  Good value for money

Good value for money, there are other cables I bought for slightly cheaper that perform just as well.

I use it between my PS3 and my Onkyo AV amp.

Wouldn't advise spending more then this.

  Picture degradation on HD Freeview using this cable

| | See all Jase4u's reviews (1)

I very much hope I can be of service in highlighting the problems using a good quality HDMI cable with High definition digital TV such as HD Freeview and essentially a forewarning to those people who are currently experiencing problems with HD Freeview using this cable or thinking of buying this cable for HD Freeview.
OK here's the spill, it is not this particular HDMI cable 'per se' that is causing the picture breakup on the HD channels but all GOOD Quality HDMI cables have a picture issue with HD Freeview reception. Strange as it seems and having experienced this myself, the best solution for HD Freeview is to stick to low quality (and not necessarily cheaper) generic HDMI cables that come with the box or the ones you can buy off the shelf in the supermarket. Also apart from good antenna on the roof, invest in good quality coax cable with good leakage insulation i.e. multi-Screen Shielding with Ferrite suppressors, this also helps greatly and try not let the Coax and HDMI cables touch, keep further away as possible.
Putting the caveats to one side, I also purchased this cable recently and I agree with most of you, the picture and sound quality of this cable belies it price, the picture quality is sublime particularly for Blu Ray and HD Satellite, crystal clear and good colour definition throughout. Hope this helps.

  Very good

I purchased 2 of these for my blue ray player & BT vision box. This cable has a robust build quality which I like and does it's job very well. The picture & sound is excellent, what more could you want for the price?

Exactly what you'd expect from product description. Gets the signal from A to B. Also has a strange metallic shell, so it's quite a rigid cable, which might appeal to some people.

  HDMI cable

| | See all asrkennedy's reviews (1)

Bought this to use my PS3 on my new HD TV, and it seems to do the job very well. The heavy duty insulation seems tough and the cable is long enough to do a decent job in any room. Picture and sound quality both seem excellent through it.

As previously commented upon, digital signals (1,0) are either received or not - full stop. Much research has been done on quality gains of higher priced cable - there aren't any!

  Disappointing

| | See all petetraynor's reviews (6)

UPDATED: It was a problem wih the PS3. Fixed now and this cable is great!

I was initially very pleased with this cable as it handles PS3 games at 1080p very well and would be great if all I wanted from my screen was to play games. Unfortunately when I started buying Blu Rays the whole 'get what you pay for' thing started to become apparent. Watching Blu Rays at 1080p on my Samsung 40" screen with this cable produces an awful amount of image blurring. I have been assured by others with this screen that this should not be an issue with a more reliable cable.

So, all in all this has been a let down and I went against the mediocre reviews on Play. This was a mistake and I am now looking into getting a cable that will give me the kind of images I should be getting from my BD collection.

Again though, if you are only interested in games this will suit you fine.
