    No, They're NOT All The Same!

    Your High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cable is a vital link in the chain of your entertainment system, able to bring the full quality of your devices together - or to degrade everything passing through it. Operating at data rates many times higher than the fastest home internet connections, even the tiniest flaws in an HDMI cable can cause smearing and color shifts which can make the best Blu-Ray player look like a worn video cassette. No cable can improve the signal passing through it, but this Rocketfish HDMI cable can definitely improve your system if you currently use a lower-quality alternative, such as the cheap cable sometimes included with HDMI-capable products. As an added note - because connectors are exposed to the open air when disconnected, and aren't hermetically sealed even when plugged in, dust and corrosion can enter the connection points and degrade performance. To combat that, carefully clean both the cable ends and the connectors they plug into before installation and from time to time thereafter with a lint-free applicator and a little isopropyl alcohol. A tiny bit of a quality contact enhancer, such as Stabilant (best) or Caig Gold (very good) applied to the connections will help ensure and maintain the best results.

    Quality HDMI Cable

    I was having issues with the picture and sound intermittently freezing up using the HDMI cable supplied by my cable company. I really did not want to spend the extra money for a premium priced Audio Quest HDMi cable so I figured I would try this Rocketfish Cable instead. It was less than a third of the cost of the Audio Quest and has performed flawlessly. I only needed to get the short 1.5' length because it only had to go a short distance between my cable box and the One Connect box on my Samsung 4K television. I will be adding a 4k BluRay as well and will definitely use another of these for that as well. The cable is well made and connects to the HDMI output and input ports with a nice firm fit.

    Its a 4K hdmi cord. It works. Enough said. But there is one piece of advice that i can give. There are a lot of cords out there that claim to be 4K or High Speed. For the most part its true, but you cant really tell if you will be getting one at the fastest speed possible or something slower. The only sure way to know you are getting that 4K speed is to look on the packaging for something that says "Premium Certified Cable". These are, as it says, certified for 4K. Rocketfish always delivers great products at competitive prices that dont disappoint.

    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.

    So purchased many cables via certain website promising the HDCP netflix compatibility. (Unable to view netflix due to correct input and cable) so the other cables would not work changing the port to hdmi 2.2. THIS cable does work perfectly able to view 4K ultra movies and shows in netflix. It is cheaper than the super expensive top of the line *Monst3r cable.

    Short, but very stiff cable

    I had a small 24” tv and Bluray player sitting on my desk, and wanted a short cable to connect them. The cable works as expected, and I don’t extra unneeded slack laying on my desk. However it is a very stiff cable, and it will not reach 1.5’ unless the HDMI connections are straight across from each. It is more like 10” at the most, if the HDMI ports are parallel to each other.

    Does not work with intercoms

    I purchased this product because I have several other Nest products and this was a perfect compliment. Unfortunately this product cannot be installed with a intercom system that most houses in our neighborhood have unlike the Ring. There really should be a viable option for the intercom since many homes, particularly in my area, have them already built in.

    I know I could have gone online and gotten a much cheaper cable, but I needed one right away and wanted a short run from my cable box to the stereo. This works as you'd expect an hdmi cable to work. But the price is high when i can get one online that works just as well for less than half the money.

    I purchased this to go with a refurbished blu ray player on a 32" 720p smart TV. That being said, I did not want to spend more on the cable than the blu ray player. This cable is only 18 inches in length, but that's all I needed. The audio and picture quality is solid. The build quality is surprisingly good given the price. Would definitely recommend this for lower-resolution screens.

    After trying cheap cables just to have the start to fail after 12 months I decided to spend more in hopes to get a cable that lasts. At first glance you can tell this cable is of better quality. It's more flexible and has better tolerance on the plugs than the cheaper cables I've purchased. I've only had it for about 1 month but I believe this cable won't need to be replaced for many years.

    I purchased this HDMI cable for its length (1.5'). It really bugs me to have a messy nest of cable. At the time, this cable was the only one of this length available at the store I chose to shop. I was not disappointed. This cable delivers a sharp image on my 4K monitor... at a great price.

    Have you ever needed a really really really really short HDMI cable? Well apparently I only needed a really really really short one, cause this one was too short. However, my inability to simply measure the proper distance I needed is not a fault of this cable itself. It HDMI’s like every other HDMI cable, just at a really really really really short distance.

    4K TV Cable

    I bought this very expensive cable, even though I have been told that it does not matter, as long as you use a high speed cable. Seems to work fine, although I can't say that I see the difference between this cable and the cable from my service provider that was free! Maybe when there is alot more 4K content I will see that it was worth it to shell out $17 for a 1.5 foot cable.

    I found they do. I have some older HDMI cords from previous HD purchases and had to see if this was a marketing scheme. I set up the new 55' 4k Samsung 7 series TV and first used the old HDMI cords. Although not huge rewards still was a nice picture. I then changed out the old cords with the 4k cords and there was quite a noticeable difference in color and sharpness.

    My Roku ultra 4K was whining about the cable with HDCP purple screen every now and then. But the cable works fine on other devices. So reading through articles, it seems like Roku 4K doesnt like 6ft cable. I bought this since this is probably the shortest cable and never seen that HDCP unauthorized error after using this.

    I was looking for a high quality HDMI cable that wasn't very long at all. I thought I'd be stuck with a 4' cable but was very pleased to see Rocketfish has a 1.5' cable. I needed something short to connect the cable company's box to a new Yamaha 4K home theater receiver. Since the components are so close together, I didn't want any extra cord length.

    I love the quality. They are well made and definitely fit well into the hdmi slot. We used them to plug into a blue ray for an outdoor movie night. Excellent picture quality with the epson home theater projector. I would go for the 4 foot ones next time. The 1.5 feet are a bit short.

    Rocketfish™ - 1.5' 4K UltraHD/HDR In-Wall Rated HDMI Cable is easy to open and even easier to install great for when your system is near your tv and you don’t need extra cord that cost by the Foot.

    This was more than I wanted to spend at first but the quality of the build and the overall quality of image and sound it displays is awesome. I’m using it with an Samsung nu8000 82” TV and an Onkyo 787 receiver and have been stoked about the sound that it provides through the ARC connection on both

    I can hardly believe it: with this HDMI cable, I was able to plug in my BD player to my display and VOILA! moving pictures magically appeared on the large screen! To think that all this time of owning a BD player and a display, all I ever needed was a Rocketfish HDMI cable to see my moving pictures come to life..... it's a miracle!
