    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If you don't know there are different versions of HDMI Cables you will know it when they don't work properly. I had an old one an it would not connect my monitor to my laptop. RocketFish makes great stuff and once I hooked this HDMI cable it worked like a charm.

    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.

    Grateful for a really short HDMI cable

    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.

    This HDMI cable was returned for whatever reason and I'm glad it was because it was the last one of its type in stock and it worked out well for me. The cashier even gave me a 15% discount because the package had been opened...good deal!

    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!

    I bought this cable to replace a cheaper version. The cheaper brand has noticeably lag when turning on the TV (Sony 900F). This brand resolves all lagging issues plus an excellent 4K reception as an added bonus. I also bought 4" and 12" feet and replaced all cheap brands.

    I’ve had hdmi cables of the more expensive brands and they did okay just didn’t last too long. I really only used them to connect my laptop or Xbox to my tv. However, this one has given the best quality and doesn’t wear and tear so easily in transport. Excellent for the brand and even better for the price!

    I don’t like the excessive cables hanging all over the place. This was the perfect length I needed and looks much cleaner. You can use a string to measure the distance so you have a more accurate measurement or just add a few inches if you’re using a measuring tape.

    The quality is amazing while it is hard to tell if this will support 4k/60fps i am sure it will with the HDR UHD listings the connections are strong and the cable is thick and won't lose connection. only thing i don't like is the price of these are really expensive

    This HDMI cable is the Bet Buy in house brand. The cable is reasonably well built and performs well. The movement towards 4K and HDR content means that most consumers will need to replace their aging HDMI cable with newer ones in order to support the higher throughput needs of 4K content.
