    Works Perfect w/4K

    This Rocketfish 4K 18Gbs 8ft. cable transmits your 4K signal with crystal clearity. I have not yet experienced any problems, like some people may see flashes or flickers, or maybe a tad bit of lag in the video signal, I have not yet noticed any of that yet. I've tested the 3D capability with "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D" and it works great, assuming you have 3D glasses haha. YES, it may cost $40, and you guys probably think that's quite a bit for a HDMI cable, but if you want to take full advantage of your 4K tv's potential, then you have to buy an HDMI cable that will output 4K. Cheaper HDMI cables will not do this, or not as well (if there are any cheaper than $40, which I highly doubt). They will not run any cheaper because 4K is a new technology and not everybody has one in their homes cause it's so new. So initially it will cost more, it's how the market goes. I'd say it's worth it to buy this because it will output 4K resolution unlike any cables that are cheaper than it.

    Smaller Things Matter:

    Smaller Things Matter: People often over look the little things that can make a world of difference; like these cables with gold plated ends. Spending thousands of dollars on a UHD T.V. is all well and fine but being cheap on the connection wiring to save five bucks here and there is rediculous. Using the best available gold plated ends cables and HDMI wires for your HD and or UHD T.V.'s connections are the ONLY way to get the full performance out of the T.V. you just paid a lot on money for. Doing anything else is like driving a brand new high end car around on the cheapest gasoline possible. Also its very important to pay a little extra and get the HDMI wires that are rated for "IN WALL USE" not only if you plan on installing the T.V. on a wall and hence running/hiding the cables in the wall, but also if you're gonna just put the T.V. on a stand because these cables and wires are more insulated and thus will delivery to your T.V. more of the signal that they are supposed to do.

    Solid cables, sturdy build and great performance.

    From my understanding the HDMI cables themselves are industry rated as either; standard, standard + Ethernet, high speed, and high speed + Ethernet. The actual HDMI specs only refer to the ports on the actual A/V device itself, this would include examples such as HDMI 1.3, HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 etc. ex) HDMI 1.4 ported devices included 4K signals @24fps, 3D, 10.2gps of bandwidth and HDR at an 8bit color depth, etc. ex) HDMI 2.0 ported devices included 4K signals @ 60fps, up to 18gbp of bandwidth and HDR at 10 and 12 bits color depth for deeper richer colors, better cec control for more devices using only one tv remote, etc. That being said I probably did waste my money on these wires and could have probably used any recently up to date HDMI high speed cable with a decent build quality that's designed to pass atleast 18gps bandwidth to receive the same results. Either way after purchasing a $3000.00 oled tv, I figured a $40 HDMI cable with excellent build quality from a reliable company was worth the purchase!

    I purchased a high end 55" inch tv. and wanted better than average connections for both the tv. to cable and tv. to sound bar. I initially bought the Rocketfish HDMI cable with HDR to improve overall picture quality. It is excellent and a good choice without overpaying. My sound bar came a few days later. It is made by Denon, so I knew it should deliver both good sound and quality build. The package included a factory HDMI cable, but the cable was not what I expected. So, back to Best Buy for an upgrade. I chose another Rocketfish HDMI/HDR cable, installed it and what an incredible difference in sound quality! To be honest, I had considered returning the sound bar because of sound quality. Now, I am extremely happy that I kept the Denon. What a difference these connector cables can make! You cannot go wrong with this choice!

    I recently purchased an UHD/4k tv to replace my ageing plasma tv. I had my new tv hooked up the same way as before, of primary interest is the HDMI from my cable box to my Xbox and then to my tv. Never had a problem so I basically just swapped tyre tv's using the same cables. I started getting lip sync issues that I could not figure out. I decided to swap cables and bought these. Thankfully they were on sale and available in store. Since these were rated at a high throughput rate, and weren't too expensive, I went with these. They are nicely constructed and come across as well made and relatively high end. This cable completely fixed my problem. My only issue was one didn't engage well and required a bit of force, not a lot but a bit more than just sliding it in the receptacle. If you're having a sync problem these are worth a try. I don't know if another less expensive would do the trick also, but I can, thankfully, confirm these work.

    Upgraded from Std HDMI Cable

    I recently purchased the Denon AVR-S910W from Best buy and it is connected to our Wireless U-Verse router. The receiver can also be connected using an Ethernet cable from the U-Verse gateway unit. I bought these cables for ATT U-Verse Box to connect to the Denon AVR and the other high speed cable from the AVR to the 50" Plasma TV. I just wanted to upgrade these rocketfish 4K, Ultra HD compatible cables w Ethernet compatibility, from the old standard ones. When 4K streaming and 4K TV broadcasting become the norm, then I will be all ready upgraded to accept a 4K, UHD TV for the best picture quality! These cables were on sale at BB and noticed on the box the cables are UL approved and of In-Wall Quality, coupled with a Lifetime Limited Warranty. These rocketfish cables are Best Buys trademark.

    I bought this Rocketfish-HDMI to replace one of lesser value (that I bought elsewhere) that broke almost instantly under my daughter's handling. One of the sales associates helped me decide on this brand and she was so very knowledgable. I saw that this brand was built to last and it works perfectly for the needs of my teenager. She is an artist and wanted to connect her MacBook laptop (which we bought at BestBuy) to her Vizio TV (which we bought at BestBuy). I think I am seeing a trend here about where to buy all of my electronics! She was able to transfer her sketches from her laptop screen to the bigger TV screen. She is so happy with the results, which makes mommy happy too. Thanks BestBuy for stocking higher end merchandise that DOESN'T break after a few uses!

