No offense, but discussing the brand of an HDMI cable is the most useless thing ever.

I had handshake issues with several different brands of hdmi cables between my yamaha and marantz avr's with my samsung tv using arc.

I use bluejeans hdmi cable now and no more handshake issues. obviously if it works it works, but something must be different in my case as the previous hdmi cables had problems and the new one doesnt.

Power: Marantz sr7008, NAD C 275Bee x 2, Video: Oppo 103, Samsung 75un6300
Speakers: Focal aria 948, Focal cc900, Klipsch synergy KSF 10.5 Subs: Rythmik FV25HP, Rythmik FV15HP

Aurum Ultra Series off of Amazon - so far I cannot tell a difference from what the Best Buy guy told me wouldn't work.

Well depends why one discusses it for. Of course, it is all digital, so it works or not..but there will always be people that will pay more just for better looking stuff. Or for stuff that will have bigger chance to work 100%, just to avoid wasting time on returns and so on.

I have had issues with older HDMI cords but not for several years now. Mostly involving networking issues between game consoles and my television.

I've had good luck with Monoprice Luxe cables. They seem to run long distances without many problems.

Amazon Basics

I bet monoprice has some cheap ones too

I've never bought one of their hdmi cords but they tend to be very competitive with Amazon Basics

Completely disagree w/ this. If you run these, then you just kicked your system up a few notches:

https://www.amazon.com/AudioQuest-Di...ds=hdmi+cables

One of the better reviews:

"I decided to pull the trigger and purchase this cable because my Samsung 85 inch 4k HD 3D TV ($40,000 if you are curious, fantastic TV, only had to re-finance my house 4 times and sell a kidne. I only need one so why not right?) just wasn't getting the best with its supplied cable.
When the product arrived, which it did so in a timely manner (2 days 4 hours 26 minutes 41 seconds) I was surprised at how superb the packaging was. When I released it from its restraints I gently plugged the cable into the required ports.
This is where I was amazed. The picture looked better than it had before which was already fantastic. Now I could literally touch the characters and feel their pain and happiness in movies (this became a problem in several war movies as my wife took 3 rounds to the chest and in the arm, don't worry she is in ICU being patched up). The audio sounded like that of a cascading waterfall while an ocestral symphany played Beethoven's 7th. I shed tears just thinking about it.
Now the reason I am giving it an average 3 stars is because of one major issue that may be ,to others, a deal breaker. After 2 weeks of enjoyment the Samsung TV I mentioned earlier and my blue ray player both absorbed the power of this cable to the extent they transformed into fighting robots and have destroyed my beloved house. I am now living in my parents house and lost all my possessions."

Another vote for Monoprice.

I need music every day. If I'm not listening to music, I'm listening to stand up comedians, or watching comedies. Music and laughter keep me going.

I don't do dramas, and try to avoid drama in my life as well.

Monoprice for me as well. Not just HDMI....i think every wire/cable in my HT setup is from Monoprice.

I use one of their Luxe Series (25ft) for HDMI to Projector and then some Premium Ultra Slim High Speed of various sizes(3-6ft) elsewhere.

Monoprice, there is zero difference between a $3 dollar monoprice vs. $80 dollar Monster/other over priced brand.

When my home theater was installed, my installer only uses the high end brands, I let him put in one, I asked him to use my monoprice for my second run to the projector, there is zero difference between the two.

If an installer or anyone tells you different, either they are misinformed, or its because of the large profit margins they make on the stuff. I used to have access to getting the wires etc. at cost, the markup on Monster etc. is insane.
