Monoprice does offer a lifetime guarantee, BUT only one line is Certified Premium High Speed,
Available in lengths from 3'-25' priced from $4.00-$20.00
Easier to be sure than sorry. Go ahead, read through the OPPO UDP-203 owners thread... 12,000+ posts, easily over 1000 of those are people who have unsolvable problems, until they gave in and just got the right cable, a premium certified cable.
Probably 200 posts are people who didn't believe it could possibly be a cable. They wasted days or weeks troubleshooting, throwing blame here and there, with others trying to help, saying just get the right cable. When they finally did, they still couldn't believe it, but after everything short of buying all new AVR, UDP player, and display, the proof was right there. The cable did indeed make and/or break the entire system.
Whether you spend $1000 or $20,000 on a system, why let a a $30-$100 set of HDMI cables ruin it?
Again, great that your cable, and some others have luck with the non-certified stuff, but I don't want the frustration and grief. I want to spend my time enjoying viewing, not troubleshooting.
I hope yours will keep working, but there is a good chance that it may quit after a firmware update to one of your components when a new standard like Dolby Vision gets enabled. (Random example)
Do it right, do it once. Save yourself some grief, look for the Premium Certified Seal!
OK, I'm probably done with this subject.
