    Its as simple as this. If you are purchasing HDMI 2.0/2.0a cables just find the cheapest ones from any brand. the reality is that one is not that much better than an other even with all the extras like gold plating,extra shielding etc. Those things just make it so it seems you need to spend more than it is.If you don't belevie me just look up articles on HDMI 2.0 cables in any tech news site

    I purchased this to view iPad & iPhone content on my TV (together with the apple connector). After reading an article on PC magazine about HDMI cables, I determined that an inexpensive one online for about $10 would meet my needs so I returned this and my online purchase is working great. I'm sure this cable works just fine, but the cheaper one meets my minimal needs.

    Has a "Short"

    Not sure what to call it other than a short, but this HDMI cable periodically caused video signal noise: jagged lines across the screen. I eliminated obvious problems such as cross interference between other cables and electrical cords. Still had the problem. I don't recommend this brand.

    Bought and returned these cables after doing a little research into the advantage of high end HDMI cables vs bargain brand cables. I paid 29.95 for one "8 ft" cable and then found a two pack of 9 ft cables of the same quality for 19.95. As long as the cables have the same specs the more expensive ones are not going to improve video or sound.

    I bought this to charge my cricket burner and it won't fit!!! I was going to see if there was a adapter for it but my cat chewed it up! Haha I can't stay mad at him though.! He is always getting into things. He once ate half a package of hot dogs! The little scamp is always eating my food.

    I don't think this product is the best quality as far as fitting onto the back of the TV connections or for durability. It's replacing another Rocketfish HDMI that stopped working after about 2 years. But when you need an HDMI cable right away this one will work ok. Not the best price or quality.

    Not worth the money

    The cashier said that I “needed” to have this cable to get the best picture when using this 4K tv. I switch back and forth with my regular HDMI, zero difference. None. Not worth spending $30-50 dollars on this. Use your old ones.

    I bought these cables for my new tv, but not sure if they are worth the extra money, still having sound skipping using the ARC setting to the sound bar. Others say they are the best, but I don't see much difference from the generic cables I bought ad used.

    I needed this to connect my phone to the TV. Then I read an article online that said the high quality, high priced HDMI cables are no better - especially at a short distance - than the cheaper ones. Bought a cheaper cable & it works great.

    the length was too short for how we wanted to install our tv, which was to have the TV come out from the wall. May be fine for basic mounting, but if you want to have your TV come out from the wall you will want 12"

    The cable provider I use said this was not required for my 4K tv because the cables they use are all that is necessary for my tv's performance. I honestly can't say if this is a good product or not because I returned it.

    After much research turns out HDMI cables avaiable after 2013 are all about equal. Braided cable actually hinders pulling through A.V cabinets etc. We must be paying for the over the top packaging.

    Not sure if it's the wrong type of cord for my LED Samsung, or if my new Samsung isn't the best, but I don't think the picture is as clear as it should be. I might look into trying a different brand cord.

    Oversold by our sales person. We didn't need it, never opened it, went to return it and learned about a 15 day return policy. Not happy.

    These are quality cables but bit on expensive side. HDMI cables have supposed to have come down in prices even for the quality ones
