That is a good article for your average tech consumer. I don't know how many times I have heard you need a 1.4 (high-speed) cable to pass 3d correctly. Last night I hooked up my new LG 3d TV to a PS3 and played my first 3d movie on it. The first cable I used was a Generic $5 1.3b cable and it looked no different than a $15 1.4 high speed cable I used after it. I will continue to use the 1.4 cable do to ethernet and ARC but would never consider any B&M big name HDMI cables. Not when you can buy some nice looking (even braided) HDMI cables for under $20. I think as long as you stick with a brand on the HDMI adopter list you can feel pretty confident your cable meets spec.
