Yeah, so i have been buying my HDMI cables online from monoprice for years.

I feel like a fool. Yeah, i saved some money, but after finally getting a bonus last quarter, i decided to kick it up a notch....make that a million notches.

im blown away at what im seeing, hearing and feeling.

sorry i have no more words.

Seriously I thought 5.1 was great, but these cables bring it up to 11.1!

The only company that offers field-terminated HDMIs, still not worth the cost, in this CI's opinion. The do-do cables are just that, butin no way should you have to spend that kind of money to get full HD and 7.1, 8.2, 9.2, or 16.4 surround sound.. Yes, Dolby has a surround sound with 16 discreet speaker signals.. As long as you feel it was worth it, it was...

Is the 'TaterM' review you, there TheSaint? Thats funny sh_t...

For $1700 you should be able to design your own color....

:lol: at this review...

My friends advised against this purchase, little did they know. I just giggled at them and bought the extended warranty, like every smart consumer should.Before I plugged it in, I examined the cable thoroughly and noticed intriguing details. One one of the cable, at the top of the connector, it says "SKY", on the other it says "NET", not sure what that means.

Anyway, as I was preparing to plug it in, I heard a barely audible sound. I brought the cable closer to my ear, and I could hear the intro tune of "Walker, the Texas Ranger". In disbelief, I leaned the cable against my other ear and I heard a male voice, with a British accent say: "Tea, Earl Gray, hot"Finally, I plugged the cable into my TV upon which my smartphone beeped, indicated that it's charging even without being plugged in.

As I grabbed the remote to watch my favorite TV shows, I noticed something rather bizarre, the tornado warning for my county went away abruptly and since then, all ads are gone. It's been like this for a week. That makes me sad since I miss the directv ad with that russian.

Not sure if it's related but the following day I received a raise and a promotion as well. My libido skyrocketed and I have yet to see a red light at busy intersections. My kids grade reports came in, they both have straight A's across the board.Overall the setup was easy and the cable is working great so far

Its actually amazing to me that they can convince people to spend more than $20 on a hdmi cable. Its carrying a digital signal (1s and 0s) either the signal makes it through the cable or it doesn't. The only things the quality of a hdmi cable affects are whether or not the signal is passed and the aesthetics and longevity of the cable.
