Buy you a cheap hdmi cable, its a digital signal, either it works or it doesn't. The difference in quality between a $.99 cable and a $10,000 cable is nothing, just asthetics.

I know I know alot of people here dont like monster hdmi cables. Waste of money. I came across this monster cable on amazon for 13 bucks. What do you guys think? Might be a counterfeit?

Monster isf750 hd 9 foot for 13 dollars? Does that sound right? http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009NIAHBM/ref=aw_d_dsc_electronics?qid=1396328468&sr=8-3
Monster does have entry level cables, it looks legit and 13 bucks is reasonable for a 9 ft. cable and being Amazon you probably

will find some other stuff you need and can cross the free shipping threshold.

I typically stay away from anything sold by Monster. $62 off of a cable
Seriously overpriced to begin with. No better quality or reliability than you get from Monoprice, MediaBridge, or Blue Jeans.

So do I, but you will pay shipping on top of this where as Amazon ia general retailer and it's pretty easy to find other stuff you need and hit free shipping.

I've always been amused when I see ads for redicuiosly overpriced cables that have really no added benefit. Since the manufacturers have realized that P. Barnum was right now they make power cables for you audio systems stating they produce much clearer sound. My only beef is with the stereo magazines as they know all this is bogus but never write any articles about it because their only concern in advertising dollars not their readers.

Shipping to my home for that cable is $3.95. Still a good deal. Bundle a few more pieces and..........the shipping becomes more diluted.

I went ahead and ordered that monster cable. Amazon offers 30 day no question asked full refund. Also amazon chat said the cable was legit. Its actually 70 dollars on monster website. I feel its worth it.

You could probably get just as good a cable at Radio Shack. It's your money though. You have to wonder why it is being "discounted" at such a steep price. Kinda makes you wonder.

I use Amazon Basics and Newegg whatever HDMI cables even a Dynex cable along with 2 given to me by Dish net... they all work fine (the same) .

I would not would pay $75.00 or even half of that for HDMI cable under 12" .HDMI cables more than ~ $1.00 -$ 1.50 a foot are overpriced IMO .

13 dollars for a 9 foot well made cable is a pretty good deal. I was just worried about it being a fake or counterfeit. Haha

I'd just buy from Monoprice, MediaBridge, or Blue Jeans and be done with it. At least you know what you're getting. Caveat emptor.

At ~$1.44 ft. not unreasonable for a good cable .
