AudiQuest and Monster cables are way overpriced. Ethernet means nothing because the ethernet channel on HDMI was never utilized by the device mfrs so you won't find any consumer devices that take advantage of it.
It all comes down to distance. If it's just a 4k tv, and not 4k UHD, depending on distance, a passive High Speed HDMI cable should work from just about any mfr. Monoprice, BJC, MediaBridge, etc.
If you can get a stable signal with no sparkles, then the cable is good. Paying more for an HDMI cable will not guarantee better video and/or audio. You either get the signal or not.
