I ave been buying cables from Monoprice for years. I have always been very impressed with the quality and the incredible price. But this time, it was terrible. The HDMI connectors come off the Palystation all the time. And the one plugged into the TV, brings video but no audio. So this morning I went to Best buy and bought new cables for twice the money but that fit and work by bringing audio as they are supposed to do. I am not sure yet but this might have been my last purchase from Monoprice.
OK Cable assembly excellent performace very inexpensive price
Real copper cable, don't know if this is really silver plated or tin plated as they behave very similarly but assuming t is real silver plated copper, then the price is unreal. the assembly of the cable is OK, we purchased several of them and we had connectivity issues with one of them but promptly replaced by Monoprice, no problems there. Compared to other HDMI cables X 2 and X3 the price of this one seems unbelievable in performance and price ratio. the video definition on all 1080p formats tested (24fps, 30 fps and 60 fps) on film and video is superior, the rendition of color, shading, contrast, textural perception and depth o image is also superior to other brands significantly more costly. These are terms i wasn't going to describe with a non-high end cable, costing less than $200 this one just happened to do all of that for a small fraction of the $. so naturally i started replacing all my HDMI cables in the house and office. an absolute winner in my opinion, to get better than this cable you need to spend upwards of 10 times the price, easily beats the cables costing 3 times as much.
PROS: Real copper, decent connectors, amazing performace in bluray and 1080p sources. Price/performance is without peer. low loss or longer runs up to 25 Ft. or so at this level need to use 22 AWG cable overall a good product.
CONS: not easy t bend not very flexible because of its diameter calculate at least 1 to 2 more Ft to compensate for bending radius cable assembly not the best I've seen, but still very good for the price.
