Pros: Construction quality
Cons: It doesn't look like you spent WAY too much on a cable
There are any number of cable companies that try to sell you premium cables so you're assured the best video and sound. Consider that all digital financial transactions occur over Cat 5 or similar stuff at a few cents a foot. I don't think the trons in my home theater are any different from those flowing into my checking account ... just ones and zeroes. Waste your money on the high-priced stuff if you will (I think the cable retailers want you to spend upwards of 10 percent of your budget on wire), I'm spending most of my budget on the electronics. Monoprice? Great stuff, incredible price, fast shipping. All you could want in an HDMI interconnect.
