HDMI cable

by reyanaxy » Mon Apr 23, 2012 10:53 am

Is there a difference between expensive hdmi cables and cheap ones? I have a ps3 and I want an hdmi cable for the best picture. Now Sony has official hdmi cables for $60.00 but I've found hdmi cables on Ebay for $2.00-15.00. I know the Sony cables work because it says Sony but I don't know about the other cables. Do they offer the same performance or are the ones on ebay just a scam?

reyanaxy,
If the cost for the length you want really is £2 what have you got to loose by trying one of these.
For an overview google hdmi cable and read the Newsbeat article.

No there isn't. It's a digital signal not analogue, so all this "better signal" stuff is nonsense.

Nope, obviously length of cable will effect pricing but they all do the same job. Build quality may be something to think about but if you're planning on plugging it in and leaving it be that shouldn't be an issue either. When it comes to a Sony HDMI cable your paying for the privilege of the name...
