MONSTER cables are a Rip-OFF. It's been proved time after time that it's B.S. At least with Digital!!!
Here are a couple links. This one from PC MAG a while ago. I like the part where they talk about the problem with the MONSTER cable being so thick and heavy as to screw up the picture!!!!http://www.pcworld.com/article/12177...able_game.html
Another one I like is this News Report. Click on where it says to (Watch the Video). It's pretty good. It's called Packing the Deal!!!http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/2008/0...king_the_deal/
I've been using my under $5 HDMI monoprice cables for over a year and a half and they work great. Hell at that price I can buy quite a few for 1 monster cable!!!
If YOU really fall for this MONSTER garbage, why not buy one of these cables?http://www.gspr.com/wireworld/ps_hdmi.html
Yep, a 1.0 meter HDMI cable is $1000 retail!!!!! You can get them up to 30 Meters. I guess that means that 1 HDMI cable is $30,000!!!
My less then $5 HDMI monoprice.com cable has a LIFETIME warranty like ALL of their cables do. Not like I have cables failing left and right. I don't think I've EVER had a cable just go BAD. Maybe if you have Rats chewing on your cables. I hear the voltage running though cables attracts them. Not really the cable fault.
A HDMI cable sends ZERO's and ONE's, Voltage/No Voltage. You being able to actually SEE a difference with HDMI have such a huge tolerance is Snake Oil. B.S. I could do a blind test on you and you'd FAIL. What we have here is the Placebo Effect. You Plugged that Monster cable in and you thought you could see a difference where NONE EXISTED!!!! After all, you have to justify to yourself for throwing away your money on this garbage.
I do happen to have a MONSTER S-VIDEO cable. It is ANALOG so there may be something there, I never could SEE any difference, and I got it for CHEAP, so it wasn't a big deal.
If I made something, then ran all my own tests and said, SEE it's better then there's, would you really believe that garbage? Because it's been proved time and time again by 3rd party tests that it's complete MONSTER B.S.
