    Don't get sucked into high-priced cable

    I bought this cable from BestBuy and another from Monoprice.com after I did my home work. I use them both today. This one is $199. The other $17. The $17 cable transfers data at 18Gbps and is compatible with any HDMI 2.0 device and 24 AWG. This $199 cable is not. It runs at 10.2 Gbps and is HDMI 1.4 compatible. Although a good cable, it is mainly a huge cash cow for the maker. Monstor cables, AudioQuest cables. . . such a waste of money. I won't make that mistake again. 2 stars because it is way over priced. Best Buy should understand the products they sell and guide customers appropriately. I am posting because that did not happen. I have a Samsung 75" UHD 4K TV, Pioneer Reciever and Blu-ray player all purchased at BestBuy. I also have a HTPC, Xfinity One, and an Xbox attached.

      AudioQuest Customer Service

      Hello, sorry you did not have a great experience with the AudioQuest cable. I wanted to mention that this cable does indeed support 18Gbps data transfer when used with any HDMI 2.0 devices connected to one another. It will support connection between earlier HDMI devices (v1.0-1.4) as well, to their maximum data rate, which would be up to 10.2Gpbs.
      Unfortunately, there is a lot of confusion regarding HDMI 2.0 and how it applies to component devices and to HDMI cables. Our apologies for the misunderstanding regarding AudioQuest products, we strive for the highest level of product education so customers can make the most informed decisions.
      It looks like you have a sweet setup with the Samsung 4K TV, hope you enjoy your home theater listening experience regardless of which cables you wind up using. audioquest

    Cable failed after 13 months

    Cable failed after 13 months. Picture just goes out. Have to wiggle the cable at the back of the receiver to get it to work again for about 30 minutes. I diagnosed by using a different hdmi cable and it worked fine (the other cable). This cable was super expensive and bought together with my Sony 4k Tv, as an upsell item. I thought it was great at first.. but a 200.00 cable should not fail like this after such a short period of time. I've reached out to bestbuy for a resolution, but I have heard nothing back. Maybe this was a fluke? But it still needs to be fixed. Not happy. Use caution when making this purchase.

    Cables Make a Difference

    I have used cheap cables in the past due to the length I needed. These cables make an amazing difference and were worth every penny. It cleared up my picture so much. Audio quest cables are easy to install with and I will be upgrading all my cables to this brand. I have installed many tv's in the past and I can't stress to people how much cables can make a difference. It takes out all the "noise" in the dark portions of the picture and clears up the picture.

    I purchased a 4k tv, 4k blu-ray player and a soundbar. My cable box and player are in the basement and I have a cable up to behind the wall mounted tv. I had a heck of a time fishing the current cable but wanted to have a good cable and the Best Buy guy recommended this one. Fortunately, I had less trouble fishing this one and I am satisfied with it's performance so far. Hard to know if it is really worth the price though. * A song!

    OK, I splurged on the LG OLED 65" UHD Curved TV & new Yamaha RX-860 4k UHD AV Receiver; Tried my old HDMI cables which were ok until I installed the Cinnamon 16-2/5' In-Wall HDMI Cable. It would be a waste to buy the best components and then throttle the quality with my old cheep cables. The Cinnamon HDMI cable guaranteed the best possible picture especially since I had to span such a long distance. Cinnamon is worth the investment...

    The only way to guarantee a perfect picture

    I tried many different HDMI cables, but there was always something off in the picture. When I bought and installed these AudioQuest cables, I was able to view 100% 4K HDR (verified by viewing YouTube 4K HDR videos.) The cost is very high, but if you want a perfect picture, after spending a ton on a "perfect" and quite expensive TV, don't skimp on the cables, if you really care about what the picture looks like.

    It was expensive for the 25' that we needed. Would have been nice to find something a bit shorter, 20' would have worked. Because we were putting it behind the wall we wanted something that was extremely well made, so we don't have to go through opening up the wall again.

    Amazing Picture and Sound

    I have been recently introduced to AudioQuest after being a Monster HDMI fan for years. Even though the picture is amazing there is no definitive difference between Monster and AudioQuest. The difference is in the sound quality through AudioQuest powerful and picks up the faintest sounds so clearly. Highly recommend if you go big on a TV like a 4K Ultra HD.

    Simply put and expensive but high quality cable that has generous silver content for fast transmission. Bottom line: if you are purchasing high end TV and devices, don't cut corners with cheap cables that can restrict top end performance.

    Durable in-wall rated

    Overpriced, possibly, but trusted name in the audio world. Do use premium rated hdm1 cables like this for the main run (AV / blu-ray to TV) or (blu-ray to AV) to pick up the best sound and video. Was happy to see them identify as "in-wall" rated for runs to TV's mounted on the wall.

    I initially purchased a cheaper HDMI from Amazon, which ended up not being able to pass a 4k signal at 60hz. I then purchased a monster black premium, which also couldn't pass the signal. Finally I purchased this cable and it works perfectly!

    Why Buy an Expensive TV and Use Cheap Cable?

    If you are going to spend money on a TV and buy a cheap, inferior cable - you are going to be disappointed in your entertainment value. Spend the extra money on possible the best cable money can buy and be amazed at the results.

    I had a monster black platinum cable going from my A/V receiver to my TV and replaced it with the cinnamon cable from audioquest. Picture definitely brightened up and the detail in darker scenes is better.

    I've had no complaints about this in wall HDMI cable. Though, it is a bit expensive. Just make sure you connect the cable in the correct direction....pay attention to the arrows

    One of the best hdmi cords you can buy. The only drawback is the price. I hook this hdmi cord up to my sound system. I hooked the coffee hdmi cord up to my blu-ray player for a better picture.

    Costly not sure if I can tell a huge difference but the small circumference of the cable and it’s flexibility makes for easy installation

    Cables are easily distinguishable from others by the cinnamon red clip, which makes for easy identification when hooking u[ a series of power cords.
