18Gbps compliant, works for 4K 60p 8 bit and 4K 24p 12 bit; both 4:4:4 feed
I bought this 5 ft cable seven years ago to play regular blu-rays. Over the years, I have changed many cables, but not this one. Lately, I continue to use this cable from my UHD player (Sony UBP-X800) to my receiver. No issues what so ever.
Who knows, when HDMI 2.1 comes, this might still work
Breaks on its own faster than it should. First one broke around four months after my purchase and another one broke today ( August 5, 2015). I'm noticing a pattern here: first Monoprice's USB cables are junk and break very fast and now their HDMI cables are showing similar symptoms. This is not the quality I got used to from Monoprice and it seems their quality control is slipping. Soon I may not know what's even worth buying if this keeps up.
Thank you for your review on PID 4966. I am truly sorry to hear about the inconvenient experience you have faced while using these HDMI cables. If I may ask, can you further describe how the cables have broken (for example, physical damage, failing to output a signal, etc.)? What devices are connected in this setup? Also, do you happen to have the order number(s) for the cables? Please let me know so we can best assist you with this issue. Thank you!

Bought this to try troubleshooting why my Audio Return Channel wasn't working. HDMI didn't fix the issue. I'm sure the cable is fine, I just have a few more connections and a longer HDMI in the wall most likely causing my issues. Went with an optical cable to alleviate my HDMI Arc issue.

This cable is really only useful for a straight run from 1 HDMI port to another HDMI port. If there is even the slightest of bend, the cable is useless. In my case, I connected one end to my TV and the other end to a HT receiver. When I moved the TV, the connector snapped off at the TV. I consider myself luck that the TV port was undamaged, and that only the cable was damaged. The cable is now useless. This was a waste of money. I had to purchase a flexible cable from a local stereo shop.
Ok for those who do not know a HDMI cable either works or it does not. There is not ghosting or partial picture or sound and no video, it is a simple all the zeros and ones went from a to b or they did not. That said this cable was cheap in price yet great in quality. Is it thick and beefy, well yes it is and I don’t mind one bit, if I did I would have ponied up and ordered the ultra slim redmere series that is superiorly flexible and extremely thin. As I have these cables on other Home Theater set-ups they’ve always been above the competition, especially in the price vs. quality department.
