These cables are well quality built. I use to hook up my new and old components, including connected to hdmi matrix switch. They are made from high quality materials with a sturdy design. Just plug and play.
This cable works as expected. The cable is quite rigid but is probably intended to be. I would suggest buying a longer cable than you need for your application. I should have bought 10' but as I said, 6' works fine. It is a matter of preference.
These are very high quality cables, but they are far too rigid for residential use. Cannot fit in walls, nor around corners, nor in tight spaces. Might be good for some commercial applications, but NOT FOR RESIDENTIAL USE.
