No degrading of the signal, which is big for a 50' length. Different than signal loss with the blocks, long cables combined with an inadequate source cause a snow effect in the image. This looks exactly as it should. Which is what cables are meant to do.
I bought this (50') to replace a much more expensive BJC HDMI cable. Going from a Lumagen Radiance XE to a JVC DLA-RS4810, I was getting a lot of "No Signal" with certain resolutions, and flashing picture with others. This cable was an improvement but still didn't work 100%. I went with the Monoprice Redmere cable instead, which works 100% and is much thinner and more flexible. For roughly the same price, it's an easy decision.
PROS: Well made
CONS: Thick, inflexible Wouldn't cleanly pass all HDMI resolutions
Recently upgraded the ManCave. Required two 50' HDMI cables to be run from the equipment closet to TV. Installer said couldn't be done, and if it could, it would cost a bunch. After reading the CNET review, I gave the Monoprice 50' 22AWG HDMI cables a go. Fantastic! 50' and 1080p is perfect, 3D, no problem!
Would buy again but no that i know the dimensions of the HDMI cable ends.
PROS: The cable is very well made and robust.
CONS: The cable HDMI ends are big and chunky so if you have a tight space this cable might not wor for,you.love Monoprice but the cable ends need to be smaller like the same size as Monster HDMI cable that is the only down side to these cables. If you have 3.5" walls it can be difficult to fit this cable in a termination box.
