    Currently upgrading my components and need cable help. My components consist of the following... LG OLED65C6P, Marantz SR7010, PS4, and the new Oppo UDP-203. Aside from my PS4, all my new components are up to date with the latest technology. Where my problem lies is, from my receiver to the TV I need a 45FT cable. I have been looking at your Cabernet series which is rated 18gbps and can support all my 4K/3-D needs including 4K/60 Hz at 4:4:4:. Most reviews are great, however some say they don't work. I need help! Also, once the 45FT is taken care of I need help choosing the best 18gbps cables to hook my components to my receiver at a length of 3-6FT. Also, will these throughput HDR and Dolby vision content?
    A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Have the 50ft cable connected from a Denon AVR-X4300H to LG OLED65E6P and this cable is able to pass a 4k signal with HDR from my Xbox.
    Does this cable support ARC?
    New User U on Mar 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I was just told by your staff in an email that it did not support ARC though they refered to it as ARK. I have this cable in the 40ft and ARC is NOT working. The 1080 sources are going to my 4k tv fine. The cable is connected correctly. Neither the TV or the receiver recognize an ARC.
    Can a HDMI female connector faceplate be used to terminate a 100 feet HDMI cables with a additional 2 meters long ultra flexible HDMI cable to connect to TV?
    A shopper on Oct 3, 2017
    Can I use this to plug in from my ps4 to my receiver and get HDR?
    Carl C on Mar 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Since this cable is an Active HDMI cable, it would not be recommended to have the TV labeled end plugged into the input of a receiver. It is intended to have that end plugged directly into a TV. It would also not support HDR. I would recommend using our Certified Premium High Speed HDMI cables, product # 21511. These would not be directional and would support HDR.

    Besides the HDMI cable, what else is needed to watch HULU TV on a TV ?
    New User U on Feb 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You need an internet connection, either wired or wireless. You will also need a smart TV, or a device like a Roku or Chrome-cast.
    Are they available in white?

    Does this cable support ethernet connections? I am running ethernet into my deck and then want to hard-connect my TV to the internet via the HDMI cable via 25' cable length.
    David P on Nov 21, 2017
    What is the size (dimensions) of the connector? I would like to run cable this through conduit.

    Cable was great while it worked
    Cable was great while it worked. I bought it Nov 27th and just got back from my holidays now to find that the cable no longer works. I tested multiple devices with it to different display devices. I then tested all the same with a different cable and found that it worked, showing the cable has failed in under a months worth of usage.

    Excellent cable
    If you plan to connect your new 4K display to a computer capable of delivering 4k @ 60 Hz, this is the cable you'll want - greatest bandwidth for a longer cable that monoprice produces at a reasonable price point. Incase you're not familiar with active cables, pay attention to connect the "source" and "TV/Display" ends correctly.

    PROS: High speed, 4K @ 60Hz compatible over longer distances, quality cable.

    CONS: None

    Excellent! Passes 4k HDR perfectly to my JVC projector from Yamaha receiver.

    Great Cable for Price
    Great Cable for Price. Buy all my HDMI cables from Monoprice.

    An excellent substitute for a smart tv. Hooked between my pc and a 60" flat screen, opened up a whole new experience. No apparent loss of resolution.

    PROS: Excellent fidelity, reasonable price.

    CONS: None

    Great Cable
    Bought this to run in the wall and needed 20' but this only came in 15' or 25' so I have more cable than needed but it is a great high quality cable and served the purpose well.

    PROS: Great quality and well marked for specific source and monitor

    CONS: Wish there would have been a 20' length.
    December 27, 2015
    Beware of splitters
    I agree with the other reviews. These are great cables. I did notice, however, that they don't seem to work upstream of my HDMI splitters/switches. One end of the cable expects to be plugged into a display. They work fine downstream of my splitters.

    I did not test them with the latest 4K splitters.

    PROS: High bandwidth signals over long distance.

    CONS: May not work upstream of splitters.

    Can't Imagine a better cable at the price point.
    I got a 25' cable after mounting my TV to the bedroom wall. Although the run was much further than it had been the picture quality was much improved over the old short cable. I shopped locally and could only find "cheapo" cables in the length range I needed for almost twice as much as this cable cost me. Had I known using a higher quality cable could make such a difference, I would have done it a long time ago. I just ordered another one for the Blu-Ray player.

    PROS: Outstanding quality for the price. I have run it next to the power cable in a cable channel trim set, with no discernible issues (I have heard that HDMI cables can have a problem with this).

    CONS: None

    Cabernet Ultra CL2 Active High Speed HDMI® Cable, 25ft
    HDMI cables were great, and reasonably priced. I put these through drywall and the connections appears fast and solid. Not too thick, but durable. Please with the recommendation from Monoprice

    PROS: Durable, strong, solid, well noted which side goes to TV/Monitor vs. source

    CONS: None so far.

    Works exactly are promised - including 4k at 25 ft lenght
    This is my 3rd long HDMI cable from Monoprice. All were Cabernet from 25 ft to 75 ft long. All worked as promised. The 25 ft unit is connectected between an Intel Compute Stik 2nd generation sending true 4K video (3840x2160) to a Sony XBR-55x930D screen. Plug and play.

    PROS: Reasonable cost, not to fat for tight bend radius. no external power needed.

    CONS: None
