Nice find (albeit not a huge savings)

With the code EMP0823, you can get the volume discount (50+ items) added to all items in your cart whether you are actually buying 50+ or just 1

Supposedly lasts until 9/15

You guys forgot a very important thing, shipping fee.
Monoprice is famous at electronic calbes, but shipping fee definitely kills most their deals.
I just bought some cables (RCA speakers wire, coax for Subwoofer, ...). After several times to shop arround, I ended up with Amazon. Even with code EMP0823, stuff from Monoprice is still more expensive with shipping.

Wow. That's just not a quote I thought I'd ever see!

Depends on what your looking at.

In general Monoprice 50ft HDMI is better than anything your getting on Amazon or Ebay. I've bought both.

It was $2 for a bunch of Cat 6 keystone jacks, and some 3ft cat6 cables. Pure copper I might add. That was shipping total.

Jumped up to $12 when I added two three way LCD desk brackets. Seems reasonable, for a metal bigger object.

I think the problem is they just charge you what shipping really costs, where most places hide shipping in the product price because the products are so crappy and cheap they can do it.

A $9.99 free shipping cable on amazon is decidedly crappy. I've bought them.

I usually load up my cart with extra stuff from monoprice until I hit the shipping limit which for me can be as low as $4 because they are only about 20 miles from my house. I could even order it will call but their shipping is SO cheap it costs more to drive over there not even including the time to do it. What I mean by "shipping limit" is there is a minimum shipping cost for all orders so when buying cables I get extras so the per unit shipping cost is lower. I have a handy supply of cables but do seem to run out from time to time and it is about time for me to make another order now!

I have really NEVER found anything more expensive at monoprice because of the shipping cost BTW. I do not know what Elpee is talking about here.

Um I think with a bracket that supports 33 pounds it would cost nearly that here too.

I bought two smile.gif

I am going to remove the base from my second and third monitors on my PC and use one for each. Should work better and get me some desk space back.

I have a window behind my desk here so I would need brackets that attach to the ceiling to do that. More desk space is always a good thing.
