When I bought my system, i was going to spend a lot of money on high priced cables, but people on this forum convinced me to go with Monoprice, and i have been so happy, i cant imagine another wire doing better. I saved a fortune, as i spent a little over $20 total for three 6' HDMI 1.3a wires, imagine what Monster would have cost for that!
Oh, I know. And since the Monoprice (that I got for $6 a peice) are 24 AWG compared to Monster's "standard speed" 30AWG, to get the same cable from Monster at 6 feet X 3 I'm guessing would have cost you around $350+.
As far as I have read from people who seem to know, Monster has no advantage unless you're running some futuristic singnal such as internet HDMI, over 1080P, over 12 bit color, over 7.1 Surround , or you are running very long lengths of 35' +.
And even then Monster may not actually have an advantage over cheaper cables.
Luckily Monster them selves have honored the lifetime warranty on my 4' Standard Speed HDMI.
I'm sending it out today and should recive a new one shortly.
Now I will have no trouble comparing the Monster 4' with a Monoprice 4'.
My guess is there will be absolutely no difference. Especially at that length.
But My guess is that if I had a 50 foot version of each, the Monoprice would out perform the Monster as it is a much thicker guage.
