I recently purchased four of the towers, a couple bookshelves, and center (I already had a nice subwoofer). I married them up with the Onkyo TX-NR656 (7.2 ch) receiver. As of yesterday I finished off our entertainment area with the Samsung UN65MU8000 television. Everything looks and sounds great!!
I used these HDMI cables to connect all the main gear together.
I would definitely purchase again, and recommend to a friend.
Buy from the "Best" not from and Office Supply Sto
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.
I purchased my first one together with the projector after installing everything I had problems with the signal staying on or coming on at all. I ran the cable in wall, above ceiling, and plug it in and it would not send signal to projector. I started ruling out item by item ps3, projectors, AV receiver, rca cables, well it ended up being a bad HDMI if I went and wiggled/jiggled/moved the HDMI connection where it connected to the AVR the signal would come on. Well long story short I took it back exchanged it and the second one worked flawlessly without any other modifications except replacing this hdmi. It sends good signal and more than anything it stays on without me having to mess with it. It is heavy cable and it can be a pain running it and connecting it to your electronics. I would not buy it again for the price. But I was in a hurry.

It is too short for the original reason I purchased it but since then I have found a different use for it. I'm happy I didn't return it.
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.
A:AnswerIn regards to Hz, HDMI cables will do whatever your TV is capable of. Hz is a measure that, in layman's terms, is the refresh rate, i.e. how many times does the screen refresh in a second to produce the best possible picture. The higher the refresh rate (Hz), the less motion blur you see. Today's LED TVs have a standard refresh rate of 120-240 Hz (can go up a little more technically, but nobody is manufacturing the TVs to do so); older LCDs pretty much max out at 120 Hz; and older plasma televisions maxed out at 600 Hz, which is why you will hear a lot of people tell you that plasma televisions will still outperform most newer LED and 4K televisions (I tend to agree here having currently own a 4K and plasma). Even the earliest adaptations of the HDMI cable, pre-4K could handle the load of the 600 Hz plasma refresh rates with ease, the difference in those cables vs. the newer 4K HDMI cables is data speed. 4K needs 15 Mbps to produce the necessary 4K picture, and these cables can handle up to 18 Mbps.
Sorry for the long, drawn-out answer, but I hope this helps.
A:AnswerNo... no matter what someone says, digital is digital and transfers sound and picture at 1080p, etc. better cables are built better, creating longevity and quality at the pins (not missing pins), etc. Also, make sure your cables are certified!
If you are worried about the picture you can check the quality of your digital feed, etc. and if you have a great feed and want to get a better image then you are stuck going to 4K, but will only experience 4K with 4K feeds. Also, if you upgrade to 4K you will likely want high speed hdmi cables which increase bandwidth, etc.
I'm not an expert... just two cents from an average guy! Hope it helps.
A:AnswerONLY IF YOUR PRO HAS AN HDMI PORT. MY PRO DOES NOT, BUT AN ADAPTER WILL ALLOW FOR IT. DOWNSIDE IS YOU WILL ALSO NEED AN AUDIO CORD AS THE HDMI DOES NOT CARRY SOUND FROM THE PRO TO THE TV. APPLES GARBAGE INSIGHT YET AGAIN!
A:AnswerYes they will. They are designed to and will. They work great with my Sony 4k and Yamaha receiver and can transmit the audio for an Arc channel hdmi. They are the latest that hdmi has to offer and do what you expect them to
A:AnswerAny HDMI cable should do the job. If you want to be sure it's the best cable around, look for cables labeled as 'High Speed', and the ones that have a sticker on them saying 'HDMI Certified Premium'. What really effects the quality is both the TV itself, as well as the source of the video playing.
