I purchased this HDMI cable from Monoprice: Item number 3992: HDMI 1.3a Category 2 Certified AWG28 6 feet.

http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2


I received it yesterday and am concerned if they actually sent me the right cable. The packaging is correct, but it mentions nothing to the effect of Category 2 Certification on the cables sleeve.


If anyone that has the same cable that wants to do me a huge favor (and give me some peace of mind), can you check your cable and compare what it says to mine. Here is what mine says:


E1119932 (some kind of symbol) AWM STYLE 20276 80 degrees C 30V VW-1 HDMI1.3 CABLE COPARTNER


I would appreciate anyones help!

You can't tell. You just have to take a chance. Just buy Monster cables to be on the safe side. It's worth it.

See monoprice's HDMI FAQ -- the markings on the cable jacket are put on there by the makers of the bulk cable (Copartner). So they don't say "category 2" or whatever because it's the cable assembly (including connectors, ferrite cores, etc) which is category 2.


If the packaging is correct, the cable probably is too.
