Garet, I use the cheap Parts Express cables I linked above in combination with Monoprice HDBT extenders and they work great. There are similar ones all over with very strong reviews as well, but at 6' or less, you can get by with the $5 cables if the rest of the gear in between is solid.
At 50+ feet, you have to go to a premium product in my experience. Lots of talk about Redmere issues, so it's HDBT, or the Monoprice 22AWG HDMI cables (very heavy gauge) for me. Blue Jeans Cables are great, and I'm not going to knock them at all.
I also run a centrally distributed setup, so the management of cabling is a paramount concern of mine, which is why I love the HDBT in combination with a thin HDMI cable. I get solid 1080p performance throughout my home.
Just gotta get my Crestron switcher installed so really take things up a notch.
