The last HDMI cables I purchased the shipping cost was more than the cables. Yeah, I paid over a grand for shipping because gold isn't light.

insano: This is my favorite:

This cable allowed my TV to display a new color that doesn't even have a name yet. This is actually the cable that Seal Team 6 used to capture Osama Bin Laden, and if it is good enough for the Navy Seals, it is good enough for you.


Cancel that, this is my new favorite:

I love this cable. Crystal clear audio and video. My only problem was that the instruction manual was very vague and misguiding. Long story short, I got it stuck in my urethra.

Oh my god...

My wife and I were actually quite impressed with this item. Between the two of us it took 9 days to finish and I must say I found it hard to get used to during the first few sittings, but gradualy became more comfortable as time went on.

Although neither of us paid too much attention to the content, the sheer volume and quality of the paper contained within was pleasantly suprizing. The paper feels crisp, heavy and tough, yet the pages seperate with just the slightest tug of a thumb and forefinger.

The only real controversy this book created for my wife and I was mostly my fault. You see after I finished the last page I was too lazy to replace the book with another and I left the empty cover sitting on top of the sistern. Let me tell you I copped a nagging!

Overall the item was an interesting change, but we found it a bit expensive and not as suitable as the regular stuff available at the supermarket. Together my wife and I have decided just to stick with normal sorbent two-ply rolls from now on, and would suggest others do the same.

"Hilarious" Amazon reviews are about as entertaining as Reddit.

I like the fact that in the "After viewing this product, people bought:" list is a $3.99 HDMI cable.

Yeah, not falling for that one. My suggested items are interesting enough already.

I still think anyone who actually buys those cables is *less* stupid than someone who buys Monster cables.

There are some real winners there:

I'd been searching high and low for a 6.56 feet HDMI cable. There are times when 6.5 feet is too short and 6.6 feet is just WAY too long. The AudioQuest cable seemed to be an absolute steal for a cable that met my exact needs. I'm not at all pleased with the quality, though. I tried to tow my mother's Pontiac Aztec out of a ditch with this cable, and it snapped immediately. I'm sorry, but I really expected greater tensile strength.

I love this cable. Crystal clear audio and video. My only problem was that the instruction manual was very vague and misguiding. Long story short, I got it stuck in my urethra.

Low Jitter, Low Distortion Audio? For this price, you'd think they could at least accomplish NO DISTORTION! I watch "The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air" and Carlton sounds like a Sleestack with Tuberculosis. Next time, I'll just wire the RCA audio outputs on my TV into my Karaoke machine, and at least I can sing along with Daughtry! Confounded!

bemused outsider: Total BS.

HDMI is simple digital, and v1.3 has no trouble transferring data at speeds adequate for any currently used standard application.

This ain't your daddy's analog anymore, where the quality of the pipeline really did matter.


Hell, even if you want to be on the safe side, like I did when I upgraded to a new 8000 series Samsung 3D HDTV last year, you can get some very nice quality Amazon Basics cables with v1.4 and Ethernet for $6 each.
