Monster Cable

Are these expensive cables really that much better than the ones that come with the tv.
I got a HDMI cable made by samsung for 18 bucks at Walmart and the same cable with Monsters name on it was over a 100 bucks at best buy????????????

i have dont extensive comparisons with monster hdmi and dvi cables. i compared them to tons of other brands. i can honestly say there is no difference in picture quality in any of them. you just want to make sure you dont buy a cable that is gonna break if it gets wedged between something. on longer runs you may need more expensive hdmi cables since you may need that extra insulation.

my advice if you dont believe me just spend the extra cake on the monster hdmi and check for yourself. then you can do like i did and return them. heck buy a few brands like i did.

Here are excellent cables for almost half the Monster price.


Here are cables that are likely just as good in terms of "I can't see or hear a difference."

www.monoprice.com or www.ramelectronics.net

AR are also a reasonably priced alternative.

Deffinately not worth the money. Accoustic Reasearch are just as good and a lot cheaper.
