The general consensus is: HDMI cables either work or don't. They transmit data....0's and 1's.
Sure there are now 2nd and 3rd gen HDMI, bust as long as any signal gets through, it worx.
With that said, if a cable is poorly manufactured, it may fail at the connection end, come unfrayed, et al.
However, I don't think anyone has had any problems with Monoprice's HDMI.
For the record I am using two HDMI cabled from Biglots, that cost $5 each, that I bought about two years ago.
No problems yet...
Now if your device has ARC, or is super new, you may want to go with an HDMI 2 cable, but if it's an older device, the cable should not matter. YMMV.