    My bf and I just purchased a 4k tv. But when we plugged our devices using our existing hdmi cable, we got disappointed. My son advised us to get a good hdmi for better picture quality. I usually order lots of stuff online, but we dont want to wait for 2 days so we decided to go to Best Buy and we're glad we did. The store associate helped us and didn't even forced us to buy anything. He is very knowledgeable and since best buy has a good return policy, we decided to get an hdmi cable just to give it a try. Well, we were surprised to see the difference of the picture. A little pricey but worth it. Great buy

    I got this one mostly because I knew nothing about hdmi cables other then I needed one and I needed one right away. It happened to be on a half off or so sale at the time so it wasn't as much of a waste as maybe to others. In reality I've had no issues with it, it transfers like it should and the pictures come out great. However after now owning 5 devices all with different brand hdmi. I found out that my 8 dollar one has so far proven to be just as reliable as this reg priced 40 buck one. If you care about extra bucks just get a cheaper. If it really doesn't matter and you're desperate this one will take care of exactly what you need and it won't let you down.

    I previously purchased a Rocketfish surge protector that included this same cable for a TV that I installed in our master suite. The picture quality was so good on that TV, I decided to purchase the same cable for our downstairs TV since we were having some audio & video issues when viewing on-demand titles. After replacing the old HDMI cable with this one, all the issues went away. The audio & video quality improved greatly. This is definitely a very high quality product. It is a bit expensive, but it's worth every penny. I highly recommend this manufacturer's HDMI cables.

    TVs today come with a Audio Cable to connect a Sound Bar and make it that incredible sound you want to hear with great movies. Then when you add the HDMI cable and you get that extra boost for sound that the TV recognizes and it does it seamlessly, it's a no-brainer. Go the extra mile to get the sound you have been waiting for. In some cases you will not need this cable but for those that want that extra kick, it's a great investment.

    Although this HDMI cable is labeled and "in-wall" cable, the sales associate indicated that it could be used as normal. I went ahead and bought it because the alternatives were limited and seemed too cheap to justify using on my new UHD television. It has not disappointed. It's a little on the expensive side considering you can buy $5 cables from other random brands, but I feel like I'm getting my money's worth. It feels durable and it has served me well for the past year and a half.

    Unfortunately, fell into the "hafta have it now" trap. I ran out and purchased an HDMI cable from a large office supply store. I was wondering why my DVR wasn’t providing an HD quality picture. Finally, I figured out that it was that cheap HDMI cable! Don’t go cheap. And, don’t get your cables from and office supply store! Get your home entertainment cables from the “Best” Best Buy. Their Rocketfish brand HDMI cables work very well and are reasonably priced.

    Rocketfish continues to impress by offering Top-Of-The-Line products with the latest features at modest prices! This 4K Ultra HD In-Wall HDMI Cable is a shining example of that. Featuring double shielding & top notch build quality for a much lower cost than a Major brand that advertises incessantly. Connecting the latest LG 4K OLED TV via my 4K streaming source with this cable produced breathtaking clarity, with no loss of detail when directly compared with the Major brand. Rocketfish, once again, earns my Highest Recommendation!

    I was looking for a decent 4K HDMI cable for video output (did not care about audio). I considered three categories: inexpensive dynex, moderate rocket fish, and expensive audio quest. As consultants explained to me, for my purposes, it would make any difference b/n audio quest or rocket fish. The former option is superior for audio output but that is pretty much it. The dynex fell out of consideration because it did not look as solid and durable. Having used the rocket fish cable for a couple of month, I have never noticed any issues. Good cable!

    When you buy a cable don't let the sales people talk you into getting any that may be marginal length for your install, I did a wall mount and felt I needed at least twelve feet, I hadn't seen where the connections were on the TV, it was almost six feet of cable just to get to the side if the TV. I used the 8' cable a few days until I could buy new 25' cables for a clean comfortable install. They would be fine for a table top install, insufficient for a wall mount.

    Originally, I had a hesitation about buying this HDMI cable, but after purchasing it my so glad I did. I had, just a standard cable, on my 4K TV and worked fine! But, once I connected this HDMI cable to the TV, and my cable provider, WOW what a crisp picture and great clear sound. It makes, a huge difference on how you listen an watch a movie in 4K or even 1080P. Definitely, recommend this HDMI cable! If you want, the best out of your 4K TV, make sure you have this cable and your cable provider has a 4K box. Very happy customer!!!!!! Would, recommend this HDMI cable to anyone!!

    I have bought cheap hdmi cables before. They usually perform well for a short period of time. My experience was about 1 and a half years and then they'd fail. This cable was inexpensive compared to some of the higher end products (Which in my view are way overpriced). I just wanted it to perform well with a long life. So far so good. I have it hooked up to a roku 3 and the picture is crisp and haven't had a single problem with it yet. I'm 8 months in. The build quality of the cable seems much better than the previous ones I bought. Here's hoping it'll last much longer.

    HDMI, what more do you want?

    The internet will tell you that all HDMI cables are the same. Really there is no reason to buy a $75 HDMI cable, because a $10 will do the same. But also consider actual build quality- if you disconnect the cable often, or even a few times, you want something sturdy, and something with good sheilding and quality connector moldings. So this is a good compromise- not too costly yet not el cheapo quality. The edges of the connector are hexagon shaped, and if your HDMI ports are very closely spaced together, these might interfere or touch other cables.
