  Dont waste your money

hdmi isnt like analogue signals they dont degrade its a signal of 0's and 1's so there isnt gonna be much difference between an expensive one and cheap one. the signal either gets through or it dont. only advantage to expensive ones is a better build quality but as far as image quality you wont find a difference

Been using one of these on PS3 and DVD recorder for nearly a year now.

Paid £45 each for them from other web sites, but at this price total bargain!!

Night and day between QED and cheap HDMI cables, fantastic picture quality on PS3 and DVD player.

Buy one!!

  Expensive HDMI cables make little difference

| | See all Necromancer's reviews (11)

Been a HiFi nut for 25 years so I know a thing or two about the subject, do not be conned by extra price HDMI cables, in my opinion they make virtually no difference. I have tried running expensive HDMI cables i.e. from QED, Ixos, Chord etc costing between £20-£60 and these make virtually no difference over an HDMI costing £5. Currently all you need to ensure is they are 1.3a compatiable, certified 1080P.

  Astonishing performance for the money

| | See all liveinabin's reviews (1)

I'd read a lot about the 'fact' that, since HDMI cables are all digital, a more expensive cable wouldn't cut it. So, since I needed two cables, I decided to take the pepsi challenge.
Bought one of these QED Qunex - £35 and a (still very good) Techlink Wires cable - £22.
Set the PS3 up to our (not even hugely expensive) Samsung flat panel and, with the same still picture on the screen, switched between the two cables. Now, it was no use me taking the test (as I knew which was which) so I got the wife (who is not technically minded and purports to not being able to tell mp3 from CD) to look and tell me what was best.
I was surprised how resolutely she chose the Qunex. Her reasons (and I agree) were that, while both pictures were sharp and free from any artefacts, the colours from the Qunex were just truer and the gradients smoother.

Not sure what makes it better. I presume the higher quality manufacture reduces the need for the screen to perform error correction on the signal, but I'm no expert. However, I know what I'm seeing and it's definitely better.

So, in summary. This is noticeably better than even a quality £22 cable, even on a regular 720p LCD TV. Given that, it's going to be MILES better than the piece of cable they package-deal in with your new PS3/Blu-Ray player. For a sub-£1000 TV, I would have thought this is as good as you're going to want to go. I really doubt you'll see much difference with a £200 cable. Oh, and remember, this is just reviewing the Qunex - I'm not vindicating other rip off cables (Currys and your £80 Monster cable nonsense!).

Hope this has been of help, it really is worth the money.

Do not be fooled, you do not need a high-quality expensive hdmi cable for short cable runs such as this. The only way this will improve the picture is if your existing cable is faulty!

  hdmi cable

| | See all baileybridger's reviews (1)

i bought this to replace my supplied cable for the xbox 360 which was loose causing me to loose signal. This excellent cable completely remedied the situation and gave in my opinion a slightly better picture. THANKS PLAY WELL PRICED KIT RELIABLE SERVICE AS USUAL.

Well about this cable there is too much hype! I was using different companies and sky HD HDMI leads before than as per some online reviews and recommendations I was forced to think that what is the point Driving Marc if you use cheap quality petrol....

Last week I bought 3 QED HDMI-P cables for my Sky HD (1m), Samsung HD870 DVD player (1m) and for my Sony DG910B AMP (2m).

Wola!

There was huge difference in picture and sound is like I am in movie.... NOT!

It gives same picture quality and same sound quality as I was getting before. I ask my wife to check it as well may be I was that time unable to see any difference or my glasses were frost due to cold weather... but that was not the case.

I still do believe to have good cables (expensive ones) when you have good system, but in this particular case/experience I see no difference.

So, I will suggest anyone, do buy good cables but DO NOT spend EXTRA too much on it. About QED if any one already installed good quality 1.3 HDMI cables than there is no point to buy it.

PS: Don't ask about its colour....

  Simply superb

| | See all FastLane's reviews (12)

Use this cable with my Samsung HD-860 upscaler to Samsung 37" LCD TV. Excellent results. The colours are much more vibrant and pin sharp quality. I can't imagine that true hi-def could look much better than this. Definately worth the money. Just one thing....why on Earth did they colour it purple??? Doesn't really matter, I mean it's behind the set anyway, but still it does make me wonder...

  Amazing difference in picture quality

| | See all doonster's reviews (9)

If you are one of those people using your "Free" hdmi cable that came with your dvd player / Sky HD box or PS3 then you need this cable.
The visual difference is instantly noticable and if you have already spent a shed load of money on HD audio/visual equipment you owe it to yourself to view it in the best possible way.
