The BEST disposable HDMI cable money can buy!

I know you're supposed to change these out after every 3 DVDs or 3,000 gigabits, but being the conservative frugal guy I am, I often leave this sucker plugged in twice as long before I change it out for a fresh one and most of my friends don't notice.

ACTUALLY FILLED WITH DIAMONDS!
Posted by: SoManyDiamonds from: on
At first I was hesitant to pick up such an expensive cable for my new HDTV. My wife pleaded with me saying "Why are you spending more money on the cables than you did on the TV?" Well who has the last laugh now?
When I first opened the packaged I was surprised how heavy the AudioQuest Diamond 3.3' High-Speed HDMI Cable was, it almost pulled the TV down off of the wall, but I assumed that was just quality manufacturing. A few hours later when the shear weight of the cable brought my television (along with the wall mount and drywall) crashing to the floor did I really see the value of the AudioQuest Diamond 3.3' High-Speed HDMI Cable.
When I sifted through the rubble I noticed the HDMI cable had been ripped and diamonds were poring out onto the floor! I quickly scooped them up and brought them to the nearest pawn shop! I was told the diamonds had a value close to $25,000 but since they needed to be framed and would sit around the shop for a while we negotiated down to $1500, an almost $500 profit!
I spend my days now going from Best Buy to Best Buy in search of more AudioQuest Diamond 3.3' High-Speed HDMI Cable. My pawn shop guy continues to buy the loose diamonds from me, it's a wonderful arrangement. I think I'm going to be able to afford a PS4 and Xbox One for Christmas this year!

This cable is a great value. Seems to work at least as well as the $5 cables you can order over the internet. Hope to see an upgraded version in sterling rather than silver plate.

Great cable for the money!
Posted by: BestBuyIsAwesone from: Bloomington, MN on
I bought this cable to hook up my recently purchased a Dynex 19 inch color LCD 720p HDTV (WIDESCREEN!). My TV/VCR combo had served me well for many years and I felt it was time for an upgrade. I was disappointed that my new TV did not have VCR playback capabilities, but I was able to retain the ability to play VHS tapes by incorporating the old TV/VCR combo into my setup as a stand for the new Dynex! I researched HDMI cables for several weeks, reading reviews and watching unboxing videos. My friends recommended that I just buy an inexpensive cable and started spewing techno-babble at me about how HDMI cables work. They claimed that it's not possible for a higher priced HDMI cable to improve picture quality because of how digital video signals work. Something about 1s and 0s and error correction. I was skeptical. I mean my friends are very smart, but they aren't Best Buy employee smart. So I went to my local Best Buy to speak to the experts that I trust. A while back, my computer would not boot into Windows ME and instead displayed the message: "Boot Device Not Found." I thought perhaps the hard drive had become disconnected. Well, I'm glad I took it to the Geek Squad. The technician saw the error msg and was able to determine that I needed a new hard drive without even opening it up or running any kind of diagnostic software. What technical expertise! But let me get back to the cable. I told one of the customer service agents about the my home theater setup and my intentions to hook up my gaming console to my new 19 inch color LCD 720p HDTV (WIDESCREEN!). He recommended this cable for its inherent ability to increase the resolution and frames per second in games. So I bought it and brought it home. I went to the living room to hook up my console and I hit my first snag. Nowhere in the documentation did it specify where to hook the cable up to the NES. I was about to give up but I noticed a cover on the bottom of the Nintendo. It turns out that this is where the expansion port is located which is where you connect the HDMI cable. I hooked the other end up to the TV and fired up the NES. Unfortunately, I didn't get a video signal. After much experimentation I figured it out. To get HD output from an NES you have to hook up the analog outputs as well. Apparently the TV combines these two signals to form an image. And what an image! The blacks were so deep that it desaturated all the color from my living room furniture! I had been meaning to apply a darker stain to my coffee table and now I don't have to! My couches were now black, giving my living room a much needed neutral color scheme. Super Mario Bros looked amazing! I hit the info button on my remote and discovered that it was running in 4k 480Hz with a perfectly matched frame rate of 480 frames per second! I wanted to capture some game footage so I hooked the NES up to the VCR. I've never seen such clarity in a VHS recording! It makes Blu-Ray look like an Etch A Sketch! I now realize why my friends were trying to dissuade me from buying a mid priced cable like this one. They probably purchased some cheap $500 dollar cable and didn't want me to get an HDMI cable with over twice the performance of their cable. I no longer speak to them as I don't need people like that in my life. All my friends now reside in the Mushroom Kingdom. One other thing to note is the the Zapper didn't work with the new TV. This is most likely because the Zapper could not detect if it was hitting a target due to the increased resolution and frame rate. While the documentation leaves room for improvement as hooking up an NES wasn't even mentioned, at this price point I can't justify taking away a star. FIVE STAR PRODUCT!!! If I had any friends left, I would definitely recommend them this product!

You won't believe it at all!!
Posted by: HDMIMarv from: Beverly Hills on
A hefty price tag, but you won't be disappointed. Once I opened the package, I immediately noticed the ground shaking as Angels in heaven sang. Once I plugged this glorious cable from my Blu-Ray to my HDTV, I was literally blown away. The sound, picture, and quality was too amazing. It simply blew my house down, my walls, fixture, and furniture all literally exploded, leaving me homeless. Was it worth it? Yes. I was able to experience true quality with a touch of class.

Can't believe this!
Posted by: RascalChicken37 from: Example: New York, NY on
Ok, for those of you who are reading this, hear me out! I took the advice of a salesperson at BB to upgrade my HDMI cable. He pointed me in the direction of the AudioQuest Diamond 3.3' High-Speed HDMI Cable in the stunning Dark Gray/Black color scheme. As I walked away with my new purchase, I turned to thank the salesperson, but they were gone, in a puff of smoke. I returned home and installed this to my setup (19" Dynex 720p 60Hz) and IMMEDIATELY, the room filled with light, surrounding me from all sides. I was transported DIRECTLY into my television, a la John Ritter in his 1992 box-office smash, Stay Tuned. Unfortunately, I'm now stuck in syndication land somewhere, sandwiched between Will and Grace and Twin Peaks. If someone could help me get out, that would be great! Thanks a bunch, Best Buy!

The end is near, don't blame the cable
Posted by: Droidzombie from: Alaska on
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I regret to inform you all that the Zombie Apocalypse has now begun. It was not started by a underground pharmaceutical company, or mutated strand of evolution. It was from the AudioQuest - Diamond 3.3' High-Speed HDMI Cable and my carelessness. After my purchase of this cable, I was so excited to install it that I neglected to head any warnings that had been given about this superior device. I proceeded to plug the cable in directly from my Blu-ray player to my TV… with no restraints, locks, filters or harnesses to contain its full power. To make matters worse, my first movie to watch was Night of the Living Dead. The second the movie started hordes of zombies started to pour forth from my TV biting gnashing at everything. Luckily my girlfriend and I grabbed our prepped zombie survival supplies and were able to escape quickly. Now I write this review deep in the furthest barren parts of Alaska stocking food and surviving. I would have never thought that I would have been the cause of the enviable apocalypse. Please forgive me, and FYI I wasn’t able to turn off the TV.
