    What is the gauge of the Cabernet Ultra 30 foot cable? Does this truly have a authentic HDMI2..0 spec?
    A shopper on Dec 10, 2016
    Can I use the DP - HDMI adapter (product # 12779) with this Active HDMI cable?

    Cabernet Ultra CL2 Active High Speed HDMI Cable, 30ft
    DisplayPort 1.2a to 4K HDMI Active Adapter, White
    DisplayPort 1.2a to 4K HDMI Active Adapter, White
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes, you would be able to use an active HDMI cable along with the DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. You would just want to be sure to have the source end of the active cable in the HDMI port on the adapter and the TV end of the cable plugged into your display. The active HDMI cable will not work plugged in backwards.
    What are the size of the connector heads? I am looking for a cable that will fit through 3/4" conduit and I need 30 feet. Thanks.
    JAMES O on Dec 5, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: 7/8 of an inch, precisely. If you have a 1 inch hole you will be fine.
    is this flexible where I can run it in a 1" raceway and bend 90 degrees around wall to ceiling?
    james k on Jan 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Cable yes, ends/connectors no. The ends are large and clunky, and I had to drill large holes to go through bulkheads.
    Can this be used for ARC connections - that is, for running the Audio Return Channel from the TV to the Receiver?
    David C on Mar 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes, this cable will support an Audio Return Channel. You just want to be sure that the Source labeled end is connected to your receivers HDMI ARC output and the TV labeled end is plugged into your TV's HDMI ARC input.

    Fails to send 4k@60hz despite it being advertised
    This cable gives very poor results on my LG TV, random black screens, flickering, lines on the screen, etc when used in the full 4k@60hz with 4:4:4 chroma which they seem to advertise it as being capable of. It is not, my TV barely picks it up, my AVR picks it up much better, but still gives flickering to black randomly. Both work fine with shorter cables. Very disappointing to see this. Do not buy this if you want to use it for 4k@60.

    Awesome inexpensive active HDMI cable
    Great cable - runs in wall from my projector to my Pioneer Elite SC99 Receiver. 4K signal nice and crisp from multiple sources

    PROS: Bendable, small and easy to install.

    CONS: Beware this cable is unidirectional! There is a right and wrong end!
    August 18, 2016
    Great cable, just know the difference in high end vs the older HDMI
    My installer and I had been working in the attic and the theater room. We routed speaker wire, coax, HDMI. I finally had the chance to hook everything up and feel like Clark Griswald with the Christmas Lights. All the greatness leading up to plugging it in and then nothing.

    This is not your traditional HDMI cable. It is a uni-directional cable. There is a specific Source end and a TV end. Because power was off in the theater room, it was dark. Never noticed that there were different ends. Once I crawled through the attic, pulled the cable out, routed it in the right direction, everything works fine.

    My recommendation to Monoprice would be to have a little slip of paper in the packaging that gives a warning or notice that the cable goes one way.

    PROS: High quality cable, certified for in walls.

    CONS: No notice that the cable can be installed in only one direction.

    Monoprice is simply the best value on quality cables out there no exceptions!

    This HDMI cable is 30' long and I am using it in my motorhome for the rear TV, works perfectly with no loss.

    PROS: Great price.

    High quality cable

    CONS: None

    Great Product
    I bought this after chatting with a Monoprice rep online. I stated my need for an HDMI that will work in a wall over 25+ft. I originally planned to use it directly from the bluray player to the projector, but came across an AV receiver that. This HDMI cable has worked flawlessly, and 3D pass through works well also.

    PROS: Everything?

    CONS: None.

    Works as advertised
    It's 2.0 HDMI cable and it works as a one-direction signal transmission. What more is there to say?

    Excellent cable
    I only really needed 20 foot but 30 was cheaper. It works perfectly fine as I have it in wall from my TV to the receiver.

    Superb Cable
    Though I had read about the technology in this cable I remained skeptical. It performs much better than other shorter cables I use.

    PROS: Flexible
    High Performance
    Rated for fire resistance
    Not too expensive for the length and performance
    Appears to be of high quality

    CONS: Unidirectional - make certain it's installed right! (Our was only because we had read in advance.)
