      Answer

      Yes and it will work great if your tablet or laptop has a HDMI output port - and hopefully your TV has the HDMI input port! It helps the speed, the clearer picture and better sound.

        Answer

        Yes, these cables will carry HDMI 2.0 signals. Most HDMI cables are overpriced. As long as your cables support the high speed signals then it doesn't matter what their price is. They will all perform the same, since the signals are digital and not analog.

          Answer

          Yes using a HDMI cable will make your picture and sound more clear an crisp. If you are using a HDTV and have HD channels on your cable or are using blu-ray player with a blu-ray disc. Then you will get a better more clear picture. If you are currently not using a HDMI cable then you are going to see a big difference between regular SD TO HD.

            Yes, absolutely. If your computer does not have an HD input/output, you can buy a USB adapter and it works perfectly. I use my HDTV as a computer monitor as well.

                Answer

                HDMI is a standard protocol for sending audio video signals, much like USB or an old serial port on a computer. So if your devices are HDMI compatible, it's just a matter of having the right connector. This cable has full size connections, your phone likely has a mini HDMI, so this probably won't work. You'll need to match the connectors for your specific phone. If you have a smart tv, or a dongle like Amazon tv or apple tv, you could wirelessly connect through those devices.

                  Are HDMI cables ever "bad," or "lemons?"   (10 Answers)

                  I bought an Insignia 8-ft HDMI cable. I am trying connect a Toshiba DVD player to a Sumsung Series 6 (55") smart TV, but it is not being recognized as a valid port. Before I have the TV port investigated, is it possible that the cable could be the problem? Thank you.

                    Cables can always go bad. This is do to plugging in and out, or cables bending near connector. The cable is made of multiple small wires inside the sheath. These wires can break inside. Whenever I come across the problem your having I swap the cable to prove or eliminate it as a problem. It is easiest and cheapest fix.
