Im sure they all for the most part work equally as well.
I have some cheap rocketfish ones and they work perfect. I ran some cheap free ones too with no issues

Take a look at Monoprice and Blue Jens they have all the information you need plus great prices, and what you need is high speed. You can find links to both on the bottom of the page.

How long does your cable need to be? If 15 feet or less a larger gauge or high speed is most likely not needed. Also if your are not having dropped frame, pixelation or artifact problems no change is needed. Cables are no longer allowed to be manufactured as HDMI release 3D player or from a PS3. I did see one report that a user had not 3D problems with a 50Foot "HDMI 1.3" cable.

We get this quesiton (or similar ones about cables) a lot in the HDMI section of the AVSForum. Please see this thead:

The advice to try the cable is correct. HDMI bit errors produce obvious artifacts. If you aren't seeing those, then don't change the cable.

HDMI cables do not produce reduced sharpness, ghosting, changes in color, etc. Basically they transmit bits as uncompressed video information and, when there are no errors, don't change any of the bits.

For anyone who might be skeptical of the above paragraph, they can always use this cable instead:

RedMere at monoprice I thought it was all hype about these cables until I picked up some for my home theater equipment and must say these are best

Unless you have some unusual circumstances (need to run HDMI 150 feet for example) a $700 HDMI cable won't make your picture any better than a $3.99 HDMI cable. Either the data will be transmitted through the cable or it won't (In which case you'll simply get no picture at all).

If the shielding is defective, you may see sparkles in the picture from interference, in which case you simply buy a cable that isn't defective. But high-dollar cables are nothing but pure profit for the manufacturers and the retailers.
