The main question is what are you using them for (3D or not) and how long of a run (over 12 feet).
If just a short run and running 1080p/3D just get one of their "high speed" cables.
As for 24 and 28 AWG: that is the size or thickness of the wire IE the gauge of the wire. The longer the run, especially if 15 ft or more I would recommend the 24AWG. If going 25ft or more I would recommend the 22AWG. I have several runs over 35ft and at least one 75ft and the 22AWG has worked flawless and passes full 1080p. However, the 22 and 24 AWG HDMI cables are quite thick thus aren't always a good choice for tight situations/applications.
Redmere is their newest category which guarantees/ allows 3D/1080p over longer runs yet with a thinner more compliant cable. I just ordered two more 30 ft cables from them and wanted to try the Redmere yet they have been out of stock thus can't comment more than that.
