After monkeying with my bedroom AV stack, my 2m HDMI cable became about one foot too short. I don't like extension cables, but I didn't have the time to pull everything out and run a new cable.
This extension works fine and I've seen no signal degradation. If/when I ever replace the 2m cable with one of the proper length, this extension cable will go on to a second life as a port saver (providing a more accessible HDMI jack for video devices that get plugged in and pulled out regularly).
Great cable with a great price. Fixed my reception/Roku stick interference now that the stick is a bit away from the TV. Also makes it much easier to switch devices for that input now that the connection is made away from the TV itself.
The extension cable is of great quality. I found that it fixed my issue of ARC dropouts between my Samsung HDTV and my new Marantz theatre receiver. The HDMI line from the TV was a little short going to the receiver, and the ARC audio was dropping out. Maybe b/c of a bad connection I could not see. I put this patch line in and it fixed the issue, which means it has quality connections inside the cable, and has the appropriate 'ethernet' compatibility that was mentioned in its description. Really good price also. Did not gouge me on shipping, which I like about Monoprice. I always look at Monoprice first.
PROS: Robust feel, good connection to other lines.
What a great product! I searched everywhere in town for an extention cable. Nobody had one, not Best Buy, HHGregg, Staples, Meijer, or Wal-Mart. I needed a small extension to make my tv stand centered under my tv. Monoprice absolutely rules for stuff like this. I will never try to source these types of things anywhere else.
PROS: perfect price, perfect lenght, monoprice is the only place I could find one of these.
CONS: Having to wait 4 days for it to come, if you want to call it a con. 4 days is a perfectly acceptable amount of time to go from coast to coast.
It's not even fun to rate Monoprice cables, since they're always basically perfect. The build quality is great, the product ships quickly and cheaply, and even though this was just a little extension, this and the bigger cable I bought from Monoprice combined to make gorgeous quality video in my theater.
By nature, I am extremely skeptical of purchasing things on the net. Too many bad experiences. However, I could not be happier with my purchase from Monoprice. I placed a large order on a Sunday morning, and had all items, in one package, by Thursday morning (with 3-5 ground). All items I purchased far exceeded my expectations.
