Otto has it correct.
I want to add the following:
Monoprice's cheapest cables are not as well made as their better cables, so there is always an advantage of getting one of their better cables over their cheapest ones.
Are the ones I have seen fail regularly from Monoprice. I bought a fair number of them, I have seen about 10% to 20% fail. I stopped using or recommending them.
These are their Redmere cables:
They are awesome. They are super light, very flexible, don't pull on components, and are somewhat pricey.
I don't use these on runs of 6' or less. To pricey.
I have not used their metallic series, but they seem to be a bit of an upgrade over the cheapest ones they have.
I have used a number of these over the years:
Their net-jacket cables (snake skin) are great, but heavy and bulky. With today's lightweight components, they get pulled all around, the cables have a tendency to fall out, but they look good and are a well made cable.
I do use these for runs in-wall where I can't get to the cable afterward. I use their longer versions with higher gauge (22 AWG) for my more serious runs.
For SHORT cables, I use the Parts Express branded super-slim HDMI cables. They are well made, and perform flawlessly, and are cheap. They are really lightweight. Not as thin as Redmere, but no active components means they don't have that as a failure point. Also, they cost less than half as much. Those are strictly the ones I currently use with runs of 6' or less.
