    This says it is High Speed. Does it have 18Gbps throughput? I want it to be able to connect the Caberet Series HDMI (#12961) and the Premium HDMI (#15428) cables for 1 run for 4k. The caberet would be in wall, and pops out of wall to connect directly to the display. The other would run from the Source to the wall outlet.

    BEST ANSWER: Per my chat with customer support, this two piece insert wall plate 7332 will NOT support 4K. You will need a female to female pin connector keystone jack 6852 and the 2-hole wall plate 6727. Also, so that you don't void your home insurance, you will need two CL2 rated HDMI in-wall cables 3659 to connect from bottom plate to top plate. All these numbers correspond to Monoprice item numbers.

    I needed a highly rated 40 ft HDMI cable that would pass through a 3/4 inch conduit in a wall to connect to a projector. mounted to the ceiling. This cable was able fit both requirements.

    PROS: Well made and a great price.

    CONS: None that I have found.

    Absolutely perfect
    I'm a long time home-theater enthusiast and have recently stepped up to 4K. Only problem: despite having all of the right equipment, I could only get 4:2:0 out of my VERY expensive video cards. Turned out the problem was my outdated HDMI cables. I tried several brands / versions with no luck. This cable worked out of the box. Now getting 4:4:4 and couldn't be happier. I'd recommend to anyone, especially for home theaters with longer (over 25') runs. Fantastic product!

    Great Cable!
    I've had better luck with the Cabernet series than with the more expensive Luxe series. Cable works great for my 40ft run. I have not tested any 4k or HDR content with this cable yet so I cant speak to the reliability at this length. Really great price and next day shipping. Cant complain!

    Works great!!
    I had a 40' run through my attic and down the wall. I bought a HDMI from Amazon and I go no picture. I called Monoprice and asked their opinion on this cable. They said this should do the trick and it did.
