Where is the best place to order HDMI cables (mainly 3ft) at reasonable prices from trusting outfit? Not looking for fancy brand name but OEM with good quality and lowest prices,

Easy....Wal Mart or Big Lots....$35 or under and I'm guessing you can find a Super WM somewhere in your town so no waiting.

Big Lots had them for under $15 last Summer, but I don't know if they still stock them or not.

$35 is expensive, a 3 foot cable shipped costs less then $10 at monoprice if you can wait a few days.

The one I got at Big Lots for example was 12 foot long with gold plated connects...does monoprice offer the same or equivalent(sp)?

Looks like this:

I bought four 3-footers and two 1.5-footers (basic 28AWG grade) from Monoprice last week, for hooking up my new HDMI switch. Total cost including shipping was about $30.

Yes though the HDMI to DVI cable I bought from them was gold plated and had a protective jacket over the cabling, I think it's a little better quality then that RCA cable.

I was quite impressed when after I got my HDMI cable from them, they sent an email so I could confirm that I actually got it. (It was shipped to Canada, so no tracking number.)

Also, the $5 cable I got from them looks better (thicker cable) than the one pictured above.

I just ordered 3 pair of HDMI-HDMI cables from www.monoprice.com and expect to receive the order by Friday. That would be my first experience with this outfit.

I have ordered cables from Monoprice twice and was very pleased with them, they got them to me in three days (California to Michigan) and they seem to be very good quality and are gold plated as well.

I did not know that monoprice they have warehouse in California also since they are located in Washington state I thought they only ship from there.

I receive the 3 pair HDMI cable I ordered from monoprice.com on Tuesday evening that is less than 48 hours. The cable is has very good packaging plus each cable comes with surge arrester (noise filter) at both end which so many other brand names do not. No wonder so many members are satisfied with shopping from monoprice.com.

Yep. On their website it says it will ship from "Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730, USA".
