    Works as promised...got silver?

    We could get into a whole debate about whether silver on a fully digital transport is going to make a difference. If this were about analog speaker cables I'd buy it more, and possibly be interested in the Cinnamon or Vodka versions, but it isn't and I'm not. Silver plating content is the main difference to be noted in versions going up from here. Truth is they work great as a transport cable and delivered 4K content from my Oppo UDP-205 to the AVR for tv output. Looks and works fantastic and this is about my threshold for spending on HDMI cables. Buy these and don't look back because not a soul has realistically seen a significant difference in the higher ones and even then it's based on your system. And if you're reading this review, you probably haven't already bought into the snake oil of other sites' vastness of discussion nor are you at the level where you have the potential to notice. Sure there are cheaper ones out there as well that you could claim meet the spec and "get it done" -- that's a fair argument. But buy these if you're in a need like I was and Best Buy had them in stock. I'm still happy.

    This cable is probably good enough for about 98% of the population. I have been running 4K HDR content with HD audio and have not had a handshake or connection hiccup. With the more robust standards required from source to output, these cables will satisfy all but those looking for the minuscule differences that are obscure to most of society. They are the right price and offer a great value. There are cables that will have a better "guarantee" of transmission purity (with more features and better interior materials), but in the digital realm, these will be hard to downplay. Only thing about this one is that it is not In-Wall rated, so be careful if that's your intention. I believe Ocean's are the next similar tier for in-wall solution (which really comes down to the outer wrapper).

    ALL HDMI CABLES ARE NOT EQUAL!

    First of all, please do NOT assume that all HDMI cables are the same. They are NOT! This is one area that you want to get a quality item to go with your quality electronics. A low quality HDMI will give you terrible quality for streaming, downloading, will make you have a fuzzy connection. And if you have PETS, they seem to love nibbling on skinny, cheap, thin rubber cables. THIS one is thick and wrapped in a tight protective fabric style thickness to make it much much more safe from animal chompers. Mine completely ignore it and they totally trashed cheap junky cords, cats did. I got a new 4K tv and 4K Blu-ray player. These cables are perfect! Worth EVER CENT!

    I decided to spend the extra money to get this HDMI cable when I bought my new LG SK900 TV. I haven’t purchased an HDMI cable anywhere near this price before, but I swear I can tell a difference in the clarity of my tv, even when watching shows through AT&T Uverse, which are not in 4K. It looks amazing watching 4K movies on a 4K BluRay as well, which I expected. I say if you are going to spend over $1,000 or more for a tv, don’t cheap out on the cable. I will not from here on out and will solely buy this brand, even though they are pricier.

    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.

    Many of you have probably heard, as I have, that you do not need to buy an expensive cable for good sound. I am not sure if they make a difference or not, but the salesman made some good arguments so I took the plunge when I bought a new receiver. I used it in a ARC compliant slot so that I could receive theater sound using Amazon Prime. While I do not know if it is the receiver or the cable, I can say that my surround sound is much better now for all of the inputs.

    i purchased this with an av receiver and wasnt expecting one heck of alot, but after i played a blu ray through it WOW !!, every blu ray i play comes out in almost 4k quality, i cant believe the difference, i upgraded from the pearl to the sky because of the because of the silver wiring inside, they have alot of weird names and can be very expensive, you dont need to lay down 200.00 for one, i saw this through a 49.00 one, im now convinced that cables really do make a difference when viewing and listening.

    Super HDMI cable

    This cable offers superior quality over my old HDMI cable. Recently upgraded my TV to LG OLED. I was skeptical that I needed this more expensive HDMI 4K cable...but it absolutely improved the image. (Hooked up new OLED with my old cable...then switched to the sky 4K cable...big improvement) One consideration...purchased 4' cable thinking that would be plenty long...The location of the HDMI ports on the TV were on the opposite side from the DVR box. I needed a longer cable.

    This is a good quality, expensive cable i guess. I guess because i didnt really see its potential due to again hdcp limitations . I hooked this from my sony ubp 800 player thru bose soundtouch 300 input and yes it didnt work bec my tv is old its not UHD and its connected to my bose by a non hdcp hdmi cable, so blame it to my old stuff. And im not a fan of hooking up all my devices to my tv and use the tv’s audio to play on my bose. So, im gonna return toi the whole bose soundtouch 300.

    We used to have the standard HDMI cord with the plastic around the base of the plug. Every so often the Sony tv would get hot and we would lose the picture, but still have sound. After some comparisons we decided upon these. They were readily available, reasonably priced and easy to install. One push and it is a secure snap in place, no wiggle. Now we watch movie after movie and never lose the picture. Even if the tv is hot. Going to buy 4 more for everyone's tv.

    I want to start by saying first I did return these HDMI cables but not because of any issues I'll get there. The quality is good overall the picture is good and the sound is great. I would recommend these over the Rocket Fish. Now I did return these as I discovered on their website (Best Buy) that they offered an upgraded cable Cinnamon at the same cost as these in the store. So naturally I ordered these instead. Why not a 5 star well based on the cost.

    I had a 5 year old Chocolate hdmi cable and wanted to update to the newer models but I am on a budget. So I heard that the Ocean and Sky hdmi cables were come'n out. I got the Sky and love it, picture is crisp and clean. Picture is a bit better over my old Chocolate hdmi......... WOW!! Right in my price range! I use it to hook up my LG 1080p TV to my Xbox One S....... you can not go wrong ....... Nice!

    Purchased this hdmi to improve our streaming quality on our family's 4k tv. After the initial stick shock i decided on this particular hdmi due to the customer service guy's convincing sales pitch (solid vs braided cable.) It has now been a few weeks since purchasing and hooking up to our tv and I hate to say it but it is exactly the same as the rocketfish hdmi which is 1/2 - 2/3 the price of this one.

    I spent a little extra than I normally would for this purchase, but I have no complaints. The materials that make up this cable do actually make a significanct difference in picture and processing speeds. If you spend the money on the TV/Console/Monitor, don’t cheap out and get a low quality cable. It’s especially worth it for those who love to game

    I turn to Audio Quest to connect all of my home theater and "Bedroom Theater" equipment. Put Audio Quest cables in your hand and feel the quality. This Sky 4' HDMI cable is my A/V to PC connection and Audio Quest doesn't disappoint.

    During the process of moving into a new home, I decided to update all my video cabling on my 3 TVs in the house with Audioquest HDMI cabling. Let me tell you, when your wife comments about the picture quality of your 4 year old LED Samsung, you know you did something right. This is a purchase I would definitely recommend. Don't skimp on HDMI quality. Buy a good one and spend the money. Just don't need to go overboard.

    i would recommend these as a standard for anybody with a 4k TV especially a mid-range or high-end one, the picture is flawless (so long as you have a 4k source) and the audio quality is top notch, you wouldn't buy a high end car and put cheap gas in it, same goes for HDMI cables, if you go cheap on the cables you won't get the most out of the picture that your TV is capable of.

    My tv keep saying 1080p/24p even with 4k movies and 4k player and a 4k tv so I was VERY VERY mad. I did some seaching and the problem was u guess it the HDMI cable.After I purchased this HDMI cable the problem was gone now my tv says 4k picture. My opinion and advice DON'T go cheap on your HDMI cable regardless what people say.

    Already had some of the Ocean audioquest cables and couldn’t get over the picture difference from my older cables. Purchased this for a 4K player. Did not notice a significant difference between my 4ft ocean cables and this cable. Still a great cable and might be a larger difference in the longer cables.

    We bought a fancier Sony TV set that had magnificent displays of colors and sounds in the showroom at Best Buy but not at home. Some suggested newer HDMI CABLES that sent the data in a controlled way from the output of a device to the TV. We finally have replicated what we saw in the showroom at Best Buy. Amazing results!
