    (Thats what she said....) Anyways this cable is a beast. Its of a very high quality and I have two of these. One i use to run my movies off my 4k dvd player and the other to run my ps4. Look...the quality differences between this and a normal HDMI cable are small to most people. If your components are capable (I.e. tv, dvd player, game console, cable etc) you will notice little to no lag, no fuzzy or blurry effects while watching full 4k with fast moving scenes. You will notice very clear slower paced shows/movies. The small details portrayed in applicable video games will be very present. Many people who aren't specific about the smaller details or accustomed to these types of attributes of a TV will not care much. I bought this cable because of the amount and quality of cable materials used in this and boy do I love it. If you are interested in this cable, I would recommend buying ONLY the length you need. When it comes to HDMI cables, you buy the least amount of cable that you need to sustain the best quality results. You don't buy more then you need, buy exactly the length you need!

    Nice HDMI Cable for 4k content

    I bought recently LG OLED55C6P TV. I am using comcast cable. I bought 3 different HDMI cables to see which cable provide me the best quality. 1) Rocketfish™ - 4K Ultra HD 2) AudioQuest - Ocean 4K Ultra HD 3) AudioQuest - Sky 4K Ultra HD HDMI Cable As I was using comcast cable which doesn't supply 4k content. There was not much difference with all three. But with Blu ray player by playing 4k contents it make a difference. Definitely AudioQuest - Sky 4K Ultra HD was better quality then others. But if you don't have 4k contents then Rocketfish™ - 4K Ultra HD is good enough.

    The best HDMI cable

    This HDMI cable is the strongest and most compact HDMI cable on the market. The connections are heavy duty and the cord is very durable. These HDMI cables are worth every penny because they LAST and deliver superb video signal quality. It’s made my ps4 pro, 4K blue ray player and my 4K display lightening fast and super smooth. There’s no lagging and I now have fast video downloads. The video quality is vastly improved compared to a regular standard hdmi that I was using before. I know that I’m outputting the highest video quality possible with these cables and that makes me very happy with this purchase.

    Buyer beware. There are many types , grades, and prices for cables. As a consumer, you need to know you don't always need to buy the most expensive one you can find.... it is a waste of money. Personally I am a fan of light pipes (fiber optic cable),..... but they don't make that for HDMI. When you buy a HDMI cable, make sure it is the correct version for the technology of the av equipment you are using OR a. it won't work correctly b. you spend a lot more money then you need to.

    The fact at Best Buy has a couple of options in higher quality HDMI cables without having to break the bank is a good thing. You get to dabble in the higher quality HDMI cables without having to spend a lot. These are also great because they are slightly longer then the higher and cables which are only available in meters. These are available in feet and I’m not talking about converting meters into feet (1meter=3.3 feet), I’m saying that when Looking at the higher cost versions of this cable you would get a 1 m version but, this cable gives you 4 feet.

    Only good for multiple data connectivity

    This cable, is not "4k". Any Hdmi cable is 4k. I purchased a dollar hdmi and works perfect. This aquaquest should not be in the tv sections, it should be in the computer sections, this is a false claim that itll work "better" than cheap hmdi cables. This is only good if youre planning to connect multiple monitors or multiple computers, then when its alot of data passing throught the cable you see it work, if this has insulation etc that is for multiple gaming/pc connections. Dont spend your money if your not well informed.

      You are correct in that any cable that can handle 18gbps can be regarded as a "4K/60" cable but it is NOT true to say that "any HDMI cable is 4K." Ocean is absolutely fully compatible with 4K/60. audioquest

    Just another HDMI Cable

    Apart from being able to do 4K I really cant say I have seen a difference with other cheaper HDMI Cables. I have tried others and the image looks just as good, as long as they are compatible with 4K. Maybe the difference will be the time it lasts? Note: this cable is directional, which means it has and input side (for the content source like the cable box, ps4, apple tv, etc) and an output side (for the tv), make sure you install it in the correct place.

