I was asking in the computer section, I need a 25ft VGA cable to connect a PC to my Sharp XV-Z2000 projector... the VGA cable is simply so I can surf the net and play MP3's and have the windows media player graphics on the big screen... I'm not going to play DVD's from the computer and am not concerned about quality resolution whatsoever... as such, several recommendations were made on where to buy a 25ft VGA cable, all were well under $50 bucks... cool :)


I also recently bought a 45ft Silver Serpent Subwoofer cable for like $184 bucks... and was told that I could have gotten a way cheaper sub cable and had just as good a quality....


I'm currently looking for a 25ft DVI-HDMI cable to connect the projector to my Denon 4806 projector... This cable is the lifeline of picture quality.


I've found DVI-HDMI cables at 25ft anywhere from $50 bucks up to $200 bucks... I dont want to get bent over again for cable if I can get just as good a picture quality from a less expensive cable.


I'm new to all this stuff... what and where would you recommend for a 25ft DVI-HDMI cable?


Thanks,

Mark

I dont mind spending $300 bucks for a HDMI-DVI cable if its worth it as this is the main artery of the projector... so what would you recommend?

25FT HDMI Male to DVI-D Male CABLE for HDTV PLASMA DIGITAL VIDEO

High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is the first industry-supported, UNCOMPRESSED audio/video interface.


Transfers at rates up to 5 Gbps!


This cable connect DVI devices to HDMI devices for DVD, satellite boxes, LCD, projectors, plasma and HDTVs.


HDMI is fully backward-compatible with DVI that handles digital data transfers at rates up to 5 Gbps!


HDMI provides an interface between any HDMI-enabled audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD player, and A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor or projector.

HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable.

It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.


What is AWG?

American Wire Gauge (AWG) is a U.S. standard set of non-ferrous wire conductor sizes. The "gauge" means the diameter.Since thicker wire carries more current because it has less electrical resistance over a given length, thicker wire is better for longer distances.
LCD projectors? I'm guessing it doesnt matter if I have a DLP projector?
