i am looking for an HDMI cable to attach my laptop to TV, so I can use the TV as my monitor. is this the right type of cable? i am unsure about the end with loose wires! when i previously used an HDMI to connect TV to satellite receiver, it didn't have the loose ends. i'm pretty sure that can't connect to a laptop either. if this isn't the right one, can you please tell me what to look for? maybe a link or item #? thanks

BEST ANSWER:Thank you for your question.
Any of the HDMI cables we carry would be suitable for that setup.
Cable works like any other HDMI cable. Haven't had a problem with it. I bought the purple cable as I've got a total or 4 HDMI inputs on my TCL RoKu Smart TV. I wanted the HDMI tables to be color coordinated so I can determine what devices belong to what cable. Everything worked out as planned.
PROS: Cable works like any other HDMI cable. Haven't had a problem with it.
HDCP issues....is the cord broken or was this intintional?
I am a streamer on twitch and i needed a long hdmi cord so i bought this one to fit right into my color coded system. I buy all my cords from monoprice. I have an avermedia Live gamer HD that i stream from. i use a monoprice hdmi cable from the console into the "in" port and a monoprice cable into the "out" port to the receiver.
this setup has always worked for me and i have no complaints. I moved my streaming computer a few feet away, and needed a longer chord, so i bought this purple one to fit the bill. this chord does not work in the "out" port of the live gamer hd. at first i thought either my receiver or computer were going out, but then i tried changing cables to some of my old colored monoprice cables and low and behold it worked. So i know its this specific cable. I guess ill have to buy another one on my next order.
Monoprice is great and ill still buy all my cables from here, its just disappointing when things dont work. these things happen though.
PROS: its long and purple. i needed it for my color coded receiver system.
CONS: i think the cord has an issue with hdcp. it does not display content when other cords do.
I purchased multiple colors of the 10ft HDMI cables to give each of my (4) kids their own color to keep with their laptops. The different colors help eliminate any issues of ownership. The cables work flawlessly connecting their laptops to any screen that has a HDMI input. Would recommend this product to others.