    Just like most purchases in life you purchase one thing and don't consider everything else that you have to buy in order to make it work. Sure, like many who have reviewed this product I feel that for what you are paying for a good T.V., it should be included, but unfortunately it is not. If you are going to spend the money for an upscale T.V. why would you buy a cheap cable to go with it. I don't have anything to compare it to at home, but can say the the quality of what we are seeing and hearing is amazing.

    Heard only good things about this AudioQuest Ocean HDMI cable. So i pulled the trigger and bought it. I already had a pretty good 4k hdmi cable and was thinking how much of a difference could it be? So curiosity got to me. I installed it from my 4k dvd to my 4k tv. Played a 4k dvd made a big difference in my eyes. If you have a 4k tv and a 4k dvd player go for it.

    I have been testing audio cables for over 20 years (since 95). I have tested many HDMI, Optical, and RCA. The ones that really impress and the ones that waisted my money really stick out. The audio tests i ran on this (AUDIOQUEST HDMI FAILED TO BEAT LOWER PRICED HDMI). The Ocean HDMI did not improve any quality in audio or video. My final thoughts would be to replace your HDMI cables with every new TV. RocketFish is as good as it will get.

    Until today, I thought all HDMI cables were the same. I cannot believe how much these cables improved the sound, clarity, and overall, picture quality to my TCL55p605 and my LG UP875 4K Blu-Ray player. Compared to my old cables, the HDR picture coming my 4K Blu-Ray player, showed, slightly dim. Now, the picture shows much brighter and sharper. With my TCL, the cable improved an already great 4K TV, overall. I will definitely be purchasing another for my 4K-ready, PS4 Pro.

    Ok so who reviews a cable. I guess I do..not really understanding The full extent of what a cable is capable of doing...the sales person Said we needed this cable if we wanted to receive the best HD picture Since we were spending all this on a TV..we should spend the little Extra on this cable. All I can say is the picture is amazing I’m going to check our other TVs to see if I should add this cable to them.

    This cable is nice and dense, and allegedly helps speed along a really nice picture and sound (depending on who you talk to anyway). I’m not sure if there is actually a difference in HDMI cables and the quality they provide, but in case there is, this one is slightly more expensive but claims to do high end things. I’m not disappointed.

    Bought this and let it set around for a couple of months before I actually used it. Employee assured me it would be long enough to meet the need. It isn't. Barely long enough. Appeared the store was short on 6' cables but had plenty of 4' cables. This is my only gripe. The cable itself is excellent but in my opinion over priced.

    Made a huge impact on even just audio on my Bose soundbar, was a bit off at first wondering why it sounded so much better in the store. Im a firm believer in good cables, but i was skeptical on HDMI on audio. Added an Ocean HDMI cable and it made all the difference, There's the low end i was missing. This cable is a must if you want your high quality content whether Audio or Video to make it to the output source.

    I was advised that this HDMI cable would allow me to use the one channel changer to adjust the volume instead of having to use different changers for turning it on or adjusting the volume. Never tried the cable that came with the sound bar so I have nothing to compare it to but it works fine for what I wanted and allows me to use one channel changer instead of two or three.

    I purchased this to connect our iMac to our 4K TV in our studio with an adapter. Was looking to get a monster cable brand but saw that this has now replaced it at Best Buy and it looked really good. And so far everything is working great and it is sending the high Quality Video Feed that we needed and HD audio without any issues. So, no need to return it, and for me no need for getting anything else, because it works great!!!

    I didn't have a 4K TV before. Of course, you need a new cable to go with it. Why don't the tv makers start providing one? I don't have anything to compare it with. I have no idea if this cable is better than one that I would've bought online. I only know that I couldn't watch the TV without it. Maybe Best Buy could include a free cable and eliminate the virus protector.

    I recently upgraded my TV, and you know one thing leads to another, which meant upgrading my old HDMI cables. With newer smart devices these days, you gotta make sure your stuff is connected properly for optimal performance, and these cables are affordable priced considering you can spend hundreds on the super high-end cables. If you have nice stuff that requires HDMI cables, you can’t go wrong here.
