The Monoprice cables have ferrite cores which I don't think you really need so I wouldn't pay extra for that feature. If the cable is "certified for the length of cable" to meet all HDMI specs, then it should state that somewhere on the packaging or it should come with a certificate. Some mfrs have the certificates available on their websites that you can view and download. You need to ask if not clearly stated. Having a cable that is certified for the length that you buy is important. You may buy a cable from a mfr that indicates all cables are certified but if that certification is really only good for the 3' cable, and you buy a 10' cable, you may encounter issues ("sparkles", no video, etc). And I'd never buy an HDMI cable from eBay because most of them are fake, sub-standard cables, especially if the price is really good.
