    I use premium HDMI cables to bring out Deep Color / HDR /4K in the latest LG OLED 4K UHD TV. This is my first opportunity to purchase a Rocketfish cable from Best Buy instead of the much more expensive and highly advertised premium cable brand. The 2 photos show Rocketfish HDMI plugged into my 65" LG OLED, next to more expensive, competitive premium cables. The picture quality through the Rocketfish HDMI is stunning using 4K UHD Blu-ray & Amazon 4K Fire TV playing 4K source material. I could not see any difference between the Rocketfish and the most highly advertised brands shown in my photo that cost several times more. Examinations of the cable's physical attributes show very expensive materials, with no shortcuts. The cable is very thick (approximately 3/8" diameter) because of the extra shielding in the cable. The plugs are made of cast aluminum, an incredibly strong, lightweight material with the highest shielding properties - the thickness & the plugs are exactly the same as the most expensive "premium brand" cables. Beware of THIN HDMI cables. They lack the extra layer of shielding that is essential to reduce RFI interference, which can show up as color imbalance between Red, Blue & Green. Thin HDMI cables cost less, and are less expensive to manufacture. Avoid plastic plugs, because they lack the interference shielding of metal. On the "high end" extreme, Cast aluminum plugs add physical strength to great shielding (they won't break if hit). This cable made a believer out of me. Rocketfish offers the absolute BEST in quality 4K UHD Deep Color HDR signal transmission with the highest shielding from signal interference at the best value. Rocketfish earns my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

    Great cable, but a bit overpriced

    Having purchased the new 4K apple TV for my Sony 65 inch 900 series TV, I was a bit disappointed when the apple TV wouldn't connect at the HDR 60 hz level, knowing my Sony was capable of the best resolution offered, and my receiver was also compatible. Looking to make sure the cables weren't destroyed at all, I realized they are the same HDMI cables I bought 6-7 years ago, and a buddy yelled at me for not replacing them when I bought the new TV and receiver (who knew). I ran over to best buy, and the sales associate told me that the overpriced ones weren't any different, so I picked up a Rocketfish cable for about $30 after tax and installed it... sure enough everything works as designed and im at the max resolution! The issue though, is that the same "more expensive isn't always better" principal applies to the Rocketfish cable vs something like Amazon as well. I decided to replace all my HDMI cables with new ones, just so I know for sure they are up to date, and Amazon had their HDMI stuff for $15 for 3 cables, all with the high speed data a well. Installed them and they worked just as well... maybe not as fancy looking as the Rocketfish, but for less than 1/4 the cost, its a tough sell to justify buying another that expensive.

    HDR Actually Requires Better HDMI Cables

    I was always thought of anything but the cheapest HDMI cables as a rip-off. My attitude was changed when I installed my a new Home Theater System with a 75" Sony Bravia UHD, HDR TV, a Denon AVR-S730H and an Xbox One X. I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out why even though I had all three components on their highest videos settings, the Xbox would not send HDR10 to the TV. The Xbox came with a "High Speed" HDMI cable. The instructions were adamant that this cable be used, but again I thought that was just hype. With the Denon in between the TV and the Xbox, I needed two HDMI cables. After a lot of switching things around and borrowing my son's Xbox One X "High Speed" HDMI cable, I finally realized that the Cheap HDMI cables I had been using for years weren't up to HDR standards. I went to Best Buy and purchased this this Rocketfish 4K UltraHD cable. Lo and behold, everything thing worked to the highest video settings. I'm not saying that "medium" quality HDMI cables won't work for HDR, but if you've been cheaping out on HDMI cables for years like I have, and your new HDR system won't work properly with your old cables, definitely try the this Rocketfish 4K UltraHD cable. It might be all you need to get your new system working.

    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.

    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.

    Decent cable but the connectors are questionable

    We bought this cable for use with my best friend's 8-month old 46" Samsung TV, to connect a brand new Samsung BluRay player. When we went to hook it up, we discovered that one end of the cable - fresh out of the box, with the protective plastic piece removed - wouldn't fit into the HDMI receptacle on the TV; not for love or money. The other end was snugly and securely attached to the BluRay player already. We were careful not to bend the connectors on the cable nor on the TV, but it wasn't going in. At first, my friend was trying to make the connection. Having done this many times myself, I couldn't believe it wouldn't fit, so I gave it a try. It wasn't going in. So we reversed the ends of the cable, and stuck the "problem" end into the BluRay player; this went in without much problem. Then we took the end that had previously been connected to the BluRay player, and connected it to the TV. This also connected securely. So the question we may ask is, which is more likely to have been a shred off the standard size / dimensions: the Rocketfish cable end or the Samsung TV's HDMI port? I use Samsung products for everything, and I can attest to their quality, so I'm inclined to think the "bargain" cable was the issue. The cable seems to work just fine and does what it's supposed to do, now that it's connected, but for a while there my friend was cursing the decision to save money on a relatively inexpensive cable, and I was struggling (not entirely successfully) against telling her "I told you so".

    Defective, requiring expensive reinstallation.

    I bought two of these cables for a home theater installation that involved fishing the cables from a cabinet with a cable box and Blu-ray player, down to the basement, across, and up to a TV mounted on the wall. The cable is certified for in-wall use, by the way. A little while after installation, one signal source became intermittent. Jiggling the cable at the TV input caused the picture to cut in and out. Just to be sure it wasn't the TV's HDMI port, I switched cables at the sources, and the second cable was fine. Going back to the first cable brought back the problem, so it was the cable, not the HDMI port, that was at fault. I called Rocketfish to request some sort of compensation for the repair (other than just replacing the cable). I was told nothing could be done since the warranty doesn't cover consequential damages. Both Rocketfish's quality control and failure to stand behind their product are troubling for such a premium-priced cable, and I will not be buying anything from Rocketfish in the future.

    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!
