    High Failure Rate
    I've bought 4 of these cables over the last 2 years. The cables have clearly come from different patches as there are cosmetic differences between them. All four have now failed. My albeit small data-set says: "Expect six months"

    First time one did, I figured I did something, so I bought more to replace it. Now I know I've been throwing good money after bad. Going to go with another vendor at this point.

    PROS: Cheap, long runs available.

    CONS: High Failure Rate

    Good 4K@60Hz support when the cable is not defective, but bad ARC support
    I ended up buying two of the 50ft cables and returning both. One could do 4K@60Hz and the other couldn't (although notably my TV can't do 4K@60Hz with full 4:4:4 chroma so I didn't confirm that part), so overall I was satisfied with that aspect. But both cables couldn't do anything better than 2.1-channel stereo over ARC. The 2016 Vizio P-Series line can do Dolby D+ and Atmos over ARC but this cable just made everything sound metallic and weird.

    Overall this cable convinced me that doing long HDMI runs and expecting all picture and audio features to work properly just isn't reasonable. So I ended up redoing my plans for my home speaker room to no longer need the long cable run and am happy with that choice.

    PROS: - One of the two cables I tested could do 4K@60Hz, so that seems to be fine.
    - No HDMI handshake issues detected.

    CONS: - Trying to do Dolby D+ or Atmos over ARC from a 2016 Vizio P-Series TV resulted in very distorted sound.

    50 ft HDMI
    Works perfectly. Quality appearance. Great price. On-time delivery.

    PROS: Advice online was that long HDMI runs needed some kind of "boost" to the signal. Redmere cables do that. Since I had to fish the wires thru walls I can't say if a non-active HDMI would have worked, but I can say that this 50' Redmere cable gives a great picture and the price was right.

    CONS: None. Install note. This had to go up/down, around several corners and feed through a wall. I measured the other side of the wall, thought I accounted for all the twists, turns and up/down and thought 40' would easily do it. Good thing I got a 50' cable because I have only 1-2 feet left over. Just saying be generous in your estimates!

    Long cable run problem solved
    The MonoPrice representative suggested this cable to solve a transmission problem I had on a long cable run from my receiver to my tv. This cable solved my problem and the MonoPrice people were easy to deal with.

    Great long distance cable
    I bought this to connect an AVR to a projector that's 50ft away. Everything works great, including HDR. I'm very happy with this purchase

    PROS: Great long distance HDMI cable

    CONS: N/A

    Great for standard 1080p
    It's worked for me for a long time now. I just have a pretty standard 1080p TV connected to my PC. Audio and video work great.

    Just make sure you plug it in correctly.

    Great cable
    I had tried a different hdmi cable & found it would go on & off. I read some of the reviews & it was suggested to use this cable this cable. I installed & it worked great

    PROS: It worked great & was priced right.

    CONS: None

    Surprisingly good
    Was quoted 10x the price for a commercial cable install due to the distance between computer and TV screen. I decided to 'risk it' on a Redmere cable, on the basis that if it didn't work it wasn't a horrendous loss. The professional cable installer was quite skeptical but agreed it was worth a shot.

    Tested before installation and it worked. Pulled the cable and it still works.

    Very pleased with the result and saved a pile of money. Can't beat that!

    PROS: HDMI picture works from across a large conference room.

    CONS: Cable is a little stiff and takes a bit to unwind, but that's being very fussy.
