I need a 30 foot long cable to complete the run between my receiver and projector, but I got a little worried reading that cables over 25 feet don't seem to be High Speed?

The cable I'm interested in is a BJC Belden Series-1 Bonded-Pair HDMI 30 ft cable (via Blue Jeans Cables) but it says that it's standard and high speed. Will it still be able to do 3D/1080p and be near the same quality as a high speed cable?

Also, if it can, would it be best to use a shorter BJC Belden Series-1 Bonded-Pair HDMI from my Blu-ray player to my receiver so the HDMI cables are exactly the same through the entire process? Or does it matter if the HDMI cable from the projector to the receiver is a different type than the HDMI cable from the Blu-ray player to the reciever?

I've been using this 30ft 22AWG CL2 Standard HDMI cable from Monoprice for the past 3 years with no problems at all. Everything works and looks beautiful (2D, 3D, etc).

Monoprice has introduced their high-speed with redmere cables that they claim are high-speed up to 65-feet. Here is the 30-foot version.

Generally yes. HOWEVER, what I have found is that more commonly the receiver/prepro can cause issue than the cable. I have done installs where I have had sync issues, but when bypassing the receiver it is aok. Just something to put in the back of your head should you run into occasional problems.

Here's an overview from Cnet of the Monoprice RedMere cables:
