrectly). I ended up going back to older Monoprice HDMI 1.2 cables I had which are super thick, but work. I don't know if these *only* support devices that upside to 4k or are *only* meant for 4k, but these were fairly disappointing.

    PROS: Thin and fairly cheap

    CONS: Doesn't work on multiple devices

    4k computer display
    I'm using this cable to display 4k 30Hz from my Macbook Pro to a 4k Seiki TV. Works as expected, the connectors small (unobtrusive) and they are nice and tight so I don't have to worry about them being pulled out.
    August 16, 2016
    No signal
    I bought two of these for my Nvidia Shield and 4K upscale Blu-ray player, neither of which gave off a signal when I swapped out for these HDMI cables. Am already in the process of returning them.
    February 17, 2016
    If it works it is fine
    I had to return ½ of the 6 that I bought, they did not work. no signal The replacement batch I ended up just returning for a refund because they also did not work. The ones that do work the 4K picture is excellent. So i guess buyer beware some good some bad cable. The customer service was excellent for the returns, no problems

    Works in Some Devices, Not on Others
    Used this cable to connect a newer bedroom TV (Samsung 5500 series) to a DirecTV HR24 and had no signal. Old HDMI cables worked just fine. I then changed the cable to connect an Apple TV to the same Samsung 5500 series television and had no issues with getting a signal. I don't know why I didn't get a signal from the DirecTV box, but it's something Monoprice might like to look into - I expect that these should work with all HDMI components - that is the reason for the 3 stars as opposed to 5.

    PROS: Thin cable
    Good looking metal connectors

    CONS: May not be compatible with all sources
