Actually that's sort-of correct. Yes, get High Speed if you can. The cost difference is so little below 25' that it doesn't make sense not to get high speed, unless thickness of the cable becomes an issue.
It is incorrect to say that High Speed supports *up to* 1080p. First, there are all sorts of 1080p frame rates. There is a big difference in bandwidth requirements for 1080p/24 versus 1080p/60.
Secondly High Speed supports up to 10.2 gbps in bitrate. That is significantly more than 1080p/24 or 1080p/60. Adding deep color increases the bitrate but doesn't approach the High Speed rating ceiling. The maximum resolution supported by a High Speed cable is 4K (4096 pixels wide by 2160 pixels high) or UHDTV at 24 fps.Edited by alk3997 - 3/29/13 at 8:54am
