Just bought some Monoprice HDMI's...

Having left the AV industry, I didn't have access to Monster Cables or straight wire at cost anymore, and I needed a couple long HDMI cables to run from my cable box and dvd changer to my bedroom TV. I needed two 15' hdmi's, so I said screw it, I'll go cheap and do monoprice. Spent $15 after shipping on two 15' cables. Ran them through the wall to the other side and into the TV, fired it up...

Seriously, anyone who says that monoprice cables are just as good as better brands are completely full of poo. I borrowed a 15' monster hdmi from my buddy just to make sure it wasn't the cable box's output or the input on the LG plasma I bought... the monster cable was night and day better. I'm not just talking a small "oh dave is ISF certified, only he's going to know the difference" difference. I'm pretty sure a blind guy would have been appalled at the difference. Motion broke up so bad I could barely stand to watch women's volleyball on that tv. Blooming was so terrible that commentators foreheads looked monotone. These cables are a joke. You DEFINITELY get what you pay for.
